Vous êtes bien chez eux

What does "bien" translate as in the first sentence, "Vous êtes bien chez Anne-Sophie et Guy Degrenne?"

Hi Drew, 

It is just one of those idiomatic uses of  'bien'  (correctly translated by Chris ) but it is a statement and not a question -

You are indeed at the home of ... = you have dialled the right number 

Hope this helps!
