“Wish I never stayed here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

Thought I'd be ok with shared toilets but they're filthy and always seemed dirty. You have to enter your room to wash hands after using them. The security is appalling. Side doors chocked open all night and shady characters were hanging around the carpark and main entrance at night watching people enter the room code (there are no keys or key cards just a pass code block that makes it difficult to conceal entering yor code). There is a review in French saying he had things stolen from his room and I'm not surprised. I moved before my planned 3 nights here. I felt like I'd get sick or robbed by staying. May as well stay in a campground.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

A recently revamped F1 clean and tidy and for less than £25.00 for a twin room just to sleep ok. My room was clean and fresh as were the toilets and showers. I would use Etap in preference to F1 but it was fully booked. FI was satisfactory. A good mix of clients of all ages and nations, this site does not suffer from being in a city so is used as a travelling transit stop. I felt comfortable and safe which unfortunatly is not always the case with F1 in urban areas. B.U.T. the local bus operator will get you there service L or P from near the Station to Pont de la Drance Euro 1, but do not run after 19.00 or on SUNDAY, its about 40 mins walk to town or get a cab ( As it was nice we walked both ways in the evening and to the station Sunday so dont know cab price ) would use again.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2010

Stayed on route to the alps for 1 night. As with all F1 hotels it is basic but at only 23 euros for a night including breakfast you cannot complain. Room was clean and fine for 1 night and breakfast was ok. It is a little way out of town so we had to drive in as it was very cold. Be aware toilets and shower rooms are shared in F1 hotels so if this is an issue don't go to them.
