We had problems with our baggage and the owner couldn't have been more helpful. We were very pleased with the service

Hôtel Chris-tal, Les Houches
The hotel is cute, rooms are dated with uncomfortable beds, the kitchen is useful, the balcony has a fantastic view. Small but clean pool. A lot of traffic noise in the night. Weak wifi signal could be reached in the stairwell. The room met our needs. Overall is cute but definitely not fancy.

Excellent value!
We very much enjoyed our 6 night stay here. The room was great value for money, and access to the pool and sauna was appreciated, especially after a day on the slopes. Staff are all very friendly and welcoming. It had everything we needed, although the WiFi connection was poor at times in our room. Very short distance to the bus stop which heads to the main ski lifts in Les Houches and also Chamonix itself. Would definitely return!

A good short stay
We needed a 2 night stay on our way via to Geneva and were surprised to find rooms avaiable in the middle of French school holidays. The staff were friendly, the hotel was well positioned and albeit it the decor a little tired the rrroms were very comfortable.

Ski hotel that works well out of season
Nice Hotel in good location for a stopover or exploring the Mount Blanc area. The family room we had was well equipped, may have got hot if the weather had been warmer as no air con. Pool looked good, food was tasty and well served. We would certainly stay there again!
