The hotel is situated near the railway station, not in the historic center, but it takes you only 5 minutes to go to the center of the town. The room was really nice with the view in backyard. Check-in is started from 3 pm, but we came earlier and the reception staff made a check-in in 1 pm for us. We like the hotel a lot and recommend it for your future staying!

Great stay! Excellent welcoming, by staff (good English). No lift, so travel light. Nice breakfast for appropriate fee. All attractions are easily reachable on foot and hotel is very close to railway station. We will definately stay there again!

Very convenient midtown location, an easy walk from rail and bus stations. Room was very spacious, and double-windowed to effectively mask street noise. Manager was helpful in all respects; fluent in English.

A small and friendly hotel which was very conveniently placed for the station (200M) and Annecy old town. The room provided all we needed for our stay and the breakfasts were just the thing to start us on each day's exploring. The only downside was that the door on the en suite loo/shower had no lock and wasn't a good fit (fortunately, we know each other well . . .). The hairdryer in the room didn't work. However, the reception staff were very friendly and competent and attended to our needs. A fab time!

We were all really impressed with this hotel, really clean, excellant location, lovely breakfast and the staff were really helpful. The only negative I could give was the noise from the road, our room was on the same side as the entrance and the noise from the traffic was awful during the night. My parents stayed in a room round the other side and they didn't have this problem. They need to either fit some better secondary glazing or fix the old windows so that they close better and don't let the noise through. Having said this we all agreed that we would stay here again.

I would recommend the Hotel Des Alpes. It's clean. The room is small but nice. There are all basic things I need. The location is great. I could even see the hotel before the coach arrived the station. But unfortunately, there was no internet signal in my room, but just right in front of my room ! Compared with the money I paid, it's excellent.

A great, small and basic hotel. Clean and comfortable. Good soundproofing from the street, although noisy guests in the corridor were irritating. Lots of internal stairs and no lift were not a problem, but might deter some other travellers. Overall, good, honest value for money.

Far better quality than the cost would indicate. We stayed 2 separate nights, the location is great for visiting the Old Town, lake and shopping areas and is 200m. from the railway station.Hotel has a parking arrangement with public undeground car park 200m.distance at special price.Desk is manned (sorry 'personed') 24 hours a day and the staff are very friendly and helpfull. Basic continental breakfast, if full cooked breakfast is required there are nearby cafes.

The hotel was very conveniently positioned just across the road from the railway station and also within a few minutes walk of the old town. The staff were welcoming and helpful. Hotel on junction of two fairly busy roads so not terribly quiet, but fine at night. Would recommend to anyone on a budget.

Hotel des Alpes is an excellent two star hotel only a few minutes walk from the station, and not far from the historic center and the lake. The hotel starts on the first floor, the ground floor is take up by shops unconnected with the hotel. The staff were more than helpful and we recommend this hotel to all travelers.

Everything was fantastic and as written. There are thick windows and heavy fire-proof looking doors that block out sound very well. My only complaint was the wireless internet is spotty on the top floor. If you want wireless in your room, ask for a room on the lower floors. Everything else was very satisfactory and I would stay there again.

We stayed at this hotel for one night on our way elsewhere. As such it met our requirements fairly well. The beds were comfortable, showers hot and the rooms clean. The bathroom and shower were very small, but functional and clean. Staff were welcoming, and helpful, and had not problems dealing with an Australian who had little French. Parking was provided in the Municpal park overnight two blocks from the hotel (cost us a total of 2euro from mid afternoon to the following morning). There was parking out the front to allow us to unload our bags. There was not much immediately around the hotel, however the town centre was a short (5 minute) walk away.
