“Good clean friendly hotel”
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

Stayed 3-10 March 2013. Room size was ok, very clean, glasses not cleaned each day though. We're told we would be getting a room with a balcony, but didn't, not fussed though. No coffee/tea making facilities in the room, for a 4* should be standard. We did half board, sat at table 13, had the best waitress in the world, such brilliant service and friendliness. Food was very good, not cold as some would say, but warm, large wide variety. Got a pass to the wellness centre, had to be used on day 1 or 2 before 3pm, we did half day skiing on day one and then used the wellness centre, highly recommended!
Lockers just over the road, watch out on the pavement/side-walk, black ice, could fall before you even hit the slopes, but all in all very convenient.
I am usually very fussy at hotels, and I couldn't really fault the service and cleanliness, however, wifi only available in reception area, but very nice seating area. They make their money on glasses of wine at the table, for Andorra, I thought was a little pricy. But all-in-all, we would stay at Sport again.

we stayed for a skiing week:
- the rooms are adequate with minor hitch of medium sized bathtubs instead of showers (the curtains are always sticking to your body when taking a shower)
- food is very good with more then ample choice of main and side dishes, when we have asked for warmer cups to make better cappucino the waiters were bringing specially warmed ones for us, this was a nice touch
- ski lockers are conveniently located on the way to the lift, some 50m from hotel, 100m from the gondola lift entrance
- two ways to get to the lift: either you go to the gondola or take a lift down to the slopes level and take 100m walk to the chair-lift. The decision depends on quantity of people waiting for gondolas. Beginning of march 2013 the longest wait for gondolas was 5..7 minuts so just enough to warm your ski shoes ;)
- slopes access - very easy to blue and black runs, 10min on ski to nice red slopes in El Tarter

Room Tip: to get better view try to get rooms on 3rd and above floors and facing the slopes on the other hand...

We are currently on holiday in Andorra and staying at hotel sport. The hotel is very dated and dirty. The bath and basin looks as if it hasn't been cleaned for at least several months as covered in dust and hair! The rooms are very basic but don't spend long in them so its ok. The food within the hotel is mediocre, it's buffet style and is the same thing every single night, the staff within the restaurant are very helpful and pleasant.

Our hell came from storing our ski equipment in the hotel lockers which are provided to you. The lockers are based on five people sharing however, we are only a couple so we had to share our locker with 2 'strangers'!!! We were slightly worried about this as we have our own equipment and were worried it would go 'missing'.

On our 4th day we put our skis and snowboard away in the locker and came back to them the following morning to find a huge penetrated crack in the board. My partner was not at all amused and we voiced it to the hotel manager, the holiday rep and also the supervisor in the locker room.

We took the board to the local repair store and they advised the board was irreparable and unrideable. This was basically a £500 snowboard down the drain! The hotel held no responsibility for the damage and called us liars and said it was caused on the slopes although it wasn't, they didn't listen to us and were so unhelpful and abrupt and because of this we will not be coming back to the Sport Group Hotels and we would advise others to stay at the Himalaya Hotel down the road, as its dry stylish, modern and comforting. Our travel rep however, was very sympathetic and advised the hotel just wasn't listening to us.

The Sport Group owns the majority of the shops, bars, hotels and restaurant in the Main Street at the top of the hill and I wouldn't trust them ever again with my ski equipment and the way they dealt with the whole situation was appalling.

We didn't let this ruin our last couple of days though, we did lots of shopping and enjoyed the slopes :-) we were also lucky to get some lovely snow and sun whilst in Andorra.

Room Tip: Stay at the Himalaya Hotel

Visited this hotel first week in February 2013, a week of incredible snowfalls. The hotel is comfortable, bright and inviting and the staff all lovely. food in the self service restaurant is excellent with your choice of main course cooked in front of you to your liking and there is a great choice for all courses.
Altogether a welcoming comforting haven very close to the main gondola if you are a skier/snowboarder and I would recommend it to anyone.

When I first visited the Sport Hotel it was the number one Hotel in Soldeu, that was 15 years ago, so has it stood the test of time? We came for a weeks skiing at the end of January -- the snow was great and the resort has really expanded with more Hotels and a vast ski area. So has the Sport kept up -- sadly no. The public rooms are fine, good decorative order but some of the furniture is looking past it's best, some chairs are actually broken. We were allocated a room on the 4th floor at the back overlooking a run down building site, at least it was covered in snow! The room was exactly as I remembered it from my previous visit although now it looked quite dated- definitely in need of an upgrade.
Free Wifi is available in the public areas, not in the rooms . We were given one free visit to the spa / wellness centre, which is shared by the other two newer Hotels in the Sport chain, the village and the Hermitage so the sport does not have it's own swimming pool , should you want a return visit it will cost you 36 Euros ! Quite a few of the resorts Hotels now have their own pools which are free to Hotel guests.
The food in the restaurant was good, with multiple choices from the buffet, fresh meat or fish was cooked to your order by the chef, BUT all hot food is Luke warm, cold plates add to the rush to the one microwave. Staff in all areas are helpful and attentive.
Apart from the other two sport hotels the original sport has the major advantage of it's position, -- just opposite the main gondola so three minutes and your on your way to the main ski area, but that's the only big plus point .
Come on Sport -- there are now other hotels in the resort which are as good as if not better, you need to up your game especially in the accommodation areas.

Room Tip: Make sure you specify a room at the front of the Hotel.

Spent a week at The Sport, unfortunately dislocated my shoulder skiing the first day so I was confined to the hotel for the whole week.

Start with the negatives:

Rooms were no way 4 star standard. Decent 3 star yes. Rooms definitely needed modernising with tea & coffee making facilities & perhaps a mini bar. No climate control either. radiators were permanently on so the room was stifling. Open a window you may ask? We tried that & ended up with a big pile of snow in the room! Rooms were way too noisy as well. Could hear everything next door & in the corridor. We had to be moved due to a large group of noisy inconsiderable welsh lads would congregate in the corridor every night causing carnage.
Also no wifi in the rooms, even though there was free wifi in the main foyer.

Onto the positives:

Service was excellent. The reception staff were incredibly attentive especially when we moved rooms. Bar staff were friendly and the guy serving us in the restaurant was absolutely superb. Food was very good. Always plenty of choice for breakfast and dinner.

Decor in the main part of the hotel was excellent. Very rustic and charming. Very clean & warm and smelling very nice. Location wise was perfect. Just over the road from the gondola and lockers. Made skiing effortless. There were plenty of bars around offering good music, live bands but they weren't too boisterous. Soldeu is a family resort, whereas Pas is like 18-30 on ice.

The view from our new room on the 4th floor was brilliant. Overlooked the village and had a mountain back drop. The views at the back apparently were of a building site and a wall, so request a front room if you want it. Some rooms have balconies too.

All in all good hotel, but rooms are a bit dated for a 4 star in an ever growing resort.

This was the first time i have skied in Andorra ... And what a great introduction to both the country and its skiing.
The hotel is bang opposite the main gondola and offers the most well-organised ski experience I've had other than the best ski in, ski out. Lift passes organised by reception at the standard price. check. Very efficient Ski hire shop right next to the lift. Check. Lockers to store everything in at night mere yards from where the lifts bring you up from the slopes. Check.
Staff were excellent, breakfast comprehensive (fresh waffles anyone?), and to top it all a complementary room to shower in before heading to the airport, when we finished skiing at 5pm.
We'll be back.
