It is refreshing to see new hotels in Chamonix, this really helps other hotels to stay competitive. Only competitiion will bring excellence in the service industry.
Hotel l'Heliopic is located right next to the Aigulle de Midi gondola. You have to access the hotel from the route outside and there is a Euro$10 charge to parking your car in the underground garage (which is reasonable in winter but not so in summer). We are spending 1 night in Chamonix to visit old friends and chose this because of its convenient location.
The staff are young and energetic. We were happy to see our room in a sleep modern design (sorry i dont like floral or savoyard pattern in my hotel beddings). The only thing that it is lacking is an refridgerator. There is a spa but we did not have a chance to use it. The bar in the lobby is comfortable but the lounging chairs are definitely too low. (I wonder how people will sit down and get up after a full day of skiing).
Overall, it is not a luxury hotel as the price also reflects that. It is a functional hotel (half board available) and it is centrally located in Chamonix. We would consider to stay here for our ski trip next time.
