As part of our "Tour du Mont Blanc" hike, Champex was a beautiful place to stay. Having stayed in B&Bs, hotels and auberge or refuges, having a self-contained,one bedroom apartment was great. We could relax, spread out, do some washing and hang it out to dry on our balcony, and of course cook in the kitchenette. Au Vieux Champex was... More

My husband and I stayed in Champex in the middle of the TMB trek. I was disappointed that the apartment was old and shabby with a dirty and poorly equipped kitchen. The deck is also shared with the room next door so not ideal (especially for the price). The wifi did not connect to the phones in the room either.... More

After a full day of trekking the TMB and getting lost along the route with two other trekkers we had just met, this gem of a place really hit the spot. It was raining pretty heavily the day we arrived in Champex, and the lovely restaurant within this accommodation spot truly was a godsend. We waited out the storm, enjoying... More

Thought this was great value for Switzerland in the lovely town of Champex, overlooking the lake. Was touted as two bedroom apartment but was a one bedroom with a sofa bed in the living room. Clean although bit dated. Did initially think the staff were a bit off, however think it might have been more a language barrier as my... More

Dined here on previous visit and was disappointed. Thought I would give it another go on this trip as it is a nice looking building. Unfortunately I was disappointed again but this time more so. Tough inedible steak and when I pointed this out to the owner he was quite offensive. Not the sort of servive anyone should endure

As part of our 11 day trek on the Chamonix to Zermatt High Route we got to sample many styles of accommodation. Au Vieux Champex has a great manager that welcomed our dirty boots inside the hotel. The wood fired barbque for cooking steaks in the restaurant is a nice touch. Our room was very warm during the recent storms... More

I liked this hotel. The room I got was nice and big and was a big welcome after a few days in cramped "cruise ship rooms" in the auberges. The bed was comfortable as well. The hotel is located right in town center (although the town is not that big anyway) and is very close to ATM/market/bus terminal. The onsite... More

This was the first night of a 4 day walk. The hotel is fine. We had an apartment for 3 people. Small but workable. ok for a single night stay but you might want larger if you wanted to prepare food and eat there. Thin mattresses and pillows, but a fine dinner compensated. Champex is a nice little town.

We enjoyed staying at this hotel. The owner was very nice and friendly. The room was good, the food was authentic and good. The view is wonderful. Although the town is full with hotels, this place feels cosy and warm. We recommend this place.

The worst experience I ever had with hotels – the hotel owner blackmailed us and in did not respect our credit card guaranteed reservation: as a result we found ourselves in a remote village in the evening, with two children and no place to stay. We are a family with two children and in our last vacation we walked the... More
