“A ski hotel with good food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

The Hotel Tyrol, located in the center of Solden is a good three star with better than three star food.

The desk personal are friendly and helpful, though sometimes overwhelmed during busy check in/check out periods. The main lobby area is small, but there are comfortable parlors on one side and a large bar area on the other side.

Our room was in a rear corner of the hotel and had a small balcony. The room was large enough for a wardrobe, a table and two chairs. The balcony side of the room faced rearward toward the wall of an elementary school while our other window had a view of the village church and some mountains beyond. Our room was very quiet, but rooms facing onto the main street can be noisy with late night party goers. Also, be careful with your room selection or assignment since almost every room in this hotel is a different size. Some were long and narrow with barely enough space for the bed and no space for a wardroom, shelves, or chairs.

There is a modest charge for the Wi-Fi, but there are routers on every floor, and it worked very well in our room.

The food really distinguishes this hotel from others in this category. Breakfasts consisted of the usual buffet items in ample supply and a number of cooked to order dishes. In the evening most meals were five courses, with individually prepared appetizers, soup, salad, a choice of individually served entrees, and deserts. Once a week there is a huge buffet of Austrian meats and specialties. All of the food was exceptionally good.

The ski locker room in a building next to the hotel was one of the neatest that I have seen in Europe, with each guest getting an individual locker and a long boot rack with heaters for each boot. It is about a ten minute walk from the hotel to either of Solden’ s main gondolas, but free shuttles run through the village every ten minutes and will get you to either gondola in about two minutes. If you are willing to ski the long runs all the way back to the village, you can ski within a block of either side of the hotel.

This was our fifth time skiing in Austria, but only our very first Solden experience. A quick work on Solden: it's less glamorous than St Anton (although the same penchant for displaying bottles of champagne EVERYWHERE), and less wild than Mayrhofen, but significantly more fun in the skiing stakes than anywhere I've ever been. It also had a surprising number of lap dance bars, so if you like your skiing with your scantily-clad women, you're definitely on to a winner.

On arrival at the hotel, we were greeted quite sternly, but politely, by a young lady in traditional Tyrolean dress. I like the no-nonsense attitude of the Austrians so no cause for alarms just yet (this comes later). We were in the 'classic' (synonym for 'basic' in the hotel world) section of the hotel where we found the room to be clean, tidy, and fairly comfortable. Expect to pay for wifi though, and by device at that. Oh, and if you're in the company of close friends all the better, because the baking conditions at night call for no duvet nudity (probably not a problem deep in the winter).

As a 'young' (sort of) 'group' (3) of girls, we were treated with a degree of suspicion by the inordinate number of waiting staff at meals times. We were strategically placed by the restaurant door - presumably so that we wouldn't make off with the crockery, and our every move was watched with intent. We didn't order any of the table wine at circa 40euros a pop, which didn't put us on good footing for the rest of the week. We also noticed on one night that our meals were significantly different in size and presentation in comparison to the large wine quaffing family seated next to us.

All said, the food was brilliant. We had the opportunity to absolutely gorge ourselves at both breakfast and dinner (lasagne for starter, anyone?), and the quality was really high too. There was a salad buffet everyday which we particularly enjoyed. A word to the wise: don't hold back on the desert buffet. It only happens once.

Reasonable food, somewhat essentric staff, emblematic of a small farming town without the expected hospitality. The rooms are unbelievably small. The internet is for recreational use only. It is clean, a good sauna and not too noisy. The single rooms are not an option and the doubles are very tight. The staff is even interested in whom you are having intimate relations with. Quite bizarre. There are more reasonable places nearby.

The hotel is in the middle of Sölden, and you can walk to the ski lift in 10 minutes, or take the bus just outside the hotel.
The service is good (the reception closes between 10 PM and 8 AM, but that works out just fine), the size on the rooms are small but big enough - and you can dry your clothes in the bathroom on the towel dryer witch is a big plus! We had a problem with the water in our room, which could not be fixed before the day after, and the reception was very helpful and excusive for the inconvenience.
The ski room is superb with lockers and shoe dryer that is free of charge.

