Even though this hotel hasn't got all the facilities in your room as others it is a brilliant stay. Located about 600m from the centre of town and only about 50m from a train station it is ideal. The rooms are very comfortable, large, great bathroom and the views are to die for. We had room 109 with a view... More

La Chaumiere not only met our expectations, it far exceeded them. We stayed as a couple over a long weekend (Valentine's day - for our 3 year anniversary) and had everything we needed for a superb ski holiday. We arrived with low expectations due to its two stars, but were pleasantly surprised to be wowed by every part of our... More

We stayed here over New Year 2013/14. We had the most fantastic time and were very well looked after by the lovely Swedish staff – Olly and Cat and French girl at front of house - Camille. The hotel has a lovely cosy chalet style feeling and it has been nicely decorated and brought up to date. The rooms are... More

We came here for 5 days during 2014 New Year for family vacation. The hotel is very close to SCNF train station of Les Moussoux so for us who came by train from Paris, it is very helpful. We just basically need to walk about 100m from the station to the hotel. Additional to that, this hotel is just in... More

Thank you to all the friendly staff at La Chaumiere - a welcoming, rustic, nicely decorated Inn in Chamonix. Three of us stayed here late Dec '13. Great little bar for a pre-dinner drink. The rooms are small but functional with a elements of Scan design. Someone on here wrote it's a bit like a hostel - it's better than... More

Stayed in August 2013. Rooms are very clean, front desk helpful and knowledgable. Hotel is somewhat outside Chamonix, had a bit of trouble finding it on foot. Is a significant walk to get to town, trains and buses run, but are infrequent. Reservation came with transit pass for stay duration. View from front of hotel of the glacier is outstanding.... More

We had a wonderful 3-day stay at La Chaumiere in Chamonix. From the first moments of our arrival to the last, the staff were amazingly helpful and friendly. The excellent restaurant served gourmet 3 and 5 course meals each evening. The desk staff gave us advice on ski locations, sighteeing, transport, made bookings or us - in fact, nothing was... More

We arrived on the first day of the summer season in 2013. The restaurant staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is run by a scandinavian family who were really friendly too and who obviously take pride in the appearance of their little hotel. The decor has been nicely done. Our room was on the front of the hotel and... More

Staff is excellent, very helpful in everything from arranging reservations at restaurants, to taxis, to holding luggage while out climbing. We stayed in multiple rooms due to our climbing schedule. I can say that room 105 and 106 were excellent (105 faces back of hotel and is very quiet, 106 faces Mont Blanc and can hear traffic but never very... More

Stayed here two nights in august. The hotel is ok but quite basic. Inside it has a bit of the look and feel of a youth hostel. And, unfortunately, the best rooms with a view of Mont Blanc,for wich you pay a premium, are also on the road side of the hotel. Hence they comme with the noise of the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Mountain Lodge is a real mountain home offering a unique fusion of Scandinavian simplicity and functionality mixed with charming alpine style.La Chaumière is in an enviable location, within walking distance of the main shopping street, in the old town centre of Chamonix Mont-Blanc and just a stone's throw from the train and bus stop. When you stay at La Chaumière you are literally steps away from some of the world's finest mountaineering, skiing and hiking. ... more   less
