“Not that impressed. Will not be returning.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2011

Stayed here for 3 nights between Christmas and New Year so room v. expensive. The hotel (if you can call it that - it's actually more like a hostel) is too far from the slopes to walk, so you need to take your car. Problem is, the hostel only has two parking spaces! Alternatively, you can take the free shuttle bus, but it was slow and was always packed.
The rooms are on the small side, but the beds were comfortable enough and the heating worked fine. The bathroom was tiny and needed an update.
The meals were OK, but a bit disappointing considering the price. We were expecting better. Breakfast consisted of cereals and a slice of baguette with butter and jam. No cooked breakfast was offered, and I was refused a second slice of baguette each time I asked.
Finally, I agree with the other reveiwers that there is a problem with the soundproofing in the hotel and we were woken up by other guests arriving late, talking in the corridors, slamming their doors, etc.
Chamrousse is a great ski resort but I recommend finding somewhere a little closer to the slopes, or make sure you get a good price for your stay!

Had a fantastic time in Chamrousse staying at Auberge du Virage...
We found our hosts, David and Barbara extremely helpful and friendly.
Chamrousse is a very French Ski Resort, and being a non French speaking Australian, it was very helpful to have hosts who not only spoke English, but wen't out of there way on several occasions to make sure we had a great stay.
Our Room was Cosy and Clean with all the basics you need for a good night sleep after a day on the slopes. The food was great, and if you ask really really nicely, David cooks a mean Spaghetti Bolognese! which goes down great with a selection of local beers brewed on the Mountain...
