    No towels, no wifi, had to clean (inclduing vaccum and take out rubbish) on departure. Noisy from the street below. Check in and out is in a different building which myself (and other guests) got confused with, it wasnt clear on our confirmation that we needed to go down the road (not far in distance but still very annoying when you do not have internet access or a telephone to find out where).

    Location across from bus station and close to town. Clean. Good kitchenette.

    The apartment smelled bad. It smelled after cigarettes, as there has obviously been smoked before. And not just once, it was impossible to air the smell out. The smoke detector was taped over. The apartment was very very small and the furniture and facilities all very old and dated. This apartment may be suitable for two people comfortably, but definitely not three or more. The couch was not very comfortable to sleep on for an adult, it was quite short.

    The location of the apartment was superb! Only a minute from the cable car Aguile du Midi and only a short walk (3mins) from the lovely shopping street and what I think was the centre.

    Our room was advertised as sleeping 5, was fine for us as we were only 3- two adults and a toddler. Although technically 5 people could sleep there it is definitely too small to be comfortable, I would say max 3 people.

    I think for the price we paid this place is very good value, very good location as opposite the bus stop. It was basic but perfectly adequate considering how cheap it was. Had everything we needed (apart from kettle) You have to make your own bed on arrival and also clean the kitchen on departure (its small so takes 2 minutes) and also remember to bring your own towels as they are not included.

    Great place to stay for ski trip to Chamonix

    • Standard Two-Room Apartment (4/5 people)
    • Stayed 7 nights

    Wasn't clear when we arrived what floor our apartment was on ... said 1st floor on the slip from reception but actually it was in the basement. Reception located in the neighbouring Pierre & Vacances building so had to go back there to clarify where apt was. Turned out a basement apt was fantastic - doors opened into small garden/terrace area, and meant we didn't have to go up and down in the lift with ski boots etc everyday

    Location was perfect - central Chamonix so walking distance to plenty bars and restaurants. Directly opposite Chamonix Sud bus stop which was ideal for ski buses to all the ski areas including courmayeur. Ski locker downstairs. Apartment itself clean, comfortable, kitchen adequately equipped. Comfortable sofas and bed.

    The check in/check out. The place where we stayed doesn't have reception, meaning we needed to check in and check out in other building about 5 min away walk. The reception was open for very limited time for check in and for the checkout we just left the keys in the apartments - we left at 5am. I then received a text saying they couldn't find one of the keys and would charge the deposit. I spent most of the day trying to contact them (while traveling back home) to finally find out they have found the keys but didn't bother to tell me.

But the room we got is in the "garden floor" without any mountain/city view, it doesn't have any balcony, just a door leading to a shadowy public lawn with no "view" whatsoever!!! - Apartment is small for five adults, after the beds are laid out, there is no space to move around.

    Apart from the non functioning wifi and television, we were having a great time.... until we ran out of toilet paper. Also, it would have been nice if warned upfront for the fact that we had to rent towels. Now we were stuck without until the next day. Lastly, having to wait 10 minutes at reception for checkout and then being sent back to the room to take off bedding and throw away trash bags seems a little ridiculous, because cleaning costs were supposed to be included. Worst experience so far in Chamonix.

    The fact that you could only check in after 4 was stupid. You are essentially waiting in the cold with loads of bags and moaning children. Check in is only available before 12 or after 4. Therefore if you arrive in between you're screwed. You can't even get into the reception at Piere Vacances as it has a code. Since it was a Sunday when we arrived many bars and cafes were closed.

I asked the maneger of the Residence to come, but the receptionist solved the dispute. So, please cheсk the kyes at ones! There is no sitting places in the ski room.

    Placement. Just in front of your Maeva Residence there is a Bus stop station (Shuttle bus and Alpybus from Geneva). 10 min walking to the center of Shamonix. Skiroom in the same bilding. Mont Blanc - from the window (if it is in front of). If you buy unlimited ski pass you can go to Aiguille du Midi, ski in Switzerland or in Italy/ We were in Italy (the way through the tunnel). There is good area for carving ski, good espresso and good prices in Italy. In Shamonix you must use Free ride ski. Food. In the center of Chamonix there are a lot of good Restaurants. To Buy sumthing to eat - you mast go to "CARREFOUR" (18 min from Maeva Residence).
