Hotel Doron
Ranked #8 of 16 Meribel B&B and Inns

Ok granted this is a very basic hotel but if you want somewhere to get your head down on a budget after skiing and partying hard, this might just suit you. The hotel is above Le Pub one of the main Après bars in Meribel. It is also next to an escalator that takes you to one of the main pistes into town.

We stayed in this Hotel for two nights. They seemed to last for two years. The hotel is run down very tired and dirty, see my pictures. The music on the first night was played at full bass until four a.m. the second night it only went on until two but luckily you could actually hear the music as opposed to the thump of bass. Our room was on the top floor with a fantastic view (the only positive of this stay). Previous people have said it was basic !!!! Believe me it is dirty and unhygienic please see my photos. Our bathroom was so narrow that is was physically impossible to sit on the toilet unless you sat on sideways. The shower had mould in the bottom the curtains and carpets were stained horribly again see my photos. Below our window was a decking area which had a basket ball net affixed on the roof below our window so you can imagine the noise this created. I would personally say this hotel would be over priced even at €40 a night We booked a double room only to receive two single beds pushed together. There was no tv no phone no iron and only one socket in the room. The continental breakfast was absolute minimum. The staff in the "restaurant" which is actually Scotts Bar were very friendly and helpful and to be fair the food we ate one night in there was ok. In my opinion unless you are aged between 16-22 don't stay at this hotel, far nicer places at far more reasonable prices can be found. Doron is purely trading on its location, it needs to up its game.

The hotel is very basic, but that's reflected in the price. The location is brilliant, just up an escalator to the side of the hotel and then you're on the pistes. However, the hotel is very noisey, due to a bar and a nightclub beneath it, with the latter going on until 3am. Fine if you plan to be up that late, but otherwise, make sure you have earplugs. Probably not appropriate for couples wanting a quiet time away.

Room Tip: get a room high up and towards the front of the hotel

Just back from a 4 night stay at the doron. The accommodation is very basic but what this place lacks in luxury it more than makes up for with it's fantastic location that is amazingly convenient for both the slopes, that can be accessed from the escalator about 10metres from the front door, and many of the resorts liveliest bars, two of which, Scott's and The Pub, are in the same building. In truth the rooms are getting so worn that it is has gone past charming and the place is in need of a lick of paint and some new beds at least but it didn't stop our fun both on and off the slopes. If you do stay here then be sure to remember that you can ski down to the lift pass office at The Chaudan from the top of the elevator before you buy your lift pass and save yourself a walk down the hill carrying your gear

Stayed at Hotel Doran recently for a long weekend. Perfect location - smack bang in the middle of the village. All the bars and restaurants easily within walking distance. Scotts Bar underneath, ok but quiet whilst we were there. Le Pub (the nightclub) underneath also which was a great place to end our evenings. Has live music which is superb BUT one night the rock band (who were fab) didn't stop playing until 2.45am. Grand if you want to party till then but if you're staying on the first floor above the club, no point going to bed! We were on the top floor facing the back, with amazing views of the slopes. The hotel is approximately a 10 minute walk to the main bowel, Le Chaudanne, or you can get the free bus which stops virtually outside the hotel. You can also go up the escalator right beside the hotel and ski down to le Chaudanne which is a matter of minutes and you don't have to be a brilliant skiier to do it. If you like your ski trip to be a good mixture of skiing and boozing, then this is the place for you - its not 5 star luxury by any stretch of the imagination but its perfectly acceptable, clean and positioned.

Room Tip: Ask for the top floor!
