I stayed at the hotel with a friend in a twin room. Our room was very spacious and comfortable, though from the floor map, it seemed to be abnormally large in comparison to the other rooms next to ours. The hotel's situation is amazing - it's situated on the main shopping street in Chamonix, and a minute away from the... More

The hotel is located in a good place with everything a stones throw away. Loads of places to eat and drink in Chamonix and they have a brilliant market round the corner, this hotel doesn't allow for self-catering and you would want to after seeing what is available on the market! We were disturbed 4 times every morning, by cleaning,... More

Location is great...but so are the locations of dozens of other hotels in the area. I spent 90 euros and will gladly pay more money for another hotel so I don't stay here again. Also, the older lady at night, very rude. The younger girl during the day, very nice.

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
