We have just returned from our long weekend boarding in Chamonix. We stayed here on BnB which is all they do. The room was very dated but lovely, lots of space, flat screen TV and very warm. Great sized bathroom and just a lovely place to come back to after a day on the slopes. It is family run and very friendly we both loved it. Room was so clean and lots of fresh towels every day. You can get drinks at the little bar and sit in the cosy rooms or walk across the road to a small but lively bar.
The bus for the ski area's are just at the back door, however Brevent - Flegere is just a 7 min walk up a hill. We boarded this on the first day, it's lovely get your self over Flegere where you can find bars with music and some lovely long runs. Alternatively get the bus to Le Tour ( Balme) which has some just fab long runs, the Belle Place was my favorite red run. Last day we went to Grands Montets we didn't see it at its best as the snow came in, but the red back to resort was good fun!
Couple of things to help you out. Take a travel kettle we did and it saved us as none in room. For a lovely meal come out of front of hotel turn right, walk for 5 mins and turn left at the Millit store you will see some restaurants on the left, one is called La Table fab place great food, we had the cook it your self meat with salad and chips, stunning. For a bit more Apes ski go to the outdoor bar opposite the Irish coffee place. Good bit of vibe.
Only bad point on hotel is the breakfast, nothing hot, can't toast your bread and not even cheese with the ham, plus tinned fruit, all this said I would go back as great little hotel well priced and cosy!
