The Cristal de Jade is a five-star residence in the centre of Chamonix Mont-Blanc, France next to the Aiguille du Midi cable car.

The Cristal de Jade is a residence in the heart of Chamonix. Three buildings of 51 apartments are connected via a series of walkways with underground parking, a wellness centre (swimming pool, jacuzzis, sauna, hammam) a gym and a spa. Whilst not a hotel, the residences are the closest to modern luxury you will find in the town. We have stayed in a one-bedroom and a fantastic two-bedroom duplex for one and two weeks.

The apartments are well equipped with a decent-sized kitchen, especially by Chamonix standards. Rooms are cleaned once a week and some extras like shopping delivery, a selection of wines and champagnes, bakery service, ski lockers with boot-dryers, and rental of ski equipment are available.

The pool is a good size with seating both inside and outside. A smaller children's pool is also available. The residences also have a washing room with a dryer and a bike room.

Having stayed in many apartments and hotels in Chamonix, the Cristal de Jade is the only one we return to.

Rating 5/5

Pros: As close to luxury as you will get in Chamonix without renting a chalet

Cons: Rooms facing the road, wellness centre only available from 10am to 8pm
