Stayed at this hotel for one night - 2 rooms. Eclectic decor and grumpy breakfast person. When asked for additional croisant's when there were clearly insufficient for the number of diners we were told there were no more available. Not good enough.

We stayed here for 6 nights in February 2011. A great deal! The room was good sized, very clean, service was excellent and friendly. We skied every day and it was a bliss to have breakfast and dinner included (we paid 91 euros for two people with brkfst and dinner included). The main ski lift is just 5 minutes walk... More

I stayed at Hotel Christania in July 2011 for one week. We were hear with a group who were taking part in the L'etape du tour. On arrival my first impression was the rooms were very small.

We love this hotel. It is charming, cosy and extremely well run by the Paul family. The rooms are comfortable and tastefully decorated and the food is absolutely delicious. Its the perfect base for a family skiing holiday, well situated for all of Serre-Chevalier. Within easy walking distance from several cable cars/ ski lifts and right next to the convenient... More

When visiting our grandchildren over Christmas we stayed a few nights at this hotel. The chambres were quite smal and of normal standard and the beds too short for tall Scandinavians, but the atmosphere, food and service during dinners was amazing. The food was no luxery but very tasty and varied. Nice wines to accompany .

We spent a week during the Xmas holidays and our experience was actually far from our expectations. We were very disappointed by the food which was border line with a no-choice menu; by the cost of the wine (the cheapest bottle was 20 EU !); the dining places were very very narrow. Another very negative point was the daily room... More

This family hotel works in half board basis, this means breakfast and dinner included with a fix menu. Even though we have a fix (main) menu, we always give a choice for our guests. Whenever children do not want something to eat, we give always a choice. We adapt ourselves at what we have available at that moment also. We... More

I reserved two rooms for one night in August and three full weeks before the trip I had to cancel my reservation. I did so by email. This hotel uses an archaic French law that allows them to keep your deposit no matter when you cancel. It is called "Arrhes." Be careful with this. Luckily I am only out 100euros.... More
