we were finding hotels on a cold and snowy night. burdened with our luggage, the task was no less an easy one. the price of the hotel was affordable compared to others and we were alright. coming from an urban country, the room was rather different and it offered us an interesting experience with its country style design. the hotel...

Stayed at this hotel for the weekend of 16-17th of November, 2013. We arrived around 9 PM, and the reception was closed. The room was small and poorly decorated. No shampoo or lotion, only a small bar of soap that was used for both the shower and the sink. Towels were over washed and scratchy. The bed was not comfortable... More

Lovely hotel, lovely room with balcony overlooking mountains, relaxing chairs and table. Comfortable bed, nice LCD tv, hand held shower was a surprise but did not cause a problem. Plenty of clothes storage space. Bar closed early at night, there are no restaurant facilities, and you let yourself back in using a door code. We found the place very relaxing,... More

The owner Guylaine is very welcoming (she offered to pick us up from the bus station - but this wasnt necessary as the bus... More

The room itself was grotty, it looked like it had been furnished from a charity shop, with very poor quality and cheap fixtures and fittings. The mattress was incredibly uncomfortable, bumpy and lumpy. Generally the hotel was more like a hostel. The bar is great, and buzzes in the afternoon, but it closes at 6pm. One of the reasons we...

Let me sum up our experience: 1. When we arrived we were greeted to an unwelcome reception by yourself. You should really learn some better manners. 2. When I made the mistake about the one day extra - you offered no solution, instead you made it a big issue. 3. When you go on holiday it is not common for... More

We needed to find a hotel to stay for a short break in Alpe d'Huez and Hotel les Gentianes did us well. We made contact through the internet and had to arrange a deposit payment in advance, which we did by an international bank transfer. We stayed two nights on our own and then our son joined us from Grenoble,... More

We stayed in Les Gentianes in early 2008. It is a family run hotel which offers bed and breakfast accommodation in Alpe d'Huez. It is located on a main road that passes between the areas of Les Bergers and Les Jeux, and overlooks three relatively adjacent roundabouts. One of it's selling points is that the sister of the of the... More

The location is great, a v short walk to the main lift base and an equally short walk to the village centre, shops, restaurants etc. We had an east facing room which was small but clean and adequate for a ski weekend when you don't spend much time there. There was no toilet in the room, which was a surprise.... More
