“great little hotel”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

We stayed 11 nights in February, hats off to the housekeeper for managing to get order in a treenagers room on a daily basis. The rooms are of a good size, the place is kept very clean,(clean towels daily) and the staff very friendly and helpful. The room did tend to get very warm but at least you can open the window. The ski room isnt accessable from inside the hotel so you will need to take your outdoor shoes with you. All in all a very pleasant stay and we'd happily return.

Compared to the other hotels in the area this place can be a great stay. It's location could not be better for going out in the town. The staff is friendly and the bar is cute. The rooms are clean, warm and have almost a swiss/ski feeling to them. I would definitely stay here again. Some rooms are right on the river. If you leave your window open you will hear a babbling brook all night.

Just returned from a week in Chamonix staying at this hotel situated in the heart of the town. Very good value for money. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Location is perfect as it's in the heart of the town but not noisy at all.

This is a very lovely old FRENCH hotel, we had an excellent time during our stay and thought the hotel was great value. The staff were very friendly for french and once you got over that you can enjoy yourself. As with all hotels of this age the rooms are smaller and not as well appointed but that is also the charm. The food was excellent in the restuarant. Do not come here if you want 5 star luxury and service you will be disappointed, but if you accept that the world is not perfect then you will enjoy yourself.

Room Tip: You are in the heart of the town so expect street noise.

Stayed at la vallee blanche for a long weekend mid December. For a three star hotel this little place packs a punch.
Its location is in the middle of Chamonix, within a\ short walk of the train/coach station and ski buses.
It is a family run hotel and the warmth comes across in every member of staff.
Midday check out is standard, and they offer a shower service if you wish to ski and check out later in the day.
The boot/ski room is perfect, firmly secure with pin code entry and modern boot heaters to ensure your boots are toasty and dry in the morning.
The rooms are small, but more than manageable, the only negative is that on the first floor, the music from the bar can be heard, but it was always off by mid-night.
Breakfast is an extra and costs 12 Euro, hot option available, fresh juices and coffees + continental.

This is not a hotel to impress the love of your life as amenities are basic, but inline with the three star rating.

For value, location, service and the ability to book flexible dates (not just week long stays) this little hotel works.
I am back in Chamonix 2012 and it is only the fact that this place is fully book that I will not be returning on this trip.

Charming hotel in the heart of Chamonix. Warm, comfortable, if slightly basic rooms. The hotel has a lovely location next to the river. Only complaint is that the bathroom was a bit grubby, but they replaced the shower curtain half way through our stay, without us having to ask for it. Excellent value for money (summer rates). Polite and helpful staff. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: The river is very noisy which we loved, but if you need total quiet book a room at the front of the...
