The folks at Le Refuge are wonderful. Very French too which is hilarious and warm all at the same time. Very clean and very close to the gondola (right across the street). But be aware it's not "ski in/out" you have to take your skis off and walk across a street. Not a problem though. This was the very first... More

During men's weekend stayed in this hotel. Very good service and friendly staff. Breakfast buffet is extensive and everything provided. Relax-opportunities after sports day is also delicious with a good sauna and wellness! Price\/quality ratio is very good. Will definitely stay here again when we go skiing in Tignes. 4 friends from Netherlands

Spent 7 days during January 2015, chose this hotel based on its extremely high rank at the time (8.7), and I have to say it is still not ranked high enough! The best hotel all around, reasonably priced, here is my experience: Pro's: Best location in town, step out and ski (lifts all around), go to ski lessons, get your... More

Stayed in this hotel with a buddy for a long weekend skiing. The hotel was pretty much perfect in every way. Good (if a little sarcastic) staff, good varied continental breakfast, clean and functional rooms, decent spa facilities including 2 hot tubs, but the very best thing about this hotel is the location, if you want to stay in Tignes...

We had the best stay in Le Refuge. It is almost as if the whole ski resort revolves around it. The bus to Espace Killy stops right at the doorsteps. Although ski lifts are also within walking distance, we couldn't take advantage of it as it has not snowed enough (the least snowfall in 20 years apparently) for us to... More
