Very clean room with comfortable bed and pillows. Very small balcony. Heat did not turn on in room even though it was only 40 degrees outside. Luckily the comforter on the bed was extra warm and fluffy. Weird that sink for bathroom was in the room instead of in the bathroom. Bathroom was very very tiny but was clean. Lots... More

The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable with nice views of the surrounding mountains. It is about a 10 minute walk from the train station so very good location. The food in the restaurant is surprisingly delicious! We went out of convenience but were happy to discover that the food was very well done. Breakfast is included which is... More

The hotel is one of the less expensive ones in Kandersteg, but no less excellent for that. The hosts are especially welcoming. The breakfasts are wonderfully Swiss, very tasty and plentiful. The bar is very popular every evening but not too noisy. The restaurant is superb. There is free WiFi throughout. The lift works well and the rooms are cleaned... More

Found this hotel to be the best priced for the dates I needed. The owner (woman) was nice and even picked me up from the train station to bring me and my luggage to the hotel (it's not terribly far away but I was exhausted from traveling and didn't feel like carrying heavy luggage through town). The hotel itself is... More

I have visited Kandersteg three times since 2003. The first was June 2003 on a Boy Scout High Adventure trip to the International Scout Center located in Kandersteg. We had 28 hungry scouts and adult leaders to feed when I discovered Des Alpes and their restaurant. The restaurant was great, the menu diverse enough to accommodate a variety of palettes,... More

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...
