Stayed here with a couple of pals on a lads skiing weekend. Hotel is superbly placed and has excellent access to Chamonix town centre. It is also possibly the best placed for the ski bus as it's the 1st stop so it's usually empty when you get on. The rooms we were in were very tired and in need of... More

Our 'superior' room was a good size, clean and comfortable with a balcony giving great view of Mont Blanc. Bathroom was dated in style but clean. Location is excellent in town centre by the river and with ski bus stops outside. Downsides: 1.service at breakfast was shambolic (but the food is fine). 2. There is a private club underneath the...

The hotel needs an upgrade, it looked quite rundown. Breakfast was a positiv experience. Just 200 m walk from the sloops and located in down town. They should think about changing the bed from 180 cm to at least 200 cm long and get rid of the old blankets and sheets and switch to duvet, Much better to sleep in.

Well, it's what you might expect for a central location, it's only plus point. Despite impressive exterior and lobby rooms are cramped and shabby, the shower from the seventies, and the amenities from a similar period. The TV only has local stations, great for kids not! The bar is over priced. It has a bizarre darts game which is it's... More

I stayed at the Hotel Alpina for a week in January. Some rooms and some floors are more worn that others. Some rooms are much more spacious than others. Some rooms are a lot louder than others. Depending on what floor and which room you have, your experience could be very different. I asked to have my room changed after... More

We arrived late on new years eve and got just about the last available room in town. The person at the reception was just wonderful. However the room was pretty bad. The furniture was from the eighties, the electric socket was hanging out of the wall and the bathroom stank of urine. The breakfast was equally awful. Bread crumbs all... More

If cleanliness is your requirement I would not recommend. Towels and sheets were spotless . However bathrooms are old and in mine tiles were cracked or in one corner badly chipped. A couple of silverfish slithered accross the floor at night. Wifi is terrible compared to other bars and cafes in town. On a brighter note, staff are incredibly helpful... More

I stayed here attending a summer conference in Chamonix. The Alpina is right in the middle of town, close to shops and restaurants, and made for a very convenient base (for the winter, it's not the closest to the ski lifts, but nowhere in Chamonix is that far away from the slopes). The downside of the location is that your... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in a twin room and it was adequate as a base to spend time in the valley. It could do with renovating and the bathroom was tiny but the price was very good and it had everything we needed for our stay. The location is fantastic, right next to the river in the centre...
