Can't decide: Hotel Le Chamonix or Hotel Le Gourmets & Italy

Has anyone stayed at either? Le Gourmets & Italy looks bigger and more modern, yet its reviews on TA are not as good as the smaller Le Chamonix above a cafe. Is location perhaps a factor to consider? Definitely want a room with balcony & mountain views. Any other suggestions are welcome too! Thanks

Haven't stayed at either but I have taken clients to both. Le Gourmets & Italy is on a busy road so might be quite noisy. It also one the routes people take to and from Chamonix Sud late at night so you might hear late night reveller's noise.

Hotel Le Chamonix might be quieter at night. Both are an equal distance from the town centre, Hotel Le Chamonix is closer to the nearest major bus stop for the ski lifts.

We stayed at L'Hameau Albert 1er in a quiet corner of Chamonix, lots of the rooms have fabulous mountain views, private terraces, or balconies. Pool with a view of Mont Blanc, lovely gardens, and 2 good restaurants. Short walk into the centre of Chamonix, close to the Montenvers train stn, and the Aguille Du Midi cable car.
