“Probably one of the dirtiest places I've ever stayed”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

One removed from a youth hostel but not as clean! Superb location and good breakfasts with as much as you can eat but didn't enjoy being faced with a filthy bathroom, dirty towels and a sanitary bin still full from previous occupants. After finally acquiring clean towels we thought we'd take a shower only to find there was no hot water. Tried again in the morning - cold. Tried again that evening - luke warm. And so it went on until, fed up with our complaining, we were offered a key to the sauna where we found two rather grotty (but hot) showers. Strange how the hotel's owners chose to install a spa bath, sauna and multi gym in preference to improving the efficiency of the hot water system!

There was no shortage of entertainment. The walls were so thin that nothing was left to the imagination and the crowd of drunken Belgians who we're drinking and smoking below our bedroom window had a fun time until the police were called in the early hours. How strange that the 'hotel's' manager did nothing to move them away! Perhaps this was somehow connected to the management being Belgian.

Some good housekeeping and basic investment is all that's needed to make this a cracking place to stay but until they get rid of the torn sheets, muck under the beds, useless hot water system and smell of stale tobacco, it will remain a dump.

We had a large group stay at this charming hotel just a week ago during the Tour de France. It was a positive experience in every way. The managers are a friendly husband and wife team from Belgium and they and their staff went above and beyond to keep our American clients happy. The rooms are rather basic as this is a 2-star hotel but I found them to be very clean and many had balconies with spectacular views of valley and dramatic waterfall. Breakfast was excellent: served in a cosy room with vaulted ceilings with a good selection of hot/cold foods. The hotel is managed by a Dutch-Belgian tour company so you can expect a number of smokers outside and quite a few dutch-language country music songs around the bar at night. I found it more entertaining than annoying. The hotel's location is perfect: right in the centre of Vaujany and just steps from the main lift to the ski resort at Alpe d'Huez. We would certainly come back next year for the 2012 Tour de France stage in Alpe d'Huez.
