The neighbourhood

Situated right by the Chamonix main train station, the hotel is well located for connecting transport. The Avenue Michel Croz is also one of the best streets in town for apres-ski action, boutique shopping and of course good food.

The Bar

Chambre Neuf is THE most popular Apres Ski bar in Chamonix during the winter and they have an awesome live band playing Sunday to Friday from 17:30 to 19:30. Therefore, if you want to have an early night, it is recommended that you request one of the rooms higher up!. As with all good bars, they have a wide selection of beverages as well as a great cocktail menu. In the summer, the terrace is the perfect outdoor space to enjoy lunch in the sun or an early evening drink.

The Restaurant

The hotel's restaurant is the Chambre Neuf Brasserie which offers fantastic international cuisine at reasonable prices. Their menu is regularly updated and generally includes a good mix of classic dishes such as Thai Chicken, Moules and Schnitzel as well as staples such as BBQ ribs and burgers (read our review). In the summer, meals are served either in the bar area or on the shady terrace which has views of Mont Blanc. In the winter months, the hotel opens up its stylish dining room to allow the bar area to be taken over for Apres-Ski.

The restaurant serves breakfast (07:00-10:00), lunch (12:00-15:00) and dinner (19:00-22:00) daily, and B&B and half-board rates are available.

Visitor comments

  • "My husband & I drove to Italy to spend Christmas & stayed in Chamonix on the way back home for one night so that we could visit the Ice Cave at the Glacier. The hotel was in an excellent location both for the tram up to the Ice Cave (just across the road & over a bridge) & for the bars, restaurants & shops in Chamonix. The beds were incredibly comfortable & the room was cosy. The music in the bar downstairs was quite noisy but our room was at the top of the hotel & once in our room we couldn't hear a thing & had an excellent nights sleep. We didn't have breakfast as we wanted to get an early start on our drive back down to Calais but we did take a peek & it looked good with plenty of choice both hot & cold. The reception staff were excellent, very friendly & helpful." - Trip Advisor
  • "I hosted a visit for 40 travellers from our local running club, to compete in the Mont Blanc Marathon event in June 2014. To keep costs down, there was room sharing by many of us, including some in triple or quad rooms. The rooms were comfortable, there was good food available, the bar has a great atmosphere, and it is a perfect location near the station. The assistance in planning the visit before we arrived, that started many months before our visit, was also excellent and very helpful. The best thing about the hotel is the friendliness of the staff - they were always keen to help, at all times." - Trip Advisor
  • "We stayed 2 nights and can't fault the hotel. Our room was huge, the staff were extremely friendly, the location was perfect for lifts/buses/restaurants etc. and the hotel bar had the best live music in Chamonix." - Trip Advisor
