Excelsior Chamonix Hotel & Spa Location

Whilst it's not central to Chamonix (4km North), it's out of town location more than makes up for it with the views available from the guest rooms.  The hotel is located in Le Lavancher on the ski bus route between the Flegere and between Argentiere/Grand Montet ski lifts. It is less than a 1km to the La Trappe Ski Lift and 2km to the Brevent-Flegere Ski Lift. There are free ski buses to both the lifts and Chamonix town centre 15 mins away. The buses run typically between 6am and 8:30 pm. Night bus (pay locally) from 8:30pm to midnight.
