Hôtel des Alpes

Top choice hotel in Bourg d’Oisans

Well-heated, wooden-floored rooms are packed into this slender building in the centre of town. Standard rooms are plain but pleasingly large, while deluxe rooms have designer bathrooms, writing desks and a royal colour scheme of cream and maroon. Even cosier is the dinky spa (€8.50, by reservation), with jacuzzi and sauna to soothe cycling-sore muscles. The breakfast buffet costs €9.

Room rates are 10% lower in winter.
