“Great Lodging!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

Quiet, charming and cozy hotel with reasonable prices in Pralognan-la-Vanoise! I enjoyed a lot! It's not fancy, but the rooms are very comfortable, well decorated and have good bathrooms. My room also had a great view from the mountains! The housekeeping service's really good. The mattresses guarantee a good night's sleep. The restaurant is good, so it's a great option if you arrive tired from a ski day. The location's not at the center of the town, but it's walking distance. Would definitely stay there again!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

we found this to be a pleasant place to stay and believe Pralognan is a wonderful mountain village which has not been over-sold to commercialism (as in some other locations) probably due to the absence of a large scale Ski infrastructure.

Epicea Lodge is more functional than charming but do not be put off by this description. the rooms are spacious and clean and all the plumbing works fine. the staff and management are friendly. We opted for half board and found the food to be good. There is no choice of menu if on half board but each of our evening meals were satisfying and distinct from one another and the prices are very reasonable.

The dining room lacks a little atmosphere (maybe some background music would help) but the friendly young waiter makes up for this by providing the necessary character, therefore our evening were always enjoyable.

As a base for brilliant hikes with good food and clean quarters, we can recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Room 16 has windows on 2 sides for more panoramic views but no balcony
