Au Coeur de Megeve
Ranked #17 of 38 Hotels in Megeve
Reviewed 27 January 2014

We were in Megeve to ski and the hotel, located just a short walk from the main lift, was perfectly positioned for us to enjoy the slopes. The decor is romantic and the hotel looks great inside and out. In fact Megeve itself is a very nice looking town.

Our room was just lovely, but we had to make a bit of a fuss to get what we had booked. The first room we were given was pretty small and right opposite the noisy hotel elevator, and the staff weren't particularly interested in putting the mistake right. In fact they weren't that interested generally. The service really lets this hotel down. Our room wasn't cleaned the first day because we had moved rooms, the service in the restaurant was slow and unsmiling, the reception staff were polite but cool.

Having said all that, we would still stay here again. We had a lovely time, and the standards, if you set aside the slightly uninterested service ethic, are high.

Rooms are rather tight, so not much place to put the luggage. We were on the motorcycles so consequently number of bags had to be all over the floor. But I found the rooms very very cosy and romantic . Bathroom and toilet (separate rooms) was also decorated with artistic tiles. If you a coming by car cannot approach the lobby, as it is located in the pedestrian area. We had to park the bikes in the big underground parking- unfortunately no discounts or special price for hotel tourists . Hotel has a nice restaurant with street terrace. Would recommend this hotel for couples .

This hotel is nice, but in a town which is clearly built for tourists (somewhat like Vail in Colorado), hugely pedestrianized the hotel has no car park and you can only get close to it and then have to drag your luggage. The car parking offered is in the Casino car park at €2 per hour during the day.
The hotel itself is very nice and the staff pleasant. The town is good if you want to eat and drink with lots of bars and restaurants, the rest of the town is made up of expensive designer shops, just like Vail.
My wife liked it I am not convinced.

Room Tip: Don't expect to be able to see Mont Blanc this hotel is in the centre of town

We are a family with two young boys. We were a little bit apprehenssive checking in at the hotel Au Coeur de Megeve for three week, during our Summer vacation. But our stay at au coeur de Megeve became a memorable souvenir for us, because of the profesionalism of the staff. Starting from the front desk people to the rooms service ladies, the service was impecable. Even at the restaurant we felt very welcomed. They helped us feel so confortable during our stay that we felt home. We will be glad to stay at hotel Au Coeur de Megeve again.

Room Tip: Ask the stall about the rooms and what you expect.

Coeur de Megeve is indeed in the heart of town, in the pedestrian area behind the church. All wooden floors and fires downstairs; my room on 1st floor was warm and well enough fitted out, with just a shower, but that's all I needed (we were in a group of 10 guys for a ski weekend), and water was hot and powerful. Nice breakfast (€13 extra). Megeve is very chichi and expensive (Hermes shop just round the corner!), and hotel reflected this, but none the worse for that. 5 mins walk to the nearest ski lift, with rental shops available. Also 5 minutes from covered central carparking.

We stayed here one night to enjoy the delights of Megeve..we were not disappointed. The hotel receptionist was very helpful and accommodating. We were given the 3rd floor looking straight out onto the main street...and up to the mountains. you have about a 5 min walk over some cobbles from the nearest Casino Carpark ...there is no road directly up to the front door as its right in the heart of Megeve..naturally as per its name!

There is a lift but you have 3 steps up to it and then on the floor you have another 3 steps down to your floor but the rooms are VERY homely,clean and the bathrooms perfect and what you need. Could have done with a bit more space in the room with our large 2 suitcases but really wasnt a major issue at all.

You are within minutes from the ski lift, all bars, nightclubs, restaurants and shops..if you want central this is THE place to be. Im told they only book one week minimum stays in the winter months as they are so busy and then release rooms for separate nights at the last minute.

There is a lovely restaurant downstairs and a lounge with a fireplace where you can relax if you dont want to be in the room. The bar is here and seemed that it would have a very good ambience in season.

I would definitely come back here for local, comfortable, homely and clean accommmodation very centrally located.

Room Tip: Nearest car park at Casino but in the winter months you will have to pay.
