Situated in the centre of Chamonix and facing the Mont Blanc this 3-star hotel has a sporty yet refined atmosphere mixed with friendliness, mountain charm and home comforts.

Built in 1890, it is one of the historical establishments of the valley and it has remained as a favourite meeting point of a clientèle from all over the world.

The interior hotel has a modern, cosmopolitan feel, with stylish, comfortable furnishings. The staff are known for their friendliness and speak several languages, mainly English, French and Swedish. 

The hotel has 50 single (12m2) or triple (25m2) rooms, all uniquely styled. Most of them offer a view over the massive of Mont Blanc or the Aiguilles Rouges and some also include balconies where you can sit in private enjoying the scenery. All rooms feature satellite TV, direct telephone lines and WiFi access so you can easily stay in touch with family and friends at home. They can accommodate from 1 to 5 people.

There is also a conference room with meeting facilities for up to 38 persons. They offer customised packages and the room can be booked for half or a full day, including a morning and/or afternoon break with coffee, tea, fruit and cakes. There is also the possibility of organising multi-day seminars with one or more nights at the hotel, even with all meals included.

For access to the ski slopes, you can make use of the free shuttle service that stops in front of the hotel. The local train station is also just opposite and runs the length of the valley giving you easy access to Grands Montets and Vallorcine ski areas as well as all the local villages.

The Neighbourhood

Situated right by the Chamonix main train station, the hotel is well located for connecting transport. The Avenue Michel Croz is also one of the best streets in town for apres-ski action, boutique shopping and of course good food.

The Bar

Chambre Neuf is THE most popular Apres Ski bar in Chamonix and they have a live band playing Sunday to Friday from 17:30 to 19:30. Therefore, if you want to have an early night, it is recommended that you request one of the rooms higher up. As with all good bars, they have a wide selection of beverages as well as a great cocktail menu. In the summer, the terrace is the perfect outdoor space to enjoy an afternoon or evening drink.

The Restaurant

The hotel's restaurant is the Chambre Neuf Brasserie which offers fantastic international cuisine at reasonable prices. Their menu is regularly updated and generally includes a good mix of classic dishes such as Thai Chicken, Moules and Schnitzel as well as staples such as BBQ ribs and burgers (read our review).  In the summer, meals are served within the rustic Alpine bar and on the shady terrace which has views of Mont Blanc. In the winter months, the hotel opens up its stylish dining room to allow the bar area to be taken over for Apres-Ski. 

The restaurant serves breakfast (07:00-10:00), lunch (12:00-15:00) and dinner (19:00-22:00) daily, and B&B and half-board rates are available.

What else to book

Transfers

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

Parking

There is limited on-site parking, please enquire at the hotel regarding space in advance of your visit.

Visitor comments

  • "My husband & I drove to Italy to spend Christmas & stayed in Chamonix on the way back home for one night so that we could visit the Ice Cave at the Glacier. The hotel was in an excellent location both for the tram up to the Ice Cave (just across the road & over a bridge) & for the bars, restaurants & shops in Chamonix. The beds were incredibly comfortable & the room was cosy. The music in the bar downstairs was quite noisy but our room was at the top of the hotel & once in our room we couldn't hear a thing & had an excellent nights sleep. We didn't have breakfast as we wanted to get an early start on our drive back down to Calais but we did take a peek & it looked good with plenty of choice both hot & cold. The reception staff were excellent, very friendly & helpful."  - Trip Advisor
  • "I hosted a visit for 40 travellers from our local running club, to compete in the Mont Blanc Marathon event in June 2014. To keep costs down, there was room sharing by many of us, including some in triple or quad rooms. The rooms were comfortable, there was good food available, the bar has a great atmosphere, and it is a perfect location near the station. The assistance in planning the visit before we arrived, that started many months before our visit, was also excellent and very helpful. The best thing about the hotel is the friendliness of the staff - they were always keen to help, at all times." - Trip Advisor
  • "We stayed 2 nights and can't fault the hotel. Our room was huge, the staff were extremely friendly, the location was perfect for lifts/buses/restaurants etc. and the hotel bar had the best live music in Chamonix."  - Trip Advisor
