“Great Place for the offered Price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

We had a great stay in Hotel des Alpes, Annecy. It is located in a heart of town, 5 min to the old town, 8 minutes to the lake. Sunday local market starts justoutside ot the hotel. rooms simple but clean, great staff, very helful, and breakfast forthe offered price was normal, but all fresh and tasty.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2011

Hotel location is convenient to the bus and train station, beautiful lake and all other attractions. Rooms are small, clean, everything worked as supposed. Hotel interior has preserved original style and breakfast was special joy served in room with wooden floors, tables and ceilings and nice painted pictures hanging on walls. Felt like you have traveled back to 19th century. As you pop out form hotel nice old town with it's great lake is just behind a corner. Train station is located over street but it's quiet and you actually do not hear nor trains, nor traffic during night. Staff could improve English skills but it is sufficient.

The location is convenient to the station, lake and all other attractions. While it was not 5 star accommodation, there was nothing defective or objectionable. The staff were quite helpful with planning our time in Annecy and surrounds. We were not ambushed with any unexpected charges on the credit card, no charges for using the wifi or turning on the water tap, so I would be comfortable going there again.

Room Tip: First or second floor, as there is no lift

We chose this hotel for it's location-close to the railway station and from the reviews. The staff were extremely friendly, especially Nicolas, they were all happy to give tips and advice. Room was larger than expected, lovely bathroom and must have been recently decorated. Access to the beautiful old city of Annecy was an easy stroll. We hired bikes in this beautiful town and rode around the lake and into some of the nearby towns. A beautiful part of the world.

Enjoyable stay facilitated by engaging and helpful staff. Room very clean..bed marginally comfortable. Good breakfast and a totally enjoyable city on the edge of the French Alps. One hour drive to Chamonix..and Mount Blanc.

Directly across the street from the train station, this is the first two star hotel I have ever used. I was traveling solo and was only there for a night so I was looking for convenience, not luxury. It was perfect for my needs and I would recommend highly. I saw later that Rick Steeves had also recommended it. My room was recently repainted, etc. and had an excellent television. There is really no lobby, you walk up to the desk and small breakfast area (I didn't eat the breakfast which is extra). It was very clean and just 2-3 blocks to the old town and canal.

We loved our stay in Annecy and this hotel was perfect, not too pricey, but clean and a few steps from the old town. The staff was just wonderful to us. He had 3 rooms and our whole party was delighted. They have firm beds and clean rooms. It was Tuesday, Market Day and the place was buzzing! I would stay here again and again!
