Amy Adejokun Section editor

Just opposite the Chamonix train station, the Gustavia is a very friendly hotel with a largely Swedish clientèle. Ideally located and famous for its wild 'after ski' parties in the bar, this lively 3 star hotel is great for fun-loving holidaymakers. It is thus not for those looking for peace and quiet!

    Location 8.49 /10

    The Gustavia is located opposite the SNCF train station, 300m from the town centre. There are a number of bars, shops and restaurants in the immediate vicinity.

    Accommodation 6.90 /10

    Out of the 50 guest rooms in the Gustavia, 42 are twins (two single beds, about 20m²), which is a reflection of the hotel's clientèle; mostly young Scandinavians. The hotel also offers 3 singles (18m²), 3 triples (30m²), and 4 double rooms (25m²). There is only one category of comfort at the Gustavia and all of the guest rooms are equipped with the same amenities: a flat-screen digital television, free Wi-Fi, and a hair-dryer, but no minibar or safe, although there is a free safe at reception. Some of the (small) bathrooms have a bathtub, while others have a shower. Lastly, 12 of the rooms have a balcony with a side view of Mont Blanc. The furniture is a bit old but the bed linens were updated in 2012 and the simple decor in the rooms is pleasant enough. The guest rooms on the 5th and top floor are loft rooms.

    Overview 7.90 /10

    Built in 1890, the Gustavia has always served as a hotel. It was taken over by the Langley group in 2002 and underwent a full renovation. The lobby, where guests receive a warm welcome, provides direct access to the lounge, which is equipped with sofas, a piano and a television. On one side is the buffet dining room where breakfast and dinner are served, and on the other is the famous bar/restaurant 'La Chambre neuf', one of the most popular bars in Chamonix in the evening. The guest rooms are spread over 5 floors and are serviced by an old lift. The decor in the corridors consists of beautiful black and white ski photos hanging on the walls.

    Food and drink 6.50 /10

    Breakfast and dinner are served at the restaurant in a rather small room, considering that the hotel can have more than a hundred guests staying at one time. It is a lovely room, though. Breakfast is a copious buffet of sweet and savoury, and hot and cold options that will satisfy young sports buffs. In the evening, the Gustavia proposes international cuisine, also in the form of a buffet.

    At lunch and dinnertime, the bar/restaurant La Chambre Neuf (the 'C neuf' for regulars) also proposes an à la carte menu (salads, burgers, pasta, Thai chicken etc.). Very popular in the evening, concerts are regularly held at the bar. A drunken and festive ambiance.

    To know

    Along with 7 other establishments in the Alps, the Gustavia is owned by the Swedish Langley Hotels group. While 40% of the holidaymakers are Swedish, this is also true for 80% of the staff.

        Très bel hôtel, bien situé car à proximité de la gare de Chamonix et du centre ville.

      • Advantages

        Equipements (wifi etc). Proximité avec la gare et le centre ville. Présence d'un bar très sympathique au rez de chaussée.

      • Disavantages

        Le bar est assez bruyant le soir. Il existe un "jour" en bas de la porte de chambre qui laisse passer la lumière du couloir, pas très pratique pour dormir quand il y a du monde qui passe tard le soir !

      A Relais & Châteaux institution in Chamonix, the Hameau Albert 1er remains the upscale reference for accommodation at the foot of Mont Blanc. The restaurants, the spa, the rooms...everything is up to par for the cosmopolitan clientèle attracted to this chic but laidback ambiance. Only the site itself, alongside the railway track, isn't quite up to scratch.

      A chalet offering an exceptional view of Mont Blanc, the Auberge du Bois Prin has recently been awarded 5 stars and will delight those who like their privacy, tranquillity and fine food. You won't find ostentatious luxury or an endless number of facilities here, just comfort and peace and quiet.

      There's a refined atmosphere to this modern and cosy hotel. In terms of facilities, the Best Western Le Morgane is one of the most comprehensive hotels in Chamonix with its spa and gourmet restaurant. It's only fans of traditional alpine decor who won't find everything to their liking.

      The Grand Hotel des Alpes has been one of the historic places in Chamonix since 1840. We were completely won over by its central location, warm welcome, grand lounges, newly renovated guest rooms and amenities. Both a distinguished and friendly hotel.

      With 107 guest rooms, Les Aiglons Resort & Spa is one of the big establishments in Chamonix. Its spa and heated outdoor swimming pool are particularly enjoyable. A modern, comfortable hotel with very good facilities but sorely lacking in charm.

      Both standardised but faithful to the spirit of an alpine resort, the Prieuré is a large 91 guest room establishment. It may be functional but the decor and layout of the areas give it a touch of warmth. Unfortunately, it is located very close to the road.

      • Location 9.07

      This is the biggest hotel in Chamonix, both in terms of the size of the building and the number of guest rooms. The Alpina is a functional hotel where the guest rooms and panoramic restaurant afford a fantastic view of the town and Mont Blanc. It's a shame, though, that the establishment as a whole is somewhat lacking in character.

      • Location 9.82

      Transformed in 2011 from a 2 to a 3 star establishment, the Faucigny is a charming spot in the centre of Chamonix. The laidback ambiance and the Scandinavian-style decor make for a cosy hotel where a feeling of well-being resonates. The only thing we were disappointed with was the size of the rooms, which aren't always exactly functional.
