Stayed here for one night in a single room while waiting for friends to arrive the next morning for a ski trip. My room was clean and comfortable, although the decor is quite dated and there was an odd layout. However, unlike other reviewers experienced everything was clean, and the shower was warm and good. TV got French channels ok,... More

We were hoping for a centrally located basic hotel for our 3 day ski trip. On the whole La Croix-Blanche ticked all the boxes. It was right in the centre of town and the rooms were basic but clean. The reason that I would not recommend the hotel would be for the shower. On our first day the temperature was... More

Most of the staff were OK, just not too helpful. Not what you want when you are on holiday. The whole hotel is a bit tired and worn down by years of guests visiting. However, it was comfortable and warm (we were there in the winter) if a bit stuffy as there were no vents and the bathroom one didn't... More

We arrived at the Croix-Blanche on a Saturday evening and, given it's perfectly central location in Chamonix and adequate lobby area, were pleasantly surprised. The issues with the Croix-Blanche began when we were assigned to room 15 (on the second floor, adjacent to the landing, to be accessed via stairs rather than by a lift). First impressions as one ascends... More

Good location in city center in a pedestrian area. Much noise from party people though. Walking distance to Brevent. But I would not consider this a three stars hotel. No way. Paper-thin walls, could hear the neighbors talk. They charged 18 euros a day for parking.

The hotel enjoys a very and nice central location. Because of that thou you need to pay extra for the parking if you have a car. The room and the overall structure are a bit old and they would probably need to be renewed.

I had read the reviews after booking 4 rooms and was slightly worried that my party would feel I had let them down. I had no need to worry as the hotel was good value for money. The rooms were in need of a fresh layer of paint and new furniture but they were clean with comfortable beds and nice... More

Upper end of the pedestrian walkway, less than 10 mins from the train station and tourist info office. Outdoor apres-ski bar (L'M) just outside. Comfortable although we had elephants upstairs that returned to roost after 02:00 nightly. Great location for resturants and wandering the ped walkway for shopping and food/brasseries. Close to bus stops to get to ski areas (check... More

I was travelling alone and stayed for only one night so I guess that I differed from most travellers who would be here for a week and are there for the skiing. First of all - the welcome from the lovely receptionist was excellent. She gave me detailed instructions on how to access the parking area for which the hotel... More

Great location as its slap bang in the heart of Chamonix, it is basic and you get what you pay for but it is pretty perfect for a place like Chamonix where you are generally out being active, it's not the place you want to sit indoors that's for sure! Rooms are clean and tidy and the continental breakfast is... More
