Chamonix is alive in the summer with mountain climbers,fresh air enthusiasts and fo course Japanese tours. The opportunity to get a fast lift to a cold 3800 metres is too good miss. It's an enjoyable town and what better way of maximising the enjoyment than to stay in the Grand hotel prince Albert 1st. A hotel of great charm with a large spectrum of different rooms including your own little hutte. We stayed near the swimming pool. These rooms are trendy French but very comfortable. It's the restaurants that are the star turn. The have a brasserie and a gourmet. We chose the gourmet. It's a lovely restaurant with large windows and a real buzz to it. The food is just wonderful, inventive and beautifully presented. The service is attentive but not stuffy and this all added up to a top evening.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- At the foot of mont Blanc, Pierre Carrier, Perrine and Grand Chef Pierre Maillet have taken over this hotel, devoted to exceptional cuisine and local delicacies, founded in 1903 by 'great grandfather Carrier'. The rooms in the main hotel or the chalets in the garden offer both modern and warm comfort. On the one hand, there is the superb menu at the Albert 1er with its elaborate recipes influenced by the Piedmont and Liguria and, on the other, the Maison Carrier restaurant with its specilaities to be enjoyed in the atmosphere of an old farmhouse or on the terrace while gazing out at the majestic beauty of mont Blanc. The indoor/outdoor swimming pool also boasts views of the eternal snows on the roof of Europe. An equally stunning and delicious address for winter or summer stay. ... more less
