We stayed there after a the Mt Blanc hike as we couldn't get a room at Hotel de l'Arve (stayed before the hike) anymore. That said with old rooms, bad wifi (have to re sign up all 2h with your email...) and overpriced breakfast (16€ for small buffet vs 12€ at l'Arve with great buffet) it is only worth for... More

Having read previous reviews about incorrect billing at this hotel, I felt compelled to write about my experience. My party of 7 hired the skis through Alpina as it offered 20% off. However on being presented with the bill we were told that the 20% reduction no longer applied and we would have to pay the full amount. Despite our... More

Rather disappointing, run-down hotel... I just completed a 5 night stay at the Hotel Alpina while attending a conference in Chamonix. This hotel has a lot of significant problems The ROOMS: Severely dated. Carpets date to the 1960's and not in any charming sort of way. Significantly warn and dated. Cracks in the ceiling. I pulled door knobs off the... More

Alpina hotel is in the perfect spot, close to bars, restaurants and shopping. The views from its rooms are unbeatable, whether you have a Brevant or Mont Blanc outlook. That's where the positives end. The rooms are shabby and exhausted. Beds are comfy but small and the bathrooms are a disaster. The price is relative to a busy resort but... More

We just checked in and our hotel room is large by European standards but needs updating with torn carpet and paint a bit dingy. The bathroom has a nice counter with room for toiletries and the heated towel bars are on. We have a nice balcony with views of the Mont Blanc glacier and waterfall and river. Good location near...

The room is fine but the bathroom is old and need to refunish quickly but nothing that make the hotel lose points. Few amenities at the room. No good soap and shampoo.... More

It was wonderful to be in the heart of Chamonix, and the hotel is definitely in a great location. But the king room was two twin beds pushed next to each other and was very dark and shabby. For the price we paid, we were very disappointed. The front desk was not very helpful, and we had pretty lousy service... More

We stayed overnight at the alpine hotel for a reasonable price in the offseason. The room was large with a balcony facing Mont Blanc. It was an awesome view. Although breakfast had bacon and eggs, it was very expensive (30 euros for 2 people). The business center was advertised but unavailable when I asked to use it at the front... More

Stayed in February 2014. Rooms bit dated but clean. Go for a mont Blanc view room if you can. Breakfast ok. Location superb. Right in the middle. All in all ok. Would stay again no problem. Some reviews say staff are rude but found them pleasant and polite. If you have car make sure you book a parking space as... More
