Solden’s hotels tend not to be very beautiful to look at, but they get high ratings from previous guests and there is a near equal distribution of budget hotels/guest houses, mid-range hotels and luxury hotels to choose from. For those who want the freedom and economy of self-catering, the choice is even wider.
Hochsolden is more convenient for the slopes (you can often ski to the door of your hotel) but it’s quiet at night. Solden is now rather stretched out and there is very little ski-in, ski-out accommodation, but the lively apres ski starts early and continues late into the night.
Hotels in Solden
The 5-star Central lives up to its name: it’s within easy walking distance of the Zentrum Shuttle funicular lift, and about 500m from the Giggijochlift and the Gaislachkogelbahn. If that sounds too far to walk, don’t worry it has its own shuttle bus or you can slum it on the public ski-bus which stops nearby. Inside it has a 3-storey ‘waterworld’ spa and its restaurant has one of the most extensive wine cellars in the Alps. It’s main rival is the 5-star Bergland Hotel, which has an equally spectacular spa,this time at rooftop level with an amazing indoor pool. It’s located next door to the Zentrum shuttle, or you can take a bus to the main lifts at either end of town.
One down from these. is the 4-star Vaya Sölden which is also central and also has a spa. It was only opened in 2016 but as already collected hundreds of rave reviews
For those tempted to burn the candle at both ends, the popular 3-star Hotel Garni Sunshine is well placed for the Giggijochbahn and dangerously convenient for the Fire and Ice bar which is in the same building.
Hotels in Hochsolden
Staying up at the ski-in ski-out hamlet of Hochsolden is a very quiet affair but it can be a very comfortable one. The ski-in, ski-out, 4 star Hotel Edelweiss has beautiful mountain views, a nice lobby with an open fireplace, a playroom for children, a lovely indoor pool and a spa centre. Hotel Enzian is very similar and gets very high user ratings, whilst Hotel Schöne is only different in that it has a heated outdoor pool and an impressive skybar. There are also simpler hotels/guesthouses in Hochsolden such as the well liked Glanzer Homes Hochsölden.
