Ups: great location, helpful, anglophone staff. Good views if you're on the Mont-Blanc side. Downs: the rooms are frumpy and everything is run-down and looks cheap. My towels had holes in them. The room smelled weird. The curtains don't close, there was a shiny blue light on my balcony preventing me from sleeping until very late. The breakfast buffet was...

Stayed here for one night and that was one day too many. It was quite fully booked in Chamonix this weekend so ended up staying at Hotel Alpina. We needed to get a hotel in the center of Chamonix so in that sence this hotel is great. So good things: location, one guy in the reception (nightshift) and breakfast was...

The only good thing about this place is the location. The rooms are beyond tired: the towels, bedding and carpeting are threadbare, the beds are lumpy and the furniture and bathroom have seen better days. The place is exceptionally noisy. I'm not a light sleeper but someone sneezed in the hall in the middle of the night and I could...

Hotel is perfectly located in the heart of Chamonix. Rooms are a bit tired but fully functional. There is no A/C which may be an issue during a hot summer spell. Other than that no complaints about this place, reasonably priced do not expect 5 star quality. Staff is competent and helpful.

I stayed at this hotel with my family last week. The front desk was pretty nice. And the view in some of the rooms toward Mont Blanc is good! It's really at a good location. However, it was too hot to fall asleep. There was no window in my room. I will not stay at this hotel if I have...

Overall: Like most in this price range, this is a budget facility for young Hostel type crowds. Heed the reviews. When we stayed: 2 Nights in July 2012 Who we are: Husband & Wife - American Sleep Quality: Poor. Double bed was frumpy, room was cramped. No a/c. Windows cannot be open while blinds are drawn - because they open...

so we went to chamonix for 2 nights to take a break from our month long stay in Paris. Chamonix is beautiful, the alps, shopping,etc. are amazing. This hotel, the worst. The staff is the opposite of friendly and hospitable. There were I think 2 females and a male. No greeting when you walk by the front desk, not so...

Stayed here for a long weekend ski trip. The room is of decent size and the room is 'ok', nothing to shout about, but it is clean and beds are comfortable. The view is great though as you can get a glimpse of Mont Blanc from the room balcony and also the big square. Location wise, it's great as the...

I dont have a stay experience there but do have a booking experience that has led me to believe that the hotel is very dishonest and is just looking at getting money from customers rather than servicing them. I booked in Alpina through hotels.com in which the information provided on cancellation and time of payment was completely different from what...
