Hotel de La Couronne

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 August 2011

This is now our favorite place to stay in Chamonix valley.
Came across this hotel by accident, were looking for some last minute unplanned accommodation due to poor weather. And what a discovery!
This is one of oldest buildings (if not the oldest) in Argentiere. Very good location, quite close to Chamonix and many attractions in the area.
Very clean, the cleanest place we stayed at in the valley so far (price is not reflection of that let me tell you), the lady at reception (do not remember her name, shame on me) was so nice, great breakfast, and absolutely exceptional value.

We stayed here for 1 night as we were on a walking holiday doing the TMB. Very friendly staff and lovely rooms
We had an evening meal in the town (Dahu) which was excellent but there was lots of other options. The breakfast in the hotel was great
Highly recommend this hotel

The good:
Excellent location
Excellent breakfast (the standard French buffet but with extras - eggs, cakes, fruit etc)
Variety of rooms on offer at different price points, so can be quite economical (the little singles on the 4th floor were so cute!)
Nice downstairs sitting area
Looks very posh from the outside

The bad:
The lift can be abit hard to catch - only really an issue if you are on the 4th floor
Rooms overlooking the street suffer from the noise of the bar across the road on a Friday night (but close the window and you are fine)
Internet didn't work (but all the bars around had free wifi which could be connected to in some rooms!)

In summary - I'd absolutely return to this hotel. It's more basic on the inside than it looks from the outside, but well priced and perfectly comfortable. We stayed in a double for one night and a single for 2 nights (I returned alone to this hotel after our hike because I liked it so much). The staff are lovely, very helpful. Nice downstairs lounge to sit and work/chill out in. Rooms are quite variable, I would view before deciding. Our first room (a double) was a little small but our friends had a really nice big room just down the hall. My second room (a tiny single up on the 4th floor) was exactly what I wanted, even though the layout was very odd and the bathroom flowed into the room (quite literally when you take a shower......) because it was really cheap at EUR38, so hard when you travelling alone much of the time.

Room Tip: view the rooms - they are all different and different prices

Best restaurant around is next door, great bar opposite, cash point & supermarket & tourist info office. Really nice "comfort" room, good bathroom, view of slopes at Grand montets. Bus stops very close, 10 mins walk to lift station. Helpful friendly staff looked up snow webcams for us & kindly let us keep room beyond the check out time so we could ski on our last day. Free WiFi :-)
