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... More

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.....!)
