Located in the heart of Chamonix, this informal, friendly hotel is perfect for enjoying the bustling resort. The Gustavia is a fine choice for a good value holiday with a relaxed atmosphere and great, varied food.

The hotel's original façade and tower have been impressively restored in 2017.

The nearby transport links provide an opportunity to easily access and see the rest of the valley and the Montenvers rack and pinion railway. The adventure park and toboganning run are also close by, as are the resort's many shops, museums, restaurants, cinema and sports centre with outdoor pool.

The buffet breakfast and set 3 course evening meal are taken in either the dining room or the informal Chambre 9 (low season) which is an atmospheric lounge bar and restaurant both located on the ground floor of the property.

The huge choice of outdoor activities (see our excursions tab) includes rafting, parapenting, mountain biking, climbing, horse riding and summer toboganning. In Chamonix, there is also a superb adventure park, a sports centre and a wonderful 18 hole golf course in Le Praz and mini-golf.

Offering a wide range of shops, cafés, bars and restaurants, Chamonix also has a cinema, casino and nightclubs.
