“New kid on the block”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

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.

I really liked this place. The location couldn't be better - right next to the cable car station to the Aguille du Midi, and walking distance from everywhere. The views from our room were stunning and we were very comfortable in this modern hotel. The staff were helpful and dealt with our enquiries efficiently. We used the hotel car park which was fine. This is a very good choice to spend a few days in Chamonix.

Very friendly and professional staff topped off an excellent hotel experience. Great value and attractive and immaculate room, lobby and spa. Only minor comment is there could be more light in rooms - especially for cloudy days.
Overall - Keep up the good work!!

We LOVED staying at the Hotel l'Heliopic! They had beautiful views, spacious rooms, and helpful staff. Our kids loved it as well! MORE importantly, the service - I had accidently left my wedding ring in the room. We did not have the means to contact the hotel right away and were unable to return to the hotel at that point. When we were getting the information to contact them, our phone rang. They were calling about my ring. We received it shortly after arriving back home from our vacation! THAT is excellent service!

Room Tip: We LOVED the room with the bunk beds for the kids. The room facing Mont Blanc had a great balcony to...

Lovely hotel and great central location for skiing.

Rooms are very spacious and well decorated.

Didn't use the restaurant whilst we were so cannot comment but the adjoining shop sold lovely snacks, and the bar was well stocked.

Nice pool, albeit a little cold, and the spa area was lovely.

A lovely bright modern hotel with excellent spa facilities. The food in the restaurant is very good and good value for half board. Rooms good, very comfortable. We had a view of Mont Blanc. Location quiet. Would highly recommend this hotel. the epicure next door was great for purchasing a sandwich every morning before setting off on our walk. Hotel also convenient to the bus stop.

The hotel is located in a ideal location at the bottom end of town. It's very easy to get there by car and has a secure underground car park. The foyer of the hotel is very relaxed a great place to just sit and unwind, the spa is amazing and very peaceful, it has a multitude of different rooms and the relaxing egg chair area is perfect to sit and relax.

We stayed in room 406 it was in the attic and hugue, lots of space however the bathroom is quite resticted due to the pitch of the roof but done let this put you off as the size of the room more than makes up for this.

Would highly recommend this hotel if your staying in Cham.
