“Super value in Chamonix”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

Chamonix has a lot going for it as an outdoor holiday destination - and the prices generally reflect this. But these apartments and studios are at least a factor of two cheaper than any equivalent accommodation in the town. I paid about £200 for a week in a studio that could, potentially, sleep a family of four - where would you get that in the UK? My three younger colleagues stayed in a two-bedroom apartment for £260 for a week. Yes, the accommodation is fairly basic (although there's a dishwasher): you have to make up your own beds and you have to pay for extras such as towels, parking, and wifi, but it's very clean, fairly comfortable (as long as you're not expecting luxury), and centrally placed in the town. I thought it was an excellent all round choice and plan to stay there again one day. The staff were friendly and helpful, especially the lovely young lady in reception who helped me on Friday afternoon.

The accommodation is well located and the staff are extremely professional and friendly. But the rooms suffer from a lot of traffic noise (and some late night shouting from the street). Even if you do find a quieter room, you won't sleep. The double-bed id an ingenious sofa bed. its springs are uncomfortable and extremely noisy. More noisy than my snoring, so I'm reliably informed.

Dear Keith B.,

We thank you for having taken time to write down your opinion concerning your stay in our residence La Rivière and regret not having been able to bring you complete satisfaction.

Chamonix being more a town than a mountain resort and our residence being situated in a lively area, our residents can be bothered by the sound muisances generated by the activity and attendance of Chamonix. However, the location of our residence allows our customers to enjoy the closeness of shops and the various leisure activities proposed by the town.

Concerning the quality of our bedding, please be assured that further to the various comments, finding a solution to this matter is one of our current priorities.

Though, my staff and I hope to see you again in our residence.

Best regards,
Karine Grospellier

Poor quality bedding, poor quality kitchen equipment but good sizes sunny balcony and good sized rooms. the bedding was old and we had to purchase more for ourselves as reception would not replace anything. Maintenance men promised to provide missing kitchen utensils and chipped dishes but then didn't turn up with them

I have stayed many times at this residence and found it clean, comfortable, good value and very convenient for the Aiguille du Midi cable car. The staff have always been very friendly and a big help in making bookings at places like refuges as my French isn't so great. The new Carrefour supermarket is only a few minutes walk and makes shopping for groceries much easier than the long walk through town.

Very nicely appointed and well maintained apartment, apart from no kettle in kitchen. Noisy in early morning as on first floor above roundabout, but stunning views from balcony of Aiguille de Midi cablecar.

Opening times inconvenient, towels not supplied( who in their right mind does that to weary travelers?) unless you go downstairs again & pay 6€ per person! We desperately said ok, went to dinner, came back & there were no towels!! Bad beds & then u have to clean the room or be charged again.... they seriously need to rethink their business model it's disappointing & frustrating ESP. When hikers come there after the TmB, already exhausted & ready for a shower.
It's a good walk outside the main happening area, why bother?

Price was low, but I expected to get towels! Is the first time this happens to me!
Reception opened only morning and evenings, but staff friendly, even speaking English some of them. Clean, very small apartment with two bunk-beds and one uncomfortable sofa bed; yes is a vacation residence and you have to clean the room, but this was expected. Responsive staff but the light reparation lasted half a day only.
Extra season visit with an empty house you may expect a free upgrade, but apparently they don’t seam to give incentives for repeated business with you.
