Overall fantastic. The hotel was a lot better than we imagined – it was our first package holiday. I have to say though it was all well organised and we were quite surprised at the quality of everything. We had good rooms which were interconnected and had lots of space.

It’s a really good hotel. Well positioned because you have doorstep skiing, some people in other hotels had to walk to get to the mountain but we were on it. We had really friendly staff and they were all helpful and polite, everyone staying in the hotel was lovely and seemed to be on our wavelength so we al... + more

Really liked the Aalborg – obviously it’s a very family friendly hotel and we’re not a group with children, but we knew that before we went! If you’re a big group of younger people looking to party it’s not the hotel for you, but if like us you’re happy to go out for something to do in the evenings it’s ... + more

The Aalborg was fine, the rooms were great and had the best bathrooms I’ve ever seen on a ski trip - spotlessly clean and not tatty at all. The food on the whole was good although on some nights the service was great while on others it was bad… I don’t think it helped that we were tucked away in a dark corne... + more

It’s a nice hotel in a nice area. The best bit was probably how close it was to the slopes and lifts. Everything was good value for money and the food was good was well – we were half board and had a buffet breakfast where you go up and get your own. In the evenings they had a bit of buffet and a bit of servi... + more

Hi iddi, thank you for booking our ski holiday - we have all really enjoyed the sport and were very lucky with great instructors and fabulous sunny weather throughout...

Overview - hotel description - Hotel Aalborg description

The Hotel Aalborg is in one of the best locations in all of Les Deux Alpes; on the slopes and close to a number of lifts. The relaxed and spacious bar area flows out to a large sun terrace (perfect for an al fresco lunch or après-ski drinks) which looks out on the nursery slopes, beginner ski school meeting point and the lifts beyond. Take a short walk and you'll find yourself in the lively resort centre.

For families, our full range of kids' clubs provides safe and fun indoor and outdoor activities every day for children from four months old, right up to 12 years old.

A convenient in-house equipment shop saves you the time and effort of carrying your kit around the resort. There's a storage locker per room for added convenience. And if you're in need of a bit of TLC, we have a small wellness area with a sauna and treatment room.

The inviting public areas are spacious and quirkily furnished. There's always members of our hospitality team around if you fancy a chat or need any tips or advice about the resort. When the slopes have closed, the bar comes alive with buzzing après and plenty of banter.

With a range of different room sizes to suit all groups and the warm and friendly atmosphere, you can rest assured that you and your party will have an unforgettable ski holiday in Les Deux Alpes.

Our youngest guests will be well catered for with our childcare and crèches taking care of kids from four months to 12 years old. For skiing kids, we offer a ski school drop-off and pick-up service, ensuring they're happy and settled. There's also evening care available on three evenings a week.

Our chefs will cook up dedicated kids' menus for high tea at 5pm. All of the firm favourites are prepared to make sure they're well fed. You can also borrow our snow buggies and sledges for when you want to head out and explore the resort by yourselves.

For our youngest guests, we have a 24-hour baby room and UK standard cots and highchairs, just let us know at the time of booking if you'd like a cot in your room.

Meals - food and drink in Hotel Aalborg

Our half board basis is designed for skiers and boarders. Breakfast is a fairly extensive affair with cooked and continental options every day. Your daily afternoon tea of freshly baked cakes and biscuits will be waiting for you when you come in from the slopes.

Your seven evening meals consist of three-courses with regionally inspired dishes all followed by fresh coffee. You can buy drinks to accompany your meal from the bar.

We update Hotel Aalborg's details often, but facilities do change. e.g. some extras listed by the supplier as "free" or included might only be for the first time you use them, or for one time per party, then charged for further use. If any specific feature is essential to your holiday, make sure you ask us to confirm the details of it before you book your holiday.

Glacier Skiing Awesome après Loads to do

Gobsmacking views of Mont Blanc aren’t the only bonus of the glacier - this ‘upside down’ ski resort is one of the most snow sure in the Alps, so much so that you can ski here in the summertime. Much loved for its après ski, the town's main strip is bursting with some of the best bars in the mountains.

