I can't say enough about this hotel's location- it is exactly opposite the bus stop for the ski buses which takes you to the various ski areas(makes lugging ski gear less of a chore) and just 20metres away is the start of the main thoroughfare for shops and restaurants! Hotel is convenient with a ski rental and storage area in... More

We stayed at the Alpina for 4 nights on half board for a ski holiday. The Alpina was in a good location for access to Chamonix and the buses that go to Brevent and Grand Montet. The room was dated but clean and relativelty spacious compared with most of the chalet rooms we have stayed during ski trips. Where this... More

Just came back from Alpina. It is situated in the centre of town, surrounding by shops and restaurants. 10 minutes walk to easy slope (Le Savoy), bus stop just across the hotel that will take you directly to higher slope (Le Brevent). The room was decent enough, old style but clean. It has enough space to store big luggage. Restaurant... More

Lets start with the strong points: - Location, location, location.. Unbeatable since it is literally a few hundred meters aways from the main shopping street and SNCF / Montenvers train stations. - Restaurant: Located on the 7th floor, it offers an AMAZING view on the Mont-Blanc mountain range and offers sufficient space so that you'll never worry to find any...

We had a short break recently at the Alpina. It has a great location for the centre of town and equally importantly for the ski shuttlebus that stops right outside the hotel.Our room faced the Brevent and had a good view although the rooms that face Mont Blanc, although more expensive have a balcony and an even better view.

This is a decent 3 star hotel. It is centrally located in Chamonix and just next to the shuttlebus that takes you to the slopes. The rooms are OK indeed. Clean and wonderful views of the Mont Blanc massif. I believe most of the rooms are facing the MB. The breakfast is good and the breakfast room is located at... More

The location is good. They charge extra for parking & they oversell the spaces so there often isn't a space even though you've paid. There are also only a very small number of spaces for a very large hotel. The reception staff are unfriendly & unhelpful & with the exception of one of the bar staff, all staff seriously lacked...

The hotel is in the center of Chamonix, great location. I found the staff to be very rude which is a common thing in very touristic places in France. The rooms are small, stinky, and very dated, needs a renovation. Breakfast area is great, on the top floor of the hotel with a magnificent view of the Mont Blanc. The... More
