I stayed for 5 nights. I didn't have the breakfast as I knew the supermarket with fresh pastries was just around the corner.
The Croix Blanche is fine if you get it at a good price. I think I paid 95 euros per night which was possibly a little more than it was worth but OK for Chamonix. I also paid 10 euros per night for parking which was worth it as Chamonix is a pain for parking.
My room was really big but a bit dark, a bit tired, a bit boring, a little bit mucky around the edges. The communal areas were quite drab. It's got a really nice outside terrace serving drinks and food on the high street but I've been there before when staying in other Chamonix accommodation so no need to stay there.
On departure my the visa machine couldn't read my debit card and then my credit card. The receptionist was insistant that my cards were to fault and that the machine was working just fine. Needless to say, I went round the corner and used the cards to withdraw cash with no problem to pay the bill! In fairness, she was apologetic afterwards but it was frustrating as I was in a rush.
Would I stay there again? I've stayed in a few Chamonix hotels now and I'd probably stay at one of them first before choosing this one. I'd consioder this place if I could get it for less than 80 euros.
One last gripe. The wifi made me log in with a password each time I tried to use it. It failed more often than not so I gave up on it.
