We stayed at the Residence after reading the reviews, and were a bit worried. We needn't have been, it was clean, recently renovated, with a dishwasher, microwave, big fridge, two rings, plenty of crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils. Comfy sofa bed. What more do you want? It was 2 mins from the Ski bus stop and the "Chamonix Sud" pedestrian area with bars, shops etc and a whole 5 min walk to the main town centre.
You do need to provide your own towels, (or rent from reception) kettles aren't provided ( I have never been anywhere in France where they are - they are a British thing) and you can buy a cleaning kit from reception, as you need to clean the appartment at the end of the stay (or take a packet of Flash wipes and some Fairy liquid and a sponge!) hoovers provided.
There was a ski locker room.
The only thing I would say was if you had 4 people in the studio you only got 1 blanket and pillow each, (and 2 sheets) so you might want to consider an extra one or a sleeping bag, and if you like lots of pillows the same.
