We had a great stay in Arc 2000. This hotel is great, the rooms are not big but functional and everything is there. The food is lovely we enjoyed every day from the food. For everyone there is something, pizza, pasta and salades are standard, the other dishes change per day! The spa is very nice after a day of skiing. The pool you can always use, the spa you need to book in advance but we did not have problems with this. To go to the pistes a short walk of 5-10 minutes is needed and then you are in one of the best skiing areas of France! We love this hotel and we would go back

We stayed at MMV last week (end of march 2017) we went on a family holiday however as a couple we got our own apartment. Both the family and us were lucky enough to get a room with a view of the valley.
The apartment was very clean on arrival.
It has everything you need except a cooker as it only has microwaves which isn't very helpful if cooking for a family.
Nothing bad to say about the place, the boot room was on -1 and easy to find. I liked that each apartment had its own ski cupboard which locked.
As we were facing towards the valley it was very peaceful but I can imagine if you were higher up than us or on the other side you might get noise from the bars.
We used the spa facilities as well- jacuzzi, sauna and steam room - all very relaxing. It was free for one person per apartment the rest had to pay.
The swimming pool was an ok size but just for families really, you couldn't do lengths for instance.
Overall it was an excellent self catered apartment with everything you needed. It is an excellent location to the slopes very quick to get to the lift.
Would definitely stay there again.

We really enjoyed our stay here. All the staff in all departments were polite and welcoming. The building was kept clean and so were the rooms. Room was small but nothing new for an alpine hotel and how long do you actually spend in it?? Buffet dinner and breakfast of excellent quality and a good choice. 5 mins walk to the slopes and ski hire in the hotel. Will be back.

We booked our ski trip very late and didn't check reviews first. Had we read the reviews we would not have booked this hotel. However, we were pleasantly surprised. Yes, the toilet is small, but the room itself was big enough, plenty of storage, and clean. Plenty of hot water but beware - temp can go up and down in a second (I guess if a lot of other people use at same time). This only happened twice but sudden ice cold / scalding hot is not great. The food was really good - I have a restricted diet but there was always something I could eat. Lovely salad bar every evening, and no dish repeated during the week. Be early for dining session though - especially at breakfast, tables are not cleared very quickly and you will struggle to find somewhere to sit if you go in the rush between 8 and 8.30. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. The Spa is a bonus - jacuzzi, steam room, sauna and pool, all free. Glad we took a kettle -especially grateful at 4.45 am on morning of departure, otherwise would have been hours before we could have a hot drink. We were on first floor, just one floor above bar, but did not experience noisy children/banging doors/pounding music as reported by other reviewers. Just one minus point - I asked for a hairdryer at reception (having checked reviews before I left UK) and was told they didn't have one, yet previous reviewers here say hotel did have one!! There is free wifi but we couldn't get it in our room - but no big deal to check whilst in bar in evening. We would definitely come here again.
On all the important points, the Altitude ticked all the boxes - we'd definitely return

Just returned from a week at the Hotel Altitude and we thought it was more than fine. I booked very late for myself and a friend, and since there wasn’t much available, decided to take the risk, having read some really dreadful reviews. I can only assume that the hotel has taken all the negative comments made, and systematically done its very best to address them. And you can't ask more than that. Starting with the bedroom: the size was nothing like as small as we’d been led to expect. In fact, there was plenty of floorspace. The limitation on the layout was the inter-connecting doors (handles removed) which presumably enabled the rooms to be used as family suites if wanted. Storage space was fine – the wardrobe door slides open across the entranceway, but is tidier than a curtain, and there were sufficient hangers and plenty of shelving. Outerwear could be hung on decorative skis on the wall, or over the bathtub on a rail with hangers. In-room safe was free-of-charge. In-room wi-fi was free, and easily renewed daily. Heating was good and could be controlled in-room. The décor is tired, and the colour-scheme dark (I’d taken a head-torch to read by, because of one review). But there were bedside lights by both beds, so head-torch not needed. The bathroom was clean; towels were changed twice as routine and the bathmat again when it was soggy (shower-screen could do with being bigger). The bathtub is small, but the shower was fine and water piping hot. There was a hairdrier and freebie toiletries. Next: the bar. Chairs and bar-stools were obviously new and – yes – there were children and an entertainment space, but it didn’t go on all night, and the childcare staff were obviously adored by the kids. We sat in reasonable quiet a couple of times, and there’s a large terrace with chairs and loungers if the sun’s still up. If the hotel is reading this, we thought there was scope for keeping part of the restaurant reserved for people who want to sit quietly after dinner – restaurant cleared at 9.30-ish. On to the dining. We thought the food terrific. Varied, plentiful, good quality, at both breakfast and dinner. Highlights were raclette, and sandwich-bags at brekkie so you can make up your own baguette for lunch – saved us a fortune on the mountain. For the timid, or picky kids, there was a pasta/pizza station. Did I mention, help-yourself wine included? On to other essentials. The ski rental was right inside the hotel, and the staff perfectly helpful. The ski-locker was spacious, if not warm enough really to dry boots, but very well-organised and secure. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. I asked about breakfast before our 5.00 a.m. pick-up and they offered to open the restaurant for us. Re. the spa, I used it once and it was fine - clean and stylish, with staff at pains to offer a complementary towel – again, I think this had been an adverse comment in a previous review. All in all, it’s a hotel popular with French families, which means children are included, but poor food wouldn’t be tolerated. On all the important points, the Altitude ticked all the boxes as far as we were concerned, and I would definitely go there again.
