A comfortable room with a wonderful view. Very clean. A pleasant bar area with log fire, nice little swimming pool. Would definitely recommend. Usual sparse Continental buffet breakfast but that's normal. Otherwise very happy with our stay there and would not hesitate to recommend. We are not skiers and were only in the area to visit family who live in... More

We only booked for one night via one of the last minute etc websites. Even before we arrived we had a message on our phone to tell us how to get in and get our key if we had a late arrival. It was a very welcoming hotel, with an open fire and obviously popular with skiers. The room was... More

This hotel manages to stay cosy and really friendly though it is not that small. There are 40 rooms, a ski room, a bar and a restaurant, a swimming pool and a sauna. Yet the hotel staff create such a lovely atmosphere that you start to believe that this is your home, your living room with a fire-place, your kitchen... More

I just returned from a ski trip to Les Houches and stayed in Chris-Tal hotel. The hotel is family run and a typical hotel of the region. You will see the family around the hotel and having their meals near the bar. When we arrived at around 12 midday there was no one at reception, we waited several minutes and... More

We needed a good-value hotel over a weekend in the Chamonix area for a family of 4 (incl. 2 young children), and found the Chris-Tal. We had a very pleasant stay in the family suite (recommended as it looks up to the ski hill), which has both a main and separate bedroom. Service was pleasant and friendly, and overall comfort...

Stayed for two weeks over new year, family of six. Great service from Flo, the charismatic French owner and his team. Flo went beyond the call of duty to help with various ailments and mishaps making our stay a pleasure. Pool and sauna are great after a days skiing, bar with wood fire and restaurant ideal. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Crystal. It is in a great location with a great nursery slope a 3 minute walk away. Also, it is 20m from a ski hire shop which is next to a bus stop with buses every half hour to the ski slopes. In the Hotel, there is a bar, good restaurant, a small swimming... More

I went with a friend for a late season ski weekend. The price was very low when compared to other available hotels from Chamonix to Merebel. The room was comfortable, big enough for two for the long weekend. The restaurant is tasty and the menu similar to many local restaurants. Good wine list. Great cheap, "local" wines. The owner was...

Rooms were a good size, for the Alps, and the staff friendly. The ski boot room, games room, tv/Internet room, bar and swimming pool were all in reasonable order. I like that the hotel is family owned and run, not corporate. Location is good for transport links and the local skiing (2 bus stops away) is varied, picturesque (mostly tree... More
