Residence Les Olympiades Val Thorens Reviews
Nice apartment to be with friends Apr 25, 2009
With an excellent location, Les Olympiades is a nice hotel. You get out of the door, walk 50 meters and you’re on the slope that brings you to the rest of the area. Besides, when you’re out of the door, there is a shopping street with different restaurants, supermarkets, several sport stores and a sports hall with swimming pool.
The rooms are not that big, but enough for 2-4 persons. The room has a small kitchen and a small bathroom, with bath/shower. The water takes about 1 minute to be warm. The toilet is separated. To create space you can fold up the table, but it’s not that practical. You have to pay for watching TV. There are enough electric points, but it’s smart to bring your own multiple socket, just in case. The beds are not that great, but if you’ve skied the whole day and maybe had a view drinks, you won’t notice that.
At the end of the room there’s a balcony where you can dry your clothes, ski boots or whatever… Although the possibility is there to stall your ski’s/snowboard and helmet and ski/snowboard boots in lockers in the basement. But your boots won’t dry there very well.
All with all, if you’re on holiday with your family, especially with kids, I won’t recommend it. Unless your children are 12 years or older, then it would probably be no problem. But if you need space, and the people with who you are with also need space, Les Olympiades is just not the thing for you. The room is not that big, en the facilities are just good enough. Actually… that’s a nice way to summarize ‘Les Olympiades’: for the price and the location it’s just good enough. If you don’t want something fancy and don’t spend much time on your room, it’s just perfect.
