The Alpina is old tired and very disappointing. It's not a bad location and has basement parking (quite cramped). The breakfast at €17 is a shambles, toaster and juice machine broken, no one clearing up broken glass or enough staff to clear plates. Like much of Chamonix it badly needs money spending to get it to match the prices charged.... More

Great location but hotel itself is horrible. Tired and old looking. We paid for deluxe room and it is extremely basic and very dirty. I've ended up cleaning the bath myself before getting in it. The 'spa' is vile, jacuzzi didn't work and has grime everywhere and you can tell the floors of the whole place haven't been cleaned. Used... More

This hotel was perfect for us. Rooms clean and comfortable with a good shower. The breakfasts were good. Possibly not where you'd take your wife for your wedding anniversary but ideal for a ski holiday. Also perfect location next to bus stop and amenities.

Hotel is good or a medium rated one. Staff are really sweet and friendly. We were there for a company event. Location is a big plus for this establishment. There supermarket, restaurants in walk-able perimeter. Breakfast is also really nice. Especially as a non-French speaker, i really appreciate the assistance of the staff.

Hotel was alright, nothing special, the rooms were stuck in a time warp and the morning buffet was forgettable. However be warned, the Alpina cartel have a habit of accusing you of not paying bar bills despite the fact you have 15 witnesses and a bar receipt.

Hotel Alpina was unfortunately a terrible experience, we refused the room that was proposed as it was smelling cigarette and wasn't clean. We slept at a friends place on sofas and are still waiting for reimbursement from Hotels.com and the Alpina. The only value this hotel has is it's location without this unfair advantage it would be closed since a... More

Fantastic suite with wonderful views. The staff, in particular Antonin and Herve we're absolutely fantastic, kind, helpful and very professional. When I locked myself out of my safe, Antonin came to the rescue at a late time in the night as well, this was greatly appreciated and as I was leaving the next day... vital. Stay here! Very comfortable beds.

We stayed here a couple of nights and like many of the other reviews the hotel is a bit tired but for the money it is clean the staff very friendly and fine for sleeping. It is located in the middle of Chamonix very close to everything and and a bus stop to the ski areas is across the street.... More

I stayed for 2 nights as part of a group of men on a ski trip. I'd not had any involvement in choosing venues but when I read some of the views I feared the worse. However, I was pleasantly surprised. This was mainly due to the food served at breakfast and dinner. Also, the friendliness of the staff was... More
