Lyon and the Alps Hotels



L'Auberge Croix-Blanche

At a Glance


  • top value for Chamonix
  • the L'M café terrace is iconic


  • overall comfort is basic at best
  • charm and tradition at the expense of functionality and luxury

L'Auberge Croix-Blanche Review

If you want to enjoy top value and simultaneously savor a historic Alpine vibe, head to the heart of Chamonix and this small, ancient inn, founded in 1793; although lodgings here may be modest and tidy, they offer good views—there's nothing quite like lying in your tub and looking out the window at Mont Blanc. To get the best of both worlds, make sure you ask for one of the newly renovated rooms. There is no onsite restaurant, but right next door is Brasserie de L'M, where reasonably priced Savoie specialties are served. The hotel shuttle bus can take you to the slopes.
