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

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
