4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

Yes, pretty difficult to find:) And worth it. We parked in the free town parking and went searching on foot. Just took a few minutes, and we were there and registered, and in our room. The room was indeed spotlessly clean, the bath spacious and bright, with a hairdryer and appropriate soaps. The beds were very comfortable, with good fresh-smelling linens and pillows.

We enjoyed delicious wood-fired oven baked pizzas from a nearby pizzeria...great prices, too. We didn't have breakfast at the Des Alpes, as we had a morning brunch to run off to.

The town itself is beautiful and picturesque...kind of what you picture rural French Alpine towns as being, but so often are let down. The drive in from Geneva in the fog and snow is worth a page in an adventure travel book. And this was April 21!

We'd be happy to stay here again, and plan to return to further investigate the town...which has two good supermarkets, if you arrive when they're open.

Room Tip: We toook what they gave us (Room 21), and it was just fine.

Finding this hotel by car is an adventure. Set right in the centre of town, along semi-pedestrianised streets, it is possible to stop outside the front door to offload luggage and get a key to the hotel's garage which is a couple of streets away and provides another adventure! Madame provides a clear map to get you to the garage, after you have checked in.

The hotel itself is spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated throughout. We had a room at the back, by request, which was totally quiet with a distant view of the mountains. Breakfast was ample and served in the reception area. Very friendly sttaff.

We drank at the Bar across the street and ate at a pleasant restaurant in the next side street. Die is a lovely old town.
