The new luxury residence in the heart of Solden offers living worlds for all tastes: from cosy double rooms to premium double rooms and from the Junior Suite to the Senior Suite with room for up to 6 persons.

The rooms are beautiful decorated, beds are comfy and the rainshower is something you just need after a skiing day.

Breakfast buffet is excellent and you can choose a specially made egg dish. Ski room is good and your boots and ski’s are dry within hours. Location of the hotel is perfectly situated in the middle of Solden. Ski bus is around the corner and is just one stop to the lifts. One big plus which isn’t mentioned on the website is the possibility to charge your electric car in the garage! That made our trip with our Tesla even much better!

My favourite part of the stay was the restaurant/bar. The breakfasts were amazing, we had a great prime rib dinner, good drinks at the bar.

The spa is good with 2 saunas and a steam room. Plus a relaxation room and drinks station. Shame they didn’t have a jacuzzi too. Bathrobes and slippers provided in your room for your stay.

his hotel was beautiful and in a good location close to the gondolas. You can walk to them but if you prefer there is a bus stop a short distance from the hotel with buses that take you directly to the gondola stations. The hotel itself is very modern and the decor is beautiful. There is a small boot room on the ground floor with heated racks for boots. There is also a sauna etc on the top floor but we never used it.

The staff in the hotel were brilliant. Very friendly and attentive. We ate in the hotel restaurant on our first evening and it was absolutely superb, so good that we used it again on our last night and it was equally as good. The breakfasts were also great with a large buffet selection as well as the option to order omelettes, eggs etc. I would highly recommend this hotel and its staff and would not hesitate in returning.

This is a great hotel in a perfect location for everything. Access to the ski lift is a five minute walk and the gondola lifts are approximately 10 mins walk away as well. Next door to the hotel are plenty of bars and restaurants for apres ski and nightlife and gay bars of Solden.

They call themselves a living resort but I find it more a boutique hotel with 5* service. From check-in to breakfast to dinner all service is with a smile. The rooms are very modern with an Austrian touch and very comfortable and spacious.

Cute spa bag is ready in your room for you to use during your stay. The spa offers 3 types of saunas and a relaxation area + balcony with view over the village and tea and water and a small snack is free of charge.

Breakfast offers many choices and I can totally recommend a dinner in the evening!
Also in the summer time the hotel offers you a premium Ötztal card that gives you free access to the major cable carts and places like the Aquadome!

Comfortable room (no aircon) with not much spare floor area around the bed but spacious balcony compensated somewhat. Bonus of UK TV channels available rather than just the usual CNN. Good underground car parking garage with some spaces outside hotel as well. Breakfast very good with gluten-free bread available on request and decent coffee.

Outstanding comfort in a homely atmosphere. From the welcoming, the brilliant restaurant, the luxurious wellness, the room, yes even the interest about the guests participation in the Ötztaler Radmarathon is worth mentioning. This kind of luxury is really delicious and relaxing.

This hotel is a type of leisure accommodation you always miss if you decided to try something else.

The facilities at the hotel are second to none and spotlessly clean, their spa is situated on the top floor that offers spectacular views across the valley. It was for us after a day out, the perfect way to unwind and relax. Everything about the spa was superb, from the heated waterbeds to the swing chairs.

This is a 4* hotel with 5 star levels of service and comfort. From the time you arrive and are given a glass of prosecco or juice in a design reception you know this is a level above 4*

Excellent food (too much) which is of a higher standard that most 4 stars with plenty of choice. We had a charming waiter for our stay. Fine bar with a helpful barman.

Great rooftop pool and spa. Lovely swing chairs beside the pool to lounge in and enjoy the pool.Great views of the mountains and valley from the jacuzzi on the rooftop deck.

The rooms in the hotel are amazing. They are large and nicely decorated with good amenities and large storage place.

The staff (reception, spa, restaurant) is very very friendly and tries to help in every way. The spa has a large pool with outdoor Jacuzzi and family sauna where you don’t have to be naked. and then there is a huge spa area where you go naked mixed man and women.

Large light airy rooms all with balconies and beautifully decorated. Large bathroom and extensive storage and wardrobe space. The pool and spa is superb and to be outside in the spa with the snow falling must be one of the steps to heaven. Staff excellent and most speak superb English and were kind to my german! The food is varied and of such a high standard too. Would highly recommend it even if you’re not James Bond!
