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.

We stayed 3 nights at Hotel L'Arve, at the beginning and end of our Tour de Mont Blanc. Our room was directly over the river, with a lovely balcony facing Mt Blanc and the entire massif. The hotel features a great breakfast, will store bags if you are trekking, and offers a lovely garden setting on the river for afternoon... More

We had a room on the first floor that opened to the terrace. The terrace was very nice; it overlooks the water and has great views of the mountains. The room and bathroom were a nice size and not cramped. There is a grocery store nearby (go to the mall via the garden off the lobby). This hotel is in... More

We loved this hotel and its chalet atmosphere. They have complimentary tea/coffee and cake everyday from 16:00-17:30 and we enjoyed sitting and relaxing in their spacious living room/lobby. The room was a nice size, clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It is located right next to a bus stop that will take you anywhere in the... More

Stayed two nights. Very clean, great breakfast, hot eggs in addition to all the French breakfast items, cheeses, cold cuts, fruits, breads, cereals, yogurt, croissant, hard boiled eggs. Kept our luggage in storage after we checked out. Very helpful and kind by keeping an ice pack for a leg injury frozen. Didn't mind getting it or returning it to freezer... More

Ideally situated in the heart of Chamonix town centre with free parking and friendly reception staff. Our room faced the car park but this didn't matter to us as low cloud meant that no-one saw the Mont Blanc for the duration of our stay. Room was clean and a nice king size bed awaited us after being out the whole... More

I liked this place. I liked the Chalet feel. Rooms - we had a king size bed, which we didn't always get in France. Plus, the rooms were really clean. We had a terrace overlooking the mountains. We bought wine and drank out there every day. Walls are a bit thin, so turn on a white noise maker on your... More

This is a fantastic hotel. It is full of character yet still quite practical. We stayed for just one night whilst driving from England to Italy. The free on-site parking was a key factor for us in choosing this hotel as well as being so handy for the Mont Blanc tunnel, so we could get through the tunnel early, before... More

We stayed here two nights on our European visit to mount blanc hiking. This was nicely located near the river so you could get your bearings. The rooms were good size nice areas to store things. Breakfast was delicious, even had eggs scrambled. Email ahead for gluten free bread. Didn't have any on hand. Nice fruit. The bed was comfortable... More
