Chalet like rooms with toilet separate from bath and sink, and very clean. Located less than 10 minutes from the rail station, and 5 minutes from restaurants. Only issue was the free Internet, it went off for almost 12 hours, and was off and on a few times. Hiking maps would have been nice to offer, but we purchased them from the Tourist center, a 10 minute walk. The water was very hot and instant, the shower as my other France review stated, had a glass enclosure which only covers half the shower, so turning the water on full speed makes a mess of the floor. Breakfast buffet for $14 Euro's was fine, cereal, juice eggs, yogurt, etc., coffee was not to good my wife said. Mcdonald's opens at 10:30, so no breakfast there. There was a good omelette place( La Poele) which served a nice omelette and green salad for $10 Euro, so there are options if you can't get down for breakfast on time. Our 1st floor room #3 looked out on the backyard and had a nice view of Mont Blanc. We opened the door at night (late September) and enjoyed the fresh air with very little traffic noise. The front desk was pleasant and very helpful, the $120 Euro fee from September 22-27 was well worth it. Our double bed with separate down blankets was very comfortable. There are stairs or a lift to get baggage up to the room. We went to the Casa Valerio Italian pizza restaurant 3 nights in a row, go out the front door, go left under the train track, it is only another minute after on your left. The house white wine was $3 Euro, the pizza excellent, and pasta good. (gnocchi's like homemade). I highly recommend this place for a great non French meal. Chamonix is a picturesque town with many nice shops and decent food. There do not seem to be many great walks for us couples who enjoy hiking 3 hours or more at a time. The best walk was after paying to go up the first part of the lift, then walking to the glacier. Better walks are found in Zermatt, longer, better marked with more trail places to eat at. That said Oustalet and Chamonix are nice places to visit and vacation in.
