Alpina Eclectic Hotel
Ranked #64 of 73 Hotels in Chamonix
Reviewed 27 July 2012

Stayed here for a long weekend ski trip. The room is of decent size and the room is 'ok', nothing to shout about, but it is clean and beds are comfortable. The view is great though as you can get a glimpse of Mont Blanc from the room balcony and also the big square.

Location wise, it's great as the bus stops to all ski locations is just outside the hotel. We didn't eat or drink there so can't comment. The people at the reception is also not very friendly IMHO.

Another thing that bugs me is that I paid online €109 for the room but outside it clearly advertises for €89! So, if you are willing to take the risk, just turn up or maybe call the hotel direct. I have no idea whatsoever why the rate is different, but I am a firm believer in free market so I accepted their offer online and that's it.

Will I come back here? Not for a long ski trip, but I might consider for short trips as it's quite central.

I dont have a stay experience there but do have a booking experience that has led me to believe that the hotel is very dishonest and is just looking at getting money from customers rather than servicing them.

I booked in Alpina through hotels.com in which the information provided on cancellation and time of payment was completely different from what actually happened. I was charged the full amount even though the hotel explicitly mentions that they will not charge till booking happens.

Now I know it is not a hotel review, but to think about it, if they can be so easy with your credit card information, charge as much and whenever they want, how can I trust them to be even changing the bed sheets after a guest stays there. For all you know the food served there has the same subtle problem - may be adulterated to save some money.

Hence, I would not recommend the hotel at all.

Booked this hotel for a climbing trip, triple room with a view of Mont Blanc. Rooms could be classed as a tad dated but all in perfect order. Excellent breakfast, good underground parking accessed by a lift and extremely helpful and pleasant staff. Didn't try the spa but we were offered passes and robes. Very well located just off the main streets of Chamonix. Will go back for the ski season.

Room Tip: A mont Blanc view of course

Excellent balcony view of Mont Blanc 2 mins walk to the village centre. Rooms massive if a little dated but I just fell in love with the place. Drinks in the bar were quite expensive but no more than anywhere else.
Fantastic place and great value hotel!

This hotel lived up to, and beyond, the expectations that we had! It is super sentral, most of the staff is helpful and nice and there is a very nice breakfast included! We arrived with a car, and there was no problem with the parking in the garage. All in all a very pleasant hotel experience!

We stayed in this hotel in June 2011. Beautiful season for chamonix. We had nice warm room. The best part about this facility is that almost every room has mountain view. The surrounding is scenic for a stroll in market along the canal. I would surely love to visit this town once again and would like to stay in same hotel and explore the town little more.
thanks
