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...

The next place which I visited was “CHAMONIX”, stayed at Hotel “ALPINA - MONT BLANC”. This hotel has Spacious Room and a very good Dining Hall. The food served was Indian Food including Jain Food. People visiting MONT BLANC will be delighted at this simple and economic Hotel. Mont Blanc in one of the highest peaks in Europe and one... More

While staying we learned that its price was un-beatable one! Parking was fine, access to other sites were very convenient, especially walking along side the water was a nice addition. In the hotel, there was a market so saved our time during short stay.

It's neat and quiet, and very convenience, a little bit old, though.

Low budget ok room...no frills, but clean. Front desk staff not very helpful or friendly. Great location and hard to beat for the price. I would not stay here if I was with my family, but it's ok for a guys trip to the mountains. The downstairs lobby bar needs to be open longer and the decor could be upgraded!

Hotel Alpina is very centrally situated and the view of Mont Blanc from the rooms facing that way is wonderful. Try and get one of these rooms, if possible. Two doors along from hotel is a very useful Casino supermarket with an excellent bakery. We enjoyed a few snacks on the balcony admiring the view! Room decor was ok but... More

We stayed at the hotel one night in a really run down room - the cards to open the doors didn't function very well, so we had to take the lift down to the reception 3 times to get help to get into the room. The toilet didn't flush, so we had to use a bucket to flush it !... More

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
