The apartment itself was quite funky: there was a cuckoo clock on the fake brick wall paper and a table covered in graffitti. There was a daily delivery of food in the evening, which was made to a good standard. In the mornings, museli and juice was available. There was a small fridge and microwave to heat up food. This would be better value if there were 6 people but the apartment would have been cramped with 6 people as 2 people would have needed to sleep in the bed sofa in the lounge. The other room had 4 bunk beds. The shower was a little basic. There was a ski store are in the hallway and a lift up to the apartment. The slopes were about a 4 minute walk through the village on the flat. There was a good TV/ gaming and film store which was good for the evenings. There were a few board games too such as chess. The cinema was just over the road and showed films in English. There were several good local restaraunts and bars for different price ranges. The ski pass shop was within spitting distance and the pass included an entry to the local pool which had some flumes for kids. There was a separate decent sized pool in there for serious swimmers and a gym. You could pay extra for entry to the spa. I would recommend bringing your own towel for the pool as otherwise you need to rent these. There was also another hotel down the road which had a small spa and massage. There was no free parking outside the apartment and the weekly parking fee was quite expensive so you need to factor this in if you are bringing a car.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to SnowPod, a ‘hotel-apart’ located in Tignes. A bit of a hybrid; part-hotel in the serviced offer we provide; part ‘street-boutique’ in its design theme; part ‘play-pod’ with the ‘toys’ we have put in it...and always so much more than ‘...just an apartment’!! Independently run and with design features such as graffiti art, shagpile, salvaged finds and cheeky details... SnowPod is strictly fun, edgy, irreverent and ‘on it’. ... more less
