Amy Adejokun Section editor

Built in the 1970s, the Carlina was completely renovated in 1990 and in doing so became a 5 star establishment. However, and despite its significant assets, the Carlina is not up to the same level as the other establishments in the 1850 resort. The hotel could actually use some serious revamping. It does benefit from a great location at the base of the slopes, though, and a slightly outdated but charming decor.

    Location 10.0 /10

    The Carlina is located in Courchevel 1850, at the foot of the Bellecôte slope. It takes a few minutes by shuttle or by car to reach the centre of the village.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    Although the 63 guest rooms here are all different, the difference isn't great enough to be really noticeable. It is mostly a question of size and orientation. The standard and superior rooms, and the suites and junior suites have all been decorated in the same way. Slightly outdated but still charming, a few charming elements have been added to modernise them somewhat, like the fur rug at the foot of the bed. The rest of the furniture and decor (lots of wood and flowers) really seem like they belong in the last century, and that includes some of the beds. We're of the opinion that every object has a life span! As for the amenities, you'll find all the classics: a safe, minibar, flat-screen television, etc. Although we really appreciated having a bathtub and a shower, we were a little less fond of the weak water pressure and the absence of a shelf on which to place the shower gel and shampoo provided by the hotel.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    Accessing the Carlina is a bit of a chore in itself, as there are many steps to be climbed. Two flights in fact! Once you reach the top, you arrive in the lobby that leads to a large and bright lounge area. Be careful you don't go to the wrong desk: on the right you will find the concierge service, where for some reason the keys are kept, and on the left reception. On the ground you can still see the hotel's former logo and its original 4 stars. Incidentally, we were wondering if it wouldn't have made more sense for this to be a great 4-star hotel rather than a less than perfect 5-star hotel. It's not that it's not a great place, but it is a little outdated compared to the other establishments in the resort. The hotel offers all of the facilities you would expect from a 5-star hotel, it's just that they're not as up to scratch as they should be. For example, the well-being centre disguised as an affordable spa and the very outdated games room.

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    The Carlina's restaurant consists of a huge dining room that can seat 120 people. This is where all the meals are served. First there's a buffet breakfast from 7:30am to 10:30am, then a light lunch menu (meat dishes, omelettes, fish, etc.) from 12:30pm to 2:30pm, and finally dinner from 7:30pm to 9:30pm, which consists of a salad and dessert bar plus the choices on the menu that fall under the half-board formula. Although the choices and the quality are there, the service could use a little tweaking. The servers may be friendly and try to do their best, but our dishes still arrived cold.

    To know

      Opened in December 2009, the Strato is not just another 5-star hotel in Courchevel 1850. Carefully decorated in a modern-country style, the establishment boasts a Michelin star restaurant as well as a superb spa with a view of the slopes.

      Although you may see many luxury hotels in Courchevel, you won't see many palaces. In fact, there are just two: the Cheval Blanc and Les Airelles. Opened in 1992, the establishment is also catalogued by the luxurious Leading Hotels of the World chain. With its charming traditional decor, its Cellcosmet spa and its restaurants, including one with 2 Michelin stars, Les Airelles deserves its distinction. This is a great place to stay, provided you can afford it!

      • Location 9.81

      It's hard to recognise the Hotel Les Grandes Alpes, one of the oldest establishments in the resort, since it underwent a complete renovation. The establishment now offers a concept that is unique in the resort: apartments with a well-being centre and hotel service. Here, instead of rooms there are apartments, the smallest of which measures 150m². Don't bother looking for the restaurant as the accommodation comes with its own fully-equipped kitchen.

      At a time when luxury hotels are popping up all over the streets of Courchevel 1850, the Manali is the only 5 star establishment in the 1650 resort. Far from the bling of the ritzy shops located at the highest point of the villages, the Manali rigorously holds onto its secrets, and what secrets they are. Other than the impeccable service and the irreproachable cuisine, the establishment has a decor and a theme all of its owned dreamt up by its owners. Add to this the two level 'Cinq Mondes' spa and no doubt about it, the Manali is one of our favourite places in all of Courchevel!

      Opened in 1958, the Lana is an institution in the Courchevel resort. Renovated every year, this 5-star establishment is still under transformation, notably in a handful of bedrooms and its indoor swimming pool. However, the rest of the hotel was renovated as recently as 2010. A member of the Tournier Group, in the same category as the Saint Roch, the Saint Joseph and the Pralong, the Lana also benefits from an ideal location at the base of the slopes.

      It all began in 1963 when a young couple purchased a small chalet with 9 guest rooms. 50 years later, the couple in question, Mr. and Mrs. Rochedy, are at the head of an institution with 41 guest rooms, one of the largest spas in the Alps and a Michelin star restaurant. The Chabichou may have chosen to rank itself as 'only' a 4-star establishment, but its restaurant gives it an extra two, and makes it one of the most well-known and luxurious hotels in Courchevel, where it is a pleasure to stay or to at least dine!
