Hotel Kandahar proved to be a great choice for accomodation in Pas De La Casa. The exit from the basement ski locker room is within around 50 metres of four ski lifts offering access to the huge Grandvalira ski area. If you need to hire or buy ski equipment, there is also a shop within the same building.
Although our triple room was a little on the small side, there was ample storage and a large bathroom with plenty of hot water. We also had a balcony offering a view across the lifts. Just a slight niggle about the fact that noise can carry around the hotel in the evening, but given the skiing, the fresh air and the wine, we didnt have too much trouble sleeping. Pas De La Casa shops are only a 2 minute walk and there are plenty of nearby bars and restaurants.
I would highly recommend booking on a half board basis as the food at breakfast and dinner is excellent, and this works out as a very good deal price-wise. Lots of choice from a buffet for appetizers, and each night a choce of two or three main courses. Also a fairly reasonable wine list, and an excellent dessert 'buffet'.
Service at all times was friendly and welcoming. If you are driving to Hotel Kandahar, you will need to drop off passengers and bags fairly quickly (up to around 10 mins) to avoid the attention of the traffic wardens, but can then park in a huge multi-storey car park at the top end of town, around a 5 to 10 minute walk from the hotel. if you are driving to Andorra in winter, do take snow chains with you, most of the roads within Pas De La Casa are on a gradient, and rhe road from France is a long and winding climb.
