I've now stayed here 4 times with various groups. What you don't get with the tired decor and small dining area you fully make up with great food great staff great location and great price. Ski total have really got a niche slice of the market with this hotel and long may it continue.

The Champs Avalins is, without a doubt, the worst hotel I have stayed in. The hotel was unclean. Live wires were hanging out from loose, broken sockets. The staff tried to hide the fact steps had been broken, creating tripping hazards. The bed linen and towels in several rooms were unclean. Some of the guests I spoke to had found...

It's disappointing to note the comments made within your review of the Chalet Hotel Champs Avalins, LiraelEG. Albeit a basic property at the lower end of our independent 'diamond' rating scale, we have found that our guests are usually satisfied with the accommodation, which is in an excellent location in the prime resort of Val d'Isere. Your comments regarding cleanliness...

Location, staffs were so nice and helpful. Food was great! Ski hire shop was next door. Close to free bus stop. Very short walk to main ski lift and train to the mountain. Mountain view rooms are perfect and recommended.

The beds were always left messy by housekeeping. There was no hot water after around 5:30 in the afternoon which led to many cold showers. The food was not good. The room was very small and basic and was in need of maintenance as shown in the photos of the bathroom.

We stayed just before Easter 2016 with Ski Total. Our second time to Val D'Isere and the skiing was amazing. Ski hire shop and a supermarket is right next door. The hotel is almost ski to the door so well located and a regular free bus into town is great. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and the...

Read previous reviews for this hotel before booking so knew roughly what to expect. Yes the food is very good and staff were excellent but you would expect that level of service anywhere.

One of the best hotels I have ever stayed in, all the staff made us feel very welcome and the attitude was always positive. Cracking food and facilities and an ideal location to catch the first lift. 110% recommend it to others. See you soon!!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In common with the rest of Val d’Isère’s La Daille area, the hotel might not win any awards for the cutest or prettiest exterior in the Alps, but as with all properties, it is the location that really counts! And that’s where the Champs Avalins really scores. You can ski back to within just 50m of the hotel, and each morning you have a choice of lifts right on hand to whisk you up the mountain. ... more   less
