“This was a real disappointment”
Reviewed February 18, 2009

This hotel quite surprising has good reviews on tripadvisor. I spent 1 night here, and that was enough. First of all we could not find the entrance to this hotel!! We spent about 30 mins walking around in circles. We thought we would go to the reception of Hotel Amelie next door and ask. It turns out you have to use their reception. They gave us our key and code. On entering there was no atmosphere since there was no reception within this hotel. It also had a synthetic overpowering smell. The rooms were extremely basic. I would not mind paying hostel prices for this, but we were definitely overcharged. The room was big and presented ok. But extremely basic. The bed was terrible to sleep on and its the worse nights sleep I've had. There was a plastic matress protector which meant we were very hot and sweaty and every time we moved it made a horrible sound. The toilet and bathroom overall was clean. But the shower head was flirty....completely full with fungus. The least they could do is buy a new shower head from ikea. The town itself was very quite with only 1 pub and a casino. At a weekend, we were lost for things to do in the evening. I would have picked the hotel next door, Amelie over this one. This place had no restaurant and we paid for breakfast and didnt even know where we were meant to have it? Maybe next door in Hotel Amelie? There was no reception to find out. There was no parking and had to use public parking, quite a walk away to take suitcases. It was ok as a base to go to Courcheval. However overpriced and not very basic. I would not stay here again.
