Very cosy little hotel in the French Alps. Very peaceful quite. great vacation for couples. The staff were very friendly. I forgot my ski boots in the hotel. They did everything to get them back to me in the U.S.
"Couldn't recommend more! Great hotel on the slopes"
I booked the week before we set off and was a little apprehensive due to the last minute booking. However, I couldn't recommend this lovely hotel any more. Right next to the lifts- the perfect location and a 2 minute walk to all the bars and clubs in the evening. The food was AMAZING, the most delicious food and the biggest selection for every meal, we had seven-courses every dinner and we never wanted to leave.
We stayed here for a week's skiing in february. We had a family room which was more like a mini suite, with a hallway, main double bedroom, bathroom and a second bedroom with bunkneds. This works brilliantly when staying with children, which we were. The room was comfortable and had a balcony. We were on the second floor and it was very quiet. Everyone at the hotel was extremely friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and plentiful, a choice of two starters and mains most nights and fabulous desserts! The hotel was a great place to come back to after a day's skiing and it works really well using the free shuttle bus to the olympic bubble/cablecar up to meribel. We would thoroughly recommend Hotel Athena.

This hotel is in the heart of brides, a very small resort with a couple of bars and restaurants in close walking distance. The room was clean and comfortable but basic with the decor tired in need of a refurb. Could benefit from providing tea & coffee facilities in the room. We were in a low floor room which proved to be noisy when late night revellers were making their way home in the early hours. Perfectly situated for gondola station for skiing - 30 sec walk and a 20 min drive from Meribel. Overall would recommend but for budget travellers only expecting no frills.
"Hotel conveniently in town centre close to shops and cable car."
This hotel benefits from good secure car parking (extra charge) - vital if you are travelling on motorbikes as we were. The majority of its customers are there for the spa 'Cure' so expect menus to have calory counts alongside each dish. Overall a good hotel, but river outside somewhat noisy at night after heavy rain storms.
