The pool

The hotel also has a beautiful indoor/outdoor heated swimming pool that is open all year around. The pool has fantastic views of Mont Blanc which can equally be enjoyed from the comfort of a sun-lounger on the surrounding patio in the summer months.

The bar also has a large selection of cocktails, champagnes and local liqueurs. Along with fantastic live music (both in the winter and summer seasons) the QuartzBar offers the perfect atmosphere to unwind after a day in the mountains.

Visitor comments

  • "Absolutely perfect and worth every penny!! The staff were amazingly friendly and helpful. Everyday our room was made up, when we returned from our day snowboarding our room would have a fire lit and when we would return from dinner our beds would be turned down. I cannot rave enough about this, it's like they anticipated our every move." - Trip Advisor
  • "We have just returned from our second visit to this hotel. Once again it was a most pleasant experience. I could not find fault with the hotel or the staff and its very seldom that I have found this. We had a wonderful large room with fabulous views and the indoor/outdoor pool is simply amazing with snow falling in the evening! The complimentary chauffeur service to the various slopes in Chamonix was really efficient and saved us lots of valuable time on a weekend break." - Trip Advisor
  • "My wife and I recently stayed at the Hameau Albert in Chamonix, France and had an outstanding experience. The facility and grounds are sensational and located in a perfect location within walking distance to everything in Chamonix. The staff at Hameau Albert obviously pride themselves on creating a top notch experience and if you're fortunate enough to meet Sebastian you are in a for a real treat. Sebastian did everything from greet us at the front door, to unloading our car, showing us to our rooms, pouring us welcome drinks, explaining the town and what to do, parking our car, bringing our bags to the room, periodically checking in on us, bringing our bags down from room, loading our car, giving us thank you for staying gifts and bottled waters for the drive out of Chamonix. And he did all of that with a smile on his face and the most polite (at your service) demeanour you've ever seen. If you're looking for a truly special experience check out Le Hameau Albert. You wont be disappointed." - Trip Advisor
