Accommodation with all-inclusive packages.

Among the establishments that are popular with travellers, those that offer all-inclusive packages are the most popular. Choose a hotel that offers a range of services such as a wellness area, a lounge bar, a concierge service and daily room cleaning.

Accommodation close to the slopes.

During winter holidays in Chamonix, everyone dreams of skiing right up to their hotel door! If you've never tried it, there's no better feeling than putting on your skis right outside your door. Chamonix and the surrounding area offers a small selection of flats, chalets and hotels in Chamonix that are ski in/ski out. However, bear in mind that these highly sought-after locations are generally more expensive than places further away from the slopes. However, by doing some research before the peak season, you can find the perfect place without breaking the bank.

Accommodation near or far from the city centre?

Are you an après-ski type or do you enjoy the cocooning aspect of your accommodation after spending hours in the fresh air? Defining the time you will spend after skiing will help you choose between a hotel that is far from the city or one that is in the heart of Chamonix and its ski resorts.



 Accommodation that is close to amenities.

Ask yourself what you will need around you on your holiday in Chamonix. Will you want to be close to supermarkets and restaurants or will you want to enjoy the service your accommodation offers? Having shops, ski and bike hire and not forgetting cafes within easy reach of your hotel can be very convenient. So it's up to you to decide what you'll need during your stay.
When you look at the map of Chamonix, you can see the vast, manicured areas served by charming local hamlets and villages. Nevertheless, it will take you about an hour to get from one point in the valley to another. For this reason, it is wise to choose hotels that are close to the activities in town. The Grands Montets hotel, perfect for skiing, close to the centrally located Mont Blanc are the best value and undoubtedly the most popular with tourists. Whether you come to Chamonix in summer or winter, we recommend that you choose a hotel that is close to the places you want to visit.
If you plan to party during your winter holiday in the Alps, choose accommodation in Chamonix close to clubs, restaurants and bars. Note that free public transport is limited to a certain time at night and that night buses operate with reduced frequency. So if you are planning to party until the early hours of the morning, consider staying in a hotel close to the town. This will save you the cost of taxis, which are expensive in Chamonix in both summer and winter. 

Accommodation close to the ski resorts.

If you're a fan of skiing, the first step when looking at Chamonix flats and hotels is to consider which ski areas and slopes are likely to offer the most fun and easy access to Mont Blanc. This will save you a lot of trouble. If you want to live close to the Chamonix ski resort, a hotel in the vast Chamonix valley will certainly do. This part of town will also suit non-skiers, simply because it is served by public transport and most hotels offer free transport for tourists staying there. 
As for amenities, everyone who comes to Chamonix will want to ski. Therefore, please ensure that your hotel is close to the ski resorts and also to the ski schools if you are travelling with your family. This will avoid having to cross the resort in ski boots while carrying two pairs of skis with your children! Also consider the proximity of the local swimming pool and sports centre for those coming with children, as this will keep them entertained after a day on the slopes. And as you also need to relax, consider accommodation near a spa for a good massage or to soak your aching muscles in a hot bath after a few hours of snowboarding.

Accommodation to suit your budget.

Last but not least, the budget you have decided to allocate for your accommodation. In general, the closer you are to the slopes and the centre of the resort, the more expensive the prices, while villages further away from the lifts tend to have cheaper deals. However, please ensure that you get value for money when it comes to convenience by taking into account transport costs and travel time, especially if you have small children with you.
With these few details you will have no trouble finding a charming hotel that suits your needs during your stay in Chamonix. Don't hesitate to consult travellers' reviews to get an idea of a particular establishment. This way, you will avoid having a bad experience during your holidays when you are looking for a place to recharge your batteries!
