I used this place as the base for a week's solo skiing in the heaven of La Grave. It's a couple of miles up the road from the ski lift, but it's served by a bus and lifts from the Guides de Montagnes (if you're lucky).

An affordable, clean, friendly hotel at a breathtaking location. Rooms maybe a bit small but very clean. Breakfast was very good and more than enough. Dinner was excellent, great wine! Love to come back to this place!

A very clean stay on the way to Grenoble for the Tour de France. Functional but typical small rooms and amenities. Needed to be creative in finding a good spot for my large suitcase. Separate areas for shower and toilet. Some street noise from the nearby road (my room faced the highway) but very quiet in the evening. Earlier breakfast... More
