Reviewed 17 January 2010

We stayed here for a week at the beginning of January and it is a lovely family run hotel, the owners and staff make a real effort to make you feel welcome. The hotel is in a great location with the ski and boot room opposite the slopes - very handy. The boot room is large and have enough heated boot racks for all guests without having to fight over them. The rooms are a little dated but everything is clean. The food is of very good quality and is typically Austrian. There is a spa on the lower ground floor which is great after the day on the slopes. It is quite a small spa with a sauna, steam room and relaxation area. The sport lohmann shop pick you up and drop you off at the hotel if you hire the skis from them, just ask the hotel reception for the shuttle.

If you like small, family run hotels (rather than something like the Edelweiss), I would definitely reccommend staying here, we would stay here again.

Stayed from 12- 19th December . We stayed in a family room Austrian Twin with Sofa Bed very spacious .The food was excellent five course evening meal with a choice of three main courses each evening . The service was excellent from not only the owners but all the staff ., nothing to much trouble.Straight out of the boot room and on to the slopes.
The resort is small and friendly with everything you need. The ski school was excellent for our teenage Son so well organised they not only grouped by ability but age as well so a most enjoyable week was had.
We would highly reccomend both the hotel and th resort especially for anyone wanting a early season ski holiday , and would definately return .This was our 8th time to Austria, and this was by far the best .

After reading the only review on here a week before we travelled, I felt like cancelling. In reality the hotel is fine. It is above a nightclub, but if you can, ask for a room at the front of the hotel (facing towards the main street) as it's much quieter here. The club is worst at the weekends, which tends to be when most people arrive for a ski trip so your first impression of the noise is likely to be worse than the reality for the rest of the week. We didn't notice it too much after the first couple of nights - infact the constant donging of the church bells form the 3 churches in the village every 15 minuites from 6am were far more of a nuisance than the nightclub!!

The hotel is a bit dated, but it's clean and warm and serves a good breakfast and dinner - what more do you need on a ski holiday? Staff were sweet and friendly, and for a cheap break in Solden where the skiing is great I would recommend it.

this is a lovely hotel with friendly, helpful staff. the rooms are comfortable + immaculate. the food is traditionally Austrian + very good. the only problem is the nightclub mentioned by other reviewers. this is situated underneath the hotel + the music is very loud. BUT from what i understand, the nightclub is leased from the hotel owners who i think may also be fed up with the noise. so that problem may eventually be solved! then it will be perfect!

we had a great stay over new years.
The hotel very much seems family run and they put a lot of effiort into the new years gala dinner, with live bands and fireworks. most people were in smart evening dress, which made it seem special.

We stayed in a 'family room' (travel agent description). this was an austrian twin with a sofa bed. it was a nice spacious room with a balcony and another window and bath.

Food was very good - 3 choices each night.
since others mentioned it, i noticed that there was a childrens choice each night also. Drinks may be a bit expensive, but i dont think anywhere different than anywhere else in the resort- the euro is very strong now.

the location is excellent for skiing, you can ski alnost direct to/from the boot room, although you have to get over a small snow bank each day. you can ski down to the main lifts from down thehere. As regards walking up/down the hill, I cant imagine this would cause any concern to anyone fit enough to ski, its only a few hundred yards and you can go through the walkway which has steps instead. We did not need to do this walk with skis or boots, as we rented from Lohmans at the bottom of hill , on recommendation from hotel and they have a minibus and bring you and your equipment back up the hill. On the last day you leave them in the hotel for collection.

The only small criticism id that there did not seem to be enough boot pegs for everyone in the boot room.

overall a great stay and would go back.

As I used trip advisor to find this hotel I should add to it. I stayed 5 days in this family hotel. www.alpenland.com.

This hotel was excellent in every single was from food, room, staff, heat, convenience, hospitality. If you can find a problem with the hotel I would be very surprised. Included in the stay is a five course meal, every dish every evening was superb. They will assist will getting ski equipment, taxis transfers anything you need.

You can ski from and to the hotel, there is a boot room for your equipment (which will be delivered and picked up) and there is a sauna etc. which is necessary. Why pick this hotel and location - snow in early season, location easy to get around not huge crowds at this time and no delay at lifts.

The hotel also have connection with the ski school which were most helpful, attentive supportive and excellent in their service provision [--]

The only slightly negative thing was the hill up to the hotel, especially after skiing or drink, but thats all. We also used the hotel josl bar (contemporary) and CU bar (busy and small) , also smoking allowed everywhere (not so much in the hotel)

I have stayed 50 nights in hotels this year between work and holidays. This was the only one I unpacked the suitcase and moved in. Please note the hotel has standards if thats what you like and should be respected. You wont need to eat elsewhere for breakfast or dinner. Great pizza place about 7 mins walk away for lunch or on the mountain.

Get the shuttle from airport approx 40 euro on way the web site is [--]

The area is picture postcard with mountains and snow etc. In addition a travel colleague needed medical attention and the standard delivered was first class, to the point of x-rays given on CD for the home doctor.

I am a beginner (no longer) skier and while the slopes and lessons for busy and not without the usual leg pains the standards with everything across the board for such a trip were literally first class and I could not find fault with anything. Unbelievable review I know but actually true.

The Alpenland is a really lovely '4-star' hotel in the pictureseque ski resort of Obergurgl in the southern Tyrol.

The hotel is family-run and in a fairly food location within the actual village of Obergurgl. You can ski from the back of the hotel (the piste is 10m from the back door) down to the village, gondola and chair lift and back again in the evening, which minimises traipsing around in uncomfortable ski boots. If you are walking to the hub of the village it is about 5 minutes, but be warned, at this altitude the walk back can be very tiring and if you are carrying skis etc, it is actually exhasting (you are better off staying at te Edelweiss which is at the heart of everything, if you want to avoid additional excercise).

The hotel has a rustic feel. The rooms are very comforatble spacious and well equipped. The staff are very friendly and efficient. Many of the staff mult-task, i.e. the breakfast waiter was also the masseur - a bit disconcerting!

The food is excellent, with a 5-course menu each evening, with crisp linens and smart waiters. One night we had a 7-course dinner, which was excellent, but it was not child friendly and there was no choice for them.

The only complaint is the cost of drinks. Local wines were quite reasonable (and good) but the hotel refuses point blank to serve jugged tap water at dinner (which they will serve at breakfast), so that they can sell you bottled water at £4 per bottle - which for 6 of us was £12 per night, just on water, which is a rip-off. Other hotels, i.e. the Edelweiss offer tap water for free.

Two rounds of soft drinks, and a half litre of local wine and mineral water with dinner cost us £63!!

Apart from that gripe, really, this is a very nice and frinedly hotel, but be warned regarding drinks.
