We stayed here for 4 nights to enable my husband to cram in a few days skiing. The position of the hotel is excellent, in the middle of the town & next to the bus stops. We stayed here a few years ago, since when there has obviously been some refurbishment undertaken.
The reception staff were welcoming & spoke excellent english but were happy to encourage me to use my french. Our room, which had a mountain view, was spacious enough with plenty of storage, a room safe & separate wc from the bathroom. The hairdryer in the bathroom is adequate but I was pleased to have taken my own high-powered one.
Breakfast is buffet style & served on the top floor of the hotel with its wonderful views. There was a good choice of cold & hot food with omelettes cooked to order. We didn't try dinner as we preferred to visit different restaurants in the evenings. We had a couple of drinks in the bar, which closes promptly at 11pm. Not a great deal of atmosphere in the bar unless there happens to be a lot of people (there was a conference whilst we were there which helped).
There is a spa but we didn't try it so cannot comment on it.
All in all, the hotel was very good value and I would plan on staying here again when visiting Chamonix.
