You should definitely visit the starred restaurant. The food is excellent, and the service generally good. The hotel however doesn't really deliver. We knew the location would not be great - as the hotel is sandwiched between a busy bypass road and railway line, overlooking the dreadful architecture of the national ski school. (But the walk to the centre is... More

Our first White Christmas in the French Alps was a beautiful and luxurious treat at Albert Premier in Chamonix. Our room in the Chalet complex adjoining the heated pool and spa was classy and spacious, with a stunning view of Mont Blanc. The bed was super comfortable and the bathroom beautiful. I've stayed in the world's best hotels and this... More

We booked a few weeks before leaving and there was very limited availability, so we took the one room available (chambre classique) for three nights. The room is designed with dark wood so the room lacked warmth and it felt a little smaller than 23sqm. I suspect the rooms in the Ferme are worth paying the extra for. Service was... More

We stayed at the Le Hameau Albert 1er in their suite "3" Aug/Sept 2013 for 7 days. It had a large bedroom with a sitting area, along with a small day bed. There was a stocked mini bar that was re-filled every day, a jet bathtub, an updated shower, small area to hang up technical gear and 2 closets. This... More

This was the best place we stayed on our recent trip in the Alps region of France. Beautiful room, spectacular views from our room, great pool facility. Also loved the breakfast before going out on a days hike. The staff at the desk was very helpful at recommending hikes, restaurants in town, and even directions to Geneva (our next stop).... More

One of the best restaurant experiences ever! Old school French service with great Maître D and outstanding sommelier Christian Martray, in fact all the people working there try to make your stay as perfect as possible. The cooking is really world class, we had langoustines, duck liver and great poularde de Bresse stuffed with truffels. All this accompanied with local... More

The restaurants are excellent, the service is great, the view is stupendous and even the weather was perfect. A choice location with a nice pool & spa in the heart of the alps. Great view from our spacious & private balcony. Really the only thing I would fault was the lack of internet access - no wifi at all in... More

We had lunch in their restaurant with friends; four of us. We chose the set meal; €24 each. The starter is buffet style - plenty of choice. Main course a la carte. Selection of desserts to die for; again buffet style, help yourself (as often as you like!) We then had coffee and petit fours in the garden. Beautiful flowers.... More

The Hameau Albert 1er has an impressive view on the Mont Blanc mountains, as has every other house, hotel and restaurant in Chamonix. It adds to that spacious and well equiped suites (at least if you book a room in La Ferme) around an indoor/outdoor swimming pool and two restaurants, one of which even having two Michelin stars, although it's...
