Hotel des Alpes in Kandersteg is a pleasant base to stay in town if you want to keep costs down but stay just a few minutes stroll from the centre of the village, with its handful of restaurants and small bars. Having visited the area with friends for an 'outdoorsy' holiday with walking and adventuring planned, we found the hotel... More

Having visited Des Alpes for a drink and food on many occasions, and also reviewing them previously I feel that their standards have dropped, the restaurant decor and furnishings lack style and taste, the food has become less appealing, still good but not as good, but finally the real problem seems to be the welcome, there isn't one, a friendly...

If you are looking for luxury accommodation, this place is not what you are looking for. However if you are after somewhere affordable on a family budget, family friendly, clean, comfortable and offering good food, then this is the place for you! I stayed here with my husband and 2 year old son on two separate occasions and do not... More

The ‘kids’ were participating in the Kandersteg Internationale Scout Center and we wanted to be close and participate with them. We were looking for a nice, family friendly value hotel and tried Des Alpes just down the road from KISC, and a bit out of downtown. We were VERY glad we choose this family run hotel as it was perfect... More

We spent one night during a hiking trip through Switzerland. The village of Kandersteg is nice but the main road through town (on which a lot of the hotels face) is busy because this is the access road to the tunnel going towards Italy. The hotel is a bit out of the centre of the village on the main road.... More

We only stayed one night,but it was very comfortable and peaceful. We had a balcony on the side. It had a very small en suite bathroom, but was quite adequate. The food was very good and I would recommend the Rosti.

Our vacation in Europe began with a 2 nights stay at this hotel. And it was definitely a great start! The hotel owner is a friendly man with always a big smile and a booming laughter around the corner. The hotel has an indoor and an outdoor restaurant, tea-room and a bar. Although we had only pizzas for dinner on... More

But the view was beautiful. The room was clean and had a bathroom with tub the tiles were a bit outdated but no... More

Great location, half way between Kandersteg International Scout Centre and the village. This is a friendly, small, family run hotel. The rooms are clean and functional, ask for one with balcony that is big enough to sit on. Never mind any of that stuff, the rösti are phenomenal!

Quiet hotel with amazing view (we had a room overlooking the parking/mountains). Stayed one night and slept peacefully, large room with sofa and TV. Kandersteg is stunning and this hotel was very friendly. As always in Switzerland there are no vegetables for breakfast but their home made waldbeer jam was amazing. The hotel is past the main strip but a... More
