Cyril was very professional and helpful at check-in and check-out. The apartment was clean and well equipped. While it is small, it was comfortable for my 5 day stay.
The location is good, with centre of town and ski buses just a short walk away. The apartment overlooks a central square with several bars and cafes. The noise from the square at night was quite loud at times and the balcony doors were not very good at blocking the noise. If you are early to bed and/or a light sleeper, ear plugs may be helpful. Otherwise the apartment was fine and provided a good value stay in Chamonix.
Rob's place is amazing value. It was very well located (2 minutes' walk to the Chamonix Sud bus stop with regular free buses to all the slopes; even closer to the ticket office, rental shops, and a supermarket). It was very clean, warm and spacious enough for two guys (at night we folded out a single and double bed, and when we packed them away in the morning there was plenty of space). It's great that WiFi is included. The oven and induction stove, plus all the cookware you need, meant we could save heaps by cooking good stuff at home. It also has a lovely view of a square and the mountain face of the Brevent field (about 1km walk to gondola if you feel like it). People talking outside a bar across the square can be noisy but the windows are well insulated and we had no trouble at all sleeping, especially being so tired after skiing, but light sleepers would be fine with earplugs (or could join the (email hidden)anks Rob.
Great location and lovely flat, which had everything we needed. Very helpful agency who met us and gave us lots of local info
Une belle place à rester. Proche de l'Aiguille du Midi. Un peu difficile à trouver par contre avec ces indications sur le site Airbnb. Aurait aimé plus d'information avant le jour de mon arrivée. L'appartement à une belle vue sur les montagnes. Je n'ai pas parlé avec Rob directement, mais avec Marianna, qui était super sympathique et était disponible pour nous aider!
We had a great time in Chamonix, and the Rob's place is nice. Very well located, just one minute walking to the Aiguille du Midi lift.
The place isn't big, but very fine for 2 people. The sofa-bed was good, but the liners weren't organized, so we had a little difficulty to find witch one was clean. Besides that, it was very good.
Brilliant little flat right on the heart of Chamonix. (Literally
Minutes from the high street) Cosy, functional and well looked after.
