“You dont get better value...”
Reviewed 7 April 2013

So... Wes, lives up to his reputation here on Trip advisor but Margaret (your holiday mum) makes the better fried egg though :-) Sorry Wes!!!
I'm a massive believer in value for money and you really can't beat this great family feeling hotel. The holiday started well with Wes meeting us at the door and getting settled in was smooth, Dropped right at the door by the Crystal coach. Breakfast is between 7:30 and 10 which is great for early risers and those laying in. It was very similar every day so we new what to expect. It included cereal, yoghurt, white and brown bread & rolls, cheeses and meats. However the great inclusion was a fresh egg and bacon which you can pop on the hot plate yourself. Only improvement would be a few pastries to jazz things up and more fresh fruit which was not available daily. For afternoon or early evening food there is a local bakery and supermarket just opposite with a great variety of hot & cold snacks. The Apres Ski/evening menus at the Rubin were also awesome... Great Burgers etc, Good job Chef, perfect for when you have the munchies. Half Board meals were also really good, although the short dinner service between 6 & 7 does not allow you to stay out long for Apres Ski elsewhere. Lisa helped Wes at Dinner and I must say I never had to eat after and the choice of main meal every evening was great. Each choice had the same starter and pudding that I really enjoyed, although soup every day was repetitive. Now... The part of the day that will make it or break it for you, The evening entertainment! The sportsbar and club that are underneath the hotel really kick out the bass thanks to DJ Brett if you like that sort of thing, If you dont
(It is a party hotel), having spoken to a couple I would not have expected to see at the Rubin, the supplied ear plugs got them through with great nights sleep. The bar staff were brilliant and never had to wait like I have to in rubbish bars at home, even when it was busy. This leads me on to the basic but cosy rooms that were cleaned throughout daily which we really appreciated, beds super comfy, great balconies ad storage space was alright. What do you want from a room you only sleep and get ready in, Not a lot really. I would advise if you need anything then ask day one, We couldnt get extra pillows and previous comments on hot water was true. Just avoid the shower between 5.30 and 7 unless you wanna feel like you are running naked over the mountains. Overall I would book again due to the British, family feel of the hotel and the fact It naturally promoted a social experience to meet great new friends too.
As for the SkiWelt it is an amazing group of resorts however soll is geared up for those developing well or a good level, I felt beginners not taking lessons would need to go elsewhere to really have a great experience with many more blues, (they closed 2 blues out of 4 rather than mantain them). Many of the people I met, beginners mainly, went over to Scheffau which was amazing for the last 2 days. Also watch out for this time of season as everything closes down, pubs, clubs, Even the free shuttle buses stop running and the reps go walkabouts too. I know this is due to it being the very last week of their season but I expected more from the resort. All in all its a clean resort and facilities are always immaculate... Loved it!!!

Room Tip: Get the team to sort you out some ear plugs when you fancy an early night... Its a Party Hotel!!!

Here we are at the end of another weeks skiing. The Rubin this time. We do 2 ski weeks every year with crystal and we did soll 2years ago in the sonnehoff chalet, the Rubin did not disappoint. The staff here are great, wes is old hands at this and even had his mum Margaret helping, my partner was on an unusual diet and they really helped with alternative food. The rooms are the usual good standard, clean although slightly smaller than usual, ensuite is fine. The food has been a good standard throughout the week, infact the only negative for us was no tea and cake at 16.00 each day but there is a coffee shop next door so no problem really.
The Rubin is about 5-10 min walk to the gondola, it couldn't really get much nearer, the skiing here is about the best we have found,so much to choose from.
It cost us £359 each and about the usual £190 ish for the ski pass. To summarise, just book it if you see it, we certainly will, we did well this year with the Grimming in Rauris and here.

