We spent several nights at the Chaumiere and were really comfortable here. The personnel was very kind and helpful. We asked for a quiet room and got one with views to the garden and the Brevent and Flegere peaks. Nice views. You can even get better mountain views if you ask for a view to the Mont-Blanc, the Aiguille du... More

Dear Goodclient, thank you for your review. May I respectfully add we have TVs in the lobby and the bar which you are welcome to use. We do not feel we need TVs in the rooms as the majority of our clients are very sports orientated, in the mountain all day, and do not use them. We appreciate the mention... More

I stayed here during the beginning and end of my TMB trek. I sprained my ankle before the trip and the staff was able to book an appointment for me at the local hospital before I took off on my hike. When I came back, they remembered who I was and asked about my ankle. Kat and the rest of... More

Very good price/quality for chamonix. Very friendly people. Very clean rooms, and quite large for the price. Quite noisy though: railway nearby and minimal isolation between rooms. Dinner is not expensive, so don't expect top french cuisine. The bar and lobby are very nice for a short stay, but not the cosiest place if you want to spend more time.... More

Hello Edouard G, thank you for your feedback. We are happy you enjoyed your stay in La Chaumière, and that you have such positive things to say about the cleanliness, our reasonable prices, the team, etc. You are right, we do not do traditional French Cuisine, we are more inspired by a mix of French, Italian, Swedish and other influences,...

Not sure why this hotel has such high ratings. Front rooms are quite noisy as there is a train and a busy road that run right in front of it. Rooms are neat and clean but tiny and we could not stand up in half of the room due to large log that ran though it. Staff are indeed friendly... More

We found this place right outside of Chamonix. There is a bus service back into town or you can walk back via the little road towards the back of the hotel. The staff is super helpful.

Hello MsSnicker, Thank you for your lovely review. We are indeed very lucky to be so close to town by foot (10 to 15 minutes max), by train (3 to 4 minutes every hour in the daytime) and bus (3 to 4 minutes every half an hour). Unfortunately we can't help being near a road, but for future reference, do... More

Rooms are small, but clean. Staff is amazingly helpful. Breakfast buffet is fantastic! We even stayed for their prix-fixe dinner one night and it was also first rate and reasonably priced. It is outside of Chamonix, but only a 15 minute walk to downtown. I definitely recommend.

The Mountain Lodge is a real mountain home offering a unique fusion of Scandinavian simplicity and functionality mixed with charming alpine style.La Chaumière is in an enviable location, within walking distance of the main shopping street, in the old town centre of Chamonix Mont-Blanc and just a stone's throw from the train and bus stop. When you stay at La Chaumière you are literally steps away from some of the world's finest mountaineering, skiing and hiking. ... more   less
