Say the name Chamonix and any skier or snowboarder worth their salt will tell you that this is a legendary resort, but there’s more to this place than the white stuff. With breathtaking vistas, a dizzying array of adrenaline-charged activities and rugged mountains coated in lush greenery, this magical mountain location is equally alluring throughout the rest of the year too.
RockyPop Hotel is the newest addition to Chamonix’s hospitality scene, and ups the ante on laid-back leisure with its stunning views and fun-filled attitude to your alpine stay away. Unwind after a day of hiking with your choice of the cuisines on offer from the restaurant’s three food-court-style counters, before finding yourself in the midst of a table-football tournament, or sipping a beer over a live band in the bar. Guest rooms here are charismatic and cosy, with pops of red, postcards on the walls and plenty of amenities to create a real home from home to suit everyone.
How to Get There
Stayed 4 nights at the hotel. Love the little extra offered by the hotel. Kettle available at reception n fridge for your use. Compliment coffee / tea was superb :)
The restaurant served great n sumptuous meal, I would rated it my own 'Michelin' standard :)
Breakfast was good too :)
This hotel is simply brilliant. The staff are polite and helpful, the location is perfect with ideal and easy transport links less than 100 metres from the hotel. The food is world class and very reasonably priced and the rooms are modern, clean and very presentable. I did not expect this level of class from this hotel and will definitely be visiting again. I've done a lot of travelling and this is by far one of the best hotels I've stayed in. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who is thinking of visiting Mont Blanc for outdoor activities or simply relaxing. 10/10! I really can't stress enough how enjoyable my stay was here.
We needed a 2 night stopover and this was perfect. We got a good rate as booked in advance. The mezzanine room was small but had comfortable beds, big TV and great shower. The only factor worth mentioning is my husband is 6 foot exactly and had to bow his head in some areas of the room. The staff were friendly and there was free bottled water in a fridge and tea and coffee making facilities all in the lounge area. The vibe is quite hipster with retro arcade games and quirky art but we didn't feel out of place. The restaurant had a range of burger and pizza all reasonably priced. We didn't bother with breakfast. The bus into Chamonix is free and leaves outside the hotel door every 30 mins and takes 20 mins. Saves the hassle of parking in Chamonix. All in all I recommend!
Booked a four night break at this hotel, in a great mountain setting, which was funky and fun. Great bar, chill and dining areas. Staff friendly and spoke good English. Regular and convenient buses outside to Chamonix and down valley, therefore having no car not an obstacle to accessing town, shops other restaurants and activities particularly wide gondola network for high level walking and sightseeing. Would stay again
Spent a few days at this hotel in June and found it to be very good value (if you can get a discounted rate through a booking site) with clean, but not large, rooms and a funky ambiance. Bathroom was a bit small and I had to go out into the room to towel myself. My other gripe is that they let kids run riot at the bar area which makes having a quiet drink impossible. Perhaps they should move the toy boxes out of the immediate area.
Restaurant was fine as well but had limited seating if you didn't want to go outside with all the smokers. But they always found room for me.
Hotel is in Les Houches which is about 5-6 klms from Chamonix. You can get a free bus pass at the Hotel.
All in all, a pleasant stay and would have given it 5 stars but for my gripes above!
