Hotel Alpina is in the centre of Chamonix and has amazing views of the Mont Blanc and Brevent mountain ranges. The bus stop is just across the road from the hotel, making it really easy to get to the cable cars, and the Savoy ski lift is just a few minutes' walk. There is a Vista bar and restaurant and also a Lounge Bar which all have amazing views. The lounge contains an unconstructed chandelier above the bar and truly creates the perfect atmosphere to sip a cocktail and socialise after the slopes.

Spectacular views

Providing constant reminders that you're surrounded by beautiful mountain terrain with its many viewpoints, Hotel Alpina uses warm and contemporary interiors to highlight the snowy outdoors. The Vista Restaurant, located on the 7th floor, gives you 180-degree views overlooking the Monc Blanc chain and the bedrooms are designed with the natural landscape in mind, with floor to ceiling windows - so you can really appreciate these mountains throughout your stay. 

Excellent facilities

Hotel Alpina will become your home away from home with access to all the facilities you need, right on your doorstep. The hotel benefits from its own ski hire shop, as well as two bars, a spa with a jacuzzi, sauna, hammam and a fitness room. It even has its own grocery store! We do encourage you to explore the rest of Chamonix but if you're looking for an easy holiday with everything you might need within reach, then this is the perfect option for you. 

Family favourite 

Families are welcomed at Hotel Alpina. Baby baths as well as baby beds are available upon request and the restaurant offers early dining for you and your children. And we're sure the bedrooms will be a hit with the kids as they all lace in elements of storytelling through their design, paying tribute to the two mythical mountainous creatures - the Yeti and the Dahu.

Skiing and snowboarding in Chamonix

With 90% of the terrain above 2000m, Chamonix has for many years attracted skiers looking for good snow. The choice of skiing is amazing, from cruisy blues and fun reds at Le Brevent, Flegere and Le Tour to more challenging runs at Les Grands Montets. There's even the renowned Valle Blanche, a 23km descent, an unmarked, unmaintained and unpatrolled off-piste run down into Chamonix.

There's an efficient ski bus service which links the five main ski areas with our accommodation in Chamonix and the nearby village of Les Houches, so you can experience a new area almost every day.
