We stayed here for 1 night at the beginning and 1 night at the end of our TMB walking holiday
Great location very central for the town also right next to the River - hence its name
Friendly staff, lovely rooms and a great breakfast
Would love to return

To find a really good value hotel in Chamonix isn't easy. This summer we spent three nights at Hotel L'Arve. We booked a superior room with Mont Blanc view. The room (with wooden floor) was very nice and we loved the view and the river (L'Arve) which you will hear loud and clear when opening the windows. We also got a nice balcony. The hotel is centrally located and we got very good service. The breakfast is OK. For about 150 Euro in July this is a very good option.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with wooden floor

We are a familty of four with 2 kids, 6 and 8. The room was able to accomodate all four without a problem. We had a double bed and a single bed with a pull-out bed.
This hotel was by far the best throughout our one month stay in France (we stayed in 11 hotels). The room (#45) was extremely clean but the bathroom was so clean that you could have eaten a meal on the floor! We had a nice balcony accessed via a patio door and we had a big window on another wall. Balcony had a table and 3 chairs. Our view, nothing else but the Mont-Blanc and the Aiguille du Midi right in front of us. Lying down in our bed, we could see the entire mountain range. Just spectacular. Free parking and internet is 3E/30min. Employees were very nice and helpful. Looking straight down from the balcony was the Arve river.

We returned to Hotel de l'Arve after 21 years and found it, and Chamonix, to be much larger than we remembered. With two teenagers, we were happy to have a quad room with separate beds for the teens. Beautiful mountain views and great location make this a great choice. Daily breakfast was adequate but at 44 euros per day for a family of four, I would skip it next time around to enjoy some of the local spots in the morning. Evening cocktail at the small bar was nice addition. When staying at the l'Arve, don't expect luxury, but it is clean and the staff generally friendly and helpful.

We stayed at this place several times, were more than satisfied every time.
Rooms are clean, spacious, breakfast is plentiful and varied, and you are in centre of Chamonix. Cannot ask for more.

Beautiful little hotel located right in the heart of amazing Chamonix, along the Arve River. A 2 minute walk and you are amongst the shops and restaurants.
Our room was on the second floor, a Mont Blanc view room. The room was cosy and spacious, the best part was that our room was one of three that have a door to access a huge balcony. This balcony has tables and chairs and the view of Mont Blanc awesome.
I would highly recommend this hotel to my family and friends, hopefully I can make it back to Chamonix one day and I will stay here again.

This is the third year in a row we've stayed at Hotel L'Arve. Can't really fault it. Brevent slopes are within walking distance and handy for bus to other ski areas. Worked out at around £35 b&b for a room with a view (just) of Mount Blanc. Breakfast excellent and worth 11 euros. Restaurant appeared last year and had lunch there, which was good, but much cheaper options at Neapolis, next door & L'Etape just round the corner (the stakes at this place are top notch). Will be back next year.
