Located in the heart of Annecy, the small Hôtel des Alpes is a relaxed, contemporary property less than five minutes’ walk from the town’s main sights and Lac d’Annecy itself. Enjoy meandering from the hotel to the old town, up and down the canals and browsing in the local shops.
Inside, the decor combines contemporary style and comforts with rustic, traditional elements in a warm and welcoming way. The 32 rooms are set over four floors and feature tasteful interiors decorated in modern tones of taupe and grey with pops of raspberry. The rooms vary in size across the different categories but all are comfortable and many feature small balconies overlooking the bustling streets below.
The breakfast room next to the reception area serves a daily selection of hot and cold options, and although there is no hotel restaurant, there are plenty of local restaurants and cafés in the surrounding streets.
We find Hôtel des Alpes to be a simple yet central base from which to explore the lake town of Annecy. The friendly and knowledgeable staff are always on call to help you with anything you might need and the interior is full of local charm.