Grenoble is the closest airport with a transfer time of just under 2 hours, making the resort really accessible by road. The resort was first used for skiing as early as 1925, when the first ski tow was erected. Unfortunately, this rather Neanderthal piece of equipment fell down a mere 15 minutes after the opening ceremony! The “Les Deux Alpes”, as we know it today, was established in 1946. It is commonly assumed that the name is derived from the two mountains on either side of the town, when in reality the na...
There are plenty of beginner slopes on the front face with runs like les Vikings and Les Gentianes for those learning to ski. The great thing about LDA is that there are some terrific beginner slopes higher up the mountain so new skiers can really experience the benefits of skiing at altitude. The Cretes area at 2100m is the favourite spot for ski schools, with the Ski Escalator a welcome aid to those learning to ski. A top tip for beginners is to either ski the green back to resort early or opt for the gondola ...
You don’t have to look far to find good après in L2A. The best place to start has to be the Panoramique bar, known as Pano bar to the locals. This slopeside restaurant, based at 2,600m really comes alive between 3pm and 5pm every day with a DJ set that will vibrate through your whole body. At the bottom of the piste, Umbrella bar is a great place to keep the party going. If you want to take the night further then Smithy’s is the place to go, with great modern music as well as a few nights of live entertainmen...

"Fantastic hotel. Families should take rooms on the higher floors away from the bar area"

Roz Cormack, Scottish Boarders
4/ out of 5
Overall fantastic. The hotel was a lot better than we imagined – it was our first package holiday. I have to say though it was all well organised and we were quite surprised at the quality of everything. We had good rooms which were interconnected and had lots of space. They were basic but that’s quite normal when you are skiing, and they were clean. They weren’t luxury, but that was fine, it was all you needed. Everything was great at the hotel. The staff were very friendly and the childcare facilities were very good and well organised. The staff responsible for looking after the children really impressed me. They left a very positive impression on me after watching them closely. Our boys went bowling together with the other children on an organised evening out, and there were lots of events generally. The hotel caters to everyone, from families and couples to young people. It all seems to work, there were pub crawls and quiz nights and something going on every night, and the hotel bar was quite lively, but we didn’t particularly notice any noise from it. Our room was high up, away from the bar, on a high floor. I think that’s why we didn’t have any problems with noise. I think it’s important that families and people who want a quiet atmosphere take a room on a higher floor. The staff were very helpful – when we arrived we were absolutely exhausted (having travelled a long way in the UK and then all the way to Les Deux Alpes with young children), and even though it was after service had finished, the staff still made us some chips; very accommodating. The food was very nice. It was better quality than I expected and the menu was decent considering the hotel is quite large and has to produce a lot of food. It was different every evening and they served a nice beef dish one night, as well as pasta and obvious choices. It was just what you wanted after skiing. The location is absolutely perfect, spot on. The hotel is ski in / ski out and the ski school is based just outside, which is just what you want when you have young children. No need to carry everything a long way. There is also a ski hire shop just underneath the hotel. My only gripe is that you have to take the cable car to get to most of the nursery slopes because of the layout of the resort. We didn’t really need to leave the hotel much because we are a family with young children but you could quite easily go out if you wanted to. We don’t normally go back to the same place but we had such a good time I want to book it again for next season. Unfortunately it already seems to be quite full for next year though.

It’s a really good hotel. Well positioned because you have doorstep skiing, some people in other hotels had to walk to get to the mountain but we were on it. We had really friendly staff and they were all helpful and polite, everyone staying in the hotel was lovely and seemed to be on our wavelength so we all got on. It was clean but basic, but basic in a good way, not plush or anything. We enjoyed the food. In the mornings, you go down for a buffet style breakfast which always had really good choice. It was the same buffet style in the evenings but you got a menu with 3 different options and then went up to collect them. There were 3 courses including lovely homemade puddings. There weren’t many other facilities but there were things close by if you wanted a spa or swimming pool.

