It was a great value for the money. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast in the hotel was more than we expected and very good!
I prefer to take showers as opposed to baths and the room we had did not have a shower curtain. It did have a hand-held shower head but it wasn't possible to take a real shower without making a mess.
Genuine, old world, gracious, personal service - right down to real- person manned wake-up calls in the morning.
The hotel is designed in French provincial fashion. Staff were very helpful and gave us some very good information regarding the location of attractions in town. The hotel itself was in a very good location with views to Mont Blanc and other features such as the glacier. Breakfast was quite good. We would recommend this hotel to other travelers.and we would definitely stay there again.
Very friendly and helpful staff providing value for money accommodation-best value accommodation in Chamonix
Staff is very helpful. Breakfast is good.
The hotel is quite old and need some refreshments. However, it's an old 2 starts hotel, don't forget it.
Very friendly and helpful staff. The information provided at the arrival where excellent. I also liked the croissants!
The beds are toooooo soft and a shower curtain would help reducing the mess in the bathroom ;-)
Hotel is very well located in the centre of Chamonix, perfectly placed to explore the town or surrounding area. The bus stop is directly behind the hotel and as I was there for a week's skiing, without a car, this was ideal as anyone who has skied knows, you don't want to have to walk too far lugging skis and wearing uncomfortable ski boots. They also have a very handy ski room in the basement. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet was very good. Even though there is an English pub directly across the road and another bar next door, noise wasn't really an issue even though I had a street-facing room.
If I have to have a criticism, perhaps the decor is a bit dated but this doesn't detract from the overall experience and I suspect the prices will skyrocket if a big refurb is carried out.
huge room charming decor in the ambiance of the 1930's. Beautiful view on the mont blanc and right in the center of Chamonix. Breakfast which was included was great.
could use a slight renovation. window insolation not sufficiant
Position ideal. Splendid views of mountains from my balcony. Friendly multi-lingual staff
Steep front drive to the hotel was dangerously icy
hotel was very clean and the position in the area was extremly good
The staff is very kind, friendly and enthuastic in helping us and answering our inquiries. They let us know the weather, conditions of the attractions, suitable places to ski (with our skiing level), good places to eat, good place to rent ski equipment and made valuable suggestions on our itinerary. All these have helped our stay in Chominox smooth and memorable. There's bus stop behind the hotel that brings us to many skiing slopes. The breakfast is good. If you are not looking for the most luxury places to stay, the hotel is highly recommended.
It'd be better if there's curtain for the bath.
The best part of the Richemond was the staff who are sincere, friendly, and helpful. The hotel is literally behind one of the Chamonix bus stops so easy access to any of the resorts in the valley from Le Tours to Les Houches--this is a godsend when you're done with a full day of boarding and just want to soak in the tub as quickly as possible.
Thin walls and floors. Could hear upstairs hotel guest walking about and snoring, unfortunately.
Right in the middle of Chomonix's main street. Good location, friendly staff. Great view of the mountains from our room.
The hotel has a nice Belle Epoque architecture, but it seems as nothing has been improved in terms of the interior since then. Rooms and the furniture are very old. With some improvement in the interior design, this hotel could be a very decent one. But as it is now, it is a mediocre, old-school mountain hotel with good location.
The staff are very helpful as they allow me to have
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Convenient location in center of town; walking distance to everything, including train and lifts. Hotel needs some maintenance (loose stair carpets, worn and cluttered hallways, bathroom sink clogged). Overall, a good, "safe" choice.
See above re need for maintenance.
