Chamonix Christmas

Booked a last minute stay in Chamonix just after New Year's, and was scrambling to find a last minute hotel. Called the hotel directly after finding them on the internet, and was able to get 3 nights in a standard room.

Drove to the hotel from Lyon, and was easy to find. Hotel is a short 5-10 minute walk outside the very centre of Chamonix (very close to train station), but still very accessible. Hotel has a parking lot right out front if you have a car.

Very pleasant and cosy welcoming area. Our check-in-agent was quite unfriendly, and not really the least bit interested in providing any sort of information or assistance, but not a huge deal because we didn’t need any help at the time. The next morning, we inquired about local directions, skiing, etc, and the other staff bent over backwards to help in any way they could.

Our room was quite tiny (1 king size bed), and for two people with ski clothes, was a bit tight navigating around. Had a small balcony, but was a bit cold to enjoy that. Bathroom was very nice, modern, and despite the overall size of the room, it was comfortable, clean, and was a nice welcoming room after long days outside on the slopes. Also, heat appeared to be centrally controlled, and it got very warm in the room at some points. Cracked the door open a bit to cool things down though, which made it ok.

Overall a nice stay, would consider staying there again if I go back, especially as I felt the price was good compared to other properties, and overall quality was nice.
