The hotel is located within proximity to major attractions in town. The ski bus stops right in front of the hotel which is quite convenient. Also mountain drop-off's office is located right across the street if you're using their service. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Overall, my stay was superb. Highly recommend this hotel.

Hotel L'Arve is a great hotel. Excellent location, friendly staff and clean rooms. Would recommend this hotel to anybody visiting Chamonix. The hotel is well equipped with a small gym and sauna (great for tired skiing legs).

I've stayed here many times, summer and winter. The prices are fair for Chamonix, the hotel is friendly and largely quiet despite its central location - it is perfectly located for access to the Brevant lift via the Savoy nursery slope drag.. There is a nice foyer lounge and bar. It also has parking - which is useful in central... More

I'm writing this review in this hotel room as our last day in Chamonix. We spend 4 nights here. Every single morning at 6:30am the people living above us, started to moving around including their furniture! The wooden floor has nothing else for noise insulation, so we CAN feel their every single move!!! Unless you can get the top floor,... More

We stayed two nights in Chamonix, in early October, at the Hotel de l'Arve, in Chamonix. The hotel is located right next to the Arve River. Our double Room # 47 was on the top floor, at the back corner of the hotel, right on the river -- a great location, but a better room would have been on the... More

We came to Chamonix in the off-season to go to Aiguille du Midi take the cable car and ride to Hellbroner, so we wanted a hotel that had a view of the mountain. Even though our room was on the ground level, we did have a view over the building of the mountain. The room was clean and comfortable, absolutely... More

The hotel sits along the small river by the same name, L'Arve, and our room looked out over the river with a great view of the mountains. Our room was average size with a small but modern bathroom and walk-in (but very small) shower. There was a closet with shelves which was nice, as opposed to the usual armoire which... More

I am in this hotel right now and it is the worst of our 2 week trip. We paid for the superior room, highest level and got a dump of a room and view. Pictures are from our room right now. We are especially frustrated because we booked this room almost a full year in advance. What a dive!
