    I recently stayed three days at this hotel for a ski weekend.

    The staff was incredibly welcoming, with genuine smiles and prompt answers to any questions or requests. The same goes for the restaurant where service was great.

    The room was small (as always in such places) but very clean and, contrary to the usual mountain places, didn't reek of humidity. Everything seemed like it had been recently refurbished. Obviously, not all rooms will have the same configuration and even though mine was more suited for solo/couple, it had a wonderful view over the valley below and a nice balcony (of which use is limited in winter time but still nonetheless quite enjoyable).

    Access to the chairlift is easy enough without too much of a hassle. Unless you are looking for a direct access to the slopes (ski-in, ski-out), then the Arcadien is convenient enough. It's less than 1 minute away from the Combettes lift from which you can reach the Mont-Blanc/Cachette lifts easily.

    The jacuzzi/sauna/exterior bath came as a wonderful surprise and were the perfect way to end a day skiing. None are particularly big and they couldn't compete with full-fledged spas in modern ski resorts but I never had to way for too long to use them. The hotel is small enough not to have a rush of people at the same time in the jaccuzzi.

    Buffet breakfast is fairly standard but honest. The same applies to dinner, especially if you are going for half-board, where the meals may not be fine cuisine but are still a much better offer than the usual atrocious fare served in the other restaurants around.

    Overall, I recommend this hotel as it is exactly what is expected from a more low-key, quiet ski area such as Arcs1600.

    Room Tip: room 109 is small but has a beautiful view.

    I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. It has recently been refurbished in a local Savoie style. The hotel is located quite close to the slopes, up a few steps to the nearest lift which started at 0915 and giving access to the other two nearby chairlifts. The shopping area with a supermarket, ski hire, pharmacy and gift shops are about a five minute walk away and the funicular station is about 10 minutes walk.

    Breakfast was a buffet with cheeses, meats, bread, croissants, cereal, fruit and coffee. For dinner, the food was always well presented and of a high quality. Three courses were served and there was always a choice of two dishes per course. The potato/rice for the main courses are served in jam jar/preserving pots which is quite original. There is no menu on the table so make sure you brush up on your french food vocabularly. However, the choices are displayed at reception.

    The flat screen TV in the room does not have any English speaking channels, although this might be a blessing as you can avoid CNN. There was no safe in the room which I would have liked for kindle, iPad etc. I didn't use the spa facilities.

    If walking from the funicular station to the hotel with lots of luggage, it is easier to walk along the road around the main resort area. Check the map on arrival at the funicular station (hotel was previously known as Hotel Explorers as displayed on the map).

    Room Tip: Check the location of the hotel on the mpa before arriving at Les Arc on the funicular.

    Been there for a short ski and we looked for a hotel on the piste. That is not the case with Arcadien Hotel. You have to walk about 300 meter, upstairs and up to a talus. We were 4 adults and got a duplex room for 4 persons. That would be a good solution for 2 adults with 2 children (however, for little children, the stairs in the room can be very dangerous), but much to little for 4 adults with luggage. Also the ski-lockers were to little for 4 pair of skis. For snowboards it would be even worse. No possibility for drying your ski-boots during the night. No elevator in the hotel.
    The rooms for 2 persons were OK.
    Breakfast and food was OK, not more than that. Wifi available in the entire hotel. Friendly and attentive staff. We arived in the late evening and got a mixed salad. Take care: price of 20 Eur was charged on our account, much to expensive for what we got.
    Arc 1950 and Arc 2000 is much more attractive than Arc 1600.

    Located at the far end of Arcs 1600 village behind the ski school, a 10 minute walk from the funicular station. Almost ski-in/out but for a 50m walk. Rooms are furnished to look and feel like a traditional mountain chalet, has a built in workstation with free WiFi and a small wall mounted flat screen TV - channels are all french. Dinner is regional style with the rice or pasta curiously served in jam jars.

    Room Tip: Ask for the south facing rooms, they a nice view of the forest. If you have heavy luggage ask for the top floor, where the entrance to the hotel is as there are no elevators in the 4 level hotel.
