3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

I went skiing with my brother for the first time just before Christmas 2013, I had no idea what to expect from the hotel, but he had stayed there many times before!
Yes the rooms are basic, and yes it can be quite noisy but it is in the perfect location and I would definitely stay there again!
Breakfast is rubbish to be fair but if you wanted something more substantial you don't have to go very far.

After staying in the hotel in the 2012/13 season, I can say I would recommend this to any of my friends, the room was clean and tidy, it is very basic but we came to meribel to ski not sit in a room all day.

The slight problem is that if a band is playing downstairs it can be heard all the way up to the top room.

Very close to ski lifts, bus services etc. I couldn't fault the hotel for the price we paid to stay there for a week

Room Tip: I would pick the room on the top floor, as far away from the bands playing in the pub at the ground...

Well, for people who already know Meribel and 3Vs: this is just another small and clean hotel for skiers on budget. Definitely not cheap in high season (you are in Meribel!), VERY basic, very well located in the middle of the village near the tourist office, very close to the ski bus (Meribus), ski rent shops, other shops, pubs, apres ski etc. All in all, not bad if you are not going to spend too much time in the room. Very good for weekends, for me. Last but not least - there is a well-organized transfer service from the airports around, e.g. from Geneva, both private and shared.

In case you still need some hi tech stuff like TV and WiFi in the room - you better look around.

Breakfast: ... hmmm ... It's available.

Room: big enough for solos and couples, clean. Noisy - sometimes.

Details for skiers: there is a ski (?) room in the hotel, but, again, small and not equipped by the ski boot warmers. Just leave your stuff there and close the door. Not sure that your boots will be dry next morning (never tested).

Room Tip: Think twice about what do you need and what are you going to do in Meribel ... do you REALLY need sp...

Don't get me wrong - I have stayed in some wonderful 5 star luxuries and this is NOT one of them.

However, in terms of being close to the ski hire places, lifts, pubs, bars, clubs, live music, lots of fun a drinking - and free carb loading breakie in the morning, you wont go wrong here. If you like Spas etc, look elsewhere. Want to ski all day and party all night, then this is your ticket!

Very friendly (and attractive) staff!

Very close to the slopes but just a bit scruffy and poor as a hotel really. Especially for the price.
Meribel is like Britain on the slopes and is as you'd expect with loads of slappable middle class kids who need their trousers pulling up.
Tolerate this place if you're on a lads weekend. Under any other circumstances steer clear.

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.

Room Tip: Book another hotel
