“Comfortable stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012 via mobile

Stayed at the Hotel des Alpes for 3 nights. Our room was large, clean and a great price. The management could not have been more friendly or helpful during our stay. The location is fantastic, close walking distance to the lake, old city centre, restaurants etc.
Our only problem was that we had a car and although we were given directions to a local underground parking station, with the number of one-way streets we never found it. We ended up parking in an above ground parking station. It was well lit at night and security was not an issue.
Overall, a very comfortable hotel.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

You only have to cross one street in order to to get to the hotel from the train station - extremely practical. Historic center is a 5 minute walk, and the lake a 10 minute walk (very pleasant walk by the way). Staff was very helpful. As for the rooms, as soon as we walked in we could feel that it the room was very clean. We had a room for three, and there was enough space for everyone to walk around freely. Breakfast was buffet, loved it, very good quality for the price (8 euros). Would definitely return.

Great location (right near the train station, two minutes from old town), great room (modern Ikea kind of feel, with charm), great price. Added bonus: there's a luggage room, so you can store your bags and spend a few extra hours walking through the city (especially if you accidentally miss your train!).

I had a pleasant seven night stay here. The rooms are modest, clean, and comfortable. The staff is competent and helpful . The breakfast is a reasonable value at 8 Euros.
The location is great. The hotel is only a block from the train and bus stations. It is just a short and pleasant stroll to the old town, canals, and the lake.
A kettle or coffemaker in the room would be an improvement.
On a return to Annecy, I would stay here.
In summary, it was fair price for nice place in a safe and convenient location.

We chose this hotel looking for value for money and after researching Tripadvisor. We knew there was no lift so we were not upset about this. The room was on the small side but was very clean and comfortable. All the staff we spoke to were very friendly and gave us advice about where to eat (see review about La Cuisine des Amis). The breakfast was simple but perfectly adequate. Just on the outskirts of the old town the location was spot on. The one way system takes a little getting used to, but this is not the fault of the hotel which is very close to the bus and train stations. If looking for a small, stylish, budget hotel then this hotel is spot on. The only drawback we found is that we sleep with a window open and there is a lot of noise from the street below which seems to go on late and then start again early.
