Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Great apartment, great views
We wrapped up a family trip to France in June 2019 with three nights at the Astor, and it was our favorite place to stay of the whole trip. The owners are responsive and provided excellent information to access the apartment, which was very helpful since we had a late arrival into Chamonix. The apartment is cheery, clean, comfortable and quiet. It fit our needs perfectly. We ate nearly every meal on the lovely balcony, taking in the beautiful view. It’s well located, close to downtown, but not too close. We didn’t need a car as we explored Chamonix. As an added bonus the property has an underground secured garage box (French style tight) for you average sized car.. We recommend the Astor for anyone who is planning a trip to Chamonix.

PERFECT!
The Astor is a wonderful 1st floor appartment just a couple of minutes walk from the centre of Chamonix. It is nice & quiet but close enough to everything you could possibly need. It has stunning views of the mountains from every window & both balcony's. The appartment was equipped with everything we needed and was spacious enough for a family of 4. We had a wonderful time in Chamonix and will definitely be back and will hope to stay here again.

Nice but lacked service
Nice place on a noisy street but they only had a half a roll toilet paper for 4 adults for 3 nights, no kitchen towels or paper towels, no trash bags. I left a message for these provisions needed and it took 2 days to receive only the tp was brought. A smelly mop was left in the bathroom too. They need a new service! Owners leave a nice small bottle of wine but also left a 2 week expired creamer for the coffee...like I said no attention to details.

Hi Ginger, We are happy to hear that you thought our apartment was nice but obviously disappointed with regards some of your other points! There are certainly cars going up and down our street but as we are in a very quiet sector of Chamonix we are surprised you found it noisy as there is very little foot fall. We do usually leave 2 toilet rolls in order to get guests through the initial period of their rental, as well as bags for the bins, so please accept our apologies for this not being the case. Consumable items such as these are not usually provided to last the entire stay period by the large majority of self catering apartments in Europe, unlike in hotels. I understand their was a tea towel provided, but as a matter of course we don't leave provide paper towels. Thanks for mentioning the bottle of wine that we leave as part of a welcome pack, along with coffee, tea, tissues, biscuits etc, it is always well received. We'll definitely remove any out of date creamer from the pack though, so thanks for flagging that up! Best regards, David & Laura

Autumn in Chamonix
Location was ideal - less than 5 min walk to centre and close to main train station, Mer de Glacé and Aquille de midi cable car. Apartment had everything you would need with beautiful views.

Perfect!
We have just spent a week in Chamonix and found the apartment to he perfect! We are a family of 5 and we were quite comfortable (my daughter found the sofa bed to be very comfortable) The Astor was very well equipped with everything we needed including a few things we didn't think we needed! However, the best thing was the location - just a 5 minute walk to the town centre, the L'Aguille due midi cable car, and a couple of good supermarkets. We were close enough to everything but not so close to be disturbed by bars and restaurants. Our 3 teenagers are very active and there was plenty to do - lots of mountain walks, white water rafting (we can recommend Evolution in the town) mountain biking and even a luge to try for fun. Thank you for making our stay so easy and memorable!

Great apartment
Great apartment, good amount of space and well appointed. Lovely views from the sunny balcony. Location excellent with both town and the ski bus just a short walk away. Would definitely recommend and I plan to go back.

Cosy Accommodation
Cosy accommodation was perhaps a little too cosy for a family of five - not so much bedding (pletny) but just the space itself and the way he doors opened into the space. Having said that, the apartment is close to everything you need - literally across the road from the departure point for the glacier tour - and it's clean and tidy with great views.

Très beau logement
Un logement très propre. Très bien équipé ( lave vaisselle et lave linge) et très bien situé ( 500 m du CV). Un petit bémol pour la literie.

Great location, clean, cosy and quiet!
We stayed here in Feb 2016 for 4 nights (4 guys). We had never been to Chamonix before so we were just taking a chance on the location of the apartment but it turned out great. The apartment was perfect for what we needed. The bunk beds were big enough to accommodate grown ups (the two of us who slept in them are over 6 ft) and the bedding was very comfortable. The apartment was very clean and had everything you could need and it was very cosy with the underfloor heating. The living area was very comfortable for just relaxing in and there was very little noise from traffic outside as you are far enough away from the hussle and bussle of the town and the main roads. Less than a five minute walk away are the bars and shops so the location is great. Snostation and the owners were also very helpful and contacted us back almost instantaneously when we were looking for advice on ski-rental, how to get to the slopes etc. If I was to head back to Chamonix I would definitely stay here again.

About the neighbourhood
The Astor is located in a quiet sector of Chamonix, 5 mins walk away from the centre and all the amenities you could possibly wish for in order to have a great holiday!
Getting around
The local town bus, 'Le Mulet' stops right outside our apartment block and takes a circular route around the town in 20 mins. The ski buses for travelling throughout the valley are reliable and frequent. Please see our website for links to the relevant timetables. The 2 main bus stops are approximately 5/6 mins walk (plus maybe 2 mins in ski boots!). The Montenvers Train Station is 3 mins walk from the Astor. Take this to see the incredible Mer de Glace. The Aiguille du Midi is 5 mins walk from the Astor. Take this to look out across the Mont Blanc range, ski the Vallee Blanche or start your ski tour from here!
Access
Car not needed
How to get there
Geneva airport is 1 hour away: Rental car - Often the cheapest option if there are 2 or more people in your party. Collect your car at the airport and drive directly to Chamonix on the motorway, which is easy even in winter - extenuating conditions excluded! Airport transfer - The cheapest and quickest option if you are travelling alone and great if you just want to relax. There are a range of local companies available; Alpybus and EasyBus being our favourites. Always book in advance for the best deal and to confirm times of transfers! Ferry: It takes 8.5 hours of motorway driving if you land in Calais. The drive is easy and scenic but you have to pay the tolls in addition to your normal running costs so please account for these.
