Where should you stay for a weekend in Chamonix? We cover some of the best options available...
Once you have picked Chamonix as the location for your short ski trip you need to decide where to stay.
The short airport transfer times and world-renowned skiing are not the only reasons that Chamonix is the ideal destination for your ski weekend. The variety and flexibility of the accommodation also make it perfect for a quick alpine visit.
From 3 stars to 5 stars, there is a hotel to suit you and with prices starting at £399 for a weekend stay, a mini-break is easily affordable.
Here are our top picks of where to stay in Chamonix:
Le Refuge des Aiglons ★★★★
The Le Refuge des Aiglons comes high on our recommendation list. The 4-star hotel is centrally located giving great access to most of the lift stations.
There's a spa area where you can relax with a soak in a hot tub. Or enjoy the popular bar where you can grab a drink after a day's skiing. On selected nights the in-house DJ steps up and the party gets underway.
There is also a ski hire shop located in the building which makes a short weekend break even easier to manage.
Hotel Hameau Albert ★★★★★
Easily one of the most stylish hotels in Chamonix and located right in the thick of the town, it's no surprise that this is a one of the most popular 5-star hotels to choose in resort.
The food in the two-star Michelin Restaurant is outstanding, with a focus on seasonally inspired dining. All the rooms are equally impressive, warm, unbelievably comfortable and individually-styled allowing you to pick one to suit your taste.
Add to this a spa, pool and terrace bar it is hard to see why you would leave the building unless it is to go skiing.
Hotel Mont Blanc ★★★★★
When you arrive in Chamonix and take a stroll around town it's hard not to notice the impressive building that is the Hotel Mont Blanc.
We love this traditional hotel for its classy vibe and superb service. The rooms are as luxurious as any other in the town and they are beautifully furnished, making it the perfect location for a short getaway.
Also located in the hotel is Le Matafan - one of Chamonix's most popular restaurants - with Michelin star chef Mickey Bourdillat bringing his take on local traditional food.
Chalet Les Jumelles ★★★★
Typically run as a self-catered option, Ski Weekend can offer fully hosted packages together with your very own private chef. Often booked well in advance, it’s well worth thinking ahead to stay in our flagship Chalet Les Jumelles.
Chalet Les Jumelles is a 15-minute walk into town. But don't worry about trekking all that way with your ski equipment - we will organise transfers direct to and from the lifts. After skiing, you can cosy up by the fire or unwind in the chalet's sauna.
Pointe Isabelle Hotel ★★★
Don't be put off by the star rating this is a fun and stylish place to stay! The price is affordable and makes a third or fourth ski trip achievable.
The rooms are clean and fashionable. Downstairs there is a bar and restaurant that both have a relaxed and trendy vibe. The Point Isabelle Hotel is just a short stroll to the main train station and the resort's buses pass by the door.
