The hotel is perfect and the staff is great. We especially appreciated the bathrobes and the slippers (unusual for a 3-star hotel), the amazing view from our balcony and the rich and tasteful breakfast with mostly local products. Thank you very much to our kind hosts !

I have stayed at here for 3 days in the middle of summer to experience summer skiing and other activities you can find at Tignes. In my opinion this is the perfect location no matter when you visiting summer or winter. Strong and fast wi-fi connection in every place (that is not trivial according to my experience). Ski lifts just... More

Let Refuge has an enviable location in the heart of Tignes Lac. My room had space, though the separate bathroom/ WC limited the storage space. The bed was comfortable, the balcony has a perfect view up the valley. Wifi was poor. Service and welcome, excellent with all the staff willing to go the extra mile to help. For example, arranging...

We arrived really late (at 2am) and the reception staff had waited up for us and advised us on where we should park our car.