Was asked to sum up my review in one word but amazing doesn't cover it!!...just got back from here on sat along with a group of 7 friends and we had the most awesome week!!.. Don't know where to start but it really should be with wes -the most helpful,happy,truly original guy you could ever wish to bump into- what he doesn't know about the resort, the weather n local info u would never need to know-always got a friendly smile n chat-funny too!!!...all the staff are really good at their jobs- Danny,Greg,Brett just to name a few-all helpful n friendly:-)..the bar is the hub of all social activity n we were never out of the place..the food was great,we ate well everyday n presentation was excellent.. The rooms were warm n comfy- our pad was so welcoming when u come in to find your room had been cleaned daily n was tidy again- not how we left it leaving in a hurry in the morning...now to the afore mentioned noise !!.. It's simple really-Don't go to a party hotel if u aren't up for a party !! Having said that our room was above the bar and for the few times I wasn't at the party I slept like a baby!!..oh the resort should get a quick mention too- really nice resort- plenty of slopes, no demon drag lifts to report, no lift issues etc.. You gotta give this place a visit- well as long as u don't all book it up so we can't get in again!! Happy hols y'all :-)))

We have just returned from a week at The Rubin as a mixed party of young & young at heart. Wesley & the team are the best hotel bunch of staff I have ever met & we will be booking to return asap, we have been on many ski hols & will find this trip very hard if not impossible to beat! From the word go you're made to feel welcome, the hospitality at the Rubin is exceptional. The rooms are clean & warm, the food is great & the presentation gives you the feeling you're in a restaurant rather than being half board so there's absolutely no need to eat out. The one night we were unable to choose from the menu options, Wesley simply offered us an alternative that suited all our pallets....perfect & always service with a smile...they simply cannot do enough for you! As for the Red Horse bar, what a brilliant atmosphere to end or start your day, depending on how long you can stay awake the staff are happy to party until dawn! Thanks guys & gals for making our holiday so memorable :) can't wait to come back & see you all again next year!!! Amanda.xx

Room Tip: If you love to party then stay on the 1st floor, if you need you're ski sleep simply ask Wesley...

Hotel Rubin needs to be your first choice of hotel if you want good apres ski and generally an all round good time. The staff were like friends at the end of the week, and we were genuinely sad to leave! We were assisted straight away as soon as we came off our coach by Wes, who was helpful and constantly around all week. The rooms were spotless, warm and the beds were so comfortable, although we did have a problem with a few cold showers, but with everyone taking a shower at the same time it couldn't have been avoided. Because everything else was SO perfect, we really didn't mind.
The supermarket is right in front of the hotel, and there are bars within easy walking distance from the hotel, not to mention The Red Horse downstairs which is open later and perfect for an after-ski/board pint!
I didn't go on the holiday expecting to be partying every night, but we did, because there was always something on and something to do. We were made to feel really involved and part of it all...we'd be damned if we wasted all that! If you want a quiet hotel then it really isn't for you, but in fairness we didn't have a problem with the noise, and if you stay there, that's part of the package.

We met so many new people through the hotel and bar so it's perfect even if you're going out on your own and want to meet new people.

The food was lovely every night, there was always a good choice between local dishes and stuff you usually like. There was one night we went out instead but we let Wes know and it was fine.

Continental breakfast was perfect for stocking up before a long day, you can cook your own bacon, and there's a bowl of fruit and plenty of bread and cereal etc., for those who don't eat meat or anything.

All in all, our stay was definitely made better by the fact we were in Hotel Rubin. We had such a good time, we're already looking at coming back next year.

*Special shout out to all the bar staff including Greg, Danny, Kerry, Danielle and Lisa! Sorry if we've forgotten anyone!*

This is a great place for young/ young at heart groups and is exceptional value for money overall. Also, I do not think you could find a better location in Soll either in respect of access to the slopes or the bars/ shops/ supermarket.

This is not recommended for families or those who want peace and quiet; ear plugs are recommended for everyone as the music in the red horse bar beneath the hotel is on every night and is pretty loud by anyone's standards. On karaoke night in particular it's easy to have a sense of humour failure!

The rooms are perfectly fine, clean, and the bathrooms are really nice.

Overall the place is very well run with Wes, the manager, making himself known and available to all the guests and having a kind word for everyone at some point or another.

The food is pretty good overall although I found one or two of the soups a bit strange - you certainly won't go hungry though.

Our group were given free drink tokens (one per person) for the red horse every night which was a nice touch.

If you are looking for somewhere cheap which is good fun, look no further.
