Fantastic stay in the French Alps!

Review of Hotel Kandahar
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 23 Apr 2024
The Kandahar is one of our favorite hotels in Val D'Isere. This cozy mountain hotel is nestled right downtown and just steps away from the skiing. The service is very hospitable and the included breakfast was exellent. The Kandahar is hard to beat value.

I’ll begin with the positives.

1. Lorna: if Carlsberg’s did reps, Lorna would be an ice cold pint on a hot day. (You can almost imagine how the first sip tastes). Enough with the beer metaphor's, she is very well connected & efficient with any desires you may have. Meeting Archie made our trip.
2. The cleaner: honestly, we gave this cleaner a few challenges. She was put through her paces to say the least but my god, she done well. Very proud. I think Kim Woodburn maybe doing a season in Val.
3. Location, location, location - love it or list it. Kirsty & Phill would list this.
4. The boot room: if you thought Lorna was special, wait until you visit the boot room.

The negatives:
1. The lift smells like poo 24/7.
2. Breakfast: at breakfast they provide activities. Spoiler alert: it’s a scavenger hunt to find cutlery with no clues. BYOC (bring your own cutlery) this hotel runs this policy but ironically you need a straw to eat their scrambled eggs. We did ask for the recipe, apparently it’s 1 egg to 1 cup of sick.
3. Restaurant: if you’re looking for a delicious meal after a hard day skiing, do not use this restaurant in the hotel.

To conclude, I would definitely return, albeit, a bedroom on the ground floor to avoid the lift would be desired.

We just had a few days here. Booked last minute so didnt know what to expect.
This hotel is lovely, right in the centre so walking distance to everything including the slopes.
More important than anything though were the staff.
All so lovely and friendly….even when we left at 5am!

Excellent accommodation, great service. We had a huge room, really comfy and well appointed. Great location, in town and couple of minutes from the lifts. Half board and ate in the restaurant under the hotel. Food was amazing, as was service. Drank at Le Garage and Yule. Snow amazing, just perfect.

Room tip: Breakfast is basic, but we'll presented.

We stayed here as a family of five,over the Christmas holidays. The hotel was beyond our expectations - the rooms in the hotel are delightful being a real good size for Val.
Breakfast plentiful, staff very welcoming and location perfect with easy access to main Gondola. The hotel does not have room service however there are many good restaurants in walking distance and a fabulous bakery opposite.

Room tip: Ask for a room further back of the hotel at the weekend the night time revellers can be noisy.
