Hotel Palazzo Salis
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Soglio
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 August 2013

We stumbled upon Soglio last year and enjoyed a fine lunch in the gardens of Hotel Palazzo Salis so this year we decided to stay one night and explore the village before heading off to Val Gardena. The hotel itself exudes old world charm. Having previously been a palace it has maintained many of its original features, furniture and decor so you are transported back in time.

As a family of three we stayed on the top floor where we enjoyed the huge quiet space of the bedrooms and views from our windows. It was good to disconnect from the outside world as there is no TV or radio. Beds were very comfortable. The bathrooms are basic but adequate and the only thing I would warn readers about is that there are no lifts so we had to drag our luggage up several floors of stone steps. You can drop off your bags outside of the hotel but have to park in the public car park five minutes away. Also, the road is very narrow through the village so with only centimeters to spare we unfortunately scraped a wing mirror on the road up.

Dinner was excellent. Dishes were local to the area and I enjoyed a delicious kid stew with polenta and my husband had the grilled local trout, complimented with wine from the region. Breakfasts were also good, a lovely spread of fresh fruits, meats, cheeses and breads.

One of the main draws of this hotel is the delightful garden. We enjoyed a late lunch in the shade of the old trees and like most of the guests reading or napping on the lawn in the sun.

There is an easy walk behind the village you can do in a couple of hours where you can hike up and admire the view.

A great start to our holiday!

Room Tip: No lifts. Top floor is perfect for families as there are two connecting bedrooms and sitting area.

Over many years this has been the perfect getaway for a romantic weekend in the mountains. Soglio is such a beautiful little village with lots of charm and character. The hotel is also very cosy and the food excellent. In autumn the game dishes are a special treat! We also enjoy very much the lovely and award-winning garden in the back of the Palazzo. Overall the valley of Bergell is a bit of a paradise ...

Great location in one of the most picturesque villages in the alps. It has a great atmosphere and you can feel the history. The only drawback was the food. I expected more from such a classy hotel.

This beautiful Palazzo of the 17th century has been entirely restored and is set in the beautiful little town (or rather village) of Soglio, high above the Mera river. The views are stunning and the hotel is situated on a small piazza in the middle of the town. The owners have had the intelligence NOT to gut the entire place and to modernize the rooms, but rather to keep the original rooms with, amongst others, the most amazing original floor boards. The result is that the rooms are perhaps not of the highest standard, but instead you have a unique experience of living in this very beautiful palazzo. Add to that the excellent kitchen, superb breakfast, the lovely terrace and the very friendly service and you have a unique experience in this remote part of Switzerland. We will be back!

It has been a while since I staid at this hotel, but at the time I was not active on TripAdvisor, so I did not write a review. However, the (bad) experience has stayed with me, and I write this review now.

We stayed a weekend with another couple in the autumn of 2010. The town of Soglio is amazing and the building itself is great and has a lot of charm. The rooms are quite big (the ones I saw), but very cold, and the furniture a mixture of antique and something picked up from a jumble sale. The worst part of this place is the owner. Incredibly rude man. The service on a whole was non-existent. This place is not really a hotel, it is closer to a B&B.

We also dined in the restaurant one evening, and the food was very good, but overpriced - just like this place. The only reason I do not rate it 'terrible' is because of the charm of the village and the building that houses this "hotel". Can not recommend.

We just returned from 17 days hiking around Switzerland (6 adults)...and Soglio exceeded all expectations...what an amazing village. My friend Terry said it best...he said he has always wanted to "go back in time"...he said, "we did it." The village was just perfect, the hiking was amazing....and the Hotel Palazzo Salis is the place to stay. First, ignore the shutter island review/comments...very funny and creative, but off the mark. This place is old, historic and beautiful. If you're looking for a Marriott Marquis, then don't visit Soglio. If you want to expeience a village and a culture that has not be destroyed by "progress", then you'll love Soglio (and Guarda...spend some time in the Hotel Meisser as well!!!).

The Palazzo Salis is a completely authentic and preserved old palace in the wonderful village of Soglio, at the small Italian end of Switzerland, a 45 min drive from St. Moritz. The wooden and painted rooms are all unique and did not really change since the 19th century, there is a beautiful park behind the building, and exquisite meals are served in the medieval dinner hall of the 1st floor. The whole small town of Soglio has been left completely untouched by mass tourism and yet has been a peripheric perl of tourism to the nearby Engadin for many decades, to be reached only with the yellow post bus or through the scenic hiking trail starting at Maloja. For day tourist: just stop here to have coffee and cake in the hotel's café.
