Stayed 14th - 18th January, great small hotel, with good breakfast buffet and friendly/welcoming staff. They had a lot to put up with, with the group of 12 people who I travelled with and managed it easily, even finding time to cook there porridge! apart from the one day when it exploded covering there microwave in gooey stuff!

A well located hotel that was inexpensive compared to other hotels. Most hotels in Val have a strict Saturday to Saturday booking policy whereas le Kern is totally flexible. Friendly, helpful staff - particularly Pascale, who was always willing to give us advice on anything from restaurants to what villages to visit on our way back to Paris. Comfy room... More

Another wonderful stay at Le Kern. The hotel has very friendly staff who always make us very welcome. The chalet like charm really appeals to us and it is like staying with family. It is in a very central position about 10 minutes from the main Olympic lift and very close to some wonderful restaurants. Just round the corner is... More

Such a nice and cosy hotel in the heart of Val d'Isère! The personnel is very welcoming and warmhearted. In comparison with some other 2-star hotels in this town, this one is very priceworthy. Our doubleroom was clean and tidy. Good breakfast for french conditions. Thank You Hotel Le Kern for making our stay here so pleasant!

The first thing we would say about Le Kern is that the staff are so friendly and welcoming and made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. The rooms and facilities are quite basic which is reflected in the price but everything is kept really nice and clean. Breakfasts are nice and generous with a good atmosphere. The... More

The Kern is a small 2 Star hotel in the heart of Val d'Isere and although not my first choice turned out to be both adequate and very friendly. The rooms are quite small and the showers a bit difficult but for a weeks skiing without too many niceties it was ideal.

March 2015 was my third time at Le Kern, having stayed there in March 2011 and March 2013. This is a charming, unpretentious small hotel centrally located in Val d'Isere, just steps away from Val Village and the ski lifts. The welcome is warm and friendly. Pascale and Dany, who run the place, are lovely ladies who go out of... More
