“Amazing!!! Exceeded expectations”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

Great location, very very good breakfast, nice rooms. Very clean and everyone so friendly and helpful and extremely NICE.
Would come back anytime.
We arrived late after midnight. The hotel was waiting for our arrival. Helped us with parking, luggage and everything else. Hotel close to restaurants and gondolas. Have no idea why someone would stay anywhere else in Chamonix unless of course you are on a hostel budget and that would be quite understandable.

Grand hotel in style and service. Boutique hotel in size, style and service. The best of both worlds. Was once a very large hotel, it is now a boutique hotel with friendly individual service from the front desk to the dining room, to the housekeeping. Great central location in Chamonix with a beautiful view of the Aiguille du Midi. Definitely a place to return to.

Chose this hotel because of tripadvisor reviews

All our expectations were exceeded. Breakfast was superb and aside from the usual upon request items were crepes. And they even provide sandwich bags so you can enjoy the quality cold cuts on your hike or ski trip.

And yes they also provide reasonably price wash and fold laundry service. Ie no ironing needed for hiking clothes and underwear. Great deal and saves time.

Only caution is to make sure you use the address to their parking garage in the rear as the hotel fronts on a pedestrian only street.

Quality in every way

This hotel is really amazing, very antique hotel. My night with was really a good experience to be remembered. I booked a honeymoon package the room was in the roof the wood surround the room from right to left from above to floor.

Pros:
- friendly staff.
- location.
- outdoor breakfast is a must to try.
- parking

Cons:
- no A/C, sure no need except sometimes in the summer.

We showed up a day late for our reservation, they didn't charge us, and then they accommodated our family of six with two adjacent rooms, one big for the kids and one for the parents! Was a little challenging finding the parking garage, but other than that it was a perfect stay! Great location for exploring town, hiking, etc.

Hotel's strengths - superb location, very nice rooms and great service
What could be better? Restaurant service is only available for breakfast.
The hotel also upgraded us on arrival .... which is always a nice thing :)

I would certainly recommend the hotel to a friend

We have just returned from a 3 night stay in the Grand Hotel des Alpes. This was our first visit to Chamonix, there to squeeze in a few days of skiing before the season ended. We were delighted to discover that the hotel is the most centrally located hotel in Chamonix. Right in the middle of the quaint pedestrianised area beside shops, cafés and restaurants. From the minute we arrived, the staff could not be more helpful. Jerome showed us around, directing us to the boot room, the pool, the pretty breakfast room and the luxurious lounge bar, where complimentary afternoon pastries and savoury canapés are served to guests in the afternoon and early evening. We had booked a superior room at the back of the hotel as it overlooked the river and mountains. It was not particularly big, but it was very comfortable, beautifully decorated and very quiet. The view is stunning. Breakfast was an additional €20 per person and we enjoyed it thoroughly. A selection of freshly cooked omelettes, eggs, bacon etc were available as well as a full selection of continental goodies. For skiers, the hotel is only a 2 minute walk to the ski lift bus stop where you can catch a bus to all of the main ski lifts. We found that the best snow and facilities were at Grand Montet, only a 10-15 min bus journey.
We would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for luxury, comfort, a fantastic location and really superb staff. We cannot wait to get back!

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel have a stunning view and are very quiet.
