"A good clean hotel with adequate self catering facilities."
A well run aparthotel.close to the slopes and bar/restaurants. We had read other reviews on the Alaska so knew to take kettle toaster glasses etc. Parking is a problem. Their own garage cannot take 4x4's. Their one bedroom apts. are excellent. The studios are a bit cramped and the bed is awkward. There is only one lift so use the stairs during rush hour.Good Italian restaurant attached to hotel. This was our second trip to the Alaska this year and we will use them again next time.All staff were friendly and helpful.

We got in really late at night and were lost and they were so nice staying on the phone till they figured out we were lost and came and got us (not a standard service but it shows how nice they were. The apartment was basic but functional. We were on the top floor and had a stunning view of the snow capped mountains. Had to make own bed and buy own shampoo and loo roll but liked the location at the top of the hill (if you take the bus from the airport like we did, you have to walk up the main street and take a right before sporting hotel and keep zig zagging up till you get there). About 150 meters away is the olympiades hotel - and access to the pistes.
I blew out my knee on the first day and a word of caution - they got me to the 'medic' which was a bit of a joke. THey charged 350 Euro for a ten minute exam to tell me that i tore a ligament - which I pretty much already knew. Hope this doesnt happen to you but if so ask for an estimate first.
The hotel and the ski rental place in the lobby were really nice - they refunded my skis for the remaining days which they didn't have to do. All in all I probably would opt for higher quality furnishings but it was fine if you, like we did, just needed a place to crash while out skiing all day.
Elo at front desk gets special mention - she is a doll and so helpful.
The hotel is situated in beautiful Encamp with a a beautiful view everywhere you look. The rooms are clean, the staff is friendly, the parking is convenient and reasonably priced. The capital is only a few kilometers away. If I have a complaint, it is that if you are in a room on the street side and open the windows, it might get noisy.

The location was convenient- you can catch a free shuttle right outside the hotel that takes you to Funicamp (part of the Grandvalira resport). You can take another bus to Soldeu or Pas de la Casa from Funicamp.
Tourists favor Encamp, both the Andorran parish and the town that bears its name. A short distance from Andorra's capital city, Encamp offers shopping and sightseeing along the Valira d'Orient River. Skiing and hiking trails crisscross nearby Lake Engolasters, a short cable car ride away. For a glimpse into the past, the Casa Cristo Ethnographic Museum recreates 20th century peasant life.
