In summer you might be the only one staying at the hotel, but food was good, the swimming pool hot and the surrounding excellent when the sun is shining.

good hotel with extra large rooms,balconies, and sensational views. Staff very helpful. Only downfall is cost of dinner and breakfast, a bit expensive for what you get,although food is good. Great location for beginners slopes, 30 second walk, and easy bus ride to other venues.

A very cold, sullen greeting. The hotel is a bit worn but OK for a few days. There is an excellant restaurant, Les Delices, about 5 minutes walk towards the centre. Wonderful food, friendly staff.

The Chris-tal was a lovely hotel. Travelled with my boyf for short skiing trip before xmas. Les Houches very pretty area, great for getting in and out of Chamonix, good bus service. Hotel was very clean, spacious, great pool area. The staff were very friendly and the hotel has a very cosy feel about it, particularly given that it was christmas time. My only complaint would be that breakfast was not included in the price unlike many hotels, we only became aware of this after we had booked. The breakfast were 9.50euros which i thought was extortionate. We had breakfast on a couple of occasions, it was ok but we were only served a boiled egg together with cereal, ham, cheese etc. Given the price it would have been good to have a more substantial hot meal. Apart from this we were very pleased with this hotel but would probably not return simply because breakfast was not included in price.

The breakfast should be of better variety for this price but the quality was fine. The staff is typically polite and helpful only if they are asked to.

We had a hard time finding the hotel. It took us much driving up and down the streets. The directions should be more explicit. The view out the windows and off the deck were outstanding with Mt Blanc in the backgroud. The breakfast was excellent with many offerings in a single price buffet style.

Excellent hotel! Very good room, fantastic mountain view, helpful and competent employees. We did not hear the nearby autoroute because of double windows. Next time we shall definetely choose this hotel again.
