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

We stayed here during the 1st week of April for a last minute ski break. We remembered the location the last time in Chamonix so it was ideal. Great location as the ski bus stop was almost outside the front door so not far to walk in our gear. The hotel room was clean and tidy so no probs there.... More

Hotel very close to everything: grocery, ski rental, ski bus, restaurants, nightlife. Breakfast was good and with the restaurant on the top floor we had a wonderful view of the surrounding area. Dining room staff did a wonderful job. Rooms with balcony nice. Wifi could be slow at times but overall served its purpose. Rooms a bit dated but looked... More

Stayed here over the New Year and were so impressed that we booked for a long weekend in March. Yes, some of the rooms are basic and dated, but on both occasions we have been moved into a nicer one when one became available. Cannot fault the staff especially Nacira who remembered us and went out of her way to... More

Really convenient location, short walk to town center restaurants & bars and bus to ski areas stops just outside the door. Onsite ski rental was handy, staff was friendly if a bit disorganized. Room was a reasonable size and had a nice view, but dated and not in the greatest shape, and only very basic amenities provided (no coffee in... More

This hotel served all our needs except wifi. To use wifi you had to register for a 3 hr time limit. This gave you a login and password which expired in 3 hours. Then you would have to reregister for another 3 hours. The wifi was also limited to web access, email, or instant messaging. All other apps on my... More

Coming out of the hotel in the morning and seeing Mont Blanc was the highlight. The rooms are comfortable, the river runs next to the hotel, and it is very relaxing to stand there at night and just breathe in the alpine air. Very centrally located. Not much staff though.

Alpina is a huge hotel which is very sterile and lacks any atmosphere. Location is good with a bus service at the door. The bedrooms are large for France with plenty of space. Any service is virtually non existent and although there are staff around, management is not well organised and do not appear to care. The food for 1/2... More

The Hotel Alpina is in a great central location to Chamonix -- the bus stop for most ski resorts is right outside the front door and all the shopping and restaurants are just footsteps away. The views of the mountains are spectacular from the hotel as well. However, it is run down and older. Rooms are small -- our room... More
