We booked 2 nights at this hotel on 5 & 6 April. I like the space and cleanliness of the room. The furniture is still good and a good mountain view from window. Your staff does her job perfectly. After booking hotel staff need to advice guests how to reach hotel by train and provide a simple map showing the... More

Just 200m from local railway stop. Clean rooms and friendly staff.... good breakfast too. fantastic views up to Aguille and Mt Blanc glaciers. Ideal for Skiers and walkers wishing to be away from town centre and poised for easy access to all zones.

We have been coming to Chamonix since 1987 and only discovered this gem of a hotel this year. We stayed 3 nights on a B & B basis that we booked online. it is only a 2 stars hotel but it feels like a 3 stars. The rooms are spacious, there is ample parking outside and the views on the... More

We stayed one night in March to enjoy some late season skiing and booked into Hotel Excelsior as it's closer to our favourite Le Tour slopes than central Chamonix. We arrived by car and was pleased about the free parking provided. Our room was cosy, perhaps a bit dated but for one night that's no problem at all. It was... More

Stayed in Excelsior Hotel for 3 nights, had a wonderful stay. Nice staff, old but charming hotel. Near the train and bus stations, it is a quick trip to Chamonix center and the ski lifts. Great mountain views, nice food. Breakfast could be included in the rate.

Excelsior is a great hotel located about five minutes from the Argentiere ski lifts. The rooms are basic and clean and the breakfast is scrumptious. The staff is also very friendly and polite. I recommend a stay at Excelsior when visiting Chamonix.

nice stay, friendly staff, good food, the breakfast buffet a bit expensive, but the dinner was very good - certainly worth it's money! we had a room with balcon liked with our other friend, so very nice to be able to have a drink after the skiing

The hotel is average. Big rooms, but no hot water for showers which after a day on the slopes was not great. The menu for Dinner in the hotel restaurant sounded great, but in reality was disappointing. Small portions and each dish lacked any real flavor. We planned in having desert too but changed our mind after the lackluster and... More

We stayed here in January for 5 nights in a room with the view of Mont Blanc. The Room: Really clean and spacious. Honestly, not a bad word against it. The shower was nice too - just right after a day of boarding. The Staff: Every single member of staff we came across were lovely. The hotel reception were really... More
