Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

The Hotel Kandahar is a genuine alpine retreat. The warm atmosphere and Savoyard architecture oozes charm, comfort and well-being. This hotel is right on the main street of Val d'Isere and just a couple of minutes' (250 metres) walk from the slopes. 

The lounge and bar area has a fireplace and TV, so it's the perfect place to relax with a drink - there's also a games room to occupy the children. The lively restaurant, Taverne d’Alsace, serves regional traditions and a range of other dishes. After a day of skiing enjoy the benefits of the sauna and hammam facilities at the hotel to relax the muscles and be ready for the next day.

Hotel Kandahar has very charming bedrooms and suites, all of which have balconies. The decor is traditional alpine wood and stone, which creates a warm and cosy feel.
