Stayed here for a long weekend ski trip. The room is of decent size and the room is 'ok', nothing to shout about, but it is clean and beds are comfortable. The view is great though as you can get a glimpse of Mont Blanc from the room balcony and also the big square.
Location wise, it's great as the bus stops to all ski locations is just outside the hotel. We didn't eat or drink there so can't comment. The people at the reception is also not very friendly IMHO.
Another thing that bugs me is that I paid online €109 for the room but outside it clearly advertises for €89! So, if you are willing to take the risk, just turn up or maybe call the hotel direct. I have no idea whatsoever why the rate is different, but I am a firm believer in free market so I accepted their offer online and that's it.
Will I come back here? Not for a long ski trip, but I might consider for short trips as it's quite central.
