Hotel Kandahar
Ranked #20 of 39 Hotels in Val d'Isere
Reviewed 13 February 2012

The hotel has a good town centre location, handy for ski buses or a 5 min walk to slopes. The downside, as with all town centre hotels in ski resorts like Val d'Isere is the street noise as revellers make their way home from 2am-5am singing and shouting! Not the hotels fault but ear plugs are often a useful thing to have if you want a bright early start skiing. Either that or stay out late yourself!

The bedrooms are pleasant but lack attention to detail in the decor and the bar/lounge area is nice enough. The housekeeping staff are good as are the service staff, especially in the excellent Tavern d'Alsace restaurant below the hotel. Reception staff are helpful but there is a lack of hospitality that makes some places stand out as special. Breakfast was poor with a shortage of essentials such as croissants on more than one occasion and little choice of anything cooked.

I would happily return to the Kandahar but may look at other options for our next visit to the resort for something a bit more luxurious.

Spent a week here and while the rooms were small and the hotel did not offer everything, they were clean and comfortable, the service was friendly and great and the facilities were working and functional. Great for a no fuss stay and we would be happy to go back as they made everything welcome and friendly. (we stayed on a package deal and so cant really comment on value etc, but would definitively recommend to no fuss couples) Below the hotel is a great value good quality food in the restaurant - La Taverne D'Alsace. (avoid eating on the mountain due to its cost)

Room Tip: avoid level 1 as its a bit noisy

The architecture of the hostel is very classy,
The cost a little bit high but in the mean for this winter sport resort.
The reception is very kind and helpfull.
The sauna is a pleasure after a day of skiing and the breakfast is amazing and plentiful.

Second stay and didnt disappoint us... Junior suites are big rooms for two...twins fine for two kids. If you ask you can get rooms opposite so it feels really safe. Access to Taverne d'alsace is easy from the hotel and is also good value.
Overall great value.

We have just returned from a weekend skiing in Val d'Isere and stayed at the Kandahar which was lovely. It is very traditional and alpine in style and is in an amazing position. Our room was more than large enough with a nice large bathroom.The breakfast was really good and we will return again next year - what better recommendation can you give!
