The Pointe Isabelle makes a great base for those wanting to get out walking and exploring Chamonix, its centrally located and offers a rich history.
A hotel with a history of walking
It’s hard not to fall in love with the Pointe Isabelle after hearing its story. It’s named after Isabella Straton, a British lady who broke boundaries exploring the Alps in the Victorian era. She pioneered women's mountain climbing and would take on challenging journeys to undiscovered parts of the Mont Blanc massif with her husband who was a mountain guide. In her honour her grandchildren opened this hotel and it’s name still survives today. Whilst the hotel has modern features, there are references to Isabella and her famous past all around the hotel, from historic pictures even down to the wallpaper and carpets.
The perfect base in Chamonix’s centre
We love the comfort of the Pointe Isabelle hotel, its fantastic position in the centre of Chamonix means you have everything on your doorstep. Rooms are tastefully decorated and all offer balconies so you can watch the mountains and the world go by or head to the hotel bar and terrace to be right in the action.
