Les Balcons Du Savoy, Chamonix-Mont-Blanc: 286 reviews and 5 photos

This beautiful inn is located just up the hill from Chamonix's Club Med, about a 5 minute walk to the center of town.

In the main part of the winter season there is a lift very close which brings you up Mt. Brevent. In the spring when the snow melts, you have to walk a while across a long field to the main tram which brings you up Mt. Brevent.

If you want to try the Mount Blanc Glacier you need to cross to the other side of town no matter what the season since it is opposite the location of Mount Brevent.

The Inn is small, yet the craftsmanship and interior decorating is impeccable. The interior main lobby has a fireplace, and wet bar with couches to relax upon and reflect your days activities.

The staff is exdtremely friendly and speak English which was welcome since my broken French elsewhere in Chamonix usually ended up in giggles.

They were top notch and willing to make our stay as comfortable as possible. I was so happy here the first time I visited, I returned with my mother the next year so she could experience beautiful Chamonix as well!

Unique Qualities: The whole inn as well as the rooms were beautiful. The woodworking,tiling and interior decorating was beautiful as well as the views of Chamonix and Mont Blanc.

The location was in town, but on the outskirts. This meant you could enjoy a short walk to everything your heart would desire to visit, a view that would probably rank in the top ten in the world, and the quiet and serenity of not being in the middle of town.
