Hotel Guide to Alpe d'Huez

Discover insights about Alpe d'Huez hotels


Alpe d'Huez has a good selection of hotel accommodation ranging from four-star luxury options to the more cheap and cheerful end of the market. A lot of the hotels are centred around the main resort which is packed with nightlife and restaurants but there are also quieter places to stay in Les Bergers quarter of resort or down in some of the satellite villages

Hotels vs chalets & apartments

A double bedroom in the hotel

Chalets and apartments are usually the most popular accommodation options when it comes to ski holidays. They tend to offer more room, more flexibility in terms of catering and, sometimes, better prices. However, hotels are also a great choice for those visiting Alpe d'Huez, especially when you're not coming for a full week. 

Why book a hotel room instead of a chalet or an apartment in Alpe d'Huez?
The answer is simple: because you don't want to stay here for a full week. Even if apartment and chalet companies have recently made their booking requirements more flexible, offering shorter stays especially during the off season, the reality is that most chalets and apartments in Alpe d'Huez can only be booked for six or seven days. However, with hotels you can customise the length of your stay, from a weekend ski trip to a five-day holiday – it's your choice.

Hotels also tend to offer extended services and facilities: gourmet restaurants, spas, swimming pools, fitness rooms, tennis courts, cycle and/or ski hire, flexible catering options... the choices are endless.
