Hameau Albert 1er - Luxury hotel in Chamonix
Plan of the Hameau Albert 1er
Hotel rooms that tell a story
The Albert 1er, La Ferme and the chalets Soli and Grepon all offer elegant, peaceful havens under the watchful eye of Mont Blanc.The Hameau Albert 1er is very much inspired by the past and the present. Our family have always turned to the hotel's history to build its future and the building's architecture recounts the family saga over the years. At the beginning of the 20th century the Pension du Chemin de Fer was a large, simple building. In the twenties, an Art Deco veranda was added. Pierre and Martine Carrier took over the establishment in the seventies and chose to bedeck the hotel with wood and chalet-style balconies.
In 1993, we set out to re-establish the ‘Belle Epoque » and urbain style of the place, removing the chalet features. Inside, the rooms gained in comfort and space, going from 50 to 25 rooms. The dining areas were also completely renovated. 3 farms with 12 rooms, a restaurant ‘La Maison Carrier’, a pool and spa were completed in 1997 in a local Alpine architectural style.
In the autumn of 2008, we renovated the ground floor of the Albert 1er building, creating the QuartzBar and reinventing the atmosphere in the Albert 1er restaurant, lounge areas and seminar room.
The construction of the Chalet Grepon in 2010 added to the collection of old-style Relais & Châteaux chalets.
The apartment ‘Chez Martine’, renovated in spring 2013, completes the collection, proposing an amazing space for families to unwind in a décor of white-washed wood.
The establishment has taken the form of a true hamlet (hence the name ‘Hameau’) with a rustic garden, stream and fruit trees. With 5 stars, this is a very special place in the centre of Chamonix.
Now you just need to choose your room. Do you prefer the contemporary nature of the main Albert 1er building or the traditional alpine woodwork of the historical farmhouse? The immaculately white décor of the Chalet Grépon or the intimacy of the wooden Chalet Soli? Or maybe you want to share the adventure with the family in the apartment ‘Chez Martine’? All our rooms have a story to tell…
