This hotel was great. So cute, warm, loved all the decorations. The staff was super helpful & sweet. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a large suite on the lower level that had its own exit straight outside. It was an enormous space with a gorgeous little bathroom & huge tub. Breakfast was really nice in the morning. There's a comfy relaxing reading area I enjoyed sitting in with a computer/Internet. Location of hotel is very quiet yet 1 street from the main strip of shops & restaurants. Loved it & would definitely go back to it.

Room Tip: The lower floor suites are massive & isolated

A design hotel with nice features such as jacuzzi and sauna. Afternoon tea served every day, perfect after a day of skiing.
Our room was very small (not a surprise as we could see that when we booked) but it worked very well as there was ample space for storing everyday things as well as many outlets for charging phones etc.
Another nice feature was the ski-boots room where you could store ski-boots and dry them (a dryer/heater available). And you don't need to take up space in the room for the boots.
In all there was nothing to complain about and the friendliness of the staff was excellent.

This was a really nice small hotel. Room was small but very nicely finished. The staff were always very friendly and helpful. We very much enjoyed the spa and sauna after being out in the cold. Free wifi in the room also, as it should be. Would stay there again.

We've just returned from a long weekend in Chamonix and were so glad we chose Hotel Faucigny as our hotel. The boutiquey feel of the hotel hits you as soon as you catch a glimpse of the building and enter the reception. The welcome was extremely warm and all ready prepared for our arrival. The location is as good as you could ask for, it's right in the centre of the town for the restaurants, bars and shops and just around the corner was a button lift to get you onto the slopes.

Throughout our stay the services from the staff was the best I've ever received in any hotel I've stayed at, nothing was too much effort and there were always suggestions to any subject we were asking about.

The large jacuzzi in the basement was the perfect tonic after a days skiing.....following the lovely cakes, teas and hot chocolate welcoming you in from the cold!

The only reason this hotel hasn't got 5 stars is the size of the rooms but please don't let this detract you from staying at this truly fantastic hotel, we literally just slept and showered in them....what more do you need them for on a skiing packed weekend.

Thank you to our hosts, we will DEFINITELY return if we come back to Chamonix.

We stayed at Le Faucigny for one night on Jan 2nd, 2013, together with my husband and my 7 year old son. The hotel is located very centrally in Chamonix, few meters walking from the pedestrian area. They have 7 parking places, which were all taken, so we had to park in the 2 min walking distance public parking (8 Euros for the night).
The building is old and charming, the interiors are modern style decoration and pretty new, I loved it. We had a second (top) floor room with only roof window, nicely decorated, but a bit small if we would have had to stay longer. Complimentary sweets and all necessary towels, etc were there, perfectly arranged to welcome us. Mind that there is no elevators, but very welcoming girls at the reception offering to bring your luggage.
Spa with sauna and bubble bath is nice and clean, with extended opening times and access allowed to kids.
Breakfast really good, even if a bit expensive (12 Euros each for adults, 6 for kids). No restaurant in the hotel.
I would highly recommend the hotel for short staying, to enjoy Chamonix life and wonderful sight.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with view on the Mont Blanc!

We stayed for four nights and had an awesome time. This hotel is by far the cleanest and one the loveliest places I've stayed at.

Rooms: super clean, small.
Bed: clean and comfortable.
Bath: clean with nice water pressure (shower stall).
Staff: in simple terms, know how to host
Internet: believe hotel has a 5mbps line, but during rush hour (5-8pm) it could get slow. No signal issues.

Notes: You get the sense that the hotels wants you to think you're staying at a good friend's place.

Room Tip: This is an old building, so the hallways and the rooms are small, but quaint.

We booked 10 rooms for our marriage and the treatment received was perfect. The rooms were cozy, comfortable and well designed. It didn't seem to be in a three stars hotel but in a highest rate one. Take the breakfast!
I will stay here again.
