The reviews below don't particularly make any sense as you're saying you got great value and everything you needed in relation to the price you paid, yet rating 1/2/3 stars? Hmmm. Anyway..
We stayed here in January 2014 for a week and in honesty this is a brilliant option for anyone going on a snow sports holiday and needing a cheap place to stay. Sure, this isn't the Hilton by any means, but as long as you book with managed expectations then you will have no problems.
Firstly the hotel is in a great location, right in the middle of Val Thorens (which is in one of the best ski locations in the world - The Three Valleys). You can technically ski in, ski out, but it's easier to walk the 100m to the main piste with your ski's/board.
There was plenty of hot water, all day, every day whilst we were there which is something not even most 5* hotels can say! Shower was decent and also had a bath if you should choose.
Rooms were quite small but had plenty of space for hanging clothes etc, and also a fold-away dining table.
Kitchen has a microwave, two hob rings and plates, cutlery etc.
Reception was generally closed, but there is a lobby where free wi-fi is available. There is a few takeaways and a supermarket just next door. It is also just a few minutes walk to the main strip where the majority of nightclubs/bars are.
The only bad things are that the room was slightly unclean - the carpets were scuffed, walls a little untidy, etc. Secondly, the walls and floors seem to be very thin, so I can imagine that if you get unlucky and have a loud/partying neighbour then it could be difficult to sleep.
All in all, we enjoyed our stay, and you probably will too as long as you book with managed expectations.
