Plan B Hotel – Living Chamonix is a lifestyle concept where you’ll find everything you’re looking for to live the best experience in Chamonix. The hotel is built around its large living space of over 700 sqm. There, you will find a large central bar and a restaurant where healthy and local food will be served. There is also a pop-up store, a space for children, games (billiard, table football, board games), and even 2 bowling lanes to make a nod to the history of the place. Finally, for the more studious, you will enjoy the lounge area or the conference room. And don’t forget to relax at the spa! For your accommodation, you will have the choice: from a single bed in a dormitory to a 2-bedroom, fully equipped, apartment and passing through a whole series of room categories to satisfy both the solo traveler, a couple, a family or a group of friends. The location is great, just next to the main bus station that will take you to the different ski resorts (even in Italy and Switzerland) and to Geneva airport as well. Aiguille du Midi cable car is at 300 m and the city center is 5 minutes’ walk. As you can see, it is a real place of life where locals and visitors come to mingle.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Perfect location next to the bus stop from Geneva. Shuttle buses at the front door for all the skiable domaines. Nice restaurant at the hotel for breakfast and dinner. At the beginning /end of the pedestrian village of Chamonix. Modern and clean. Convenient Ski storage downstairs.

Not much to say except it was everything as advertised and it all worked. Location is great with ski buses outside the door and town center easily walking distance, parking underneath, restaurant and games in the lobby. Highly recommend at the price.

Well presented modern hotel in a great central location. Restaurant has very limited choice of food. Avoid rooms above the bowling alley which rumbles until 11pm. We were on floor 2 and it was really quite loud. Beware car park costs 18 euro a day!

Wow! Hardly want to post a review in case it becomes too popular to return. Absolutely top notch overnight stay. Underground parking (paid), dog friendly (paid), good size room with large comfy bed…and wait… a direct view of the Mont Blanc glacier. Located on the South side of Chamonix a short stroll to the chairlift and 10-12 minute walk in to town the location is also lovely and quiet. If needed there’s also lots of on site games to play a bar and restaurant. Would highly recommend.

We had a great stay here. The room was clean and very quiet, given that the window was on the street side. Great location, 5 minutes from the Aiguille du Midi cable car, there is also a Spar supermarket if you need water and other things. It is also conveniently located near the bus station. They don't have fridges in the rooms though, so keep this in mind. They also have a mini-bowling alley at the bar if you feel like playing.

Horrible restaurant. My wife’s vegetarian burger was constructed from bread and fried vegetables that had been left to cold. Any complaints to the waitress were met with a “I don’t speak English”. The tartar steak was awesome though, but that turned up unimportant.

Can’t really fault the hotel. Good value for money, clean, nice staff and close to the town centre. Ski bus stops outside the door as well. Good amenities, breakfast was nice, games and stuff to keep you occupied if that’s your thing, decent ski room and storage
