“BEST OF THE BEST”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2011

I stayed 2 night in Grand Hotel des Alpes, Chamonix is lovely town my trip is 10 night for honeymoon and this the best 2 night in my trip. The staff of hotel are very kindly and friendly you feel you are between your family. I booked Mont Blanc room, when I arrive to hotel they welcome us as VIP welcome . and they surprise me. They upgrade our room to Mont Blanc Suite. It is really splendid and fantastic. I recommended this hotel and this town for all of you.

After the second of two short stays in the Grand Hotel des Alpes (the first one unreviewed - shame on me!), I have got only one simple word to describe the hotel: beautiful. The overall structure is in excellent conditions and perfectly located in the heart of the small town of Chamonix. Staff was very helpful and ready to attend to all my requests and my lovely room (409) had such fantastic views of the French Alps that the sight itserlf made my long trip from London worth it. The Grand Hotel des Alpes is certainly not very cheap and I am quite sure that there are several other budget structures in the area, but if you can afford to spend the extra money I am sure you will be not disappointed. One word of caution to the fellow travellers driving to the Grand Hotel des Alpes: finding the garage can be tricky and. although the staff will send you in advance a map with directions, it is a wise idea to check the exact location before you set out for Chamonix. Failing to do that might result in some very frustrating driving through the samme streets of the city (trust me, I know!).

We had a room with creek and mountain view, and listened to the creek all night. Hotel is right in town, close to everything. Parking is underground and hard to find.

Stayed here as a treat after completing the TMB. Check in was poor and we were ignored whilst staff answered the phone several times in preference to attending to us. Our rooms were lovely but spoiled by the noise from the street (now 11.15pm and still going strong). Went to have a drink in the bar outside before going out for dinner and again was ignored and had to track someone down to order. The steam and sauna rooms were nice. Pool was small and cold and jacuzzi didn't work very well. All in all not one to recommend and glad to be leaving in the morning.

This was one of two hotels recommended to me by a friend who has a holiday home in Chamonix. Having looked on Tripadvisor at both, I decided to book this hotel.
Although expensive ( my bill for two rooms for three nights was approximately 2100 euros ), the hotel was perfectly situated in the centre of Chamonix & was exactly what I was looking for. The level of cleanliness was evident throughout the hotel ,
the staff were extremely helpful & friendly, & I would have no hesitation in staying here again.
A couple of things to be aware of;
1. My two sons had a beautiful suite at the front of the hotel overlooking the main square. At night it could be a little noisy with revellers - it was a particular problem in that there is no air-conditioning in the hotel & they needed to open a window to stay cool. I had a smaller room ( but still a reasonable size ) at the rear of the hotel which has fantastic views of Mont Blanc.
2. There is no restaurant but this is not a particular problem given the number of restaurants within a few minutes walk.
If you can afford to stay at this hotel then don't pass up the opportunity to spoil yourself.

This was our second stay at the Grande Hotel des Alpes and if possible this time was better than the last. The staff were particularly pleasant and extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was extensive and always well catered. Rooms were maintained to an excellent standard - towels changed twice daily and the standard of cleanliness was superb. The only two minor comments would be that there is slight street noise from some rooms, so ask for a room at the back. Also, the swimming pool could really be larger. However, for comfort and location it is a beautiful and luxurious hotel - we will definitely be back.

the hotel is located in the centre of chamonix so it's convenient to go out for dinner or a drink in the evening. The building is old but in the good way, it has an old time charm inside so one has to accept the slow elevator and small rooms that go with that kind of place. The reception is very friendly and helpful. In the afternoon, a buffet filled with cakes is at the guest's disposal. Breakfast is good, but I must say the service is not as friendly as at the reception. small detail. Just one thing, we had our room facing the street, and it can get noisy when drunk people sing in the middle of the night when passing by, you might want to choose a more quiet side of the hotel.
