We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment. Check in was easy and the staff were very nice. The apartment was large and had a nice living room, kitchen, and balcony. The kitchen had dishes, pots, pans, an oven, and microwave. It also had a coffee maker and a hot water kettle. The location was perfect and a very short walk...

Clean rooms, adequate breakfast and afternoon tea, great spot for access to the Chamonix town centre, shops and restaurants. They have a warm, bright and comfortable lobby where you can sit. The bar is basic with no vin chaud on the menu but there are lots of lovely places within two minutes walk for all kinds of such treats. Would...

We spent 2 nights at this hotel. It was perfect for what we needed while seeing the lovely town of Chamonix. The hotel is clean, comfortable and well positioned in town, close to restaurants and the lift up to aiguille du midi. We had a room overlooking the river and Mont Blanc. The staff where very pleasant to deal with....

Hotel L'arve is situated 1 block from "downtown" Chamonix. Easily walkable but the hotel also provides free bikes to ride around town. We did not use the sauna/fitness center but there is one available. Everyday in the afternoon they have free coffee, tea, hot chocolate and homemade cake by the fireplace. If you're on the mountain until in closes at...

Although this hotel is okay, comparing it to the other nine places we stayed during our trip, I found it average in comparison. The hallways and steps we walked to our room had stained carpet. There was an extra sofa/bed that crowded the room and obstructed the opening of the balcony door.

The hotel is right next to the pedestrian zone where there are many restaurants and shops, yet is easily accessible by car with it's own private car park (uncovered, but in September I didn't have to worry about snow!).

The Hotel de L'Arve is located away from the major congestion in Chamonix, and, with the river rushing in the background, it is quite peaceful. There is a lovely small courtyard next to the river which is perfect for sipping wine and looking at the majestic alps just beyond. The rooms are spacious and decorated lodge-style. It is a bit...

This hotel was booked for us as part of the TMB self-guided package. We couldn't have been happier with this hotel.
