A group of 4 of us booked this place via Easyjet, and were put off by the reviews of the 4-person, 1-bed studios so opted for the 7-person, 2-bedroom apartment. While it may have been a squeeze for 7, there was definitely room for 6 to sleep and live comfortably (as long as 2 on you don't mind sharing a double).
We were there for a long weekend skiing, and having the ski bus stop 50m from the door was great - especially as most lift stations are at the other end of Chamonix (up to 25 mins by bus) so we were usually among the first to get on the bus and could get a seat before it worked its way through the valley.
In our case the reception not being open all day wasn't a problem as we'd heard it may be - they emailed us a door entry code and left our welcome pack in the pigeonhole in reception so we were able to check in. But it's worth asking about the check-out process - we thought we could stay in the apartment while they inspected our cleaning (we opted not to pay the 40 euro cleaning charge), but found out that wasn't the case and almost missed our transfer.
All in all, a great base for an active holiday - 10 mins walk to Chamonix, 1 min walk to Chamonix Sud with a few bars, restaurants & shops, and close to the ski bus.
