Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

We are delighted to feature this state of the art, chic, yet comfortable hotel at the foot of the Aiguille de Midi cable car and just a 5 minute walk from the centre of town.

Enjoy its wonderful spa which covers over 500m² and is open all day for residents only. A treat for walkers after a long hike or just to pamper, the cutting edge concept offers hot areas (sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi) linked by a warm ‘tiedipaerium’ to the cold area which includes an ice grotto and plunge pool. There is also a large indoor swimming pool. Beauty treatments, hair dressers and massages are also available (payable locally).

The large lobby in the heart of the hotel offers a variety of special hospitality areas which include an all day tea and coffee station (free of charge), multimedia area, home cinema, bar, restaurant. Children are well catered for with their own play room (and look out for the sweetie bar!).

The huge choice of outdoor activities (see our excursions tab) includes rafting, parapenting, mountain biking, climbing, horse riding and summer toboganning. In Chamonix, there is also a superb adventure park, a sports centre and a wonderful 18 hole golf course in Le Praz and mini-golf. Why not try our fantastic new Peaks of Perfection Activity Week in Chamonix, a perfect holiday if you love an active break, leave the organising to us!

Offering a wide range of shops, cafés, bars and restaurants, Chamonix also has a cinema, casino and nightclubs. Take a trip up the spectacular Aiguille du Midi, one of Europe’s highest cable-cars, or a ride on the famous rack railway to 6,200ft to admire the stunning Mer de Glace glacier. For those looking to beat the crowds, spend an unforgettable night in the Refuge du Montenvers, sitting on the top of the Mer de Glace.
