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 elevator and stairs. Nice view to the mountains. Room has a double bed and a bed sofa for third occupant. Enough wardrobes to store your clothes etc. TV was mounted high on the upper shelf of wardrobe so when laying in the bed watching the tv the colors were a bit distorted. Big bathroom with shower that had some kind of poor massage system, didn't find that very useful. Water was always hot so no worries there. Room had no fridge/minibar but windows did open and on the windowsill there was a railing so you can use that as an fridge in winter. No waterkettle either which was a minus. The walls are a bit on the thin side so keep your noise down.
Breakfast was good at least on a french standard. Good tasting not too white bread, cheese, ham, salami, boiled eggs, youghurt, fruit salad, coffee and a good selection of teas.
There was always a slight smell of kerosine or diesel oil especially at the hotel lobby, must be the heating system. We did get used to it but if you have a very sensitive nose it might be a problem.
Right next to the hotel is a supermarket called SuperU. Didn't like that one though. Found out that a chain called Petit Casino has a better selection of goods. These can be found all around Chamonix, the nearest to the hotel in the Alpina mall north of hotel. Ski bus also goes from the corner of this mall, about hundred meters from the hotel door.
