“Great location, helpful staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

We have just returned after staying here for 1 week. The hotel is in a perfect location, hard to get any closer to the slopes and surrounded by a huge variety of restaurants.
The staff are so helpful, we arrived after reception had closed, but there was no trouble getting to our room and we were allowed to just check-in the next day. They are always available to answer any of your questions or if you want to know any tips for good ski runs. Considering there are only about 4 staff members, they always make sure that there is plenty of food and drink for breakfast and that your rooms are cleaned to a good standard.
The hotel is basic and the main road outside can be noisy at about 3/4am, but it is a 2 star hotel in a beautiful resort, I suppose you get what you pay for. Our room had lovely views over the mountains and there is a Spar supermarket opposite for any snacks to take up the slopes. The ski room is very secure and there is ample room for everyone's skis and boots.
Overall I think the staff and the location really make this hotel well worth the money. And who I there to spend the whole week in the hotel anyway, most people are there to spend the days up the mountains!

The hotel is in a perfect location. The rooms are clean and warm. The maintenance really needs sorting out though, as some things don't work and plug sockets seem a little dodgey.
The staff or the two staff that where there when we where, worked hard to keep us happy.
They seemed overworked which can't be good in order to keep a good hotel running well.
Zorha the hotels management seemed to work early mornings to late nights and is a great representative for the hotel. If Zorha wasn't there I am sure there will be a lot more complaints.
The hotel is running at two stars but that is only because the staff are keeping it afloat, without the minimum staffing the hotel has got the hotel would surly be closed.
It has potential to be a good two star with better maintenance and more staff.
I would go again but it would nt be at the top of my list for budget hotels with the current problems.

On the limit of acceptable but overall very good for its location, staff, wifi and happy hour - less than 3mins walking to lifts, right in center of Couchevel 1850 - if you're going to stay in Courchevel but cannot afford the price-tag, this is a good option - very friendly staff, great happy (2-for-1), free wifi, basic but decent breakfast, excellent hot water and heater - if you're skiing hard, all you need is a place to crash, right? Right!

Room Tip: We had a room away from main street b/c they said it would be loud from the bars, but Courchevel is...

Excellent value, excellent location and fantastic staff. It's two star so don't expect the Ritz but the rooms were warm, clean and comfortable, the slopes were a 2 minute walk and the staff looked after us very well indeed. My only criticism would be that they don't serve food other than breakfast but theres no way that the staff could fit this in as they seemed to work 24/7 as it was! And with so many good restaurants minutes away it didn't really matter. Had a fantastic time and would defintely stay here again. Thank you :) Claire and Andie x

The staff and attitude is amazing. Best people! Will stay here again for sure. They are doing best with what they have. Rooms are clean and spacy. Breakfast is really good and you can be a little late- they still won't leave you hungry! Zora, Cindy and all others- big hug!

For the price ur paying in courchevel, its a pretty decent place, our room was ok, as many said it could use some refurbishment, also had some friends complain that theirs had much smaller beds so i guess we were lucky with our room. The staff was very friendly and the manager really does her best, very generous and helpful at all times. the bar is small but a nice place to hang out for a beer before heading out (might also be the least expensive place to get a beer in courchevel). overall i say its above average for the rate your getting in such a location.

The photos say it all. Dirty, cold, not secure. not 2 star. Not safe.... Plug sockets hanging from wall. Balcony grating locked closed and broken, hence no daylight . Photos provided. When we arrived alarm bells rang as other new arrivals were complaining that the room had not been cleaned from previous guests. A guest on the stairs warned us "your not going to like this". The staff tried their best but they could not fix electrical problems. As one touched the socket hanging from the wall, her colleague commented "I wouldn't touch that if I were you" but my children were expected to stay in that room.
