We booked this hotel on a recent stopover for a couple of nights in Chamonix Mont Blanc. The hotel is in a great location for the main township, but that's all it has going for it!
On checking in, there was one lady at the desk and she was courteous, but trying to check us in and answer calls at the a same time. We had no help with our luggage.
The hallways to the rooms had a foul smell, on entering our room, there was a towel on the floor in front of the bathroom, 1 soap, 2 plastic cups, and a hand towel, not bath towels in sight. The bath had hair stuck to it. Clearly it wasn't cleaned properly. The second day housekeeping left some bath towels, as I went to open the towel after a shower long black hairs feel into the bath. Being blonde, I know they are not mine! Disgusted to say the least!!
The room is dark, lighting layout poor, no air conditioning and 1 night was very cold and the heater doesn't even work! No bottled water, just a small kettle and two coffee mugs and nothing else??!!
The room has a nice view of the mountains but also the train track that ran as early as 6/7am great way to start your day.
Wifi - what wifi... The system was ridiculous, I've had dial up with better speeds and less dropouts! When I called reception to complain about the internet, she started regurgitating the process of connecting. She clearing wasn't listening and then proceeded to ask me to come to reception so she can show me...!
Overall, not a 4 star in my opinion, looks cheap and I felt dirty the whole time we were there. Chamonix on the other hand was speculator will stay somewhere else next time.
