First time in Solden and not sure what to expect. We booked with Ski Total. No worries with the Hermann - we had a great week.
We stayed in the Panorama wing, which was ideal for our family of 4 adults because it was like staying in your own 2-bed apartment with separate lounge including flat screen TV with UK channels, fridge and kitchen.
These rooms have been recently refurbished to a high standard and come with balconies offering stunning views of the valley. There is a dedicated ski room, too, with boot warmers.
The chalet also has a spa area with sauna and steam room which we used daily. Pity there's no Jacuzzi!
Clare, Gemma and the rest of the staff ensured we had a lovely, hassle-free week. We were their first group of guests and they pulled out all the stops. Nothing was too much trouble.
The food was consistently delicious and imaginative. One of our party is 'gluten-free' and they were very well catered for.
We appreciated the location of the chalet because it's in a quiet location with stunning views. You can ski in to within 5 minutes' walk and out after 7-10 minutes' walk to the red that runs down to the Gigioch gondola.. Also, the official ski bus, which stops virtually outside, is supplemented by the chalet's own minibus, so getting to the snow is really very easy. Michael, the driver, will also, very helpfully, get you to and from town on request on the dining out evening.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend staying here, however, I did not see the rooms in the main part of the chalet.
The skiing in Solden is good, particularly for intermediates and above, with plenty to keep you going for a whole week. There are two glaciers and lots of snow making, so pretty snow-sure. For 10€ you can also upgrade your lift pas which allows a day's skiing in Obergurgl, 20 minutes up the valley on the free ski bus. This is worth doing.
There's plenty of 'apres' in Solden with lots of bars and restaurants. However, the village is fairly spread out along one main road and we didn't find it as picturesque as some other resorts, but that's a very minor point.
If you're hiring skis/boards etc we used Clever & Sporty, booked through the AlpinSports website, which was much cheaper than the other shops. The equipment was mostly brand new, too.
