“Very friendly, great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012

What super people. So friendly and couldn't do enough to help. After a nightmare journey from Geneva we were very late, but they still fed and watered us to the hilt! Room was a little small, but it was a ski holiday so not much time spent in it anyhow.
Great food, nice wine and superb location.

Pretty much repeating what others have said.... great little hotel just outside the Tufs lift and within 5 min walk to bars and restaurants. Free wi-fi. Clean and tidy and very good food which you can help yourself to so no portion control!! Sebastien and Jules are so friendly, efficient and fun. Jules is brilliant on the guitar in the evenings!

One negative in my opinion - no shower (only a shower attachment). So - Note to Sebastien - Please install proper showers!

Hope to be back next year....!

Stayed here with our two boys for a weeks skiing never having stayed in a hotel whilst skiing before. After booking this 2* hotel we were presented with 5* service by the wonderful staff led by the magnificent managers, Sebastian and Jules. Food was great, location too but the real high point was Jules' guitar strumming in the bar! We will definitely return - thank you for a fab stay!

It may only have 2 stars but the Hotel Vanoise surpasses this with the excellent service. Sebastian, Jules and the rest of the staff are very friendly and go out of their way to ensure that the guests have a most enjoyable stay. The food is good and they have a wine list to match. Justin Bieber also makes occasional guest appearances in the bar!! Recommended.

As with the children's story of "the little engine that could", this little hotel demonstrates what hard work and optimism can achieve. The rooms are on the smallish side (by North American standards), but the quality of food and service are excellent. The price of the room, as well as the wine, was very good value! It only has two stars on the outside of the building, but the experience is more like four stars. The location is perfect for skiing; central for ski in and out. The hospitality exhibited by Jules, Sebastian and the rest of the staff was exceptional; they really are talented at bringing light and warmth into a concrete structure at the top of the French alps. I stayed for ten days over New Years 2012, and will definitely return, as well as recommend the hotel to others.

Recently stayed for 6 nights and this hotel puts many higher starred others to shame. The rooms are nice - good enough, the food is very good and the service and staff are excellent. OK the lounge is small, but quite frankly streets ahead of catered chalets in the local area especially given the reasonable price - no silly school holiday price inflations. If you want a small good value hotel you could do s lot worse!! Good wine list too!

Stayed here for a week. The hotel is in a great location, you go out straight to the Tufs lift. Dinner is a buffet, plenty of food and very tasty. Room was a good size and there is free wifi and the TV in the room has a DVD player. Jules and Sebastien run the hotel and they could not be more helpful. Also make sure you head to the bar after dinner to hear Jules on guitar - superb!
