Pierre & Vacances Residence La Riviere - Aiglons

Reviewed 24 February 2014

This hotel was much much better thahn I'd have thought. Small and compact but with useful amenities and a great location. Four grown men shared an apartment for a week and we survived well. Its clean and its functional and it serves your purpose well. The locker room for ski's and poles is a great benefit. Bus stops are dead handy which is useful when walking in ski boots!! I'd stay here again.

We stayed in the La Riviere apartments last year and were impressed so stayed here again this year and were impressed again. They're by no means luxurious but are great if you're going for the snow and just want somewhere clean and comfortable to stay. They're located in an area with plenty of shops, a 2 minute walk from the main street, at the main Chamonix Sud SkiBus stop and a 2 min walk from the Aiguille du Midi gondola. There is also a free heated private ski locker on the ground floor.

I was a bit nervous booking the first time as there were very mixed reports here but I wonder now if it's the difference between the main La Rivière building (where reception is) and the Les Aiglons building. We stayed in the Les Aiglons each time and found both apartments quiet, spacious with comfortable beds but we had friends rent one in La Rivière this year and not be so impressed. So my recommendation would be to rent one of their "Apartment 2 bedrooms for 6/7 people(In the Les Aiglons building) 55sqm" apartments which come with a small room with a single bunk bed in it (perfectly suitable for 6' males to sleep in), a room with a double bed and up to three beds (two of them perfect for adults) in the main living area from converting the sofas.

My only complaint is that the bath/shower is dreadfully designed so a few people having showers in a row will lead to a river of water running out the bathroom door, hardly a major issue though!

Room Tip: I'd suggest the Les Aiglons building as the rooms are bigger and sound like they are in better c...

Good location close to transport links, and amenities.
Helpful staff.
Very clean room.
Let down by old cooking utensils and rock solid bed.
But overall for the price paid great value comparatively to other apartments.

Managed to fill the apartment to its maximum capacity (5 people). Felt rather cosy but everyone had a bed to sleep in and there was enough room for everyone to move around in. The bootroom is easy to access and reasonably secure (code to get in and then a key for the lockers) although the lockers were pretty small - 2 snowboards and 3 sets of skis fit in with some careful arranging). Right next to the bus stop that leads to pretty much every stop in the Chamonix area, although the bus rides at the end of the day can be very cramped and slow. There's also a pizzeria just down the road (Hoppiza I think) which was delicious and a spar and skiset a few minutes walk away. The only criticisms of the apartment are that the dishwasher leaked a bit and the kitchennette was tiny.

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
