While on the tour we spent a night at this hotel in Les Contamines just outside of town but still on the trail. Very friendly staff, clean comfortable rooms and an excellent restaurant with very good food, a luxury while on the trail.

We picked the hotel using Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. The hotel is about a mile outside of town, which after a long day's hike was somewhat of a disappointment, but once we got there and settled in we understood that the extra effort was worth it. One pointer to the novice hiker; the hotels all expect you to... More

We stayed here on the 2nd night of our very wet TMB (8 of 11 days rained…or snowed) and that really makes you appreciate the boot drying room (aka the ski room). We were able to leave wet stuff in a space that was large enough to accommodate lots of wet gear, space is pretty limited in some locations, esp.... More

The hotel website might lead you to believe this is a luxury hotel. And in some ways it's great--The lobby is beautiful, the bar serves festive cocktails, and there is a pool. But it's not luxury by any stretch of the imagination. Our room seemed half renovated. The decor of our bathroom was dated. There was paint peeling off the... More

Having just walked TMB and stayed in numerous small hotels and refuges, this was the only disappointment. It is a basic ski hotel, clean, helpful staff and adequately comfortable room. The hotel website especially the photos depict this as a luxurious mountain hotel which it definitely isn't. More Premier Inn. The mismatch between the advertising and the actual hotel then... More

This is really a ski hotel and I imagine it's a great place to stay in the winter. I used it as a summer stop on my GR5 run. It is a mile or so out of the main old part of town and in a new and not so pretty area. Having said that there are some notable advantages.... More

Stayed for 4 nights end of second week in March 2014. Overall excellent experience. Pros: Hotel is 100m from the Montjoie gondola. For skiers, its a fantastic location. They have a ski equipment room in the basement that is easy to access - keep your gear there, then just put on your boots, grab your skis and its a short... More

We stayed here on our TMB hike - well located just off the trail and near a bus stop. Perhaps it was because we stayed at the end of the season (mid September) with only a few guests, but we felt that the hotel was missing warmth and atmosphere. Some renovation was in progress in the stairwell. The room was... More
