Fantastically situated hotel at the top of an Alp with amazing views as long as you remember to ask for one. Not sure why anybody visiting in the summer would want s room with a view over the car park and municipal gritting department but we were moved when we requested an upgrade to a much better room
Great location close to the slopes but near the shops, next door to a drag lift and opposite a transfer point to the main lift centre 5 minutes away so no carrying of equipment long distances.
Excellent food, rooms and facilities.
Nice bar, well decorated as was the whole hotel and a very good musician each night providing a range of music.
If there was a negative to be found they could do with a house wine on the menu, the cheapest on the menu was Eur30 which seemed a little high for France though the quality was good.
All in all a great and convenient place to stay.
The location of the hotel is the key to whether you will be happy with you're choice of Mecure 1800. It is in 1800 which is almost a separate resort to the main strip with all the bars and resturants. So if your after nightlife then choose somewhere more central. The complex the hotel is in is a little tired but I couldn't fault the staff or the hotel itself. Your access to the lifts (main 1800 lift) is a short walk away, I'm sure in main season you could ski back with a little off piste. There is a bus service which runs to the main village which is a must as otherwise it's a 20 minute walk and uphill on the way back. So if your staying here you really want half board as otherwise your evening options are less than convienent and the hotel charge a premium as your cut off from the competition. If you have a car then none of that is a problem and more of a benefit, u can choose to see as little or as much of the lively centre as you please. Parking for our friends car we found nearby for free. (Not sure if that was due to being end of season). If you can get an all inclusive package and you are happy with the location then I think this hotel is still w good option. The benefit of its location are the views from the breakfast area and that most of the resort can be accessed quickly from the 1800 lift which we found quieter than the others. Do your research and think carefully about this one, sounds obvious but at least you will know what to expect and won't be disappointed.
We stated here as I was taking part in the Alpe D Huez triathlon. The hotel could not have been better. The manager was so good telling us this is your home while you stay here, and that is how it felt. As a family of four the rooms were spacious, modern and clean. We would definitely stay here again. 5/5.
Really enjoyed our stay here. Great location for the bucket lift to the main uplift only a 50m walk. Right in the centre of Alpe dhuez with great access to shops, bars and restaurants.
Good facilities for relaxing after a hard day and decent wifi for keeping up to date with internet access.
The overall quality of the hotel was good, the rooms were clean (although you have to clean the rooms yourselves at the end of the week), well equipped, and offered a nice bar, free sauna, swimming pool, gym and ski locker facilities. "Ski to door" isn't entirely true, unless you count the 50m walk to the slopes but never caused us any problems, even with ski / snowboard boots and equipment.
