Stayed here on a weekend ski break, booked last minute and they were very happy to provide a stay for a weekend only - which is quite rare in Val D'Isere.
Firstly, I was astounded by how good the location was. Although Val D'Isere is never cheap, this place was reasonably priced - so I was surprised it bang in the centre of the village and just 200 yards from the lifts. You could ski to about 50 metres from the front door.
The other best thing about this hotel was the service. The couple who run it couldn't have been more helpful, were very attentive, and just really friendly. This really makes a difference.
Wifi is available for 1 Euro for 23 hours.
There is no lift, so if you're on the third of fourth floor you might not like climbing the stairs.
Breakfast was excellent - continental buffet of a very good standard.
The bathroom was clean and modern. It had a hand-help shower in a bath, which wasn't as good as having a normal shower. There are showers downstairs, that you can use after you've checked out on the last day.
The hotel has a very good bar downstairs - 5 Euros for a beer - that is lively without being wild. But you've got dozens of options for nightlife and restaurants all on your doorstep anyway. There is also a small food takeaway downstairs - which I heard very favourable reports on from locals - the curry and burger are meant to be amazing, as the places has a very well respected local top chef running it.
You get 20% off at the hire shop across the road - which actually works out cheaper than booking online either directly or via Skiset in advance.
In short, a great place to stay - and several locals commented they advised visiting friends to stay there.
In one of the worlds top top ski resorts - Val D'Isere is top three ranking - and I will definitely return. You can get a return bus from Lyon airport for €90 - which departs several times a day including late evening - book via Altibus.
