Amy Adejokun Section editor

It may be setback from the centre of Chamonix and have very simple guest rooms, but La Chaumière still has plenty of selling points. The communal areas, renovated in 2012 by the new owner, are delightful and the welcome here is one of the warmest around. A great hotel for fans of the mountains who aren't too demanding when it comes to room comfort.

    Location 5.0 /10

    La Chaumière is located in the village of Les Pècles, about a mile southeast of Chamonix' centre (a 15 minute walk). However, the bus stop 100m from the hotel and the Les Moussoux train station (the train only stops if there are passengers) 150m away provide easy access to town. It is also easy to find parking near the hotel in summer, which is certainly not the case in Chamonix.

    Accommodation 5.80 /10

    The 23 guest rooms at La Chaumière divided among two floors (with no lift) offer simple comfort. Single, double, triple and quadruple rooms are all available. The decor and furniture are minimalist and the room size varies, but overall they are very pleasant. No two rooms are alike, and some are loft rooms. The big shortcoming is the bathrooms; in five of the rooms the bathroom is a 1m² plastic shower/toilet/wash basin unit, while the others are small bathrooms with showers. The rooms on one side (the road side) have a view of Mont Blanc and the Bossons Glacier, while the rooms on the garden side look out over the Brévent and the Aiguilles Rouges. There is free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, but there is no television in the guest rooms. There is also a free safe at reception.

    Overview 7.10 /10

    The La Chaumière hotel, located in a long building on the roadside, was taken over by a Finnish couple in spring 2012. While the outside might not be very attractive, there is a pleasant surprise awaiting inside the hotel. The new owners have entirely redecorated the ground floor (lobby, bar, lounge and restaurant), and we have to say we like it. Red, white and grey are now the predominant colours in a Scandinavian-inspired setting. The mix between soft fabrics, antique objects hung on the walls - including several pairs of skis -, and modern furniture gives it a cosy feel that makes you want to settle down for a chat after a long day of hiking.

    Food and drink 6.90 /10

    The dining room is equally as charming as the lounge bar. The room is bright, comfortable and carefully decorated, with a large fireplace. Breakfast and dinner are served here as a buffet. The wide variety of dishes are made from fresh products from the market. La Chaumière proposes half-board packages.

    To know

    In both summer and winter, La Chaumière's main clientèle base is hikers. The hotel's previous owner was a mountain guide who built up a network of colleagues and clients.

    The hotel works with tour operators specialised in hiking, particularly with guests from Germany and New Zealander in the summer.

      A Relais & Châteaux institution in Chamonix, the Hameau Albert 1er remains the upscale reference for accommodation at the foot of Mont Blanc. The restaurants, the spa, the rooms...everything is up to par for the cosmopolitan clientèle attracted to this chic but laidback ambiance. Only the site itself, alongside the railway track, isn't quite up to scratch.

      A chalet offering an exceptional view of Mont Blanc, the Auberge du Bois Prin has recently been awarded 5 stars and will delight those who like their privacy, tranquillity and fine food. You won't find ostentatious luxury or an endless number of facilities here, just comfort and peace and quiet.

      There's a refined atmosphere to this modern and cosy hotel. In terms of facilities, the Best Western Le Morgane is one of the most comprehensive hotels in Chamonix with its spa and gourmet restaurant. It's only fans of traditional alpine decor who won't find everything to their liking.

      The Grand Hotel des Alpes has been one of the historic places in Chamonix since 1840. We were completely won over by its central location, warm welcome, grand lounges, newly renovated guest rooms and amenities. Both a distinguished and friendly hotel.

      With 107 guest rooms, Les Aiglons Resort & Spa is one of the big establishments in Chamonix. Its spa and heated outdoor swimming pool are particularly enjoyable. A modern, comfortable hotel with very good facilities but sorely lacking in charm.

      Both standardised but faithful to the spirit of an alpine resort, the Prieuré is a large 91 guest room establishment. It may be functional but the decor and layout of the areas give it a touch of warmth. Unfortunately, it is located very close to the road.

      This is the biggest hotel in Chamonix, both in terms of the size of the building and the number of guest rooms. The Alpina is a functional hotel where the guest rooms and panoramic restaurant afford a fantastic view of the town and Mont Blanc. It's a shame, though, that the establishment as a whole is somewhat lacking in character.

      • Location 9.82

      Transformed in 2011 from a 2 to a 3 star establishment, the Faucigny is a charming spot in the centre of Chamonix. The laidback ambiance and the Scandinavian-style decor make for a cosy hotel where a feeling of well-being resonates. The only thing we were disappointed with was the size of the rooms, which aren't always exactly functional.
