Walked in with no booking & we were greeted by a fab (Dutch?) receptionist who gave us keys to view 4 double rooms. Shewad so helpful & her attitude was a major factor in our choosing this hotel. we chose two rooms which, tho a bit on the small side, were clean with en suites. we had a small balcony with views of Mont Blanc. breakfast good value at 10 euros well worth it. Attached to hotel is lovely terrasse with bar & restaurant with good food, 10% discount for hotel guests. Barman a bit terse. but overall a great stay.

Room Tip: Room at rear mid range with balcony. Some noise from nearby bars.

Myself and some friends stayed here while we were alpining in the area. The rooms are nice while not elaborate. Some have balconies and the views from the south side of Mt Blanc are sensational.
The staff are very natural and helpful and the place has a family feel. We required some unusual breakfast times and they were happy to help. Also they upgraded us from our basic economy rooms on 2 separate occasions. They also didn't mind when we dried all our mountain gear on the balcony..
My only criticism is that the street is noisy and this can affect the quality of your sleep. You could close the good quality double glazed windows but with no aircon, this makes the room very stuffy.
Location is the very centre of argentiere. A free bus runs to chamonix but stops about 1930 (the time, not the year). After that, if you stay out late a taxi back will knock you back 35 euro. Argentiere has a couple of good bars and restaurants though and is quite relaxed.

Room Tip: South side have a nice view.

We wanted a reasonably priced hotel close to the excellent skiing area of Les Grand Montets in Argentiere with a family room that would comfortably accommodate a family of 4. La Couronne is a traditional hotel with a lovely old-fashioned feel to it. Our family room (No. 1) was a decent size - 2 single beds pushed together with a quite large annexe containing bunks for the children. The bathroom is a little awkward in its layout (a bidet placed next to the bath means you have to climb in over the end of the bath - we could happily have done without the bidet!), but nothing that inconvenienced us too greatly. There was always plenty of hot water, the beds were reasonably comfortable, although the mattresses could benefit from being updated (the bunks were more comfortable). It was nice to be able to open the window to allow in some fresh air, although this did mean there was traffic noise early in the morning. There is a small balcony beyond the annexe with room for 2 chairs - we had poor weather, so didn't really make use of this, but it really is just for sitting out rather than eating. There was a fridge (extremely useful) and a table so it would be possible to buy food and eat in the room, should you choose not to go out all the time to eat. We had breakfast each morning for 9 euros each and we thought this was reasonable value. It is an eat as much as you like breakfast buffet with ham, cheese, cereals, eggs, breads, fresh fruit, excellent pastries and cakes. There seemd to be adequate seating and on one morning when there were no tables left, one of the staff instantly made up a table for us in the salon next door to the dining room. The salon is a nice place to sit in the evenings, to have a drink (bring your own - there's no bar at La Couronne), read, or play one of the many board or card games that are on offer. The staff were very helpful and friendly and all spoke excellent English. If you are skiing, there is a bit of a walk (about 15mins) to the Grands Montets lift. Not so bad on the way down, but a bit strenuous coming back up the hill! There are buses up the hill to the left of the hotel (a 3 minute walk) going to Chamonix itself or La Tour in the other direction, but buses to Grands Montets were less frequent in April (I think they run more often up until the end of March) and they are free with your lift pass or with a Carte d'Hote which the hotel will give you. It is possible to ski back to close to the church square opposite the hotel by taking a route off the final red run back to Les Grands Montets, then taking a track to the right through trees (signed for La Cremerie). It's a Langlauf trail and when we were there, did not have much snow left on it - but earlier in the season it may even be possible to avoid walking at all. Argentiere is basically one long road, so the hotel is within easy reach of a range of restaurants catering for different tastes and they're not too expenisve by ski resort standards. There are also several shops including a supermarket, tobacconist and pharmacy very close by.
We were very happy overall with our stay - the hotel suited our needs and budget. It is not luxurious, but it has a pleasant atmosphere and all the basics that we needed.

It's got a great central location in Argentiere, friendly staff, good prices and deservedly attracts lots of skiers who want to enjoy the area's top-class skiing. We stayed before and after heading into the mountains for some ski touring; they looked after our bags while we were away, and cheerfully rejigged things when our plans changed. Nice mellow atmosphere, looks and feels like the old Alpine hotel that it is.

The hotel is well situated in the centre of Argentiere and thus well positioned for swift access to the ski slopes of the Grand Montets. We stayed for four nights at a reasonable price and were comfortable in a quiet, clean room. The hotel has few facilities other those catering for one's primary needs but Argentiere is well served with shops, restaurants and bars. Breakfast is a buffet style and is priced separately but offers a good start to the day. Sylvia, on Reception, is delightful and always willing to help.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back avoid any late night traffic noise.
