Arguably the Pic Blanc's best feature is the stunning views from the hotel's sweeping glass picture windows down the valley. It's a fantastic sight to have breakfast to and you can catch the sunrise over the peaks, coffee in hand if you're up early enough.

The chalet-style hotel is traditionally wood clad and the mountain features spill into the hotel with wooden sleepers making a striking bar area and plenty of stone throughout. The lounge areas are full of soft grey furnishing and roaring open fires. They've paid a lot of attention to the details and as a result, it's well worth each of its four stars. The indoor pool is perfect for a soak at the end of the day or the spa area with sauna, hammam and hot tub can be utilised for a full unwind. 

What we like

- Panoramic views across the valley and the peaks beyond, it makes breakfast extra special
- Open fires in the living areas, indoor pool and spa facilities
- Close to the Bergers lifts and the beginner slopes (just across the car park from the lifts)

Worth knowing

- The spa area is an additional cost, though the indoor pool is complimentary
- The centre of Alpe d'Huez is a 15 minute walk away but there's plenty of shops, bars and restaurants around the hotel

What others have said

Good quality in a quality ski resort Very enjoable stay with good service, for the most part. Live music for 2 of our 3 nights might have been enjoyed by some, but we thought it too loud and it spoilt our enjoyment of a fireside... Rated 4 on TripAdvisor
Best stay Ever The Pic Blanc Hotel is surely the best hotel in the Alp D'huez and great value for money, I have stayed only one night (on Friday, room 202), however I found the staff really helpful, genuine and... Rated 5 on TripAdvisor

View on map

Hotel Le Pic Blanc is in the Bergers area of Alpe d'Huez, this is a second major access point to the slopes and great for beginners with plenty of green runs with both gondola and chairlift access. The lifts are less than a 250m walk (slightly uphill) which would take around 4-5 minutes in ski boots and when the snow is good (most the time) you can ski back closer to the hotel (not a piste, more a snow-covered kids playground).

The centre of the main town is around 900m down the road, that's a 15 minute walk but there are plenty of restaurants, bars and shops that are much closer than that in the Bergers area. All in all, it's a great location and the stunning views down the valley more than make up for the short walk each morning.
