Our room was functional, nothing at all extra or to make it memorable. Bed comfort was so-so, bathroom tiny if marginal. We would choose other accommodations next time. Breakfast was offered but we choose to go elsewhere.

Great, simple hotel

If you want a no fuss hotel, with really clean rooms, then this place is perfect. The price is cheap compared to the rest of Chamonix, the rooms are not old or shabby, instead they are clean, new, simple, comfortable rooms.

The rooms were fairly spacious for France and the beds were super comfortable. And the View!! Good breakfast. I would stay here again.

Bad location for skiing

by Seeitforyourself on 03 Mar 2016 (Friends Traveller)

The hotel itself is quite nice, although very basic but our room was exceptionally clean which is the most important thing. The beds were very hard! And don't expect to fill up on breakfast, it's pretty much bread with ham, bread with cheese or bread with jam. The bread was lovely and fresh at least. There is a place to store ski equipment overnight in the form of a damp smelling large shed. The best bit for me was the staff who were lovely and friendly. The worst bit was the location. It's...
