This hotel is right in the centre of Chamonix . It is B&B only. the breakfast is good with selection of cereal, scrambled egg. cold meats. Coffee machine and a good bread selection. Breakfast started at 0800 and a 0730 would have been better. On our last day when we had to leave early they opened the breakfast room with...

Great apartement with excellent location. Near bus stops to all skiareas. We got a much bigger apartement than we expected and we live there comfortable for a week. Clean and nicely decorated. We will live there again if we go back to chamonix.

Our stay was excellent! Having stayed at Hotel de l'Arve previously, we knew what to expect, but this time (there were three of us, each wanting a bed!) we took an apartment for more space. The location in the center of Chamonix is perfect for shopping (groceries, clothes, and ski needs!). Clean apartment with good new facilities. The bedroom downstairs...

We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment. Check in was easy and the staff were very nice. The apartment was large and had a nice living room, kitchen, and balcony. The kitchen had dishes, pots, pans, an oven, and microwave. It also had a coffee maker and a hot water kettle. The location was perfect and a very short walk...

Clean rooms, adequate breakfast and afternoon tea, great spot for access to the Chamonix town centre, shops and restaurants. They have a warm, bright and comfortable lobby where you can sit. The bar is basic with no vin chaud on the menu but there are lots of lovely places within two minutes walk for all kinds of such treats. Would...

The staff where very pleasant to deal with....

Hotel L'arve is situated 1 block from "downtown" Chamonix. Easily walkable but the hotel also provides free bikes to ride around town. We did not use the sauna/fitness center but there is one available. Everyday in the afternoon they have free coffee, tea, hot chocolate and homemade cake by the fireplace. If you're on the mountain until in closes at...
