Hotel Kandahar helped me out of a spot when i needed a place to stay between chalets. While the hotel is traditionally styled, everything is actually new so its clean and beautifully appointed. It is right in the center of town, either a brisk 5 minute walk or a 30 second bus ride to the main lifts.

Stayed in March 2015 having being caught in the snow storm in December 2014 and not being able to reach resort. Fanny and other staff couldn't have been more helpful and supportive in the crisis! So pleased to have found this little gem! Recently refurbished and looks lovely. Breakfast is great keeps coming and always fresh. Hotel is so clean.... More

We all had fun skiing and the hotel is great, in the village centre etc. The staff are polite and helpful and the restaurant, quality of food etc. are all excellent. This is in stark contrast to the lazy, unhelpful and careless attitude displayed by Inghams when things went wrong on both journeys to and from the resort. It seems... More

This hotel has had a recent face lift which has turned it into one of the better decorated hotels in Val. I have stayed there twice this year, once with my family and once with a ski buddy. On both occasions we have found the rooms, service, food and friendliness very good. The hotel is in the heart of Val... More

Very surprised by this supposed 3 star hotel - a recent refurbishment should surely push it up a star. Rooms were typically alpine, comfortable - a couple of quibbles - the heating is centrally controlled, but just ask at reception and they will turn it down or off for you. The over the bath shower's are fine, but water splashes... More

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