"We liked it!"

Really liked the Aalborg – obviously it’s a very family friendly hotel and we’re not a group with children, but we knew that before we went! If you’re a big group of younger people looking to party it’s not the hotel for you, but if like us you’re happy to go out for something to do in the evenings it’s fine. The location was good and it was helpful having the ski lockers and ski hire underneath. The location’s quite convenient for the lifts and we could get the little drag down to the chair lift or go over to the gondola. There are bars nearby as well as there being a bar in the hotel (which is a small one, but once the kids had gone to bed there was plenty of space). The food was great; I was pleasantly surprised as I’ve had some shocking meals on ski holidays! We normally had two choices of meals in the evenings and it was a mixture of traditional French (like raclette) and other dishes (seemed to be mainly meat based, but we’re not vegetarian so we weren’t looking for non-meat options). Starters were just help yourself.

"Great bedrooms & bathrooms"

The Aalborg was fine, the rooms were great and had the best bathrooms I’ve ever seen on a ski trip - spotlessly clean and not tatty at all. The food on the whole was good although on some nights the service was great while on others it was bad… I don’t think it helped that we were tucked away in a dark corner of the dining room. During the day, the staff were very friendly and helpful. It was very easy to get to the slopes and town. There were a few downsides, I don’t know if it’s just the way things are changing but when they did cake etc. in the afternoons, you ended up having to pay for tea and coffee with your cake. This was a bit unnecessary and niggled some of the group – it would have cost the hotel hardly anything to provide hot drinks free of charge. It was the same with the wifi, you could get it for free but had to keep renewing it and had to pay more for decent signal.

"Near the skiing, nice big rooms, just needs a lick of paint!"

It’s a nice hotel in a nice area. The best bit was probably how close it was to the slopes and lifts. Everything was good value for money and the food was good was well – we were half board and had a buffet breakfast where you go up and get your own. In the evenings they had a bit of buffet and a bit of service with a 3 course meal. The rooms we were in were basic but very large – they could have done with a lick of paint but were fine for what we needed. We didn’t use too much of the facilities but they did offer a ski school, kids club, massages and nights out.

"3 generations on a family ski holiday"

M - As the grandfather to loads of grandchildren, with sons and daughters all staying together over Christmas, I really liked the Aalborg. K – It was really good, a brilliant place to be with the kids, spot on for a family holiday. The whole set up was brilliant, staff could look after the kids if you wanted them to. The location was great - you could walk out of the front door and onto the slopes. Food was excellent too, no problem there. They did a lovely Christmas dinner with Turkey and all the trimmings.

"We really enjoyed it"

Hi iddi, thank you for booking our ski holiday - we have all really enjoyed the sport and were very lucky with great instructors and fabulous sunny weather throughout... Well except the two days of travel when it snowed and created havoc. The location of the hotel was superior and so handy to have ski from the door. The terrace for lunches was great and the food was good. The lounge area was relaxed and great for socialising and the kids made friends. I wasn't impressed with the kids club for Dina. I don't think they were dedicated or even creative with the activities - I did mention it. The rooms were alright - a bit on the basic with small space to manoeuvre and a tiny squeaky bed for us. The village very quaint and accessible with lots to see and do - great choice. You've probably already heard about the shut down at airports due to snow. Our return flight was delayed by 8.5 hours!!! The kids were heroes to have survived it. We did have another incident on the way over, which was due to human error. As we were reaching close to the village (3km away) the snow was building up. The driver did not bother to put chains on the wheels. We slipped backwards (on the edge of the mountain) and hit the car behind us. A few minutes after we stopped The van in front of us slipped backwards and hit us!! We had to get off and wait for another bus to take us up to the hotel - it was extremely nerve wrecking. I hope this is useful for you. Will chat when I see you next X Rana
