Here at flexiski we’ve always been a fan of the Hotel Alpina for its unbeatable flexibility but less so for the 70’s décor, however the hotel is in the midst of a marvellous new renovation project. Flexible, stylish and affordable we're pleased to say we’re loving the new-look.

With so much to do, only the reception and lounge area with the new Epicerie, the Vista panoramic bar restaurant, ‘rent and ride’ ski shop and 39 rooms will all be complete for the 2016/2017 ski season. The rest of the rooms along with a spa area will be competed over the summer 2017 – fingers crossed for free massages all round.

Renovation aside the hotel offers a fantastic location at the top of the pedestrianised street with fabulous views of the surrounding Mont Blanc and Brevent mountain ranges. One of the primary Chamonix bus stops is right outside allowing easy access to every slope of this fantastic ski area.

We’ve already mentioned the Vista bar and restaurant but it’s a real high point with fabulous views over Chamonix and Mont Blanc, cocktails and sumptuous food compliment the scenery. Well worth a visit.

Situated close to the top of the pedestrianised street that runs through the centre of Chamonix, the Hotel Alpina is seconds from all the resort amenities. Its location means you get spectacular views of surrounding Mont Blanc and Brevent mountains. The main ski bus stop is just outside the hotel so you also have easy access to the main lifts.
