“top marks for a 2 star hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

4.5 stars...
Stayed for 1 night in September, 2012...We paid around 50 Euro per night which is just an incredible value. The hotel is clean, quite pretty on the inside and has a very comforting and cosy feel about it. Views are stunning although this also depends on the room that you get. Its away from the main road and is surrounded by woods hence the smell of the forest is your natural aroma as you go to sleep. We found staff to be very friendly and helpful. Would have given it a 5 star if it wasn't for the room. Pluses: charming, wooden panels, cosy feel. Minuses: quite small, no fridge, shower was actually in a corner of the room - hence you did not have a proper bathroom...The tv has no remote (although you would not really care if you are in a setting as pretty as this).....Having said that, I believe that there are other rooms (much larger) then the one we had. As this is only 5 minutes by car from chamonix, I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

Great location and very easy to find. Although our room was on the 5th floor and the lift only went to the 4th once we got to the bedroom the view above the treeline to Mont Blanc made it all worthwhile. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was so good that we eat in both nights, not needing to go out. On the second night all the tables had been moved outside onto the patio and we had a great meal in the open.
The breakfast was great. The room was clean and ideal for the three of us. We were on a tour of the Alps coming via Germany, Austria, and Italy and it was to the same high standards as all the other places we had stayed. Ideally located for the Vallee Blanche Aerial Tramway and Aguille De Midi cable cars.
I would recommend this Hotel to any travellors

Room Tip: Pick a view of Mont Blanc. It was amazing.

Lovely setting. Comfortable common areas and dining room. Spacious room with fabulous view that was ever changing because of the cloud cover. Bedroom and bathroom perfectly adequate and clean, although pillow was a bit hard. Handy location and good value for money.

This was our one-night stop over in Chamonix, and I am sad to say that my experience was much different than that of other travelers.

For starters, there were some things that I liked about this hotel: it has a very nice view of Mont Blanc; the main sitting area in the hotel looks really nice, warm, and welcoming; and the breakfast is absolutely delicious.

Unfortunately, I think we were placed in the smallest room in this hotel. Our room looked like nothing you see in the pictures. We had a room with four beds on it: two normal singles side by side in front of the balcony, and a bunk bed tucked into a corner between the bathroom and door. There was barely enough room for the three of us to turn around in it; someone would have to walk into a corner for another person to open the door to the bathroom or to leave the room. Looking at the pictures of other rooms makes me feel even worse about the stay.

Don't get me wrong, everything was clean and nice, but incredibly claustrophobic.

On top of that, when we were checking out in the morning we had an incredibly unpleasant experience with a Russian lady who was working the front desk. Other than this, the staff were fantastically kind.

I just wish I hadn't spend the night in a closet.

Common places are great. View is awesome. Rooms are small but clean. Staff is very nice. Cant beat the bang for the buck. You can buy multipass for the lifts to the mountain directly at the hotel.
