Alpina Hotel has good location in the heart of Chamonix. Also breakfast is pretty good and you can have it in the top floor of the hotel, enjoying nice view to the alps. Hotel does need some renovation and when it is done, we will come back. But next year we decided to choose an other centrally located hotel.

I stayed here in February 2014 and went skiing nearby in the alps. My room had a breathtaking view but our room was not bad. However the mini drinks were very over-priced ; half a bottle of water i think was around 5 euros (£3.25) so we didn't us that. But i thought the hotel was fit for purpose for... More

We spent an unscheduled night in Livigno as our car had broken down and had been towed to a garage here. We enjoyed our dinner and the room was comfortable. The outstanding service we received from Graziano on the front desk helped remove the stress, he telephoned the garage for us and allowed us to email from his computer.thank you... More

Desperate for a room because my prior hotel was sold out, I grabbed what I could and sadly, this was it. Overpriced for the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Actually, I wouldn't stay here for free. They asked if I wanted a room with a view of Mt. Blanc (costs extra) so I went for it. The ONLY... More

Despite being a bit worn down the hotel offers good service and the restaurant at the top floor holds superb quality! We stayed at the hotel for the marathon Mont Blanc. The marathon village was located just 15 meters from the entrance of the hotel, perfect! The staff was ever helpful and friendly in every manner. We will return next... More

Booked a night in this hotel for our last night in Chamonix - we had been on a walking tour and staying at another hotel and needed an extra night before flying home but couldn't get a room there so chose this one. This hotel was 50% more expensive than the previous one and we were expecting a very comfortable... More

It hasn't been updated since. Most frustratingly, the windows open but there is nothing to keep them open. The rooms are average size with old, ratty furniture. The one thing this place has going for it is the location and its size. There are many rooms.

Stayed one night before a 2 week stay in a privately owned apartment. Reception like most hotels in France fills you confidence that it's a nice comfortable hotel. It was modern, contemporary and very 21st century. However we got out of the lift to find a 1970s uncleared corridor and the room, once we found it, transported us straight back... More
