I corresponded with Natalia & Guia prior to arrival and both were most charming. Staff was warm and helpful and location was perfectly in the heart of Chamonix. The front of the hotel is right on the pedestrian zone and the rear overlooks the mountains and a lovely little river.

Hotel was clean, staff was friendly and location was perfect. After several days of walking, I could not find one better! We drove around the block a few times before spotting the parking lot in rear of hotel. We pulled up to a gate and rang the buzzer, within a moment Natalia was outside to meet us!

Great hotel, great people and great little town!

We've been visiting 3 rooms to prepare a future trip. Sheila, the receptionist, took us for a visit. We found out that the place is really comfortable, nicely decorated, centrally located. The welcome and the staff level already left us a highly positive impression. No doubt that we'll head for that hotel when returning to Chamonix!

We stayed here for two nights in July and loved it. It is in a great location, very central to shops and restaurants and has an underground car park. The rooms were very nice, really comfortable and very clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. We wished that we had planned to stay here for a bit longer.

My Fiance and I spent the 4th of July weekend in Chamonix and chose
the Grand Hotel des Alpes after researching most of the hotels in the
area. We had a wonderful experience during our 3 night stay. The
hotel staff was beyond accommodating, helping us with restaurant
reservations and recommendations of things to do. One person even
prepared a bag of ice for me after suffering a minor hiking injury.
The room was very clean with a spacious bathroom and ample amount of
closet space. The bed was very comfortable with a great comforter,
and the view from our room was spectacular. We had breakfast only one
morning at the hotel, and I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of
pastries, fresh and dried fruit, and cereal; as well as the option to
order eggs any way you like. However, the highlight was the outside
seating on an enclosed terrace by the river. I am only giving the
hotel 4 stars because of the lack of air conditioning or a ceiling
fan, as well as no option for guests to use the internet if they did
not bring their own laptop. The location is perfect for exploring the
town and we would definitely stay there again.

from what I could see, most of the hotels in Chamonix are average.... adequate, but lacking in charm. This hotel stood WAY out..... immaculate, beautifully decorated, 4 star ammenities, wonderful staff, very helpful in every way. The breakfast was pricey but worth it. I loved this hotel and would go back again!

We stayed at Grand Hotel Des Alpes after our long 18 hour travel from California. I booked this hotel on purpose because I had it feeling it would be a wonderful welcome to a tired soul and it sure was. Chamonix is only about an hour from Geneva Airport and makes a great first stop for a European adventure. We arrived at the hotel, with a car you need to drive in the back of the hotel and call the intercom to the front desk, and were greeted at our car by a lovely Russian girl who helped us out of car and with our bags. The hotel itself feels very chic and expensive with that warm Savoie Ski Chalet touch. Our room, though not huge, was very comfy and cozy. Even though it was June, we still needed the heat in the evening. Our beds were those dreamy down feather beds that are famous in the part of the world. To avoid Jet Lag, we stayed up until about 930 pm but then happily passed out in these comfortable beds.
The spa and pool area is divine! I took a nice long dip in the spa before going to sleep. All in all, a wonderful experience and very "cushy". We stayed at 9 more hotels on our trip and we were always comparing them to this one. We wished we would have stayed longer.
