Central but quiet location, a traditional building with its own courtyard, and rooms with balconies you can sit out on,looking up at Mt Blanc. Staff very helpful, with French and English language skills. A decent breakfast, and good value, pleasant experience. Wi-fi, while free, a bit variable.

Very helpful and welcoming English-speaking staff, and rooms with a view of Mont Blanc and the Aiguille de Midi, which I could see gleaming in the sunrise when I woke up. The hotel is off the road, but only a few minutes' walk from dozens of shops and restaurants. There's covered parking five minutes away. (The address isn't recognised by... More

Service is nice they help you out with any of your need. The owner Sue is amazingly nice she helped me a lot when i got a ill during my holiday. The location couldnt be better close to the biggest shop of the town and close to the bus stop.

This little hotel is situated in what I perceive to be the heart of the town. It's located off of a street and is not easily accessible by car. We had to park 5 minutes away. Parking in Chamonix isn't the greatest, especially if one isn't wanting to pay for parking. We arrived very late at night, we weren't familiar... More

This is a no frills budget hotel. Bedroom was an adequate size - funny decor - with a TV and a clean bathroom . We had a nice view of Mont Blanc. It is well located in the centre of town, but print the map as NO ONE knows this place so asking directions is pointless. The one complaint is... More

We stayed here for 3 nights while organizing final details for a climb of Mont Blanc. The staff was helpful with suggestions for shopping, day hikes and restaurants. The onsite breakfast was good; we were disappointed w/the dining collaboration with Alain Peru, a nearby restaurant. The location could not be more convenient and our basic room had a small terrace... More

The hotel is located in a pedestrianized area just a few steps off the main street, which makes it convenient to restaurants, shops and the Aiguille du Midi cable car. The hostess spoke perfect English (she was from England). The rooms were nicely decorated though small like many older hotels. My room had a comfortable double or queen bed which... More

An old three storey building in the heart of Chamonix. Has a small claustrophobic retro fitted elevator, good only for one or two persons, so not really help with big luggage. Property has a separate storeroom for ski equipment with boot dryer which is a huge advantage. Our room was number 313 in the third floor, right next to the... More

We stayed here for our Christmas trip to Chamonix for 5 nights, it is in a great location, straight off the main street and walking distance to most places. The rooms are basic and quite small, but they are warm and just what you need. The girls on reception were very helpful. If we were to return to Chamonix we... More
