“Gorgeous surroundings”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

The staff was as very nice. The rooms are small and basic but clean. There is a bar outside with loud drunk people that smoke and party all night. That isn't the hotel's fault, but it's a shame because it detracts from the niceness of the experience. The surrounding area is so gorgeous, really stunning.

we would go back. it is very well located and the staff very helpful. the only thing is to ask for a room not on the first floor because of the bar and oise if you want to go to bed early. it is clean and good value for the money.

Room Tip: just be aware that there is a bar and music. so if staying on the first floor, bring ear plugs.

We stayed here for a week to ski Chamonix and it's central location made it easy to drive a relatively short distance through the mountain tunnel to ski Courmayeur one day.

If you are a fan of apres ski, the bar here is THE place to be after a day on the slopes!

While not replete with elegant furnishings, our room was very clean with comfortable beds and the hotel staff could not have been friendlier and more helpful. For the price, we give Gustavia Hotel our highest recommendation!

This hotel is good for one or 2 nights. Very small rooms. I was on the 1st floor and it was really noisy. the restaurant-bar is open until 2 AM. Internet is available only in the lobby.

Hotel has free parking . Good location in the heart of Chamonix.

Rooms ugly. No garage. Not well kept. Night bar transformed to breakfast room. Noisy lobby and bar. Smiling reception. Not even for masochist. Not worth to write 200 characters. Not even 100. Not even 50.

Room Tip: Rather sleep in your car.

In brief

Tiny stuffed rooms, not at all resembling their website photos. No wardrobe. Only 7 TV channels. Very unfriendly staff. Good breakfast. Good bar. Ancient elevator. Loud music from the bar downstairs until 2 am every night.

In details

Staff

This is a home away from home... where guests are NOT welcome. Staff is hardly ever smiling and pleasant. Most of the time it looks like they are bothered by guests or really don't understand what type of business they are in. Receptionist gave us wrong directions to the closest cable-ride up the slopes, insisting there is no way to get there by bus. Imagine walking 1 kilometer uphill with all skiing equipment, only to discover a bus-station right in front of the cable-ride station. Bar staff demonstrates openly discriminatory treatment of female customers. Female bartender literally ignored me, yet I was right in front of her holding money, smiling, trying to catch her attention. She'd serve all males around, but ignore me. Luckily there was a male bartender who approached me, like 15 minutes after.

Room

Our room was on the second floor and starting from 5 pm up to 2 am it was impossible to fall asleep or relax. I cannot imagine how people on the 1st floor managed to sleep. Rooms are really shabby, out-of-date, and just don't seem that clean somehow. No wardrobe, but a wooden stick connecting two adjacent walls, with a couple of hangers on it. Stand-up shower separated from other bathroom area by a shower-curtain. Water is all over the place after taking a shower, as you can imagine. Flat TV screen is tiny as a GPS, and has 7 channels (1 in German, 1 in unknown language, and 5 in English, no French channels at all!). Elevator is antique-looking, which is nice, but you really need to wait for it. Ski/snowboard and luggage storage room is outside of the hotel, you need to ask for a key and bring it back to reception each time you go there.

Breakfast

The only good thing about this place. 10 euros per person. Really good breakfast. Fresh/dried fruits, nuts, muesli, cereals, sausage, ham, scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, toasts, croissants, cheeses, cold cuts, jams, coffee, juices. By the way, if you don't approach the receptionist and tell her that you had breakfast, they will never know, so you can have it for free. No one bothers to check who enters and exits the breakfast room.

Location

Walking distance from the center. Lots of eateries on the street where hotel is located. Small grocery store just a few steps away.

Conclusion

I worked in hotel industry long enough to realize that sincere hospitable service is more important than marble bathrooms, silk linen and other unnecessary luxury. This hotel made a profound bad imression on me. I will never stay there again. And I strongly recommend you look for a different place to stay while in Chamonix.

Room Tip: Take upper floors, otherwise you will not be able to sleep.

Hotel is very central, very popular apres ski bar downstairs. We got a very good room rate. The room was small( attic room), but it was perfect for a short ski trip. The room was clean, very warm and had very comfortable beds. This hotel is near the railway station and close to many bars and restaurants, I would go back.

Room Tip: Higher floors are quieter, but be aware that 4th floor/attic rooms are small
