The drive itself from Bex, Switzerland to Chamonix was wonderful - when we got into town, stopped near top of hill (next to the chair lifts) above the city and walked around the hiking trails with wonderful views of Chamonix. Mont Blanc is stunning. We plan to come to spend more time here.

The place is beautiful but if you are looking at hotel not in the city then there are many good locations along the train route from Chamonix to Vallorcine. You can check all train stations and accordingly locate hotels also. The train and bus is free for people staying in hotels with the pass given by hotel for the duration... More

Under -10 degree Celsius I had the most cold unforgettable experience in my life! It was last December in Chamonix - Mont Blanc! If you're a Winter lover don't miss it, an amazing romantic village between the French Alps, if you ski it's a plus for your trip, if you don't just admire the nature, go up to the "Aiguille...

We booked our airport transfer to Chamonix over the internet. They acknowledged that there had been a mistake and we were overcharged 52.18 euros but would not refund the money. I emailed and phoned them but "customer service" said it was an "IT" issue. We are 2 travellers from Canada. We booked a return trip over the internet and got... More

This ski town is very pretty and has beautiful traditional buildings and architectural features as well as a river running through it. However if you are looking for a ski in/out resort, this is not for you.One has to bus/taxi to all the different ski areas. Unless you book accommodation next to the bus stops, in town, be prepared to... More

It's a great place to either say or see as a day trip. People watching is second to none - all the tribes of the Alps are on the streets. Plenty of good cafes and decent restaurants. Very buzzy with everything open on a Sunday afternoon in March. Fabulous views of the mountains around the town too.

We have to walk with our boots , carrying the skis and pols, The buses are incredibly crowded, I wish... More

My wife and I, both American, had high expectations of Chamonix when we booked our trip considering Chamonix was really the only ski area in France we heard about before starting our research, my parents even went there in the 70s. I'm sure Europeans know much more about the different resorts however I suggest if you're traveling abroad to do... More

A cute village and most excellent skiing, great night life as well. It is a very well connected valley with lost of ski areas on your ski pass if you opt for the Chammonix Mont blanc pass, we went to Courmayer in Italy which was excellent!
