We stayed at this hotel while on a walking tour in the area. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the view from the room that we had was fantastic. The only downside was that the pillows were quite hard and high and this wasn't particularly comfortable ( although my partner found them fine ). Overall this is a... More

The view and location was great. The views of Mont-Blanc from the room are memorable. Woman at the front desk was not welcoming, nor gave accurate information about tickets, opening times of activities, etc. Spotty internet service. Unreliable.

The hotel is good, clean, comfortable bed. The Internet works well (a bit slow, but ok). I think the hotel expensive considering what it offers, no parking, no breakfast... But I checked other hotels and this seems to be the rule in Chamonix. There's a public parking very close to the hotel (parking St Michel) and its 5min walking. The... More

In the city center, this hotel is well localized, near some good restaurants, market and touristic points. It has a beautiful view of the alpes and the bedroon was big and confortable. The staff was very helpful giving us some great advices about the city. I think the only problem is the elevator and the stairs. They are very small... More

We stayed here for one week and booked through a charter company. The hotel is nice, our room was quite big (4 beds) and the cleaning was good. There is a light continental breakfast served - and during the day the resturant area serves as a tea house. Apparently there is no dinner served here, but with so many great... More

The Hotel Les Cretes Blanches is a quality, mid-range hotel in Chamonix. If you're looking for a good balance of quality, price, location, and comfort; you should consider the Cretes Blanche. The hotel's location is superb, tucked away in a quite courtyard off the main shopping and dining street in Chamonix. Within 5-10 minutes, you can walk to virtually any... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights whilst walking the TMB. Rooms small but comfortable and well appointed. View of the mountains from our balcony was amazing. Very good breakfast. Staff friendly and helpful.

11 of us stayed (in various rooms) for a few days prior to doing the Tour du Mont Blanc and for a night after finishing the walk. The hotel is perfectly located within walking distance to restaurants/bars/shops/tourist sights like the cable car to the Aguile du Midi. The staff allowed all eleven of us to securely store our luggage for... More

The people at this hotel could not be nicer or more helpful. The hotel itself is very nice clean, and modern. It is in the heart of downtown Chamonix which makes everything easy. It is very quiet and our room looked onto Mont Blanc.

Having been walking for 3 days and staying overnight in mountain refuges, we wanted something better for our final night stay. The welcome and help we received from Lucinda and the hotel staff was superb. The hotel is clean, warm, well placed in the centre of town, with great views of Mont Blanc from the upper floors.
