Le Seizena
Ranked #8 of 12 Courchevel B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 1, 2014

What a lovely find! The staff could not have been more helpful. Before we arrived all emails were handled promptly and professionally. Our welcome was the same. The location is easy. The rooms for a family of four are a perfect size and set up. Beds super comfortable. Not huge but large - but this is France and this is 3 star prices!!! Separate bunk room at no extra price! Bath AND shower. Rooms spotless everyday. Restaurant once again open and the food is wonderful. The lounges are welcoming. Drying room ground level. A wonderful B and B and would highly recommend. It's exactly what it says it is but with a touch more! No daggy pine here! Just lovely staff in a lovely hotel.

Room Tip: No lift but a bag lift. Rooms that face the valley are quiet. Take the biggest room you can afford...

This is not a hotel. In any shape or form. It serves breakfast but has no restaurant or crucially, bar. The result is an odd, soulless 'lodge' sort of feel to the place - we barely saw and indeed did not speak to any other guests - it felt like staying in one of the those chain places in an airport? The room was fine - but just fine. A family room had one bedroom (with not a lot of floor space), a bunk room (ditto floor space) and a bathroom. The location to be fair is great - across the road from the main 1650 gondola. The staff were very willing but the chain which runs this place needs to sell it as a B&B - which it is. We dont really spend much time in our room on a ski holiday but even so - it needs to have a bit more comfort to it. The views out of the back rooms are great though. But for the price - I would not really recommend. I would spend a bit more on a better place or less on a genuine B&B.

Nice spot at 1650. The reception was nice and hospitable. Our room was perfect, size, amazing view, nice furnishings. The night staff ( one lady) was SUPER! Would definitely stay there again, in a room with that view, breathtaking!

Room Tip: Stay on the valley side

We have just returned from a lovely stay at Le Seizena. A B&B really rather than a hotel but room was great, not brand new but clean and all one would expect with a great view in our case. Breakfast was better than expected having read other reviews here - usual buffet inc. various breads, crossaint, toaster, yoghurts, fresh fruit, cereal, and even that day's newspapers - but also hot food on request for extra £. Easy location for bubble up 1650. All staff were very friendly, polite and helpful. I guess the fact it has a steam room is good but don't get too excited!

Room Tip: Valley rooms smaller but still fine with fab. views.

Will start with a qualification - I have been coming to this hotel for nearly 10 years now and I like it. But on the flip side I hope that gives me a degree of experience. The first thing you notice about this hotel as a repeat guest is the staff do not change much - that means happy staff and happy staff normally equals good service. I always stay in a valley view room which gives you views down towards Courchevel 1550 and the valley below - the view is one reason but also for a skiing holiday perspective the morning sunlight acts as a great first lift wake up call.

It is also worth highlighting at this point I have stayed in this hotel with friends (all male group) plus with my partner. The experience is the same in all cases with an extremely friendly staff and great comfortable rooms. If you are travelling with kids there are family rooms with a separate set of bunk beds.

The hotel is the sister property to K2 which unless you own an oil field is a little out of most peoples league. However the benefits of that partnership carry over with great amenities in the rooms, bath robes, condiments and toiletries etc. The rooms are always spotless and the decor is clean, crisp and a million miles away from the typical Savoyard themes of most places in the area. The hotel has an aeronautical theme, I thnk because the owner is a pilot. This theme carries throughout the property from the reception, the salon and the breakfast room.

Breakfast is included and this is more than ample ahead of a days skiing with typical french patisserie, cold meats, cheese and cereal all on a buffet basis. Coffee, hot chocolate, juices.

After a hard day on the slopes your gear is safe in the secure ski locker and what is more tired legs only have to cross the road from the base of the lift station to the hotel. The entrance is also 15m from the bus stop to 1850 and 1550. Tired limbs can soak up in the steam room and for those that evidently didn't ski hard enough there is a cross trainer - in 10 years I have never seen anyone on it!!!

In terms of the staff all languages are covered and this year, amazingly there is a Chinese speaking receptionist.

All in all a fantastic well priced hotel in a lovely resort which is made excellent by kind, attentive, polite and genuinely nice staff.

Room Tip: Book early and ask for a valley view room.

We stayed here for 1 week in january. The location could not be better as its just at the bottom of the slopes. The room was clean and comfortable, we had a room with a bath and it looked out over the valley. Breakfast was okay but could have been more choice of warm food.

The hotel is 3 stars and we did not expect too much. Maybe part of the charm of Courchevel made our stay in Le Seizena better than the service and quality of the hotel in itself. Whatever, I do not think you will be disappointed at all. Family rooms for 400 euros the night at a 3 stars hotel might seem a robbery anywhere else, but at Courchevel everything is so expensive. That is why I found Le Seizena such a good value. Well located at Courchevel 1660, you just cross the street and find the escalator that takes you to the slopes. Breakfast however, was a little bit disappointing although fresh and tasty (but not much of a choice). But the personnel was great: being a small hotel they remember your name from the hello to the goodbye moment.
