I have spent a week at this hotel on 2 occasions and I still have mixed feelings; it is extremely convenient/well-located and usually can get good deals on rooms. I am comfortable enough there so I keep going back but it has its drawbacks; mainly the staff. It as a historic hotel, which explains the extremely small rooms, and dire... More

The staff is just plain rude. The moste unhelpful I have ever seen. You ask a question in english and they either reply in french or in a unhelpful way. If you do half-board they are even worse at the restaurant. Me and my friend got moved to another table while we were half-way through our main course! They didn't... More

There are a lot of dated, shabby hotels in France, and some of them are charming. This is NOT one of them. The hotel is downtown, in a good location, with parking available. Everything else about it is miserable. Very unfriendly staff, and owners. The plumbing is a century old, and the entire ground floor smells like backed up sewage.... More

The location is great, right in the middle of Chamonix. The rooms were very dated and old fashioned and rather shabby. I found this to be somewhat charming as I was reminded of some French hotels I stayed in when I was younger. My husband found the place tolerable only because we stayed only one night. The staff was not... More

My wife and I found croup Blanche on hotels.com and liked the price. We loved the location and it could not have been better but that's it. Our room was clean but super tiny. it had however an old-fashioned charm. Staff is clueless- refused to provide restaurant recommendations, basically said all restos are the same. Would go back if we... More

When I arrived at this hotel, it was the end of September. Although the hotel was very central, it did appear to be a little shabby. First thing I noticed was the very dirty windows on entrance, then at reception a smile would not have gone a miss to welcome us. I proceeded to my room, comfortable, but a little... More

Positive: Perfect location in the centre of Chamonix (during the night silent), everything can be done by foot, private parking (free of charge) just behind the hotel, beautiful views. Staff was very friendly, very clean, comfortable beds. Negative: Bathroom old (but clean), no WiFi in the room, only in the reception area for a high fee. No comment on the... More

This hotel is beautifully located : most rooms have a great view towards Brevent and Aiguille du Midi. Some rooms have a small terrace. The hotel needs refurbishment (decent tv, wifi, decoration..), there is a feeling to be back in the 60's - nothing dramatic but it would add great value. Otherwise all is clean and neat. There are some... More

La Croix Blanche is an old hotel and as such certain things such as a lack of a lift in certain parts of the building and scratched woodwork in places are to be expected. Bedrooms are not the same in size and shape (i was aware of this comment from a previously read review and although I didn't see the... More
