Reviewed February 27, 2013

I stayed here for 5 nights to go skiing. Short walk from funicular and station, friendly staff. Enough breakfast to last you until lunch. Only slight downside as I am a light sleeper was that Room # 1 had some road noise.

Really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Arolla. Rooms were very pleasant - stayed in room 9 which is a nice family room with bunk beds for children. The owner Jean-Michel very friendly, and extremely helpful to make sure our stay was enjoyable. He very kindly let me use his PC and helped me purchase a couple of tickets for Lyon v Spurs game. Hotel is conveniently located - approx 7 minutes from funicular which operates every 20mins or so up to Les Arcs 1600 from where you can catch ski lifts, buses to the other ski areas. All shops restaurants in Bourg St Maurice are also no more than a 5 - 10 minutes walk away. For ski hire I used the nearby InterSport there was a very helpful guy there (Yanik). Overall summary - children were very upset when we had to leave and come home - they wanted to stay for longer. Would highly recommend & hope to return one day for another visit. Many Thanks

Room Tip: All rooms looked good... but room 9 particularly good if you have children as they have small bunk b...

This is a simple hotel. In a great location only a 10 min walk to the station (which runs Eurostar service to London) and a 7 min walk to the the funicular to les acr 1600.

The customer services is friendly and polite (better than most 4 star hotels) English speaking too. Room was cleaned well, good temperature but slight small (didn't bother us). Free wifi was quick and easy to setup though a web browsers (for mobie, tablet or laptops) using it now to write this review.

Overal great hotel and well worth the money! Need more hotels like this.

The title says it all. Great value. Very helpful, very close to the train station, ski hire/storage, funicular, shops and restaurants. Bourg St Maurice was quiet in a quiet week after new year. Ski Hire at Polaire Star was great (English people) and really helpful. Les Arcs had heaps of terrain to ski and very affordable at 41 Euro per day. I would happily stay again.

Room Tip: I chose the premium room which was perfect for a couple or single. Recently renovated.

We stayed at the Hotel arolla for one night in September. We arrived by bicycle and were welcomed by the very friendly, English speaking owner. There was a secure bicycle storage room which lessened our anxiety.

The whole hotel has been recently renovated. Our double room was very well finished with a modern bathroom. Heating and ventilation was great allowing us to dry our cycling clothes.

Breakfast was served in the dinning room and was excellent for cyclist embarking on the Col de Petite St Bernard.

Bourg St Maurice is a great base for cycling or skiing and we heartily recommend the Arolla.

Room Tip: Do not be put off by the photos of the exterior. This is a great hotel.

We stayed here 1 night on a 2 week motorbike tour through Germany,France and Italy. I don't normally bother to write reviews but was moved to as I really agree with the other reviews that this is a great find. We stayed in 7 hotels and this was one of my favorites. Great value for money, really nicely decorated, centrally located. The rooms were not massive but had a really cosy feel. The owner was really friendly and accomodating but was also not intrusive.

He also helped recommend parking for the motorbikes which was less on the main street and under shelter

My wife and I found this place by accident a couple years ago when driving through the Alps in the summertime, and we liked it so much we went back again this year. It's been totally renovated, and a good place has gotten even better. The owner is very nice and will be happy to give you advice on sites or day trips (by car or by bike!).

Room Tip: We had a room on the top floor and the view of the Alps was fantastic.
