Myself and some friends stayed here while we were alpining in the area. The rooms are nice while not elaborate. Some have balconies and the views from the south side of Mt Blanc are sensational.
The staff are very natural and helpful and the place has a family feel. We required some unusual breakfast times and they were happy to help. Also they upgraded us from our basic economy rooms on 2 separate occasions. They also didn't mind when we dried all our mountain gear on the balcony..
My only criticism is that the street is noisy and this can affect the quality of your sleep. You could close the good quality double glazed windows but with no aircon, this makes the room very stuffy.
Location is the very centre of argentiere. A free bus runs to chamonix but stops about 1930 (the time, not the year). After that, if you stay out late a taxi back will knock you back 35 euro. Argentiere has a couple of good bars and restaurants though and is quite relaxed.More
