The ski-in/ski-out Fahrenheit 7 was a perfect place to stay for our week long ski vacation! It is easy to get to. Give a call from the bus drop off point in the center of Val Thorens and they will send a van to shuttle you and your luggage to the hotel, otherwise, it is a fairly easy 10 mn. walk along snowy streets. The hotel front desk staff is friendly and welcoming. Don't believe the rumors about French rudeness, the staff here couldn't have been nicer and more hospitable! Our room looked out over the slopes and was well supplied with toiletries, large cotton robes and slippers. The double bed was extremely comfortable and the pull out couch seemed fine for our friend. The breakfast buffet was amazing, with wonderful cappuccinos, designer bottled juices, a variety of breads, cheeses, muesli, eggs, pastries, bacon, beans, various fruits, and yogurts! The multiple bars and restaurant at F7 are also fun for apres ski and light evening snacks/drinks. The hotel also has a fabulous sauna and steam room that we used every afternoon after returning from skiing. The in-house "ski boutique" can rent you skis, boots, etc. at very reasonable prices (and even less if you book on line). Pierre is a delightful ski technician who works very hard to get you properly fitted with equipment. With over 300 guests, Pierre will amaze you by remembering your name later in the week. He and his colleagues pride themselves in giving optimal service. The shop also has ski passes available.
