Unless you're one of those death seekers who enjoy hurling themselves off Chamonix's Alps in all manner of contraptions, this really is the best place to stay. It's less than five minutes' walk from the Aiguille du Midi gondola station and ten minutes' walk to the Mer de Glace railway station. A gigantic parking lot is two minutes' walk from the hotel. The heart of the town itself, however, is - thankfully- roughly ten minutes' walk from the hotel. I say, "Thankfully" because Chamonix itself is a God-forsaken tourist trap- an architecturally-unimpressive town that's filled with overpriced cafes serving mediocre food to hordes of pretentious hikers, cyclists, mountaineers, and other "hardcore" types. None of this nightmare is encountered at this hotel. Its back deck / lounge / pool area is directly at the foot of Mont Blanc; the spectacular view we had for evening cocktails each night was totally unobstructed. Better yet, it was so peacefully quiet that it almost made you forget the insanity going on less than a quarter mile away. Speaking of Mont Blanc, it is worth every penny to experience it up close via Aiguelle du Midi and the connecting mini gondola to Pte Helbronne. It's also worth every penny to stay at this hotel.

a 15 min walk from the center, this hotel is nice but apparently not quite new. parts of it, including facade need renovation. In fact, the works were going on in the lobby during our stay. the first morning breakfast was a bit of a disaster - plates, cups, cutlery, napkins all amiss with no staff to ask for help. the second morning we got the seats in the main breakfast area and this time it was much better.
staff is very friendly.

Stayed in the area before as liked the cozy and charming town. Near a nice park good for running. Need to be a bit familiar with the area. Room equipped with kitchen utilities. Needed to keep re-logging into Wifi. Underwhelming furniture.

This is my second time in this beautiful hotel. This time however I went with my wife for our anniversary. The hotel is full of character and the staff are always keen to help. It's a small spa town on the border between France and Switzerland. Perfect for a weekend break for couples.
