Beware this party hotel
Posted Jan 28, 2015 on Hotels
I went to Val Thorens for a week of skiing. While the hotel needs some serious TLC, it is generally clean and the location is good for getting right on the slope. The location is at the end of Val Thorens, so if you intend to go out to the bars or restaurants each night you may want to go some place more central or up the hill.
My main complaint is that there is not telephone in the room. I am an extremely heavy sleeper, but was awoken on three nights by drunken kids running around, screaming or banking on doors. As there is no telephone in the room I finally got out of bed on the third night, put my clothes on and had to go to reception...but when I explained that I was upset because of the noise the staff seemed ambivalent about my problem. When I spoke to them again about my concerns at check-out, they blamed the problem on drunken British kids, rather than their sad excuse for security.
