We rocked up to Chamonix without a reservation and after checking out a few places this seemed the best. The gentleman checking us in was very helpful and offered us the last room. He advised it was a refurbished room. It was small but very clean and comfortable. My only annoyances were that 1. We had no hairdryer (which I'm...

Where to begin? This place was inexcusably terrible. I was with a group that stayed here in late January 2017, which was shortly after the hotel had supposedly completed most of its renovations. We knew we weren’t getting the refurbished rooms, but the common areas were supposed to be completed. They were not, and the photos on the website were...

I arranged a holiday here for 12 Colleagues. I was staying with another 3 colleagues in my own apartment. The Commercial section insisted on charging a deposit and then charging for the entire bill before arrival. (I can see why. No-one would pay if they saw the facilities and experienced the abysmal administration. I asked Marion DESAGULIER, Attachée commercial, to...

It is almost comical how bad this hotel is. I booked with friends 6 months before staying Initially we were charged deposits. Then.... A further full cost of the stay was taken, even for those only visiting for a group meal. Refunds took weeks. My reservation was lost on arrival. But found 30 mins later. The room on sixth floor...

Anyone expecting cutting edge room design in an alpine hotel will be disappointed. This place takes the decor to a new low level and compounds it with frankly the worst customer service I have ever experienced! Discounting the fact that per room per night, I was paying thrice the rate scrawled on the front door of this dump; the service...

The worst thing about this hotel is the total lack of value for money. The older rooms (most of the rooms in the place) are totally awful. Fittings hanging off the wall (see photograph) Tiny rooms. Dirty rooms. Tired beyond belief if – if they were an animal they would've been put down. And all for the tidy sum of...

We stayed in this hotel for one night before checking in our rented condo. The hotel has a great central location, right by the local Chamonix valley bus station. The hotel has been partially renovated, we stayed on the renovated floor and the rooms were very nice. The rooms are decent size, modern and beds are firm and very comfortable....

We were very nervous to stay here after seeing the recent reviews in the time between booking and traveling, but were relieved initially to be lodged in a remodeled room. That is, until we saw the room. The new decor is hideous, reminding me of a mix between a dormitory in an American community college, tenement housing for factory workers...

Booked with some trepidation given recent reviews. Paid extra for a newly refurbished room and was very pleasantly surprised. Check in was smooth despite arriving late. Room was very comfortable and modern. Location is great.
