Very nice small hotel right in town and on the river with great Mountain views. Nice backyard on the river to read or drink. Small bar for beer or wine. Breakfast is fine. Only complaint would be the bath towels. The thinnest in Europe the first day. Better the second day.

We stayed here four nights with the Bed and Breakfast special so breakfast was included. Not sure I would pay the 12 Euro for breakfast. Room was great with a balcony right on the river and within a sort walk to train station, restaurants and major sites.

Hotel was very homely, the staff were all very helpful and would assist with any questions with regards to places to eat or skiing activities etc. Rooms were basic yet clean and comfortable. The free cake/cookies and hot drinks are great to come back too after a day on the slopes.

A cozy hotel in central Chamonix. Close shops, restaurants and ski lifts. Clean room with a fresh bathroom. Nice common areas, complementary coffee/tea and friendly staff. Only minus was an expensive breakfast - even though it was good!

The hotel was perfectly situated right in the heart of Chamonix which made it perfect for dropping things off or picking things up before walks and activities. Staff were exceptionally friendly, helpful and easily spoke English which helped immensely, they also helped us navigate bus services and even provided us each with a free bus ticket to get around Chamonix....

Clean. Modern. Amazing views from the hotel rooms. We opened our door over night to fall asleep to the relaxing noise of the river right next to the hotel. Quiet. Free parking for our car with no reservation

One of the best places I have stayed. Location, stuff, facility and good value for money. The personal are happy to serve help and guide. Good parking lot. Really spacuse apartment accommodating early and far above the specified. Only 5 minutes walking to the center. Ski bus stop less than 100m from the entrance.
