We booked this hotel in advance of our Tour du Mont Blanc and found it a happy launching pad. The rooms are absolutely fine, decorated in what might be called chalet style. Ours was slightly worn and could probably do with an update, but we got a good price, and there is everything you need. It was clean and cosy,... More

Stayed here on a coach tour, (Robinsons) from Monday 11 August 2014 to Saturday 16 August. Beautiful location, minutes away from the town, fabulous views of Mont Blanc. Rooms basic but clean. Good continental breakfast with lots of choice. Evening meal was horrendous. Two coach parties and only one man serving - he was also the barman so kept stopping... More

In our way to Italy, we stayed in Chamonix one night. The staff of this hotel was very friendly. The room was really clean and comfortable. Because of the outside temperature, it did not have an air conditioning. They also have a good and secure parking and a sauna. It was also walking distance from the maim places in Chamonix.... More

Having had to drastically rearrange our climbing itinerary in Switzerland due to the worst July weather since 1965, this hotel was a welcome relief after a mad dash up Mont Blanc. We turned up without a booking and the staff were incredibly helpful in sorting a room out for us. They couldn't have been more accomodating and ignored the dishevelled... More

I loved the location of this hotel. It looks right onto the mountains and each room has a balcony. The view is spectacular, the staff is very friendly and many speak some English, which as nice. The only thing I did not like about this hotel were the rooms. Although roomy for a hotel in France, they definitely need updating.... More

Made some inquiries at the hotel. The staff at reception (male in 30s) on Sunday June 8th 2014 (around 2pm) was absolutely terrible. Unprofessional approach, mocking me if front of another employee. I will not even bother to recommend this hotel to people I know who plan to stay in Chamonix.

I've stayed here twice on 'lad's holidays'. Once with a twin room and most recently they fitted three of us in a room. The rooms aren't enormous and getting a little outdated but perfectly clean and okay. We enjoy a few beers at their pool table before we go out even though there is no atmosphere around their bar. The... More

The hotel offers good location - walking distance to city center with restaurants, pubs & clubs (Amnesia only 5 minutes walk); short drive to Le Brevant; great window view of Mont Blanc. Breakfast food is also good - not a minor "continental" breakfast, but scrambled or boiled eggs, crepes etc. There is also a shower posibility, if you want to... More

Booked hotel as great location for ski bus and town. Friendly staff, room was larger than expected and jacuzzi and sauna and steam room perfect to relax in after hours on the slopes. Would return. Only had breakfast which was ample

We stayed here for one week in late February. The location is great, close to the bus stop and the busy downtown pedestrian street. The employees are very friendly and helpful. The room #702 had a great view of the mountain. The shower curtain was dirty. Our mattress was too hard for my back. The problem is the service in... More
