Good sized room with plenty of space for ski clothes. There was good free wifi. Ski room on ground floor had direct access to the slopes passing a few restaurants and bars on the way. Dinner menus were ok if not especially good, and we managed to get an alternative on the raclette night. At tea time there were free...

Hotel Alpen Ruitor was a positive suprise on our skiing trip to 3Vallees. It is located high in Mottaret, some 100 meters from lifts (which open late 😰). Alpen Ruitor is little bit old fashioned, but it has been well kept. The rooms have everything you need and the batrooms are suoerb (both shower and bath). All rooms have a...

Very nice hotel, amazing location: in the middle of the resort, 5 meters away from everything (ESF, Ski passes / lifts)! rooms are very nice and spacious. The Spa is really good and perfect for a well deserved apres-ski. Almost 5 stars rating - one thing that needs to be improved is the in-hotel restaurant "La table du Ruitor" which...

Wonderful hotel in the highest part of Meribel, at 1750m. Directly at the base of the Mottaret lifts, skis on once you are off the outdoor terrace. This is where apres ski becomes pre dinner drinks. Rooms were comfortable and provided everything. No coffee or tea but these could be ordered easily. Ambience of public areas was cosy. Food was...

The Alpen Ruitor is just simply perfectly located if you are skiing in Meribel or in the Trois Vallees in general. The chairlifts are just 2 minutes from the hotel and you will have access to a large network pistes for all levels. The ESF meeting point is at the same location so super convenient if you need to drop...

Dear Madam, Thank you for your comment. We are very glad you enjoyed your stay amongst us. As you pinpointed the location is very convenient right in the center of the 3 Valleys resort, we are just a few meters away from the first ski lifts that take you up the Valley. Moreover, our restaurant La Table du Ruitor focuses...

The location of this hotel is next to several connecting chairlifts and gondolas. Room is not very big but with enough closets for our clothing. Balcony overlook the ski field but sometimes have people yelling at night. Lift is very slow and we prefer walking stairs. But set dinner was not very attractive when you know many good restaurants around....

Dear Madam, Thank you for taking the time to post your review.

The hotel is in a perfect location and is certainly value for money. Food and service is excellent with nothing too much trouble. Some nights the set menu wasn't for us but they were happy for us to pick off the a la carte menu for a reasonable supplement. The spa is perfect after a day on the slopes. I...

This is my second visit to this hotel this winter. That may tell you all that you need to know. The hotel does what its website says it does.

Spent 6 nights there for our ski trip in a package ski tour. The staff and owner were friendly and helpful.
