Plan B is a 3* hotel located in the former bowling alley of Chamonix (pronounced “Shamonee” or better yet, “Sham’”), in Haute-Savoie at the foot of Mont Blanc and a few steps away from the Aiguille du Midi cable car. It was conceived, according to its founder, as “an alternative address” that brings all the funk.
FOR THE COOL AND BY THE COOL, this hotel is a worthy representative of a new generation of “low-stel” design establishments. Stayovers that are well-equipped, multi-purpose, and maintain accessible pricing. A meeting point for locals and visitors, the establishment opens onto a kid-friendly lobby-bar-restaurant-game room with table soccer, mini-bowling, billiards and board games. You can order local beers, aperitif charcuterie & cheese boards, and daily dishes while enjoying, depending on the evening, live music or board games…
UPSTAIRS, THE 50 ROOMS present a great mix of options with views of the Mont Blanc and Chamonix peaks. The double, triple, family, quadruple, 2 or 3 room apartments and dormitories allow you to stay with your partner, family, or tribe in a Scandinavian but fun-first setting, that is colorful and clever (thoughtful storage, modular spaces…), and laced with current design pieces (Hay, House Doctor, Jielde, Serax…). All the freshness you’ll need in the land of high mountains and old alpine-historic palaces.
BOWLING – Are you craving a solid strike? Then you’ll love Highway 66’s 15-meter mini-bowling alley installed here as a nod to the site’s former facilities.
WELLNESS – Privatizable, the spa hosts a jacuzzi, sauna, and herbal tearoom.
BAR & RESTAURANT – For those who are thirsty or hungry, a brasserie and snack menu (snacks, après-ski…) which gives pride of place to local products.
