Liked: Location is good, just a quick walk from the centre of Chamonix. Helpful staff.

Disliked: 1. Power outlets were few or nonexistent. There was nowhere except for the lobby to charge your electronics. 2. The Wifi was a joke. You were lucky to even get to connect to the network. None of the guests I spoke to had been able to access Internet through it.... 3. Guest kitchen was under-equipped and filthy. Utilities to wash your dishes were missing, which could explain why nothing was very clean.
