1、位置就在霞慕尼小镇的主街旁边,阳台上可以看到来来往往的户外运动爱好者,充分感受度假氛围。 2、公寓有专属地下车位,住宿期间免费停车,非常方便。 3、人员和车辆进入公寓都需要钥匙或者遥控器,安全保障很不错。 4、有两套卫生间和洗浴设施,人多可以避免排队。 5、餐具炊具齐全,使用方便。要是能再有个微波炉就更好了。 6、洗衣机带烘干功能,方便。 7、假期旺季或者赛事期间放假偏高,但也可以理解。 8、如果大卧室的双人床能改成灵活组合的,可以自由组合成一张双人床或者两张单人床,那就更完美了。

Nice central apartment
We, a family of four with grown up chidren, stayed in the Balmat Apartment for 7 days. The Apartment was as expected. Good space for four people with 2 bathrooms and 2 bedrooms of resonable size. The location in the absolute centre of Chamonix makes it easy to reach all services as restaurants and stores in the pedestrian area. We will be back.

"Damage Deposit" Collection Method Is Harmful
After check-in to the apartment, I was asked to disclose my credit card detail including secure code in clear text for “Damage Deposit”. According to the advice from my bank, I refused to do so, and offered several alternatives for “damage deposit” including cash deposit. In my opinion, current “damage deposit” collection method needs following improvements: - If “credit card detail including securecode” is required to be collected, it should be clearly highlighted in the apartment offering. Potential customers should be informed explicitly on this before paying the rent. - Collecting “credit card detail including secure code” basically is very harmful for customers from cyber security viewpoint. The collected information can be used for many other internet payments if stolen or misuse. I would prefer to pay cash deposit just for damage deposit purpose. Otherwise, the apartment is very well located. Directly in the main street that is car free and full of restaurants and shops. Less than 100 meters to the ski shuttle buses to various ski lifts. The apartment is clean and the service team is helpful.

Thank you for your review. We are sorry for the misunderstanding with the damage deposit for your stay, we take damage deposits by pre-authorising a card for guests who book directly with us (and they are aware of this when they book), but in the case of your booking this was handled by AirBnB which our team didn't realise. Apologies again for this confusion. We are pleased that otherwise you enjoyed the central location and that our team was helpful. We hope to see you back again in the future.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Balmat Apartment. We are glad that you found everything you needed in the apartment and enjoyed the central location. It's true that thanks to this location the apartment does overlook the pedestrian high street for people watching and listening to the buskers (see previous guest comments!), but it may suit heavy sleepers better. We do hope to see you again soon in Chamonix.

great central location
Large and really clean apartment in the centre of Chamonix. Secure garage area. Excellent staff looking after it. We also visited the chamonix all year round shop and bought our lift passes and again had excellent customer service. We will definitely return. We were very satisfied with the apartment and the location.

The sofa is not confortable and it's the only black point in this nice appartement. Goog located in the main street of Cham! You can not come with 6 adults but with two kids it's ok.

Great place in chamonix centre
Apartment was spacious , comfortable , clean and in good condition, the location is great, though maybe bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper as it's next to the main street. Chamonix all year staff super helpful at sorting transfers etc. Had a great stay.

Apartment Balmat - So close to being excellent
This is a really lovely apartment. It is very comfortable and tries to be well equipped. It was booked through "Chamonix All Year" and they are very good to deal with and helpful on arrival. They were to hand if needed but did not pester to push further activities. Just a few frank comments to be considered: The apartment has a few irritating idiosyncrasies which could be ironed out to make this excellent. Chamonix A.Y. get your selves some decent bath towels - it is a disgrace supplying basically a hand towel as a bath towel for what you are charging!Like so many continental apartments the owners have gone cheap and fitted a rubbish(and dirty) microwave which pretends to be an oven as well. These apartments are let as self catering and these appliances are just not up to to catering for a family, we don't all want to live on boiled pasta all week. The rest of the kitchen is well equipped.There are two well appointed bathrooms with over bath showers - only one of these is useable as a shower as the pressure is so low. I prefer a shower and am all for saving water, however, when you give up on the shower as it is so useless and have a bath it defeats the object! The shower in the washing machine room was so much better. The drainage on both baths and sinks is useless and you just end up pulling the drain cover off to get water out, this was the same at our second weeks apartment - are there no good plumbers in France!?!?!?Finally, an issue to be aware of but no one can do nothing about, at 6:30 every morning the main street comes alive and the street sweeper hums its merry way outside your bedroom window. Delivery trucks arrive and shop maintenance runs amuck! If you are an early riser no problem, if not then be warned. On the plus side you are wonderfully entertained by street buskers (some very talented ) throughout the day and well into the evening.As I said, overall a lovely apartment which we would both use again and recommend to others. Equally, the same applies to Chamonix All Year. We look forward to using your services again.

Thank you for your review of Balmat apartment and of the service provided by our Resort Team. We're sorry that you found the oven/microwave combi not cleaned to our usual standards; as we were not aware of this when you were in-resort we could not rectify the matter but have now ensured that this is not missed by the cleaning team. Unfortunately space in the kitchen is slightly limited and there is not space to have separate oven and microwave. We will pass on your other comments regarding the plumbing to our maintenance team. We're pleased to hear that you enjoyed your holiday and the apartment, and we hope we'll see you again soon.

10/10 strongly recommend it for family with kids
The apartment was great & cosy. Nice host, good space and very clean bathrooms. We will definitely book it again when coming back to Chamonix

Appartement spacieux, très bien équipé et confortable. Idéalement situé dans le centre piéton de Chamonix. Parking privé en sous-sol très pratique.
Marie-Jose Marcoux, France - August 2016 (Booking.com review)
The apartment is in a fantastic central location close to all the amenities. It is a large apartment with 2 lovely en suites and a kitchen large enough to cook in. The balcony was also very nice to have a glass of wine on after a day of sightseeing.

Balmat is an exceptionally roomy, well positioned appartment. Ideal for our party of husband/wife, son and teenage grandson.
