We arrived to the hotel late in the evening after doing via ferrata in Kandersteg (make sure not to miss the last cable car unless you want to spend quite some time descending from the top of that ferrata - nice walk though). We came in, I asked how much is a room, the lady owner said 70CHF, which seemed... More

On my way to the 2015 World Expo Milan I had a stopover in Kandersteg. The hotel is a 10 min walk from railway station, and a bit out the center of the village. I had a single room at the front of the hotel, with balcony. Great Alpine views! Hardly any traffic during the night. Shower not big, but... More

Excellent value for money b & b in Kandersteg. The rooms are clean and typical swiss modern style with comfy beds. Nothing extravagant but everything you expect. The hotel is run by a lovely couple who are always happy to help. We left early on the last day and there were sandwiches waiting for us to take on our journey.... More

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
