About Hameau Albert 1er

In the heart of Chamonix is the luxurious, family-run Hameau Albert 1er. Appealing features include an outdoor pool with dramatic Mont Blanc views.

Rooms are contemporary in design. They all have basic features such as a flat-screen TV, Wi-Fi, and a minibar. There are also two well equipped chalets with access to that cool pool.

Massage treatments, a steam room and hot comprise the popular Le Bachal Spa at Hameau Albert 1er. There are also rooms to accommodate up to 80 attendees for seminars and meetings.

Following a buffet breakfast, traditional local flavours come to the fore in the lunch and dinner menus of La Maison Carrier Restaurant. Then it’s off to The Quartz Bar to sample cocktails and the wine list.

It is less than 500 metres to the Richard Bozon Sports Centre, and to Train du Montenvers-Mer de Glace. This transports passengers over 1,000 metres to the famous Mer de Glace glacier.

Positive Reviews

Superior Service

The hotel is renowned for having a 2 star Michelin restaurant on-site and it is no wonder that the level of service not just in the restaurant but throughout the hotel has earned rave reviews from its previous guests.

Impeccable Amenities

A number of features of the hotel were given rave reviews by previous guests including the stunning views of Mont Blanc from the generous balconies, the beautiful pool and deck in summer time, and the added amenity of the jacuzzi's in some suites.

Amazing Spa Experience

The spa treatments provided by the on-site spa Le Bachel rated very highly across a number of reviews with many guests recommending to book in early to avoid disappointment, especially at the end of a long hard day of skiing.

Negative Reviews

Slow Wi-Fi

A handful of people had varied experiences with the speed of the Wi-Fi with some commenting that it is the little things that make for a relaxed and pleasant stay and for some the speed of the Wi-Fi was a source of frustration.

Some Rooms Need a Modern Touch

Some previous guests felt that there was a discrepancy in the styling between some of the rooms available at the hotel, commenting that they thought that some rooms were in need of a bit of an overhaul to maintain a consistent look and feel across the hotel as well as to maintain its five star status.

Breakfast Not Included

A number of guests commented that they thought that it was a little rich to charge an additional fee for breakfast, given the room rate being paid which is at the luxury end of the scale.
