Unstaffed hotel. You run the risk of drunk yobs throwing a party and nothing will be done about it. False economy if you can't sleep as you'll be too tired to ski. Smelly corridors. Dogs and their excrement in abundance. But it's cheap if you want basic accommodation. Worth £40 a night, not much more. Be prepared for noise and no staff.

We booked The Cybelles Apartments with Cristal Ski Holidays under the impression that it would be perfect for a simple self catering option for a family holiday. Our room was filthy, the bedding and pillows we dirty, the kitchen was particularly awful with piles of greasy, smelly dishes in the sink and in the dishwasher. The TV didn't work, nor did the promised wifi. Cristal Ski agreed to refund us approx £1000.00 as we had to book alternative accommodation. No-one has been in contact despite several emails sent. One thing to be very aware of is that if Cristal Ski promise to reimburse you they have no intention of doing so.

We arrived at the Cybele on a Saturday evening in February 2019 for our family skiing holiday. We were greeted by two rude, unaccomodating women at the reception who spoke very little English and were very keen to take our deposit straight away, of 200 Euros. Once we got to our room we discovered 3 filthy beds, with no pillows and no bed sheets or duvets. We investigated this problem and eventually found an assortment of pillows, which were again dirty and included cigarette burns on them. We also found some thin blankets which were said to the be duvets. When we entered the bathroom, it was again filthy, and obviously had not been cleaned for many weeks. The toilet was not flushed or cleaned and the floor and bath was very dirty. The sink had dirty marks around it and a small space between the sink and shower was black with dirt. The shower, was almost non existent. The head of the shower was not even attached to the wall making it nearly impossible to stand and have a shower at the same time. Once one of us braved the bathroom and attempted to have a shower, it was soon revealed that after five minutes the hot water ran out and so the other two members of our party could not shower. The television and the wifi did not work and when we looked in the cupboards there were no plates, cups or bowls. They were all in the dishwasher, which once we opened, we found were all filthy, and stained. After putting the wash back on, all the utensils were just as filthy as before. Along with everything else the curtains were also hanging off their rails. Once we had discovered all of this we went back downstairs to the two ladies at reception. We asked for some bed sheets, duvets and towels, and begrudgingly we were given a couple of sheets and towels but still no duvets. By this time we had made it clear to our tour operator that we did not wish to stay in the Cybele for any more time than we had to, and we were quickly relocated to a much nicer accommodation just down the road. The next day after a day of skiing, we told the two women that we would be leaving, and wanted our deposit back immediately. The one woman at reception that we were speaking to, spoke such bad English that she made us to type into google translate on her computer what we were trying to say so that she could understand that we were leaving and wanted our money back. Overall we stayed at the Cybele for one night and were appalled at the state in which we found our room. We also did not receive our deposit back until nearly a week after we had left and this was prompted by a number of phone calls from our rep asking for our money back.

Cybele is basic & simple & tired looking however it does provide an ideal spot to stay if you are out skiing all day - Rooms were cosy & warm - small galley kitchen in the room but there are plenty of eating places near by so we never cooked in the room. A local baker sells fresh breads/pastries in the foyer every morning which is great. There is a pool but its quite dingy & tired & would not entice you to have a swim & is only open for 2 hours morning & evening The reception desk is only open a limited time each evening too

Cybeles is effectively four blocks of unattended, self-service, simple apartments, with basic, limited facilities, tired decor and a 'hostel' feel. The rooms are warm and the beds are comfortable, but have thin bedding and pillows; the ensuite bathroom is fine for 2-3 people and there's plenty of hot water. The kitchen end of the room is small, with a sink, fridge, tiny ceramic hob, microwave, toaster and kettle. There's a washing machine, but ours was missing its metal top casing - exposing the workings and electric wires. There's a little dining table and 2 chairs, plus a TV (French terrestrial channels only) and a small balcony facing the other apartments. We had a reserved parking space in the basement garage (there are few spaces outside), but that relies on other cars not parking in it (which they did to ours). One of the four blocks has a reception desk manned briefly for a few hours each day, but it closes early evening and the complex is unattended for the rest of the time. During our stay, the onsite restaurant was shut and looked out of use for months, the sauna and hot tub were broken and empty, and there was a small, dimly-lit pool for a swim. A side room (gym?) was flooded with water, unlit and had no equipment. The lift was broken for 2 days while we there. Brides itself has a few small bars and restaurants (which turned us away when they got busy), and you do need to accept that it's many miles from any of the 3 Valleys ski resorts. There is a great ski hire shop (Intersport) at the gondola, a ski pass office, Spar corner shop and a good pharmacy. There are quite a few hotels, and there's a thermal bath-house (though it starts at 30 euros for a post ski swim session). To ski, it's a 30 minute gondola ride to the lowest Meribel village point, or a 25 minute mountain drive to the lifts at Le Praz (Courchevel 1300) - if you have a car and get lucky with parking when you get there. It's a 40 minute drive to Les Menuires, where there's more parking. If you rely on the Meribel gondola, you absolutely have to catch that last one back (1700) as there's no other way down to Brides. There are no ski resort buses to or from the village. And - it's a long way back if you forget anything or like to take a break during the day. All told, if you're highly self-sufficient, need no extras, comforts or assistance, don't want to be in a ski resort and are content with a self-contained, basic and inexpensive hostel room to sleep each night, then Cybeles is fine. But - this is not a hotel, and you do have to manage your expectations.

