We stayed at the Hotel de L'Arve for eleven nights in August 2011. We picked the hotel based on the favorable reviews we found in TripAdvisor and we couldn't agree more. If you like sitting on your own private balcony with Mount Blanc towering above, the river running immediately beneath you, paragliders floating by in the distance, a public promendade immediately across the river that affords unlimited fun people watching, delicious breakfasts, and exceedingly helpful and lovely staff, then try this hotel like we did. We were delighted.
By the way, if you want the larger size room (two twin beds and a full sized sofa in the room together with a sitting area table), plus the advantage of a corner room with windows one one side and a sliding door to the balcony on the other, then ask for either room 39 (second floor, the one we had), or room 45 directly above on the third (and top) floor. There are also two other though smaller rooms on each floor adjacent to rooms 39 and 45 that otherwise have the same views and frontage to the river, if a smaller room suits your needs.
The location of the hotel is excellent. It is only a couple minutes walk from the center of town and yet it is tucked away nicely so that you feel a comfortable separation from the noise and faster pace of the central area.
We highly recommend this hotel.
