I have stayed at this hotel a few times and I will come back because of the great food, a stunning view of Mont Blanc and of course its great location in Chamonix. The staff is very friendly and help you out with almost anything. The rooms are ok, not great but fine. If the wifi had been working I... More

Location is good, but the hotel needs an update. Plus, with so many bars and restaurants nearby, getting a good night's rest is tough. If you decide to stay here, bring earplugs! We were told we had a room with a view. Well, if you consider a view of the wall of the building next door, you'll score. Personally, I... More

Gustavia has awesome , helpful and very knowledgeable staff. We are a couple (aged 40) who climb and love to travel. This is a very central hotel, 5 mins from both main streets of Chamonix and 5 mins from the Cable car up to Aguilles du Midi. Its got varying rooms in terms of size, some mountain facing, some not...

This hotel in summer is a walkers/climbers hotel, no frills. It is in a perfect location for the station, Montenvers railway, and Midi cable car, a fair walk for Planpraz lift however. The hotel is clean and the breakfast is superb, and the dinner was fine.The only downside was a drain smell in the bathroom together with some noise from... More

We arrived about 8.30.p.m. having been delayed by the French Rail strike. We had booked a double/twin room but were allocated a single room by the well meaning but totally inefficient receptionist. We had to go down and tell him it was a single and he proceeded to get a bed to put in the room. I Can only describe... More

Stayed on two separate occasions, staff were very helpful, room was spacious enough with a great view of the mountains, bathroom was quite large the first time we stayed and adequate on the next. Breakfast was one of the best we have had in the 2 weeks we have been in Europe. Bed comfortable, and noise was not a problem,... More

I hosted a visit for 40 travellers from our local running club, to compete in the Mont Blanc Marathon event in June 2014. To keep costs down, there was room sharing by many of us, including some in triple or quad rooms. The rooms were comfortable, there was good food available, the bar has a great atmosphere, and it is... More

Well placed and reasonable priced. But thats it. The hotel is a bit shabby and worn down and it comes across in most aspects incl breakfast. Seemed popular with younger crowd. Maybe the apres ski was the attraction? If you need to stay as a family, try to get the apartment.

The room itself was fine - basic but comfortable - but really there were too many annoyances: Hopelessly unreliable wifi. This is important if you're trying to snatch some extra ski time but need to keep in touch with work Staffing gap between 7 and 8 AM so if they run out of the (excellent) scrambled egg during that time,...
