Biggest complaint is the Internet. I stayed at the hotel for a long time - 3 weeks bc I was studying french. I had previously been in Senegal where I had near perfect internet, then to arrive in France - the most visited country in the world (literally, I looked it up) - and chamonix doesn't have Internet? What's wrong with this picture? So take that into account if internet connection is important for you. Also, the cleaning of the rooms was so so and overall quality was 'eh.
The good things (many more than the bad). Price is very good, location is fantastic (maybe the best in Chamonix), breakfast isn't too bad, staff very nice and multi-lingual. I witnessed many folks come in and not even attempt to say hi or thank you in french, even acting annoyed when the staff didn't fully understand them IN ENGLISH , but they maintained a smile and provided solid customer service. Lobby is quaint, rustic and provides a warm ski lodge vibe.
Would recommend if internet is not important.
