Stayed one night at the start of our hike. Very friendly and helpful staff, lovely food and a clean and comfortable room with a balcony. I was disappointed not to have bought a swimming costume with me as the pool looked lovely.

We really enjoyed our stay. Nice Alpine feel. Excellent breakfast buffet. Rooms have balconies. We loved the pool for relaxing after hiking in the mountains. We parked downstairs and ate fondue at the hotel. Overall the place was a great value. We usually stay in Chamonix, and this felt less crowded (Les Houches is about 20min down the road). A... More

We were booking a bit late so unable to get a hotel at the foot of the ski lifts. We settled on this hotel and were very impressed. The facilities were really good and the food in the restaurant was lovely. The breakfast was great with everything you needed. I would certainly recommend this hotel but be aware you'd need... More

Stayed here over New Year 2015/2016 with friends. We had two of the apartments with kitchenettes on the top floor. Worked really well as we had all of the hotel facilities but a bit more space and freedom. Rooms were large and clean if a little dated. We ate in the hotel one night and the food was very good....

We went past this hotel/restaurant on the way to the slopes during the day, it looked quite cosy so on our way back, we decided to go in for a drink. The restaurant was empty, we sat down but shortly noticed that they have pool, fosball and table tennis downstairs so we moved downstairs. After we had a drink and... More

We spent Christmas week at Hotel Chris-Tal hoping to ski, the slopes did not deliver what we hoped for but the hotel and the staff made up for it. The room was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. But what made the hotel was the owner Florents attitude to providing a personal service, something that is lost with the... More
