This modest tourist hotel has a fine location directly on the lake, five minutes walk from the train station. The 200-year-old building has always been a hotel and was recently renovated in a contemporary, commercial style. The present owners, the Hilber family, have managed Des Alpes for 40 years.

Many of the simply furnished, plain rooms are equipped with showers rather than bathtubs and have balconies with lake views. Number 455 is an average-sized double in shades of tan, with French doors overlooking the lake. Number 460 is a quiet double, done in shades of deep red, yellow and beige with a balcony opening to a courtyard. Number 456 is a quiet double with balcony and city view. The restaurant is a sunny place with a friendly atmosphere and tables on a terrace facing the lake.
