“Perfect location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2012 via mobile

We stayed 2 nights here and it was perfectly located - a couple of mins walk to the town centre and the same to the Aiguille du Midi cable car. The rooms were clean and comfortable - our son loved the separate bunk beds. We had room #5 which had an exceptionally large terrace with a perfect view of Mont Blanc, as other guest have said definitely book a Mt Blanc view room. The pool and garden area were also nicely appointed with plenty of green space for our son to run around safely (and not disturb others by the pool etc).
By Australian standards this is a relatively expensive hotel but not by Chamonix standards!
Would definitely recommend for families with small children looking for a couple of nights accommodation in a great location.

A really nice hotel to stay in, the owner is charming and welcoming, and the staff are professional and make a good effort.

Rooms a good size, well equipped. Nice hard mattress.

Quiet location but only a short walk form the centre of the village. Chamonix is great for walking in the summer, with loads of choices for all ability levels.

Breakfast was great, nice fresh yogurt and good coffee, and plenty of choice. Free wi fi in public areas, but not in the bedroom.

Balcony had nice Mountain views, although like many hotels not very private.

Not sure if or when I will return to Chamonix, because there are so many other places in the Alps that I'd also like to visit, but, if I do, I'd check out this hotel first because it was excellent value and I was made to feel welcome.

We spent three nights in July in a room with queen bed, and separate room with bunk beds for our son. The rooms are immaculate, in traditional wooden style, with balconies and views of Mt Blanc. Breakfast is simple but plentiful. The Tea room is lovely as is the garden with swimming pool. A short walk to town and next door to the Aiguille du Midi tram. Family owned and operated. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with view of Mt Blanc.

My partner and I stayed at L'Oustalet for two nights in June this year. The hotel room was very clean, which is an absolute must for myself above all else, the beds ( two singles pushed together) were comfortable with crisp white sheets and bedding. The views from the balcony were amazing, looking up at Mont Blanc and the Aiguile du Midi. The bathroom again very clean with bath and shower, quite small but ok. The hotel has a pool and loungers, set in a pretty garden. The staff here are so nice and will go out of their way to help you. The only gripe for me would be that the hotel has no restaraunt, there is a tea room where they serve drinks , snacks and cakes, and they also serve a continental breakfast here, which we did not try.Another good point to mention is that the hotel is 5 min walk away from the Aiguile du Midi cable car and a 5 min walk from the centre of town. Overall I think the L'Oustalet is good value for money in Chamonix where everything is quite expensive. If I ever go back to Chamonix , which i'm sure I will, I would def stay at Hotel L'Oustalet

We have been many times in Chamonix over the last years and each time stayed at l'Oustalet. Very kind and helpful service, well located out of the noise of the city centre but very close to it and close to the gondola to l'Aiguille du Midi. Very comfortable bed rooms with a nice terrasse.

A perfect mountain chalet. Lovely Alpine accomodations -- be sure to get a room with a balcony view of Mont Blanc. We actually could see the mountain peak from our bed. The Alps are spectacular and the location of Hotel L'Oustalet is perfect. Across the street from the gondola to the Aiguile du Midi and a 3 minute walk to the center of Chamonix village. This is rated highly on Trip Advisor for a reason -- book it while you can!

The staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke good English. It has free onsite parking which was great for us.

The hotel is centrally located, 1 minute from Aiguille du Midi cable car and 5 minutes from Gare du Montenvers railway.

The hotel was clean and comfortable. The beds were great. The TV had few English channels but the reception was sometimes poor. We were allocated a family room with had 2 bedrooms, one with a double bed, and one with bunks. It had a separate loo and full bath. We had a balcony with views over Mount Blanc.

A lovely chalet type hotel. Can recommend.
