For a family of three, I was pleasantly surprised at the great value we received at Le Cristal this January. We stayed for two weeks and whilst this isn't a hotel, rather self catering apartments, the atmosphere and general staff reception and attitude couldn't have been better. Neat and very alpine in fittings the apartment are small but satisfactory. Initially the linen was incorrect but the staff were quick to rectify the oversight. You will need to walk up the road a little to purchase groceries but Argentiere is quaint and welcoming. Do stop and purchase from the local produce stores... Great cheeses, breads and sausages. The bus stops outside the block so very convenient to get to the slopes. Withan indoor pool, the kids were able to relax after a active day's skiing. Coming from South Africa and facing a rude exchange rate this part of the trip was a wonderful surprise in great value and satisfying experience. Thanx Le Cristal... !

I always have been travelling in France, since I was born, with my family. We used to go in Chamonix’s valley, in the Alps. One year, my parents decided to go to a different hotel, and they chose “Le Crystal d’Argentière”. It is situated in Argentière, a small village near Chamonix. It is a great place to, go for a walk, because the scenery is wonderful and there are different levels of hiking paths.

Le Crystal d’Argentière is a 4-star hotel with a big indoor heated pool. There are also a billiard table, a library, a common lounge and a wellness area. The staff has always been nice with us during the three years we went there. They are really helpful and efficient.
Every first day of the week, there is a special evening organized, where an organizer come to tell the guests about all the activities available around the hotel. There are special activities for children, in which a lot of strangers go. It is great because children learn about different cultures and languages. There are also a lot of sports available, such as rafting, climbing or even paragliding.

Around the hotel, there are several good typical restaurants. It is also possible to go to the station to take a train in order to go to Chamonix, a great city, or to visit other places in the valley.

To sum up, Le Crystal d’Argentière is a great place to go to because it offers a lot of entertainments, and because it is situated in a wonderful place where there is always something good or new to do.

Apartment was all done out in chunky wood and created a nice mountain ambience. Two reasonable size double bedrooms but would have been a bit crowded for 5/6 people if you used the sofa bed in the living room. Found the receptionists helpful and on arrival (when reception was closed) found envelope on desk with instructions so we could get in our apartment and check in later. Very welcome after a long trip.

Apartment was clean and instructions in apartment book clear about cleaning, opening times, loss of keys etc.. Enjoyed the swimming pool but would agree with other reviewer that it could do with being a tad warmer. Normally open 9am to 7.45pm but only from 5pm on Saturdays.

Complex is on the main road through Argentiere, while not the M25 the traffic did affect the quality of the mountain air when sat on the balcony.

Bus stop right outside complex - can get timetables from reception. Also, railway station directly opposite for trips out. Nice 6k easy walk from Argentiere to Chamonix along the river. Lovely area.

Room Tip: Go for the bigger apartments if you can afford it. The 2 bedroom apartments for 5/6 would probably be a bit cramped. Might get away with the smaller ones if you have young children. Try and get an apartment facing the Mt Blanc massif - much better views.

Things I liked about these apartments.

Our apartment (MB1) for 7/8 people had three rooms, one ensuite, loads of living space and balconies looking both up and down the valley.

The kitchen had a full oven,microwave, large fridge freezer, dishwasher and more than enough plates,cups,glasses etc.

It was very warm without the heating being on.

Walking distance to the Grand Montets ski area.

Fabulous restaurant Le Petite Vert next door.

Swimming pool for those with the energy (usually the kids!)

Friendly reception staff.


Things I wasn't too keen on.

Wifi only available in reception for a charge.

All the apartments are different and it can be a bit hit and miss as to where you are allocated.

Covered parking is a little pricey at 40e per week but we always managed to find a space either in the outer parking area or across the road in the station car park.


Despite the small negatives, we love this place and will be returning again and again.

This was our 4th visit to Le Cristal d'Argentiere Apartments, though our last visit was Summer 2008, so we hoped it would live up to the standards of our previous visits? Yes, it did. I have given 4/5 overall as there are some small signs of age (1995), but I would still recommend this for a family visit. This was our 3rd visit skiing. The staff were all friendly and helpful. On this visit we stayed in the Grands Montets Rm 14, which was on the 3rd floor and on 2 levels. Level 1, 1st double bedroom (small), small kitchen, small bathroom with shower, spacious lounge with balcony looking towards the Grands Montets. Level 2, bathroom with bath / shower, 2nd double bedroom (largest bedroom) and 3rd double bedroom. The 2nd bedroom is to the rear and very quiet. There is a bus stop just outside the apartment which has a regular service up and down the valley ( e.g Le Tour / Domaine de Balme, 15-20 mins on bus) and across the road the train station. The bus and train is free to guests staying in the valley (you will be given a card at checking in - your ski pass will also work for the bus). In the village there are 2 bakers for fresh bread in the mornings and a small supermarket for most of your needs, all within easy walking distance. For a break from self-catering there is a good selection of restaurants in the village, We were 2 adults and 2 teenagers, there was plenty storage for all our stuff and lockable ski lockers in the basement. The teenagers enjoyed the swimming pool after a day’s skiing.
