Winter is coming and with it my envy for a mountain trip. I want to book a room at the Rocky Pop at Houches, in the heart of Chamonix’s Valley. This new generation of hotel is an hybrid between a hostel and a three-star hotel and is just so dreamy.
What to expect: 149 rooms (accommodating from 1 to 12 guests), foosball table, arcade games, balls court, giant wooden tables to eat on, pizzas, burgers and Savoyardes specialities for dinner, a cocktail bar, a ski shop, a free shuttle to get to the slopes, a library filled with cool books, many board games, unlimited and free wifi, a cosy lounge, an open-air café under the olive trees, movie nights in the lounge and a rather surprising atmosphere.
We could book a RockyDuplex for the fam, a 2 stories family room with a double bed, 2 simple beds and a mini living room. Little bonus: there is also unlimited VOD and the ginormous breakfast buffet starts at 6:30 am. Which is awesome for the relentless skiers and perfect for the parents with kids who wake up (super) early.
Whether you have a big family or just going with all your friends, there is also 2 90 square meters penthouses accommodating a maximum capacity of 12 guests and featuring an equipped kitchen, a wine cave (this is important!), many storage space and a Hi-Fi sound system.
it will cost you from 60€ per night for a double bedroom in a cool place. There you go…
