Hôtel Faucigny

Boutique hotel in Chamonix

Stylish in an upmarket-Ikea kind of way, this boutique hotel has 28 dinky monochrome rooms, lifted by splashes of crimson. There's also afternoon tea, a mini-spa (with sauna and hot tub) and a summer terrace with Mont Blanc views.

Prices vary with the time of year and demand, so check the website for deals. There are seasonal closures for half of May and November.
