The Hotel Vallee Blanche is perfectly situated in the centre of Chamonix, on the river, but away from the noise. The cable car up the Aiguille du Midi is a short walking distance. The English-speaking staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The man at the reception directed us, on our two nights in Chamonix, to restaurants we would not have... More

Leave the stuffy, overdone chain hotels to the posers. Hotel la Vallee Blanche is in a great location, has local beer in the downstairs pub, and is truly comfortable. Owner Alex seems to live at the front desk, and he has a cheerful and effective answer for anything, including weird cocktail orders. Good to see an owner who is present... More

Stayed for 2 nights at the end of our Tour of Mont Blanc. Very friendly staff. Rooms spotlessly clean and decent sized compared to some other places we've stayed in France. Breakfast was plentiful. Lovely views of Brevent and the river rushing past outside the window. Location is fantastic for the town and easy access to chairlifts etc. A very... More

This is a wonderful hotel. Lovely clean rooms with stunning views over Mont Blanc. The Breakfast was outstanding and plentyful just right for a day up the mountains. But the best part of the hotel was the very warm welcome and helpfulness of the staff nothing was too much trouble. Full of useful information and top tips. I would recommend... More

Nice, quiet and friendly hotel in central Chamonix. Decent price. I stayed here during the Marathon weekend and I had no complaints. Breakfast was not included in the price but you could buy that extra for 12 Euro and I think that it was a good breakfast..

Just returned from doing the TMB hike with a group of 7 women. Stayed here before and after the hike. We were warmly greeted each time and made to feel very welcomed. Alex always had a smile and friendly word. Joy was a bartender who very sweetly served us wine on the adjoining patio. Rooms were clean and cozy. We... More

We had the handicapped room (though we are not) on the first floor which was very convenient and right on top of the rushing water--made for great sleeping! The room and bathroom were amply sized, though they had not yet been updated. The hotel is in a PERFECT, central location in the heart of town, right next to the pedestrian... More

Stayed four nights here, what a lovely happy hotel, two minutes from the centre right on the river Arve. Nice, clean comfortable room with views of Mont Blanc and the Brevant. Great to sleep with the window open listening to the mad river going by. I have to mention the staff who were so nice, Maria and especially Alex who... More

Stayed 2 nights at this hotel recently. Room was a reasonable size - furnishings perhaps a bit dated, but that is part of the ambience! Value for price paid. Lovely views to the river from our room. Friendly staff. Great base to go to Mont Blanc and explore the Chamonix area. We did however find that a few activities in... More

I arrive solo on a bus from Geneva, and was pleasantly surprised by how friendly the staff was, and my room was very comfortable and clean with a traditional Alps decor. It was easy to grab a beer downstairs, the breakfast downstairs was hearty, fresh and a great way to start a day before hiking. I really enjoyed this hotel,... More
