We stayed at du Louvre mid February 2012 for a skiing holiday. The hotel seemed very well located offering good value for money.
Location: great central location 2min away from the Tourist Information office and most bus stops, also next to a large supermarket. Brevent lifts are a short walk.
Rooms: Very clean renovated rooms, immaculate room service. Beds are small singles but provide excellent support. Very basic furnishing, no tea / coffee facilities. Adjustable radiators. There are no bars, receptions for socialising etc. Terrible views of the mountains
Breakfast: Probably my worst hotel breakfast experience ever - basic options for food and beverages, not very well stocked either. Service was very poor and slow. Seemed overpriced even for 9euro. Better spend that at the supermarket or delis next door.
Service / Information: Very low standards of service, no skiing / piste information, no reception after 8-9pm, difficult to find a hairdryer for the girls, no support when we lost a mobile phone.
Overall: Chamonix is an amazing place for holidays, skiing or not. Not one of the cheapest destinations, so if you are looking for a great experience spend a bit extra for a proper hotel.More
