We were mid-way the TMB when we came upon the Gai Soleil for dinner. The hotel is family run and the staff are very friendly. The set dinner at 20 euros was worth it, as every dish was wonderful. Would recommend!

We stayed here while on the Tour du Mont Blanc this past August. The rooms are pretty basic but very clean. The hotel is run by a lovely woman who is very welcoming. Dinner was fabulous. Les Contamines is a nice, quaint area.

The room was one of the nicer ones we stayed in during our hike; however, the food was a little disappointing. We were served a steak dinner, but the steak was a little over cooked. The celery soup appetizer was very bland, but the salad...More
