We booked the hotel over the internet and took the optional upgrade to the luxurious room (with a Jacuzzi)
When we got there the room wasn't at all what we expected.
Our room came without a safe. The Jacuzzi was not working at all. We had no DVD player / music - just a TV with the basic French channels (which was of no use at all to us and remember - this is the luxurious room)
We asked for another room with safe, working jacuzzi and DVD but reception confirmed that this was the standard for all the luxury rooms - no safes and a general problem with all jacuzzis being out of order.
The room was very noisy at night times and very early mornings - snow car races opposite the road until midnight and snow scraper trucks from 5:30am onwards.
The heated pool wasn't hot enough to get into and the pool room was cold.
The food was really bad quality and often undercooked although the food was more than enough. The menu had limited variety - only four main course options, repeated every night. Some of these meals were not even available when ordered and the same for the selection of wines.
The staff was really helpful and friendly (but the director was very unhelpful, immature and arrogant)
The service in general was really bad due to a lack of staff and very poor management.
friendly staff - good location - beautiful views - and LOTS of water for dinner :-)

For a 2 star hotel i was very pleased & suprised by this hotel. The staff were really helpful and the bathroom & shower alot better than I expected! I plan on returning to Alpe D'Huez next year & hope to stay at Hotel Eliova - le chaix again.
Friendly welcome, good breakfast, and nice central location.
There is a free bus which rotates around the town, but if you want to be in a ski in/out chalet, you might want to stay closer to the slope.
Stayed in a 6-person apartment in Jan08, was very impressed with the space provided. Double bedroom was only a tad bigger than the double bed it contained, but with a large hallway / bunk area and a pretty spacious lounge we managed to fit six of us in for a week with no problems (even when returning from Smithy's bar completely wasted!). Nice balcony too, not big but SW facing and held the sun until 4pm-ish. The hotel staff service was okay I guess, we had a late arrival and they left the key for us in the safe at reception which was hassle-free (phone in advance if you need to do this!). We did have a few probs with check-in, but these were resolved without too much effort and were nowt major (they misfiled our deposit form, but found it the next day). Overall if you're looking for a footprint from which you can ski / party then this place isn't bad. Bit of a walk to the best bars, but just drink enough that you don't notice!