The five (!) course dinner is extremely good, with good variety every day, and the waitresses are quick and give good service.
The breakfast gives you the best start on the day, with their own egg-chef, and a lot of different food to choose from.

The spa is the perfect end of a perfect ski day in Sölden!

All in all - we loved the place, the hotel and the food!

Hotel well located with good amenities. Classic rooms were clean and vary in size. Staff generally very helpful. Dinners are massive (five courses) but varied in quality from night to night, e.g. some nights the salads were basic and other nights it came with cold meats, fish and cheese. Only issue during the week was our group wanted to go alcohol free with dinner in the middle of the week but the hotel would not let us have tap water unless we ordered wine. In Austria, it may be considered an insult to order water with your dinner but the hotel should provide some flexibility if guests are staying seven nights, especially if they are from a country where they have legal rights to tap water in licensed premises.

Room Tip: Room sizes vary, so ask for a large one on the opposite side of the hotel from the church ( unless y...

After returning from a week ski trip as an older active couple, we made following findings.
Good points:
Situation of the hotel is very good. It is in the very middle of the village on the main street. If you like "night life", everything is on the spot. Ski bus stops to both lift directions are within 50 meters. The buses are operating every 10 minutes. The nearest "ski railway" is only 200 meters away to walk. The hotel staff was nice and helpful. The service and food were good. The breakfast was versatile and sufficient. The evening menu meals were "artistically" made and plenty enough to eat. The soups in menu were the only minor disappointments, as they were a little bit lame and not so tasty. The service was efficient and quick. The ski room was well organized and OK.
Bad points:
If you want to rest the entire night, do not choose your room from the street side. There are always "happy brothers and sisters" singing and shouting on the main street during the small hours. Maybe the drinks in the restaurant were a little bit overpriced compared with the standard price level. On the other hand it was no problem, the nearest Spar shop was only 300 meters on foot.
Other remarks:
The slopes of Solden are over populated during the peak seasons. In the afternoon during late spring season some of the slopes are melted and dangerous even for experienced skiers.
If you do not pay attention on night live and want to ski in peace and rest, your choice is absolutely Obergurgl. But it is another Story...

We have just returned from a week ski trip with friends. Having organised the trip myself for the six of us I was really concerned when I read some of the reviews… so was pleasantly surprised as was everyone else on arrival.

We had nice rooms – a superior room and two classic rooms (517 is a great room if you can request it). Some of us stayed the whole week while others came for long weekends on either side of our trip and the hotel managed all of our requests (we booked our trip directly).

The hotel is really close to the funicular down from Innerwald so a quick walk back to the hotel where you can leave your gear in the skiroom (€10 deposit for the key which you get back on return). The hotel is only a 5 plus minute walk to the gondola at Giggijoh Tal where you can leave your ski’s/boots at the depot. So you have options.

I agree with comments about the hotel being bar being nice but smoke-filled but unfortunately this appears to be the case with all the bars in the area… we spent a lot of evenings under the heaters at Marco’s bar around the corner! The good thing is that they do not allow smoking in the rooms and these were always beautifully cleaned when we returned from our day’s skiing.

The service in the restaurant was very good and the food plentiful. Every evening was slightly different but the 4 course meals were always preceded by a choice of lovely salads from the buffet and on some evenings there was also cheese. So you were never hungry! For those who have gone on chalet holidays in France – the food at the hotel far exceeds anything we’ve ever had in a chalet and you have far more choice.

Overall - everyone on the trip agreed that the hotel was good value for a ski hotel, the food was decent and the location could not be faulted. And if we were back in the area we would stay there!

Room Tip: Superior rooms are great but if not in your budget ask for room 517.
