This place was run down and grubby, and v overpriced. The bunk beds were ridiculously small, in a cupboard (like Harry Potter!) my 10 yr old couldn't get in his, and there was a nail sticking thru the ceiling above where his head would have been. He had to sleep on sofa bed in lounge. There were light bulbs not... More

We stayed here for two nights for a trip on the way to Tuscany! We had two young children and the apartments were perfect for the space. The apartments are clean and have everything you need. We did not use the kitchen at all but the cupboards seemed to have everything you would need. There were two bedrooms, one double... More

These apartments are a little dated and could probably do with some new beds but other than this they are fully equipped and of a comfortable size. Close to shops of agentierre and the ski bus stops outside, you can walk to the ski area but with a small child it takes a while! Great to have a pool with... More

We had a great family break here. We stayed in NB11 which was very close to reception and has a lift. It has a great swimming pool for the afternoon and some of the apartments have saunas which you can pay to use daily. I believe you have to pay to have use of the internet and that is only... More

We stayed at the Cristal Argentiere for a week of skiing. The apartment was huge and very comfortable. The ladies at the front desk were very friendly and spoke excellent English (and listened to our bad French). Ski lockers are great, as well as the nice fireplace in the lobby. The location is right beside the bus stop and gare... More

We had a lovely skiing holiday this February in Argentiere, but the size of the beds, much too narrow and short and the poor wireless internet connection let this otherwise nice aparthotel down somewhat...The location is however excellent, close enough to the slopes and very close to the village centre and restaurants. Both staff on reception were extremely nice, friendly... More

For the price these are decent apartments, usual French ski resort size smallish but sufficent I took a 5 person but really for 2 people comfortable 3 max. Road a bit noisy late at night with revellers and snow machines. Internet, car parking, sauna, kitchen cleaning kit are all extra and a bit of a rip off but the pool... More

Checking out tomorrow after a week here in this unit 10 GM at Apartment Cristal d'Argentiere. This is my sixth year renting various apartments in a Chamonix area. Booked it through Chamserve which cost more than booking this place directly through Lagrange. The heater in the unit did not work until the 4th day after calling the electrician...the personal sauna... More

For a family of three, I was pleasantly surprised at the great value we received at Le Cristal this January. We stayed for two weeks and whilst this isn't a hotel, rather self catering apartments, the atmosphere and general staff reception and attitude couldn't have been better. Neat and very alpine in fittings the apartment are small but satisfactory. Initially... More

I always have been travelling in France, since I was born, with my family. We used to go in Chamonix’s valley, in the Alps. One year, my parents decided to go to a different hotel, and they chose “Le Crystal d’Argentière”. It is situated in Argentière, a small village near Chamonix. It is a great place to, go for a...
