“cheapest beer in town and entertainment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Me and my boyfriend stayed at this pleasent and friendly hotel , there was a variety of foods at breakfast which were very nice . the seated area out side the hotel was situated so you could enjoy a cold beer and take in culture, with pubs around you which had live entertainment and cheap beer we would recomend this hotel to all tourers .

The staff were very nice, and the bed super comfortable after a 2 day ski. It is an older building but captures the charm a bit of the place. It is centrally located in easy walking distance of everything. If you like a lively bar, this is the place.

friendly staff, fast check in, great location (opposite to the train station), private parking. overall the place felt more like a hostel and our room nr.411 turned out to be a disaster. we booked "last moment" 5 hours prior to our arrival, so could not be bothered to complain as we were to stay 1 night only. no closet or any kind of storage space in this room. fixing the ceiling window and repainting the walls would be very essential (see enclosed pictures). VERY noisy bar, with great atmosphere (for teenagers and twenty something), but guest at the 2nd and 3rd floor must wear earplugs @ night. this is not a hotel for families with small children. breakfast for 10 Euros pp. next time I would choose a different location or ask for a different room at least.

Room Tip: room nr. 411 is a NO

Travelled to the Gustavia on 24th Jan for 4 nights. Booked through Ski Weekends who we can't fault at all! Hotel reception staff were very friendly, efficient check in and quick look round showed a lounge, bar and dinning room.

We were in room 305 - lovely balcony and stunning view of the mountains. The room was clean and larger than some that I've stayed in at different ski resorts. The beds are small singles as standard in most European ski resorts. Hot water was constant. Room was so we turned the radiator down and the problem was solved.

There is a very busy, popular bar at the bottom of the hotel, if you're a light sleeper, or don't want to join the party, then ask for a higher floor. The bar goes quieter after 11 as the seasonnaires and most of the party moves on. Police do the circuit often around Chamonix, so do address issues as they arise.

Breakfast was great. It's billed as continental, but you get more. Bacon, sausage and scrambled eggs. Cold meats and cheeses, baguette, pastries. Yogurt with fruits and nuts. Porridge to keep you going. The coffee was very hot, and fresh and you got a mug, rather than dinky cups that you have to refill often.

Staff were always on hand and very helpful, they don't offer the "American" customer service, which to me was refreshing. In short, you asked and you got what you wanted! They kept cool even though we saw them getting some short shrift from some!

I'd happily recommend this hotel to friends and family and think its good value for money, and we are looking forward to our next visit!

3 night ski break with husband. Hotel looks like it has "been grand" but in honesty is a bit shabby in places. Staff were fine, but we had no problems to deal with. Room was so hot. Can't kelp windows open due to noise from the bar. So take earplugs. Breakfast adequate, but ten euro pp so eat plenty! Theres ski storage. The plus side ( depends how you look at it) is it houses chamber nuef, the wildest apres ski bar in town. Bonkers. But great. So book a room on 3rd or 4th floor....

Overall I enjoyed my stay at the Gustavia but it is definetely not worth its price. I can get pretty noisy because of the bar downstairs and it is also located in a very busy part of the town (opposite the train station). There is lot of places in Chamonix and around with definetely better value for money.

We arrived well in advance to the check-in time and were told, that our room was not ready yet and we could check in after 3pm.
After we came back from skiing at around 5pm and wanted to check-in, they told us, that we were moved to another hotel, since the were overbooked.
They didn't even apologies or tried to help us to move. In addition we had to pay parking extra at our new hotel and didn't have free wireless.
The staff at the Gustavia Hotel was very unfriendly.
