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.

    Location 9.42 /10

    Situated on the main pedestrian street in Chamonix, next to the Arve Hotel, the Grand Hotel is in a very central location. The SNCF train station is 450m away, and there is a wide choice of bars, shops and restaurants in the immediate vicinity.

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    The 26 rooms at the Grand Hotel des Alpes are divided into 2 categories: Brévent and Mont Blanc. The difference between the two is of course the view from the window. In addition, all the Mont Blanc guest rooms have a bathtub and some also have a balcony. Some of the Brévent rooms only have a shower, and none of them have a balcony. Aside from these differences, the decor and amenities are identical...and utterly delightful. Like the lobby, the guest rooms, which were entirely renovated in 2012, have a very classic decor without being old-fashioned. The vaulted ceilings and the high-quality furniture on the thick carpet just ooze comfort. A television, DVD player, minibar and safe are all at guests' disposal, as well as free Wi-Fi.

    The Grand Hotel des Alpes also offers 3 suites, each one with different views (Mont Blanc or Brévent). Most importantly, the hotel has a special honeymoon suite on the 6th and last floor, nestled under the roof. This room with a mansard roof in the old tower is one of a kind and certainly doesn't lack charm!

    Overview 8.70 /10

    The Grand Hotel des Alpes only occupies the central part of the original 19th century building; the rest has been turned into private apartments. The establishment was closed for 10 years before being taken over and entirely renovated in 2004 by the Italian Breithorn Group. For all that, it's more magical than ever right from the moment you enter the lobby. The large lounges, with vaulted ceilings and parquet floors covered in rugs, and generously furnished and decorated in the golden era style, are the most welcoming.

    The hotel expands in height as opposed to width, covering 9 floors from the basement garage to the dining room and spa on the ground floor, then the lobby followed by 6 floors of guest rooms. The entire building is serviced by a lift.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    In 2005, faced with the wide choice of restaurants in its immediate surroundings, the Grand Hotel des Alpes decided to close its own restaurant. The hotel now only offers breakfast, which is served in the form of a generous and excellent buffet in a beautiful dining room decorated with imaginative pictures. What's more, it's served on fine chinaware!

    As an added extra, afternoon tea is also served here every day at 4:00pm, as well as an aperitif at the bar from 6:00pm. These convivial moments are very popular with holidaymakers.

    The Grand Hotel des Alpes provides full room service until 2:00am, thanks to its partnership with two neighbouring restaurants: l'Atmosphère and Casa Valerio. The menus consist of French and Italian à la carte cuisine.

    Spa 7.3 /10

    The well-being centre is open from 9:00am to 9:00pm and is free for guests staying at the hotel. A small sauna, hammam, Jacuzzi, indoor swimming pool and massage room all provide a pleasant setting for unwinding after a busy day.

    To know

    The hotel is very popular with Italians in summer.

    The establishment is closed outside of peak season, from mid-April to mid-June, then from mid-October to mid-December.

        Accueil grand standing. Cadre d'époque. Chambre luxurieuse. Je conseil la suite de l'ancienne tour au dernier étage avec une décoration digne d'une chambre de princesse, idéal pour une nuit de noces !!

      • Advantages

        Cadre exceptionnel. Le barman à toujours d'excellents cocktails et aussi fort sympathique. Service impeccable.

      • Disavantages

        Tarif digne de la réputation de Chamonix.

      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.

      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.

    • Alpina Alpina Alpina
      • Easyopinions nc
      • Value for money 6.98
      • Location 9.07

      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 9.82

      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.
