“Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

Very friendly staff. Great location with safe parking, important in Chamonix if you you have a hire car !

5 mins walk to either side of the main street.

Rooms are very comfortable with good quality beds and linen. Free WIFI available

Breakfast is just about fair value. Mainly french with the addition of cheese and ham and rice pud

Small Tea room attached with good cakes and drinks

Overall, a lovely experience

We have just come back from a week at Chamonix and we were staying at the hotel l'Oustalet. We chose this hotel based on the fantastic reviews on Trip Advisor and we certainly were not disappointed, from the friendliness of the owners and staff to the cleanliness of the room, comfortable beds, absolutely divine breakfast topped with pastries made by the in-house Patissier (try the various cakes from the tea room also made in-house, highly original and taste divine!!)
All put together, this hotel is by far one of the best we have stayed in and I am comparing to some 4 and 5 star hotel who may not always have the level of customer service you would expect, A truly wonderful experience, long may they continue!

We stayed at L'Oustalet in early January. It was perfect in every way.

The staff were very friendly, welcoming and informative.

The rooms were quite large and very clean, warm and comfortable. We had 2 balconies and a view of all the mountains.

The buffet breakfast was very delicious - I loved the cinnamon rice pudding! It also has a lovely, very inexpensive cafe open until the early evening for yummy cakes that looked absolutely fantastic and tasted just as great. The cafe also served light meals - the pumpkin soup was my sons favourite.

We chose this hotel based on Tripadvisor's ranking and we were not disappointed at all. Thanks Tripadvisor, you take the stress out of travelling.

We highly recommend Hotel L'Oustalet and would certainly stay there again if we visited Chamonix again.

Super friendly staff, really clean with very comfy beds. This is a no-frills hotel but if you just want somewhere lovely to sleep after a great day's skiing - the Oustalet is perfect. (but don't tell too many people.....!)

We stayed for a long weekend, and enjoyed beautiful sunny days and fresh mountain air.

Within 10minutes walk to the centre of Chamonix and 5minutes from the cable car station - The hotel is conveniently located.

Upon arrival, you receive a most friendly welcome from reception. We had a 2nd floor room, with balcony, over looking the garden and swimming pool, with a magificent view of Mont Blanc, and Aiguille du Midi. Buffet breakfast is served in the groundfloor restaurant overlooking the garden.

Our accomodation comprised, main bedroom with table, chairs, tv and the most comfortable of beds. One sleeping area in the hallway leading to the bedroom, bathroom and separate toilet.

Our first visit to Chamonix meant we needed to rely upon hotel staff for guidance and recommendations. All assistance was provided patiently and reliably.

The long list of postive reviews are a testament to the quality of this place.

We look forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: Take a room, with a balcony at the rear of the property and you have a view of the mountains.
