Similar problems to others for our 4 night stay (our 5th year in a row staying at the Alpina for a long weekend skiing) Arrived and key cards wouldn't work (queue of others getting them re done). Got to room and it literally stank of bad drains. Asked to be moved; lots of arguing from staff who said hotel full...

We visited on a weekend ski trip. Friday and Saturday night - one of the only hotels that was willing to split two Saturday-Saturday ski weeks, Whilst it was a bit of hassle getting confirmation of the refurbished rooms, it was well worth the 30EUR extra a night. Very tastefully decorated, great bathroom, comfy beds, TV etc - rooms were...

What is the matter with this place? It's badly designed. None of the public rooms connect with each other. The staff are weird and disinterested. There is no atmosphere. Even the piano in the bar has been muffled and can't be played readily. The rooms weren't ready when we arrived. We had to get changed for skiing in the boot...

After reading the many negative reviews on this hotel, I was expecting lots of problems with our stay - however we were pleasantly surprised as it was much better than we expected! We had a refurbished room on the second floor and had no problems with the heating/key cards/cleanliness. Perhaps these have been resolved with the refurb? The room was...

Good: 1. The location is great, right in the middle of Chamonix and with multiple ski bus stops out front. 2. All the rooms seem to have good views, although the higher floors have the best. Mixed: 3. Service was uneven. The first front desk guy told us that our room wasn't ready yet (at 5:30 pm, when check-in is...

A very standard European hotel. We took a group of about 50 people for an office ski trip, and there was a very large disconnect between the "group reservation" side of the hotel and the rest of the staff. Upon arrival the front desk had no idea who we were or that the reservations even existed. It all worked out,...

All I can say is, do believe the reviews. The negatives outweighed the positives. On the plus side, good location, good boot room, amazing view from the top floor restaurant & decent size room. Negatives? So many people had trouble with their key cards. I had to get mine changed 3 times. The gentleman at reception gave me no info...

All I can say is don't believe the bad reviews. Hotel is brilliantly situated, staff were friendly and helpful. Warm room, hot water, good wifi, clean...everything you need for a ski holiday base. We booked last minute as our idyllic honeymoon in the Maldives had to be cancelled due to injury. So rather than diving in the Maldives, we thought...

We had a triple room. Basic but good size and clean. Bathroom fine. Great shower. No fridge or kettle. Small hairdryer. Dinner with the half board option was excellent. Fab service. Great location. Opposite bus stop. Close to lifts, supermarket and bars. Would recommend for sharers.
