“Anneli & Stefan Sweden”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

We had a wonderfull stay March/April!
Our first stay in Hochsölden and the hotel but not the last. We will return next year. We enjoyied our gormé week with wine- and cheesetasting and more. For next season the hotel will be more perfect and we will probably not get a better stay in another place after the rebuilding with a new wellnes area, outdoor pool etc. Greate location for skiing, direct access and a sun terrass with beautiful views. The family Fender and its team are welcoming and helpful and give the best care. You feel at home. Perfect/lovely room but the ventilation ought to be a bit
improved, it became to warm and humid during night. We slept with a bit open window and it worked for us. However, I expect the ventilation is a part of the rebuilding. The food was very good all over/ high class, the only thing in our opinion is that some dining/evening main courses could be a bit more spicy.
The wine is excellent with a huge range of different choises so be prepared for some extras.

This was our 2nd stay in this family run hotel. What I can say is that there are little extras everywhre that mean for me that the Family Fender offer something more than the standard.

If you like good wine you will not want to leave. Herr Fender is a qualitied expert and can offer expert advise and for about Eur 50 will give a wine tasting in the cellar.

If you ike good food you will not want to leave. All buffets vary each day. look out for the ice cream buffet. If you cannot wait for evening dinner the ski pause on the sun terrasse mid afternoon can keep you going.

Fantastic, relaxing, love to go again.

Room Tip: The superior rooms are worth asking for

We staid the third time in this fantastic hotel. Everything is just right: direct acces to the slopes, perfect room, very clean, nice wellness, good food and the best care from the family Fender and wonderfull staf. This year they have great plans for the hotel. We saw the plans and drawings. Just awesome. We booked right away for the next year. Thank you for a wonderfull and the best week.

Room Tip: Ask for the best "Aussicht".

a charming hotel right on the slopes of Solden ski resort. The Fender family was very welcoming and ensured us of a great week. I advise to join the early-morning ski safari with Herr Fender! The staff was really warm. We were also able to charge our electric car at the hotel. Will definitely come back!

On the piste, up the mountain and avoiding the crowds. Good sized rooms. Food and wine five star. Great location and lovely hotel. Could not fault it. Staff are really friendly and helpful and the facilities are everything you you want from a hotel of this type in this location but as up the mountain Hochsolden is probably not the best for young families or non skiers. I understand the hotel is being extended this year but am sure it wont lose its charm. Will be back one day...... perhaps in the summer too.

As a summary, this is the hotel for you if you want:
- nice hotel, nice staff
- ski-in-ski-out
- romantic spot bit farther away from town center with great views overlooking the whole valley
- good breakfast included
- good lunch included
- good dinner included
- preferably you have a car then you have easy access downtown (couple of km down the hill)

Make a booking, now =)

Now, for a little background. We booked this hotel because it popped up available suddenly and it looked very nice. We rented a car from Innsbruck airport and drove here. We found the hotel easily without any gps navigation:

"From Innsbruck airport, drive to the nearest highway and turn right towards Bergenz. After some thirty minute drive get off highway and drive towards Öztal. After some thirty minute drive straight you will reach Sölden and after passing the downtown there will be a right turn up the mountain to Hochsolden. Note a tight left turn junction not long after the mountain road begins. You will find the hotel sitting on top of the mountain."

We arrive at the hotel, very welcoming staff. Have to admint, we did not actually even know it is a "pension" (breakfast and dinner included) but we quickly learned that our price included actually also lunch (they call it 'skier's snack' but it's whole food...). The breakfast is a nice buffet with lots of variety even for vegetarian tastes. Their dinner is a sort of fine dining style experience so it is very romantic in a way and gives you a very nice holiday experience. No need to eat out (if you are vegetarian, remember to put it in writing in your dinner preference).

When you go skiing it's just outside, you wear your skis and ski down the hill. When you return from skiing you can ski down the slope back into the hotel. Perfect. The hotes has very nice saunas (beware: naked people there!!).

Overall, highly recommended. I would give a 4- (four minus) stars to the hotel, because they still have some things to improve:
- it would be nice to warn foreigners about the naked sauna in a brochures, there was no mention beore we was already in the sauna ;)
- next door hotel has a swimming pool, would be nice if the two hotels had some kind of agreement that it would be possible to visit their pool?
- at the hotel there is no gprs or 3g data reception, maybe discuss with the tele companies?
- on the hotel 2nd floor there is no wireless network, maybe arrange a few more base stations to make sure each floor has coverage in each room; I had to either sit in the stairway or lounge to access internet
- there is a noticeable problem with the ventilation of the hotel; when you enter 2nd floor hallway there is a funny smell and in your room there is even more smell if you did not leave window open. I beleive they need a ventilation specialist to investigate what's the problem. They are wasting a whole lot of energy if everybody keeps their windows open. I had significant difficulty for example sleeping because the air was very bad (smelly, humid) and we could not ofcourse keep the window open during sleep in the winter time. Very serious problem.
- seasonal brochure (in hotel room) mostly in german, english descriptions would be nice
- about the restaurant: lunch was only for meat-eaters, would be nice to have veggie option; dinner was served very nicely: plates are heated and 'wiped clean' in fine dining style but have oily wipemarks and fingerprints, minor detai easy to fix; increase coordination in the restaurant, often we left a half full water bottle previous night for the next day but it was lost, this happened couple of times and is bit annoying; another coordination thing is that more than one waiter will ask you same questions over and over, this is annoying and gives you the feeling that nobody is coordinating, they might ask you 3 times do you want coffee for breakfast, for example. Also the foods could have bit more flavour to them, bit more kick, even though they are nice already.
- in the sauna area, the infrared saunas did not work very well, maybe do something about it asap? Also the cold water bucket was broken, maybe fix that asap?

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room with a good view. Was very nice. If you need wireless access from your roo...

Dear Martin,

thank you for your great effort to review our hotel. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us.

We wrote down everything you mentioned and are working on the improvement of our service in the restaurant and the vegetarian offers (skiers snack and dinner).
After our large refurbishment in summer 2014, the ventilation will be improved, the sauna area separated into a naked area and the textile sauna for the whole family and the wi-fi connection will spread over the whole hotel. At the moment the internet connection in the rooms is mentioned to be a wired connection, wi-fi is working in the lobby and hotel bar.

We hope to welcome you back in our hotel after our renovation and wish you all the best.

Kind regards

Family Fender
and the Schöne Aussicht team

The hotel is family run, paying attention to all details. The staff could find the exact right balance between high quality service and not disturbing and/or overdoing stuff.
The views from the dining rooms are magnificant supported by a lot of creativity by the chef. The staff went far and beyond assisting us addressing personal issues that had nothing to do with our stay.

Overall, it was a great skiing vacation and the hotel is highly recommended.
