This is the biggest hotel in Chamonix, both in terms of the size of the building and the number of guest rooms. The Alpina is a functional hotel where the guest rooms and panoramic restaurant afford a fantastic view of the town and Mont Blanc. It's a shame, though, that the establishment as a whole is somewhat lacking in character.

    Location 9.07 /10

    Though it is not located at the heart of Chamonix, the Alpina is nevertheless very well-situated in the north of the town centre, beside the Arve River and opposite the Cité Scolaire de Chamonix school complex, known for its typical 1970s architecture. A market also takes place just opposite the hotel every Saturday. Everything you need is just a short walk away. The SNCF train station is 450m away and the Le Brévent cable car is 700m away.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The Alpina's 138 guest rooms are divided into three categories: standard rooms, superior rooms and suites. Smaller than the rest and with no balcony or view of Mont Blanc (but of Le Brévent instead, which is nothing to complain about), the standard rooms miss out on all of the Alpina's principal attributes. The large superior guest rooms, on the other hand, have a big balcony and a breathtaking view of the highest point in Western Europe. Naturally, the higher the floor, the more beautiful the view.

    Inside, guests should try not to dwell on the rather outdated decor or the furniture, which is clearly starting to show its years. Nevertheless, the rooms are spacious and the amenities worthy of 3 stars: flat-screen television, minibar, hair-dryer, etc. Unfortunately, there is a charge to use the Wi-Fi. The bathrooms are fitted with a bathtub and those in the superior rooms have a separate toilet.

    The triple rooms are superior rooms equipped with an additional single bed.

    Overview 7.55 /10

    With its 7 storeys, the Alpina does not go by unnoticed. Although its façade has been restored since, this building built in 1971 can do little to hide its functionalist architecture. However, on the positive side, it is a very practical building. The lobby is very bright, albeit a little too large to be welcoming despite the effort made with the furniture, which includes modern armchairs and coffee tables made from polished tree stumps. The 6 floors of guest rooms, the restaurant on the 7th floor and the spa in the basement are connected by numerous lifts.

    Food and drink 7.50 /10

    Perched on the 7th and top floor of the hotel, the Alpina's restaurant is called the Vista, a name which suits it well. Thanks to its glass façade, it affords an outstanding view over the town centre and of the Aiguille du Midi and Mont Blanc in the distance. Unfortunately, the interior, with its cafeteria-like ambiance, is very ordinary and much less agreeable than the view. Breakfast (served in the form of a buffet between 7am and 10am) and dinner are served here. In the evening, guests can choose between pierrade (meat cooked on a hot stone) and 'fondue Bourguignonne'.

    Owned by the Best Mont Blanc hotel group, guests at the Alpina can also choose to eat lunch and dinner in the restaurants of two of the other hotels owned by the group in Chamonix: the Prieuré and the Croix Blanche. This is an excellent way to enjoy some variety without paying any extra thanks to a meal voucher system.

    To know

    Skis can be rented on site.

    A shopping arcade is situated at the foot of the hotel along with the White Hub nightclub, which opened in the summer of 2012.

    In summer, the hotel welcomes a large number of Asian guests, notably from India and Japan.

    The hotel also has its own underground car park.

      A Relais & Châteaux institution in Chamonix, the Hameau Albert 1er remains the upscale reference for accommodation at the foot of Mont Blanc. The restaurants, the spa, the rooms...everything is up to par for the cosmopolitan clientèle attracted to this chic but laidback ambiance. Only the site itself, alongside the railway track, isn't quite up to scratch.

      A chalet offering an exceptional view of Mont Blanc, the Auberge du Bois Prin has recently been awarded 5 stars and will delight those who like their privacy, tranquillity and fine food. You won't find ostentatious luxury or an endless number of facilities here, just comfort and peace and quiet.

      There's a refined atmosphere to this modern and cosy hotel. In terms of facilities, the Best Western Le Morgane is one of the most comprehensive hotels in Chamonix with its spa and gourmet restaurant. It's only fans of traditional alpine decor who won't find everything to their liking.

      The Grand Hotel des Alpes has been one of the historic places in Chamonix since 1840. We were completely won over by its central location, warm welcome, grand lounges, newly renovated guest rooms and amenities. Both a distinguished and friendly hotel.

      With 107 guest rooms, Les Aiglons Resort & Spa is one of the big establishments in Chamonix. Its spa and heated outdoor swimming pool are particularly enjoyable. A modern, comfortable hotel with very good facilities but sorely lacking in charm.

      Both standardised but faithful to the spirit of an alpine resort, the Prieuré is a large 91 guest room establishment. It may be functional but the decor and layout of the areas give it a touch of warmth. Unfortunately, it is located very close to the road.

      Transformed in 2011 from a 2 to a 3 star establishment, the Faucigny is a charming spot in the centre of Chamonix. The laidback ambiance and the Scandinavian-style decor make for a cosy hotel where a feeling of well-being resonates. The only thing we were disappointed with was the size of the rooms, which aren't always exactly functional.

      Just a stone's throw from the centre of Chamonix, the Auberge du Manoir is perfect for holidaymakers seeking tranquillity. This discreet spot, with very comfortable guest rooms and a peaceful atmosphere, is the perfect place to go if you are looking to be pampered. The only thing that disturbs the peace and quiet here is the proximity to a relatively busy road.
