Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    Location 9.82 /10

    Located at the heart of the town, just metres from the church and the tourist information office, the Faucigny is in a great location. There is a large range of restaurants, bars and shops all within walking distance. The train station is just 450m away, while the Plan-Praz and Brévent cable cars are just 500m away (3 min on foot if you cut through the Club Med).

    Accommodation 7.25 /10

    Looking at the building, it is obvious that it was a challenge to construct (28 guest rooms located on 3 levels). The maze of hallways bears witness to this, not to mention the shapes and dimensions of some of the rooms. The Faucigny offers 4 room categories: single, standard, superior and family. The main difference between them is their size. Depending on the room, guests will have a view of either Mont Blanc or the Brévent or... the car park. And in many of them, the only window is a skylight.

    However, they are all just as cosy and pleasant as the communal areas. The decor is sober but well thought out, and we especially liked the light & delight light fixtures. All of the facilities you would expect from a 3 star hotel are here.

    The bathrooms are as varied as the guest rooms. Depending on the configuration of where they are found, they either have a shower or a bathtub and sometimes both, even in the single rooms, as well as one or two wash basins. And here again their quirky charm comes from their need for functionality.

    Overview 8.35 /10

    The hotel's reception sets the tone as soon as you walk in. Leslie Gauthier, the decorator in charge of the Faucigny, has mastered the art of contemporary cosiness: wooden flooring, wool-covered tiles on the walls, armchairs and cushions, etc., it is all very pleasant. Guests receive a warm welcome and quickly feel at home here. The breakfast room is right next to the lobby and offers the same ambiance. We really liked the wall with the massive bookcase and the fireplace area where guests can settle in and relax on those days when the snow falls too heavily to go skiing.

    In the summer, it is possible to enjoy the part of the garden that is full of flowers. These are all the communal areas, unless you also include the ski-room (offering direct access outside) and the spa.

    Food and drink

    In a lovely room that is used as a lounge area the rest of the day, breakfast is served in the form of a copious buffet, offering hot and cold sweet and savoury choices. Freshly squeezed fruit juice. Very good. The establishment's little extra is to offer a snack in the afternoons between 4pm and 6pm: hot beverages, orange juice and cakes.

      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.

      • Location 9.07

      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.

      Just a stone's throw from the centre of Chamonix, the Auberge du Manoir is perfect for holidaymakers seeking tranquillity. This discreet spot, with very comfortable guest rooms and a peaceful atmosphere, is the perfect place to go if you are looking to be pampered. The only thing that disturbs the peace and quiet here is the proximity to a relatively busy road.
