We stayed here in March 2012 with a large group. We stayed in room 514 which had a beautiful view of Mont Blanc, was spacious with above average furniture, small flat screen tv with three english channels BBC, CNBC, and CNN, separate toilet and shower areas, large closet, safe in room, small refrigerator, hair dryer, large patio with two chairs, inside table with two chairs, queen bed, elevator service. No coffee maker or ironing board in the room as is typical for european hotels. Wifi available for 6 euro/day or 20 euro/week. Business center with one computer and printer. Ski storage room in the basement. You can request an ironing board and iron. The rooms were always too warm even with the heat off so we left the patio door open at night which meant hearing the night revelers, but at least traffic noise was not bad. Reception desk service was friendly.
Breakfast included unlimited coffee, cappuchino, expresso, cold scrambled eggs or eggs made to order which were always overcooked by the chef because of a grill that was too hot, half cooked greasy bacon, sausage. They always had a great choice of very fresh croissants and bread, a variety of whole and sliced fresh fruit, a variety of yogurt, fruit juice, ham, cheeses, and several different cereals.
Dinners were better than expected with a very tasty fresh fish dish almost every night as well as one or two other entree choices which might be chickent, duck, beef, pork, or pasta. Several appetizers, salads, cheeses, and desserts were offered each night. The desserts were quite good.
Chamonix has a complex bus system so it is important to get a schedule from the front desk when you arrive so that you know what bus to take and where to take it. Directions from the front desk were not very good about the bus. You are across the street from the Place Mont Blanc bus stop and just arround the corner from the Mummery bus stop. Buses run on a pretty frequent and convenient schedule to all the ski areas, different villages, and to various attractions such as the Agui di Midi.
There is a market on the ground floor of the building that the hotel is in. You are also very close 5-10 minute walk to all the best shops and restaurants in town.
Pick a room facing Mont Blanc as high as possible for less street noise.
