Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

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. 

The hotel rooms are modern with urban and mountain styles perfectly combined, giving a warm feel. This design is throughout the hotel, along with the mountain views.

Vista bar and restaurant is on the seventh floor and had 180° views across the Mont Blanc mountain range! There is also the Lounge Bar which also has amazing views from the seventh floor and an unconstructed chandelier above the bar, the perfect place to sip a cocktail and socialise after the slopes.

For a more relaxed vibe the hotel has a spa area for a full pampering after exploring the slopes, including a sauna, steam room, two whirlpools, relaxation room and fitness area.

Chamonix

With 90% of the terrain above 2000m, Chamonix has for many years attracted skiers looking for good snow and who also want to ski the famous Vallée Blanche - or tackle the rest of the extensive off-piste skiing. There is an efficient ski bus which links the five main ski areas with our accommodation in Chamonix and the nearby village of Les Houches. Set against truly spectacular scenery at the foot of the majestic Mont Blanc, the resort's setting is both unique and breathtaking. Chamonix offers an excellent range of sporting and leisure facilities with an unrivaled nightlife whilst Les Houches is quieter but full of Alpine charm. 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. Beginners start off in Chamonix or the nearby pretty village of Les Houches.