We have stayed in Bride previously as it's less expensive than Meribel etc. These apartments are at the beginning of Bride and it's about a 10 min walk to the gondola although there is a free bus every 20 mins. Apartments are small but clean. It's not somewhere where I would recommend staying if you only ski a little as Bride is quite quiet and the apartments were furnished with essentials only. The swimming pool is tired and could do with a refresh. Apartments have a pull out bed and bunk beds but it would be a small space for 4. Kitchen had a hob , microwave, fridge, dishwasher. Cutlery etc for 6. Bed linen provided but we took our own towels. You can store your skis etc at the gondola for €20 although there is a room at the apartments. Gondola takes 20+ mins to get to Meribel. Room was warm and had plenty of hot water. there is a man who comes daily with fresh bread, croissants, pain raisin etc 0730-0830 in the reception area. Highly recommend large baguette €1.30. All in all it's adequate but don't expect 5 *.

Been here 3 times now. It's basic accommodation, but that's reflected in the cheap price. It has underground parking and a great little reception that's open 2x per day. Studios can sleep 4, but I'd recommend 3 max. Even then you will need to be close friends. The hotel is about 10mins from the gondala to meribel. There is a ski bus from outside that runs regularly. There is a ski shop onsite. The restaurant looks closed down. Noise can sometimes be an issue as walls are thin. Comfort really depends on the neighbours. We have been lucky but take ear plugs. All in, a great place to stay on a budget and of you expect basic accommodation. Sheets and blankets are extra cost. There is a €45 cleaning cost that we always pay rather than clean before we leave.

Writing this review as before my friend and I booked this holiday we couldn't find any recent reviews (although all the info about local places and services was spot on). Apartment was lovely - clean, spacious for 2, got everything you need. Reception only open 9-12, 4-6 so a slight pain but we went with crystal ski so they had our keys for a late arrival. If not with a company who can do this (or self drive) there is a nice coffee shop down the road if you fancy. The staff (mainly one woman behind reception) was very rude numerous times but just dealt with it really! There is a well stocked SPAR round the corner (5 min walk) alongside restaurants, bars, the ski hire shops and anther 3ish mins up a hill is the gondala station. There is a free shuttle that runs all morning and late afternoon if you don't fancy the walk but its not long :) The gondala is around 20-25 mins which personally I didn't find a problem at all. Overall I recommend the apartments and the place, its quiet in the evenings with mostly non-english people, last gondala is 5.30pm so can't really stay in meribel for a drink for long but it is nice! ONLY problem, although not a big deal, was the wifi isn't free and expensive (maybe £15 for the week i think) but we found a bar for 1 euro for 2 hours of wifi so just letting you know :)

I used Nexity to find the apt, and they were spot on. I noticed that a few people had written reviews about the Residence reception issues, so avoided those by checking on line - Nexity office in the centre of Brides stays open all day. Apt was on the 6th floor, Wifi was good for the kids, apt was clean and kitchen well equipped. Car parking underneath ideal, as we hired from Geneva on the first trip and then Chambery on the second. Apartment was clean and had everything we needed for a good ski trip. Didn't use the Olympic gondola every day, we drove up some days and left the car in the free parking at Mottaret right next to the Trout (Green Run down from Mottaret to Meribel) skiing down to Meribel centre and heading out from there. Good value overall and hassle free, definetly going back next year. We managed to ski in the 3 valleys for 6 days, and stayed the following Saturday and drove up the valley past Bozel to Champaney on Vanoise (Forgive the spelling if wrong) and skied in the Paradiski area for the day. (March 2015) The cycling holiday was good (with friends), plenty of climbing if you are into it. Heading down to Annecy and return, over the local Cols, climbing upto Valmorel and Val Thorens (End of April).
