“Well situated hotel, friendly service”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We were looking for a hotel with swimming pool. Grand Hotel des Alpes was our choice because of location in the very heart of Chamonix, good reviews from most visitors and very atractive price. When we arrived, there were no doubts, location was perfekt. The staff was very friendly. Room was moderate, but well kept. We did not try even breakfast at the hotel (I believe the meals are also very good), because we are not "hungry eaters" and price for breakfast would be surely overpriced. What we enjoyed most was the swimming pool, which is rather small, but absolutely sufficient, taking into consideration that we were using it alone.

Room Tip: Only problem was noisy walking street below our window. Each night starting from 23:30 up to 1:30 th...

Great location, very very good breakfast, nice rooms. Very clean and everyone so friendly and helpful and extremely NICE.
Would come back anytime.
We arrived late after midnight. The hotel was waiting for our arrival. Helped us with parking, luggage and everything else. Hotel close to restaurants and gondolas. Have no idea why someone would stay anywhere else in Chamonix unless of course you are on a hostel budget and that would be quite understandable.

Grand hotel in style and service. Boutique hotel in size, style and service. The best of both worlds. Was once a very large hotel, it is now a boutique hotel with friendly individual service from the front desk to the dining room, to the housekeeping. Great central location in Chamonix with a beautiful view of the Aiguille du Midi. Definitely a place to return to.

Chose this hotel because of tripadvisor reviews

All our expectations were exceeded. Breakfast was superb and aside from the usual upon request items were crepes. And they even provide sandwich bags so you can enjoy the quality cold cuts on your hike or ski trip.

And yes they also provide reasonably price wash and fold laundry service. Ie no ironing needed for hiking clothes and underwear. Great deal and saves time.

Only caution is to make sure you use the address to their parking garage in the rear as the hotel fronts on a pedestrian only street.

Quality in every way

This hotel is really amazing, very antique hotel. My night with was really a good experience to be remembered. I booked a honeymoon package the room was in the roof the wood surround the room from right to left from above to floor.

Pros:
- friendly staff.
- location.
- outdoor breakfast is a must to try.
- parking

Cons:
- no A/C, sure no need except sometimes in the summer.

We showed up a day late for our reservation, they didn't charge us, and then they accommodated our family of six with two adjacent rooms, one big for the kids and one for the parents! Was a little challenging finding the parking garage, but other than that it was a perfect stay! Great location for exploring town, hiking, etc.

Hotel's strengths - superb location, very nice rooms and great service
What could be better? Restaurant service is only available for breakfast.
The hotel also upgraded us on arrival .... which is always a nice thing :)

I would certainly recommend the hotel to a friend
