On a low budget ski trip to the resort of Savoie grand Revard I stayed in this hotel with my two teenage children.
The hotel for sure is low budget. We only paid EUR 39 per room per night. The beds were more comfortable than expected. Usually the beds in France are rather spartan, these were nice.
The water of the shower was of enough pressure and nice and warm. The wifi was okay, staff nice enough for a low budget hangout and the location of the hotel well based with respect to supermarket, pėage and the mountains. Another great part is the secure parking lot.
There are some negatives too though.
We had asked for a room with 3 single beds. There are only 2 of those available in the entire hotel, both smoking. The first room assigned was so smelly that I didn't want to put my two asthmatic kids in those so we settled for the second.
As the hotel welcomes smokers and the French still smoke a lot, the entire hotel smelled like a bar from the 30s.
I've seen some reviews about renovation of the rooms. Apparently our room (number 12) hadn't been renovated as I didn't notice this to be true.
The towels are really really thin so should you really need a nice and fluffy towel; bring your own!
We don't complain however. EUR 39 is a really good deal so should you just need a place to sleep, a shower/bath to feel fresh and don't mind the smell of cigarettes this budget hotel is a good deal. Hey, it brings back your student travel days when you stayed in youth hostels! Great memories!!!
