Very friendly and helpfully staff. For us it was a really great breakfast: different kind of breads, frech fruits, jams, cereals and so on. The hotel has a big park area and it is very central to all telecabines.

Down a small side street this little gem is tucked away. Myself and 3 of my buddies stayed here for a 4 night ski trip at the start of the year. Rooms were ok size, decent bathroom, beds were usual ski hotel type so very average. Hotel was nice and warm. Pretty good breakfast in the mornings. Typical small alpine... More

We travelled in off season and were lucky enough to have a top floor mountain view room and balcony. The room was clean warm and comfortable. The mirrored wardrobe makes it look larger but is very comfortable in size. The bed was very comfortable and we had the best sleep even being on the river side. I am a light... More

Wonderful place to be while enjoying Chamonix. View of river from our large-feeling room was great. Nice people at reception: able to be helpful even though our French is poor, their English was great. The breakfast buffet was ample and yummy. Having a bar downstairs is nice, although we did not use it. The hidden gem is the grocery store... More

stayed for one night at the end of our Tour du Mont Blanc trip. The hotel is just in the center of town, close to everything. The room, staff and breakfast were all great. The price was very good too. Highly recommended.

The Hotel l'Arve is perfectly located in the centre of Chamonix, next to the river that gives it the name and with excellent views to the towering peaks of the Aguille du Midi and others. Very friendly staff, comfortable clean rooms and an excellent breakfast choice make this hotel the perfect place to stay in Chamonix. And it is within... More

I returned to Chamonix for holidays after 40 years of absence with a 23 yold son. I really enjoyed staying in this small boutique hotel which can provide this friendly almost family chalet warm feeling. Although we stayed in summer, we enjoyed the wooden panelled walls in the different spaces at the entrance level. I recommend the buffet breakfast every... More

Our experience at this property was excellent in every way. We were greeted by a friendly, caring staff. The sweet St.Bernard added to the atmosphere. Our room was a reasonable size and very comfortable. What made our stay particularly delightful was the sound of the rushing river water right outside of our room. The mountain views were also spellbinding. The... More

Centrally located, but quiet, with a yard on the river to relax in, we enjoyed our stay here. Highlights were the great breakfast and friendly, helpful staff, including Basil (hope the spelling is right), the St. Bernard.

We stayed two nights at the nicely located hotel close to the center. Room was very clean and charming, the breakfast much more extensive than expected and the people were very friendly. We enjoyed our stay in Chamonix very much.
