Grand Hotel des Alpes
Ranked #1 of 73 Hotels in Chamonix
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Grand Hotel des Alpes is located in the heart of the city centre , right where the action is. Most importantly, it is a property which has a very high level of hospitality. The rooms overlook the mountains on one side and i was staying in room 305 which had a little balcony where you can sit and enjoy stunning views. The breakfast and spa area is in the basement and it has one of the nicest breakfast served with chocolates included too for a sweet start to your day. The team is warm, friendly and hospitable lead by a very efficient and passionate Katia who ensures that all guests are comfortable and truly experience a home away from home. Located on the France, Swiss and Italy border, this hotel is a must visit for someone looking for great location, wonderful hospitality and warmth in this stunningly beautiful Alpine town.

This is a lovely hotel. We had a few days' vacation in Chamonix and the Grand Hotel came recommended. It didn't disappoint. The staff were welcoming, very helpful and overlooked my dismal French. The room was very nice, with a balcony overlooking the river and a lovely view of the mountains. It is perfectly located downtown, within walking distance of the Auguille du Midi, restaurants and shops. We loved Chamonix in general, but the Grand Hotel made our stay. Highly recommended for vacation stays, couples or families.

Room Tip: Ask for the view of the river.

Our delightful stay in the Chamonix valley was due, in part, to our accommodations at Grand Hotel des Alpes. The hotel is everything an upscale hotel in the French Alpes could be...rich in decor, history, quiet, great breakfast, and the bed & pillows comfortable. The staff was always polite and helpful. It was enjoyable being located in the center of the pedestrian plaza on the square with outdoor seating areas, shopping, restaurants and cafés all within a short walk. A room location on the river offered the background 'white noise' of the mountain river rushing closely below if windows are open. A room on this side of the hotel would also involve being located above the 'living room' area of the hotel that accommodates indoor conversational seating, a piano, and a small outdoor seating patio that would accommodate conversation, outdoor smoking, etc. Weather permitting, doors & windows could be open to this area and the room above. If this was the case, possibly a room on a higher floor might be a better option for the visitor who desires super quiet. The breakfast room is large enough, nicely appointed and well staffed. Weather permitting, the breakfast buffet can be eaten outside in the quiet garden area with a beautiful view of Mt Blanc. The breakfast offered was exceptionally varied, fresh and quite delicious. Coffee was generously served and good.

This is my second time staying at this hotel. It was great again. Front desk was very helpful. They made recommendations to our two new favorite restaurants in chamonix, the chaudron , and the la caleche. They also recommended the cap horn and panier des 4 Saisons which were also great. When you order a coffee or drink in the afternoon, they also give you some great snacks. The rooms are very spacious. The wifi works very well. The location is 2 to 3 minutes walking distance to a couple bakeries and many restaurants. The lobby of this area is very nice and comfortable.

Stayed here i early september, had a double room with street view. Loved the room, the amenities, the lovely bath robe and the quietness of the hotel. Did not have breakfast , but had a look at the terrace where I assume you can have breakfast, and the view of the river and mont blanc is absolutely beautiful. The staff are helpful and nice. Both the inside and outside of the hotel has a nice design that fits in with the chamonix feeling, especially love the outside of the hotel-really beautiful. Will definitely com again and recommend the hotel to friends.

Room Tip: if it is available in yor room category ask for a room with mont blanc view

We just stayed in this hotel for one night ina standard double room. The hotel is beautifully furnished and very clean, our room had a lovely smell. The staff were very good, welcoming and helpful. Our room was on the first floor facing the street and we did get some noise from people walking past in the early hours. My only complaint was that the mattress was very firm and the pillow was the hard foam type but the duvet was quite luxurious. Would love to stay here again sometime, highly recommended.
