I was travelling alone with my two young children (4 and 6) for their first ever skiing trip (for all of us). The staff were friendly, caring and attentive. The rooms were cleaned everyday and the manager happily warmed milk up for my youngest late at night. They helped us find the ski slopes and gave us directions to various... More

Hotel was in a good location right on the main road but main problems were in the staff and lack of attention. Rudeness was commonplace and quite an effort seemed to go into this by a couple of the older staff. The fire alarms went off in the middle of the night twice in my five night stay with no... More

This is an excellently-run hotel, opened 150 years ago and run by the same family for over 60 years. The mother still regularly (wo)mans reception. It is the best of the best of it's kind, with good secure parking, ski room, a very innovative arrangement with the restaurant next door (excellent quality - best in Argentiere - and good value)...

We stayed here 5 days in March, and the location couldn't have been better. 10 minute walk to Grands Montets lift, lots of restaurants and cool bars within steps of the hotel front door, and we avoided the tourism hustle and bustle of Chamonix town by staying in Argentiere. With an awesome dry room for storing skis, plenty of parking... More

Decent basic hotel with very good location in Argentiere. Walking distance to great skiing on Grand Montets, 100m to the supermarket, 100m to Tourist Bureau, 100m to the Mountain Guide office and The Office (Brittish bar) just across the street. Nice restaurant with good food in connection to the hotel with 10% discount for hotel guests. Rooms are quite basic... More

Stayed at the La Couronne for a week in February. The hotel has a great, central location in the middle of Argentiere, quite the perfect base for a skiing holiday. Beyond that, nothing special. Free wifi. Breakfast, rooms, service, etc all adequate.

My son and I had a very pleasant 4 day stay at Hotel Couronne in February. It is a great hotel for this type of break, central location, nice breakfast and very helpful staff. Very good service to offer a shower room for guests who have also already checked out but are doing a days skiing. We had a lovely... More

Stayed here several times and really like it. Great location, reasonable restaurant and very amenable staff. Good compromise between comfort/luxury and tolerance of smelly outdoor types. Could do with a better bar - but there are others nearby. Showers so good they hurt, nice historical pictures including of now-shrunken glaciers (global-warming sceptics note).
