A combination of standard hotels, basic hotels, and mountain refuge accommodations. This trip has a "Basic" Service Level grading, and uses mountain refuges, with some accommodation on this tour as multi-share. This may involve 3-4 group members sharing and often in the mountains dormitory style rooms for the whole group. Rooms will not be en-suite and will have shared bathroom facilities. Please note that the Hotel Chamonix is affiliated with the nearby Hotel Crete Blanche and that in some cases the group could be divided between the two hotels. These two lovely hotels in the centre of Chamonix have everything we need to enjoy the area and get a good rest before and after our trek. The interior of the hotels are all in wood, giving them a very typical Alpine atmosphere. We will be staying at a mixture of mountain refuges and small local hotels on this trip. Most nights will be multi-share and with basic, shared facilities.
