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...

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
