Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We loved our 4 night stay at the Alpina Eclectic Hotel & Spa. Upon check in, we were upgraded to a balcony room on the 6th floor. Our room was good sized with modern decor and plenty of storage. Comfy bed with soft pillows, slept like a log. There is an area for clothes and cases tucked away behind the main bedroom to keep the room tidy. Separate toilet and bathroom was a bit odd as you have to go into another room to wash your hands but it was fine and we got used to it! Bathroom comes equipped with hairdryer, hand wash, shampoo and shower gel, very nice scent. Reception are happy to provide more toiletries if needed. We used the nespresso coffee machine each morning and the housekeeping staff kept the pods replenished throughout our stay. We really enjoyed the complementary one hour spa session per day. Robes and slippers are provided in the room. The heated ski room was fantastic too. There is a cafe onsite to grab some lunch/drinks and a bon bon sweetie bar in reception to help yourself to a treat on the way in/out of the hotel. The hotel is in a great location with ski bus stops just outside and lots of shops, bars and restaurants nearby. Ski hire shop onsite as well. Staff are friendly and willing to help with any questions or recommendations. We would not hesitate to stay in the Alpina next time we are in Chamonix.

The hotel is very well located near to ski lifts and all of the shops, bars and restaurants that Chamonix has to offer. However, the room was very small for the price per night (and we did not stay in school holidays!). It has good facilities like a boot/ski room with your own locker per room, again a bit small for 2 snowboards but it was still convenient. Breakfast was simple but they did have someone making fresh crepes and omelettes which was a nice touch. The restaurant where the breakfast was served had lovely mountain views but the bar lacked atmosphere and was on the ground floor. It was more just like an extension of the hotel lobby so not somewhere you wanted to hang out after a long day on the slopes. The free spa access with a jacuzzi, steam and sauna for 1 hour a day was well managed and it meant it never felt too crowded in there. All in all a good stay but the room size was not good value for the price and difficult with all the things you need for skiing.

I should start by saying it is hard to get a 5 from me for a hotel. My group of 4 was very happy with the Alpina. For starters, it's right next to two bus stops, one of which is only 2 stops from Brevent. There is also a ski shop in the hotel, and ski lockers downstairs. As this was primarily a ski trip, this set up was prime. The rooms were great and the view of Mont Blanc from the terrace was amazing each morning. The morning breakfast situation was pretty fantastic as well. So many options, including fresh pancakes, omelets, and crepes. The bar downstairs had fantastic service and had a bunch of boardgames to play with our friends. Some of of best memories from this trip were down in this area playing games and drinking espresso martinis. I only have a few negatives: 1. The elevators always seem to take forever. There were multiple times I was waiting for one of the 3 elevators for over 5 minutes. 2. The spa requires reservations, which I completely understand to make sure it's not over crowded. But we had to plan our ski day and apres schedule around when we can go sit in the hot tub. 3. This was made a bit worse when we discovered the hot tubs are not hot. At all. Typically we enjoy hot tubs around 35-43ºc. These two hot tubs were maybe 25ºc. Once the jets turned on, it was almost chilly. These are very minor complaints, but these are why I didn't give a 5.

Nice hotel in good location but terrible service received by Benjamin the hotel manager. He needs to go back to hospitality school to understand what customer service means. A hotel is only as good as its staff and Benjamin definitely is not leading by example. 1 star service

We had such a bad experience at this hotel. We booked a dinner table to celebrate a friends birthday and upon turning up we were told that unfortunately they could not honor our reservation as they had a group of 150 people. The restaurant manager Benjamin said he tried to contact us however when he showed me the number he was dialling he put in wrong number. We then spoke with the hotel manager who was also Benjamin who unfortunately has no idea of customer service and turned to us and said 'what do you want me to do I cannot help you as restaurant is full' If this is the response a hotel manager is giving you can only guess what service the staff are offering. The least he could have done was offer us to book on an alternative day or help recommend somewhere else. Really poor experience and I highly recommend you stay away from this place.

Responded 7 Feb 2024
Dear Guest, We sincerely apologize for the disappointment you experienced during your recent visit to our hotel. We understand how significant celebrating a birthday is, and we deeply regret not meeting your expectations. We want to extend our most sincere apologies regarding the confusion surrounding your table reservation. The complex situation with the group of 150 people presented unforeseen challenges, and we acknowledge that our communication should have been more transparent and effective. Regarding our initial response, we regret that it was not perceived as a suitable solution to the situation. We sought to explain that, unfortunately, we couldn't physically accommodate your group, but we should have emphasized alternative options more, such as assisting you in booking at another restaurant. We understand that these alternatives were declined multiple times on your part, and we apologize for any misunderstanding. We take this lesson to heart and will implement corrective actions for a more proactive management of such situations in the future. Your feedback, posted on various platforms with different accounts, is a valuable opportunity for us to improve as an establishment. We appreciate the constructive feedback and are committed to learning from this experience. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to rectify our mistakes, and we hope you can consider giving us another chance to provide you with a positive experience. Sincerely, Benjamin LEMOINE Directeur / General Manager Alpina Eclectic Hotel

The hotel is very good indeed. Clean and comfortable bedrooms but beware the standard rooms are small and we paid to upgrade. Despite being very busy, the hotel were very accomadating when we asked to move. The staff are all excellent, front desk, bars and restaurant. They are all very friendly and happy to help. This is a big plus for the hotel. Our only issue is that we found the restaurant (great views!) to be affected by the cooking smells both at breakfast and the 2 dinners we had. The problem is that there is a hotplate which does not seem to have extraction and it does affect the atmosphere.

I do not recommend this hotel First of all we received a wrong room number on reception, second of all the heating in bathroom isn’t working so we have to stay until it’s fixed. The room is cold because heating is central so you can’t change anything We choose this hotel because of the spa, as soon as we arrived we went to book but it was not available anymore. It’s such a shame you don’t say clearly that Spa has to be booked in advance, not even in the same day

This is a very trendy hotel that caters to the young ski crowd. They have lots of graphics on walls and carpets and our room was very dark. Black walls in the bathroom. Narrow hall separating bath/shower rooms from bedroom. It did have a nice small balcony with views. It is right near the center and close to the bus which is handy. Breakfast room has views and food was ok.
