Finding Hotel Richemond in this expensive resort town was amazing. Upon arrival, my room wasn't ready (about 11:30am so I wasn't expecting it to). The lady at the reception, was amazingly helpful by instantly giving me all the tips on where to visit in the Chamonix Valley, what to see when going up to the Aiguille du Midi...etc.
The hotel is located right in the middle of town at the front, and to the back a major road with bus routes, and a parking lot for those with cars. It is within 10 minute walk to the Aiguille du Midi gondola station.
The hotel looks like an old fashioned hotel from the 30s. Rooms are large with large closets, furnishing traditional although maybe slightly worned, except for the TV. However it's immaculately maintained. Not a speck of dust anywhere. The only problem is the bath tub, which does not have a shower curtain.
There is a small fee of 3 Euros for Wifi for a week (regardless of your stay), but it's only accessible on the ground floor in the lobby or the adjacent sitting room. There is also a billiard room? And a breakfast room which I never even used there.
I would love to return to Hotel Richemond, if I ever come back to Chamonix. Definitely one of my favorite hotels.
