This is a nice friendly hotel right in the middle of the town. The rooms were very comfortable, although some friends reported theirs were a bit sparse. The location is very good, being about 5-10 minutes walk from the main lifts (depending on how fast you walk). Dinner is served in a lively basement restaurant that's open to the public.... More

I booked online the “big suite for 2”, turned out to be really big and beautiful under the roof with a nice balcony with clear view (room 414). Sauna and hammam were next door, opened any time for free, hardly any people. Great breakfast until 10am, never been rushed to finish, they kept bringing food and juice until people were... More

The Kandahar is admirably situated in the centre of the town within easy walking distance of the ski lifts - not always the case with Val d'Isere hotels. The bedrooms are quiet and comfortable, away from the main street. Peculiarly, the central heating in the bedrooms is controlled centrally: you must tell reception if the bedroom is too hot or...

Hotel Kandahar was fabulous, well above expectation and more than its 3 star rating. However I would never again book with Igluski who changed our booking at the last minute to fly to Geneva instead of Chambery, without notice and without announcement. The transfer time from Geneva to Val d'Isere is 4 hours and only 1.5 from Chambery. This makes... More

Perfectly located in the middle of the village. About 250m from cable car and several chair lifts. Also close to Centre de Congres. Multiple shops and restaurants close by. The room was of medium size with much wood in evidence as with the rest of the hotel.The result is a warm,charming and quite rustic atmosphere. Very homely - adding to... More

Fantastic 7 days over Christmas. Lovely hotel facilities and great room for a family of 4 with an amazing view of the high street and slopes. We were half board and food was lovely although not great choices for the evening meal for our 6 year old. That aside the restaurant staff were very friendly and really helpful. We will... More

I stayed here with my two sons over New Year and found it to be just perfect. Excellent location, very friendly staff and well equipped hotel. We stayed in one of the new rooms on the first floor as there has been a recent refurbishment / extension. The bathroom was very large with a 'wet-room' design of walk in shower.... More

This hotel is situated in the heart of Val d'Isere which is not, let's face it, a bargain hunter's paradise. Family owned and run by the same people who own and run the popular Taverne d'Alsace below the hotel, the first thing that strikes you is the warmth of both the ambience and the staff. Wood chalet style, the rooms... More
