This centrally located hotel offers basic, reasonably priced accommodation in a fantastic location, right in the heart of Meribel centre and with ski in and ski out access.
The hotel is ideally suited for those that enjoy their apres ski; as well as a number of surrounding bars, it conveniently has it's own pub attached with live bands 7 days a week.
Hotel Le Doron rooms are of 2-star standard, basically furnished and yet comfortable. There are 14 rooms all with WC, bath or shower, and most with balconies. Whichever direction your room faces you are sure to have some great views. The rooms towards the back of the hotel tend to get a lot more sunshine so bear that in mind when you are booking.
Prices include breakfast though half-board options aren't available. This gives you the choice to eat downstairs in Scott's Bar - serving mainly fast food, or of course to enjoy any of Méribel's fine eateries.
The hotel offers flexible breaks so is ideal for a cheeky cheap ski weekend or mid-week break. For weekend breaks, we advise you book in advance as they are often full.
- "4 night short break in Hotel Doron, yes it is above a bar and yes accommodation is basic but I have stayed in many 3* hotels in the Alps and been disappointed I found the staff very friendly, continental breakfast was fine, room was warm and plenty of hot water, what more does a skier on a budget need!" - Trip Advisor
