I can’t understand some of the negative comments posted here.
We rented a room for 2 days in the summer. The location is perfect – very, very central. Rooms were clean and spacious, with a great view towards Auguille du Midi and Mont Blanc. We arrived very late, around midnight, and the staff just emailed us the entry password for main door and left the keys in the door. We also got a free upgrade to a larger room. There was free wi-fi in the room.
We booked this through hostelbookers.com, and treated the place like we would a hostel, not a 4 star hotel. For the price it was very hard to find something of similar standard. I stayed in quite a few winter skiing “apartments” in France, cheap hotels as well as some “gites”, or hostels, in the summer, and for the price Chalet Whymper offered very good value for money, IMO.
And oh, it's spelled Chalet WHYMPER I believe.More
