My only criticism is that the tiles and grout in the bathroom were dirty. The shower curtain was changed on the second day. The bathroom door didn't close properly affecting the privacy. Otherwise it was an excellent hotel and the staff were fabulous.

Our first trip to Chamonix was totally enhanced due to our stay at la vallee blanche. During our stay the staff were fantastic always taking the time to speak and enquire if all was well. All the staff were informative and gave great advice. On one occasion we returned to the hotel before the bar was doing food, (the times are well posted)we asked if there were any chance of any food, the owner i think Alex just said it may take me an hour ( he was also manning reception) and ill sort it, 45 minutes later four meals served all out of hours. Try that in UK. This is typical of how friendly and helpful all the staff at this hotel are.Further to this my sister in law left her purse and they posted it on two days later. Faultless!

We were VERY disappointed! The room we were given was falling apart and filthy dirty!! We stayed the first night and relocated for our next 2 nights. The bathroom was discusting! This was not a three star hotel by any means! The rating needs to be adjusted to maybe a one star at most. Also,it is located on a very noisy street-kept us awake all night. We will never recommend to anyone!

Stayed for 4 nights, late June 2007. We had to ask specifically to get a host card for the free local bus and train; it is supposed to be given to guests automaticlally, according to all local information centres. The building is old but well kept. Very well located, very close to the central area of town and well within walking distance of the train station.

It was the birthday of my husband who never touched snow so I searched during weeks to find a place with snow in the beginning of November! Well, unfortunatelly, that was exactly the day it wasn't possible to the "téléphérique" and get a great overvieuw of everything, anyway we reached a high pojnt in the mountain and could see the nice ice river! The people were very friendly (also in the city), there are free busses if you stay at the hotel, it must be even more beautiful in december or january with snwo everywhere. The room was big, everything in wood, we only couldn't make the temperature rise, anyway the bed was very warm.

We had a fantastic weeks stay at Le Vallee Blanche. The staff were extremely friendly. The room was well furnished and the beds made every day. Breakfast was worth the 9 euro. The only downside was the temperature of the room. We had to sleep with the window open most nights as you could not turn the radiators down. Apart from that we had a great time and will definately be staying in the future.

Fair hotel at a very reasonable price. Right at the center of chamonix. Rooms are spacious and covered with wood in a typical mountain atmosphere. Huge bath with a view to the main square. Ask for a room with a balcony facing the MontBlanc. Breakfast is decent and is server at the dowstairs irish pub. I stayed at low season and it was well worth the price. I would be happy to return again.

Our room was wonderful--right in the middle of town and beside the roaring stream and on the opposite side from the small street. The room was spacious and had three large openable windows which let in lots of sun and fresh air. This was our favorite hotel room of our 12 day trip to various parts of France (Provence, Paris, Grenoble, Chamonix). We enjoyed it very much and slept extremely well.
