“The Whole Package”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

I stayed at Gite le Belvedere over the Easter break this year and have nothing but good things to say. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and well equipped, the staff are all friendly with a 'happy-to-help' attitude and the large common area is the perfect space to relax and/or socialise after a hard days ski (the sofas are super comfortable too!). The location is ideal, just a 5 min walk from the Grands Montets lift or a short bus ride into Chamonix town centre itself. The meals on offer was an added bonus too. Breakfast in the mornings and a resturant quality home-cooked 2 course meal in the evening. In my opinion, you won't find better value for money than the Belvedere. I have already booked to come back this summer and would definately recommend it to others.

Room Tip: Room 8 had amazing views of Mont Blanc and an en-suite!

What the hotel looses in aesthetic appeal is made up for by Ben, Jack and Kim. What a pleasant crew always cheerful in the morning, we'll most mornings, Kim, had a big night. Lol. They are restoring the building to its former glory, between rounds of table tennis. The food is very good and the dining room is set up to encourage people to talk to each other and get past language barriers. It is close to most facilities and for the money I don't think you do better. A backpackers paradise

We stayed at Gite Le Belvedere for six days last week and can't wait to go back. The accommodation is very comfortable and scrupulously clean. Relieable wifi was available throughout the gite. Our family room (ensuite with double bed and two bunks) had a stunning view of Mont Blanc. Ben and his staff are fantastic, friendly and helpful and the food was of a really high standard, we ate breakfast and four evening meals (2 courses for 15 euros) which was great value. The location is perfect, quick, easy access to the slopes. Will be recommending to all family and friends.

Stayed here again in January, in the year since we last stayed the owners have put a lot of time and effort (and cash I expect) into sorting out the showers. There is now ample hot water, plenty of excellent showers, and some of the rooms are now en-suite.

We ate in the Gite one evening and had a really nice two course meal for 15 euro (A burger up in Argentiere would be around 15 euro as well)

Staff are super helpful, prices are good, the Gite scrupulously clean.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back, away from the road. No views to speak of but really quiet

Excellent value, basic accommodation perfectly located on the main road in Argentiere village. Only 1 minute from the ski rental shop (Intersport - cheaper to book online in advance), 2 minutes from the ski bus stop and 5-10 minutes from the Grand Montets ski lift station. The owner Ben and the young staff are very courteous and welcoming. The food served up for dinner (15E starter & main) was delicious. Breakfast (5E) was continental and perfectly good also (with a scrambled egg option for 2.5E extra). Not the Ritz, more along the lines of a bunkhouse. The beds in our double room were bunk beds, but very wide and comfortable. Shared facilities or ensuite are on offer. We had the shared facilities, again very basic but perfectly fine.

Great value for money, lovely staff, prefect location for ski lift. Clean, tidy rooms, hot showers, great home cook food, wifi, inviting and warming atmosphere felt like I was just at home. Wouldn't stay anywhere else and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone. Can't wait to go back.

Stayed at Gite Le Belvedere a week ago and can't rate it highly enough. The accommodation was excellent value for money and immaculately clean. Brilliant location to the ski lift, and the local bars and restaurants. We ate in the gite most nights as it was incredible value and good food after a hard day skiing. Hot showers, wifi and perfect hosts made this a brilliant weekend away. Will be returning.

Room Tip: Recommend the rooms facing Mont Blanc for an excellent view and ensuites.
