This is a cosy and welcoming traditional Savoyard hotel in the heart of Chamonix, on the banks of the river and close to the Savoy and Brevent ski areas, making it ideal for those that want both easy access to the resort as well as the mountain.

All their charming rooms are decorated in the established mountain style and there is a warm and cosy sitting room downstairs with an open fire place.  The hotel also has its own pool table to keep you entertained on quiet nights in.

During the summer months you can enjoy their charmingly French terrace on the river where you can watch those enjoying the Chamonix rafting experience whiz by.

You can also take advantage of their wellbeing area, which includes a indoor climbing wall, fitness area and sauna. So you can stay active no matter what the weather outside.

The Restaurant

The hotel does not include a restaurant but breakfast is provided, often as part of your package.

What else to book


You’ll need to book your own transfers, when staying here. Your main options are shared or private transfers, but consider whether you would prefer a door-to-door service or a (generally cheaper) “communal” drop-off point at your destination.

Book Transfers

Ski Hire

You’ll need to book your own ski hire, when staying here. There are many choices for hiring equipment. Generally, you’re best off choosing somewhere close for ease of access, & less far to carry your kit, easier to make changes, and quicker to return and pay at the end. Nevertheless, many suppliers will deliver and some snow-front rental stores offer ski lockers, so it’s worth checking out all the options. 

Book Ski Hire

Lifts & Passes

You’ll need to buy your own lift pass, when staying here. Lift passes can be booked online or bought in resort on arrival. There are many types of pass available, suited to different levels, length of stay and budget. It’s worth reading up on the options to get the most from your lift pass in summer & winter.

Instructors & Lessons

When staying here, you’ll need to book  your own ski or snowboard lessons. Tuition is strongly recommended for complete beginners and is always a good idea whatever your level to perfect your technique. Group lessons are a great way for children to learn with their peers whilst giving you some free time on the slopes. Groups are also a generally cheaper option for adults, however, with a private instructor you’ll have undivided attention and be able to progress at your own pace.

Book Ski School

Guides & Tours

When staying here, you’ll need to book your own Guides & Tours, which are a great way to discover Chamonix whilst doing a number of fun activities. During the winter, if you are keen to go off-piste, booking a High Mountain Guide is strongly recommended. Not only do they know the best local spots, these highly trained and experienced individuals are very familiar with the surroundings and can provide loads of insights you won’t get by yourself, as well as helping to ensure your safety.

Book a Guide/Tour

Families & Kids

You’ll need to book your own childcare, when staying here. There is a great choice of childcare options in Chamonix from full-time nanny services to the odd night of babysitting. In addition, during the winter season, many of the ski-schools operate creche services. Booking in advance is always recommended and strongly advised for the school holiday periods.

There is free exterior parking available at front of the hotel.


Visitor comments

  • "Walked in and immediately felt at home. The front desk staff was consistently kind and helpful. Everyone of them. Great breakfast in the morning and a wonderful little bar and plenty of cozy seating areas on the main floor. Beautiful views from the rooms and this hotel is also located along the river. Nicely located 2 minutes from the busy hub, which makes it even nicer. Fancy it isn't but welcoming and comfortable it is. Look forward to coming back." - Trip Advisor
  • "In Chamonix, one of the things you want is a good location, this hotel is great, very central but not in a noisy location. The staff were lovely, always helpful. Breakfast choice was good and free afternoon tea/coffee with biscuits is a nice touch too. Our room was good size, bed comfy. The hotel has 6 pedal cycles, you can borrow them at no cost (they book them to your room with a 100 Euro deposit if you fail to return them). They come with a frame lock, a security chain and a helmet. We cycled around the area for a couple of hours and thoroughly enjoyed it. If we return to Chamonix again, we will definitely stay here. I would have no hesitation in recommending this place. What you get is a nice hotel, where you feel comfortable walking in dressed in your boots and walking kit after a full day in the mountain. This is NOT a boutique hotel, it is not 5* luxury, it is a really nice, clean and friendly establishment for people looking for somewhere central in the lovely town of Chamonix." - Trip Advisor
  • "Booked on line last minute and was so pleased we picked this hotel. Easy to find and very affordable. They so very kindly gave us an upgrade and we had a terrific room with a sensational view. The bedroom extremely comfortable and the breakfast was delicious and not expensive. Secure on site parking which is a bonus for us. Right in the town and not far to the cable car." - Trip Advisor
