Visitor comments

  • "Walked in and immediately felt at home. The front desk staff was consistently kind and helpful. Everyone of them. Great breakfast in the morning and a wonderful little bar and plenty of cozy seating areas on the main floor. Beautiful views from the rooms and this hotel is also located along the river. Nicely located 2 minutes from the busy hub, which makes it even nicer. Fancy it isn't but welcoming and comfortable it is. Look forward to coming back." - Trip Advisor
  • "In Chamonix, one of the things you want is a good location, this hotel is great, very central but not in a noisy location. The staff were lovely, always helpful. Breakfast choice was good and free afternoon tea/coffee with biscuits is a nice touch too. Our room was good size, bed comfy. The hotel has 6 pedal cycles, you can borrow them at no cost (they book them to your room with a 100 Euro deposit if you fail to return them). They come with a frame lock, a security chain and a helmet. We cycled around the area for a couple of hours and thoroughly enjoyed it. If we return to Chamonix again, we will definitely stay here. I would have no hesitation in recommending this place. What you get is a nice hotel, where you feel comfortable walking in dressed in your boots and walking kit after a full day in the mountain. This is NOT a boutique hotel, it is not 5* luxury, it is a really nice, clean and friendly establishment for people looking for somewhere central in the lovely town of Chamonix." - Trip Advisor
  • "Booked on line last minute and was so pleased we picked this hotel. Easy to find and very affordable. They so very kindly gave us an upgrade and we had a terrific room with a sensational view. The bedroom extremely comfortable and the breakfast was delicious and not expensive. Secure on site parking which is a bonus for us. Right in the town and not far to the cable car." - Trip Advisor
