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.

Visitor comments

  • "We stayed here on the first and last night of our Mont Blanc challenge. The hotel was clean and tidy if not a little quaint. The rooms were ample and well apportioned even with all our climbing gear. Breakfasts were plentiful, nourishing and tasty - the packed meals we received were also very good. Friendly staff, good location. A good place to stay." - Trip Advisor
  • "This hotel is in a great location, and is a very good value, considering the prices in Chamonix, but breakfast isn't the greatest. Right in the middle of town. The staff is very friendly, including the little dog who lives in the lobby. Recommended." - Trip Advisor
  • "I had a lovely stay the staff were very pleasant, helpful and happy to help with recommending places to ski, where to catch the bus, where to eat etc. Lovely clean, comfy modern hotel that's tastefully decorated in a great location." - Trip Advisor
