Beautiful hotel in the heart of Chamonix!
We had an amazing two days here. Location was in the center of town, walkable to almost everything. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly (we love Sue!) Rooms were super clean and had everything we needed (minibar/fridge, hot water kettle for tea and coffee, robes, towel warmer, WiFi, etc.). We used the pool and warm tub in the spa every night. Very comfortable, clean, and relaxing. Would definitely stay here again!

Lovely staff, great stay!
This was a short stay, but the staff was incredibly helpful over the few hours we were there. We were starting a trek of the full Tour - the hotel stored our luggage, washed some of our clothes, and held our jewelry in their safe. They helped us with a dinner reservation too. The only downfall is that it is on a main square and when you sleep with the windows open, you can hear anyone staying out late and talking loudly. It's not a big party town, though, so regular noise was minimal and the fan they provided helped drown out quite a bit. This definitely won't stop us from staying here again!

8/10 Very good

Great friendly place to stay, right in the heart of Chamonix. With small balcony. My only criticism is the size of the room. Pretty small.

One of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed at. The staff here is so wonderful. They really went out of their way to be be helpful and are genuinely kind. Our rooms were just like you see in pictures. We had plenty of storage and the beds and pillows were very comfortable. No air conditioning but our room faced the river so we slept with the window open and we were very comfortable. Breakfast had plenty of options and the service was outstanding. Tips: quiet rooms face the river and bring your own blow dryer.

Amazing staff and location
Great service and location. Staff was extremely attentive and the amenities are lovely. The ski/boot room is a great area to just load and unload when leaving/entering the premises before/after skiing.
