Hotel Guide to Tignes

Discover insights about Tignes hotels


Tignes is predominantly an apartment resort, but the number and variety of hotels on offer is gradually increasing, as is their luxury in a resort that feels more and more upmarket. Pretty much all of the hotel accommodation in Tignes has excellent access to the slopes and, if you stay in Val Claret or Le Lac, you’ll also be close to a pretty lively après ski scene.

Hotels vs chalets & apartments

Chalets and apartments are usually the most popular accommodation options when it comes to ski holidays. They tend to offer more room, more flexibility in terms of catering and, sometimes, better prices. However, hotels are also a great choice for those visiting Tignes, especially when you're not coming for a full week. 

Why book a hotel room instead of a chalet or an apartment in Tignes?
If you aren't planning on a full week ski holiday, hotels can offer much more flexibility on dates, plus many can't be beaten in terms of extended services and facilities such as gourmet restaurants, spas, swimming pools, fitness rooms, tennis courts, childcare, bike and/or ski hire, flexible catering options... the choices are endless. And even though some apartment and chalet companies have recently made their booking requirements more flexible, the reality is that many can only be booked for six or seven days especially in peak season.
