Hotel du Clocher Villa savoy
Ranked #38 of 73 Hotels in Chamonix
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Just back from 4 nights in this hotel. The staff are charming and the hotel is located 3 minutes walk from the ski lift. The rooms are the smallest I have ever encountered in a hotel but clean and well kept. The breakfast again is very basic but the location and staff made up for any minor grumbles.

Room Tip: All the rooms are small.

This is a house turned hotel, rooms are small but they were spotless when we stayed and the staff were very welcoming. The walls are thin so you can hear all other guests come and go, luckily when we were there everyone was up early to ski and in not too late so it went with our movements... For 8€50 breakfast is a big basket of bread and croissants, boiled eggs, ham, cheese and yoghurt and as much tea/coffee and orange juice as we wanted. The rooms are expensive for the size but the location is great, right in the centre of town and yet on a little lane that is quiet. We had to leave a day early as we had a problem with our car and they wouldn't refund our rooms which would have of course helped. Bad day be better but at ten to midday they said it was too late. We weren't surprised but it would have left a nicer feeling. Had lovely three days in Chamonix though!

Filthy and untidy hotel with management only interested in making money (hotel is in the very center of Chamonix and they are aware of it. Not welcoming staff, old rooms. There are certainly better places in Chamonix for the same price

This hotel is truly awful. It's filthy and the management just didn't care. There was dust everywhere during our stay, curtains that were threadbare and broken light fittings. It's the shabbiest hotel we have ever stayed at - not cheap and cheerful as others suggest; nothing cheerful about it. We had booked for three days and just had to move to another hotel. Avoid - there are much better options in Chamonix.

Room Tip: Go to another hotel.

I was in Chamonix for a conference during the summer. I stayed at Le Clocher for 6 days. I found it to be ideal for someone looking for a place that provides the necessary minimum. The room was not as small as I thought it would be (by french standards), the bathroom was also quite spacious. I stayed in a room that looked to the back (room 10). You can hear noise from the chalet next door during the day sometimes but people don't usually stay up very late in Chamonix - apparently. So You can easily get a good night sleep. I didn't really have any complaints about noise or anything of this sort. There's one lady who's in charge of most things at the hotel, she was very helpful and efficient in answering any questions that i had concerning the town and the place. The place used to be a chalet, but the owners turned it into a hotel (i think they only have 10 rooms).
I only had breakfast at the hotel on one morning. You get the typical french "package" coffee, croissant, bread, butter and jelly. But you have to pay 8euros per meal for breakfast. Personally I found it to be much more convenient to buy one or two croissants (or brioches) for breakfast from the boulangerie (bakery) in the main square of the town facing the church - mostly since i don't really need to have a morning coffee (the bakery is a 1-2 min walk from the hotel).
I would recommend anyone who has limited budget to stay at Le Clocher. It's actually the cleanest 2 star hotel that I've ever stay at.

There are definite pro's and con's to this place. I'll start with the good....

The Good
Location is excellent. You are smack bang in the center of town and very close to ski lifts. There is a very close gondola near by but you have to walk up a very steep hill to get there. You are better off getting around via bus.

The elderly lady who runs the place is very pleasant and friendly.

Rooms were cleaned daily when we left.

The Bad
The rooms are tiny! Really small. Our toilet didnt flush properly. Appears to be blocked but I think its just how it works. This is not a pretty room.

The breakfast which you pay 8 euro per day for (i dont think its optional) is a complete rip off. You get a croissant, orange juice and a coffee/tea. I was expecting a lot more than this for 8 euro.

I was in room 1. If you are a light sleeper you are going to be woken up early by people talking very loudly outside your room which is right on the front door. (its a converted house)

Personally...I'd rather pay the extra for a proper hotel but my friends were more than happy to rough it a bit and save some euro. Horses for courses at the end of the day.

Room Tip: Rooms on the middle floor are best! Not room 1 and not the rooms in the loft. They are even smaller.

I've just spent a few days at the Hotel du Clocher as part of a group of work colleagues. The lcoation was excellent and probably no more than 50m to the main street in Chamonix. It was also close to the slopes with around a 5 min walk through the Club Med hotel to the nearest green run in the Savoy area.

We stayed on a B&B basis. Breakfast was croissants and rolls with cheese and a choice of tea, coffee or chocolate. Rooms were fine even with a couple of large blokes sharing them. The attic rooms were a bit tight on headroom though.

Overall I would stay there again and would recommend to others. The lady who ran the hotel was always helpful and looked after us well.
