“Fantastic Hotel, amazing food, great service, perfect location”
Reviewed 16 March 2013

We stayed in Solden 2012, travelling with a Tour Operator for a week’s skiing. Whilst there we realised are present hotel was at the wrong end of the resort, so decided to spend some time vetting the other hotels; having decided we were definitely going to return to this resort in 2013.

We walked the length of the village, and concluded the hotels on the main road all suffered with the same problem, fast moving traffic and party goers, so looked for accommodation that was back off the main road, in a more peaceful location. This brought us to the HOTEL SÖLDERHOF (or Soelderhof) just across a small bridge, directly over the road from the main lift, the Giggijoch. If you want to use the lift at the other end of town, the bus stops are just at the bridge.

The hotel is owned by the Riml family, who seem to own most of Solden one way or another! If you stay at this hotel or any other owned by the Riml family you get to store your boots and skis free of charge at their shop either at the Giggijoch base station or up the mountain where you offload and you get a free ski-waxing. Leaving your gear at the lift makes walking there and back to the hotel even easier. The queues at the Giggijoch base station can be can be extensive, the longest took us 20 mins, but once the morning rush has subsided, you can walk straight through. The only other place you will meet queues is to get the Glaciers. There is an unavoidable bottle neck chair lift, but arrive after the said morning rush at 10.30 am, and you won’t find queues here either.

The hotel staff were wonderful. In a resort where not many English go, everyone made us feel very welcome and communication was easy. We arrived early, yet our rooms were ready, long before normal check in time (we discovered later that cleaning starts about 7.00 am and our room was often done whilst we were eating breakfast). The food was 5 star. Breakfast was the usual Austrian fair, high standard, plenty of variety with hot options. Having a serve-yourself system was a great bonus, you could help yourself to as much coffee/tea etc as you wanted, without having to ask a waitress. The evening buffet was also a bonus. We have sometimes been so tired waiting to be served our 4 course evening meals on ski holidays, that we have on occasion contemplated missing one! There is no need to choose what you want to eat in the morning, then regret your choice when you see someone else’s looks nicer.

There was always soup, lots of different cold starters, a salad bar, then all the hot main courses with a chef serving or carving, and of course if you really want to pig out, you just go back for seconds! The desert is the only course that was served, apart from when there was a special evening and there was a whole selection of cream cakes etc. There were a couple of themed evenings which were also excellent. 2/3 afternoons a week there is a free afternoon snack, not worth coming off the slopes early for but nice if you happen to be around at 3ish.

The only criticism we have as far as the dining room is concerned, they charge for tap water! It’s free if you buy a bottle of wine, but costs 2.50 euro per litre jug if you don’t. This seems a little mean for paying guests, after all, it’s not bottled water and all they do is run a tap. First time we have come across this, usually they don’t serve tap-water so the issue about charging for it doesn’t arise and you expect to pay for bottled water.

We chose a slightly larger room than the basic called the 'Solden'. Lovely big room with a sofa bed and table, huge dressing table with a mirror over it (very rare) and more clothes hanging space and shelves than we have ever seen. Most we left empty and I take everything except the kitchen sink! Lots of hooks near the door for hanging ski gear on. The bathroom was spotless, just a little dated. Everything there you needed, but lighting was poor and it could do with a refurb. Shower screen was a little cumbersome but shower was powerful with tons of hot water.

Some of the soft furnishings in the bedroom were also looking a bit past their sell-by-date, but the room was clean, bright, and warm and the carpets looked new. The balcony was lovely; as our room was at the back of hotel we overlooked snow covered lawns, hillsides and forest.

This was an excellent choice of hotel. Location couldn't have been better, staff were wonderful from the moment we arrived, and the standard of food was 5 star. For the price I don’t think we could have done better and when we return to this resort, this is where we will be staying.

Room Tip: As with all hotels, I would avoid rooms next to the lift!

Just got back from Austria where we stayed for a week ski fun. Solderhof is a nice hotel and very close to the ski lifts Gigijoch. Breakfast and dinner are all in buffet style with a varied choice each day. The rooms and beds are good, enough place in the bathroom with the choice to take a shower or a bath.
In the basement U can find the wellness area with sauna, steam-bath, Jacuzzi and relaxing area, on request you can have a bathrobe and slippers if U would like to change clothes in ur room.
The skiroom is also in the basement with possibility to dry Ur ski shoe's.

Very kind English speaking staff, plenty of good food (breakfast and dinner) and prompt service, huge accommodation for a special situation. A highly recommendable hotel for any Soelden visitor or for a ski week in winter.

Rooms need some refurbishment, food is very good, wellness average, location very good (in Soelden standards), service is very kind and helpful.

Room Tip: No reason to pay for more expensive rooms in my opinion (second smallest one is absolutely enough)

We were really pleased with our stay in Hotel Soelderhof: great food, very friendly and helpful service, 2 minutes walk from the Giggijoch lift and spacious rooms (we booked a "Solden" type of room). We would certainly stay there again if we are back in Solden.

Excellent stay!

Good location. Very close to the skiing area (200-300 m). Right in the centre. Solden is a great ski resort.

Rooms are spacious (they have several options but ours was ok) and very clean. Room service every day.
Food was very good (5 star for this). We had half boarding. Both Breakfast and dinner with a lot of options are really good. Good options also for the kids.
However the service is poor. Both reception and restaurant. The first days, it was hard to receive even a good morning. The restaurant staff spoke very little English and they treat us very bad in some instances. We got friendlier by the end of our week :).
Internet in the room did not worked at all. there was a WI-FI available in the bar (closed during the night).
Bar is not very used. The after ski lounge is not that popular.

I recommend the place.... the only downsize are the services...
