We are a family of five, kids ages are 19,16,14 and I am trying to decide on a hotel in Chamonix. I have read, and re-read so many reviews and just as I settle on one.hotel I read a horrendous review. I know this is always a problem but I just wish someone could say, we recently stayed at X and it was close to the restaurants and easy walking to the train station etc and the staff were polite and helpful...or something along those lines. We liked the look of The Mecure but gets poor reviews for the staff, looked at Les Cetes Blanches...? And several others. We just want good service, nice rooms and if possible a place to sit with a fire :) thanks if you are able to help.
