Fantastic location just off the main square with wonderful views up the Aiguille de Midi. Large room that slept 4 in two spearate areas with separate bathroom and WC. Much more space than I expected which is great when sharing with friends. Didn't use the dining room but looked very pleasant. Handy carpark at back of hotel had a space... More

Large room overlooking the street which gave Aiguille du Midi and glacier views. Very central location. Room tired, needs a paint but bathroom clean and very good shower. Main manager not that friendly at times but came good. Also very helpful before stay in allowing us to leave gear for free for 2 weeks while we walked the Tour Mont... More

Right in the centre of Chamonix, this hotel is not smart or luxurious, and probably needs a makeover. However it is very good value in this expensive town and perfectly adequate for a couple of nights. I'd happily stay here again.

The location is central, close to transport and shops. But it is a tired old hotel. The staff do their best, but the place needs a refit. The carpet was not clean and the bathroom was 1970s, in a bad way. Dark red bread spreads, small towels, dated everything. Should be 2 star rather than 3.

Great two days spent in this quaint town. Very close to everything. Mont Blanche was the best thing to go and see. Over 4000 meters high. When we arrived at the top WOO-OW what a view. Worth the price. This hotel was looking at the mountain. We were on the top floor. This place is dated, but most old hotels... More

Although this is a fabulous location, this hotel was for us just somewhere to stay, there were no huge issues, however WiFi was inaccessible in our room, and we were forced to use the downstairs business centre. This was fine for what we wanted. The beds were comfortable and everyone had a pleasant night sleep. Not wanting to shovel out... More

3.5 stars would be perfect. This place is all about LOCATION. The best location. Everything else is just OK. Its super dated, which I dont mind at all. The bathroom was remodeled and the bed was soft. The internet sucks. Worst internet ever. Only works in the lobby and you have to go thru this ridiculous process to get it... More

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
