“Charming and well worth it”
Reviewed 19 February 2013

The place is quietly situated in a village right in the centre of the Chamonix valley, extremely well located for the slopes. The staff are lovely, the breakfast plentiful and the room was very cozy. The only caveats are that you need to have snow tyres to make it up safely to the hotel in the snow (which our rental car wasn't equipped with) and the Internet access was spotty (but the owner says they are upgrading it). I'd come back if we return to Chamonix.

Stayed February 2013, travelled with family

Lovely place, very quiet, nice terrace with great views BUT my room was not bigger than a broom cupboard and the bathroom smaller than the one I got onboard on a ship (EasyCruise). At dinner time strong smells of food coming from the kitchen or dining room downstairs invaded my room. The noise during the night was very disturbing, I could hear people talking, coughing, walking… The icing on the cake was that my toilet was equipped with a waste disposal unit operated by a very loud engine, each time I flushed

If you are like my friends and I, and are looking for an alternative to the Swiss and French ski resorts that mandate 7 nights lodging in order to enjoy their towns, you are liking finding this hotel just outside of Chamonix in Le Lavancher. We were looking for a simple one night stay, and we got that w/ Hotel Beau Soleil. The upsides are that it is located very close to both Chamonix and the slopes that make up Chamonix, most notably Les Grands Montets.

This is not a place to stay for nightlife, or for a quality/luxurious sleep. It's a place to shack up for 8 hours in between sessions on the world class slopes. It is a VERY quiet village 10 minute from Chamonix and 10 minutes from Argentiere. We drove down to Argentiere during the France-Germany Olympic Curling match and had quite a good time- the bars are all very small, but the people friendly and beers cold.

The room we got was the four-bedroom, and the beds were very small (i'm 6'1" and had to lay sideways and a bit curled up to fit. Beds were hard, pillows super soft, but hey, I was waking up at 0730 to make it into town for a croissant and then on the mtn for first lift. The shower was a typical European shower where after 5 seconds in you have utterly soaked the entire floor and all towels. I would recommend this primarily for ski bums who want to save a little money (though not a lot because it was 200 euro a night. Perhaps the smaller rooms had more charm, but I cant speak for those.

A charming B&B with great views of Mt. Blanc and other peaks from the south side. Breakfast quite good, but not cooked. Some rooms have only hand held showers.

  • Liked — nice rooms, great balcony views
