“Could do better”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

Staff all very friendly and helpful. However the hotel let them down. Room was in need of update. Although we had a mini kitchen, there were no facilities to make tea or coffee which at the end of the day would have been good. Towels in bathroom were very small, not much larger than a hand towel. Spa facilities, poor. Jacuzzi was cold and one was not working. Food was poor, on most occasions luke warm. At night room was very noisy from bars directly below, this lasted to at least 2am. Apart from that Soldeu as a ski resort is excellent.

Room Tip: Not sure if there are good rooms as there are bars and night clubs at rear and front of hotel. Our r...

I have stayed in this hotel approximately 10 times. For me, on a quality to price ratio it's the best in Soldeu. The hotel is approximately 150m from the main gondola and it is right in the centre of the Soldeu village. It is within a stones throw from everything that you need for your ski holiday. The hotel manager is a great guy and will try his best to sort out any small problems you may have. He is one of the few managers in Soldeu that has made a decision to make his hotel non-smoking. Believe it or not most of the hotels have not banned smoking yet.  The rooms in this hotel are excellent, the family rooms have small kitchen areas with a fridge for you to prepare food etc... Although, I always stay half-board and the food is very good. Excellent choice of salad and a large choice of deserts. This year there was even beans for breakfast for us British :-). For me the staff at this hotel are great too. I am leaning Spanish and they always make an effort to have a little chat with me. In conclusion, I can completely recommend this hotel and will continue using it for many years to come.
My tip: Before you go learn a little Spanish for the spanish speaking restaurant staff, it goes a long way.

Staff were generally very helpful and friendly. Room bit shabby needed a lick of paint. No coffee/tea making facilities in room which woul have been nice. Interior mini-bar dirty. Food quality generally good and reasonably diverse. We stayed 7 nights and we would say 2 nights food was quite poor quality and cold/Luke-warm. Free Wi-Fi was a bonus and locker area was excellent. Overall we enjoyed our week's skiing and the overall facilities.

Before staying at this hotel, I was very sceptical due to the recent reviews posted here on trip advisor. If it is luxury that you are looking for then do not go to the Himalaia, go the the sports village or even more luxurious is the sports hermitage. However, the Himalaia is great for a base and is a perfectly located as it is close to the gondola and main bars. The rooms are large with a separate bedroom and also a kitchen and dining area. We were on the fourth floor at the back of the hotel and there was no noise. The rooms are warm but there are thermostats to control the temperature, we soon had the room to a comfortable temperature. There is a great selection of food but as many people have commented, it can be luke warm so I would suggest trying to get to the restaurant at 7.00 for first sitting. The bar and lounge area is very nice and the children loved playing in the play area as well as playing pool and table football. There is no need to hire lockers at the gondola station as it is a 2 minute walk to the gondola. The lockers in the basement of the hotel are sufficient, I recommend taking your own padlock as the hotel do charge. The basement can get very cold though so we kept our ski boots in our room. This hotel offers excellent value for money but please do not go with expectations of luxury. It is a great base, comfortable rooms, excellent location and all staff go out of their way to be friendly and helpful. We did not experience any rude staff. I would certainly return.

Room Tip: I would recommend the 3rd or 4th floor, request a room at the back of the hotel.

The most uncomfortable beds in the world, ended up sleeping on the sofabed the entire week. Building was way too hot, slept with the window open, and on some nights it was unbearable. Friendly staff, food was poor. I've stayed in better 3 stars. Will deffo not stay there again.

This is our second visit to this hotel. It is perfectly located for the gondola and all restaurants and bars. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Some people were complaining about the food quality and choice. Below is a typical night time menu, personally I think that is good. on occasions the food might be a little cooler than you would like, so there is a microwave to solve the problem.

Soup
Salad
a choice of 5 or 6 main course dishes
a chef cooking 2 diferent main course dishes
a choice of over 10 deserts.

one night the main course included Mousaka, Ribs, Stroganof and steak. The only problem I had was which to choose!!!

The beds were very good and all have new matresses.

Finish the skiing day with a visit to the FREE sauna and spa pool.

Highly recommended.

This was my first trip to Soldeu and I have since rebooked for a second time. The hotel is situated in the centre with easy acess to all facilities within Soldeu. It is also a short walk over to the Gondola (2 minutes.) Free ski lockers were also provided in the hotel basement (Take a small padlock.) The food was superb with plenty of choice both morning and night. People did mention the noise at night, this was not noticed at all and our room was situated above one of the main bars in the town.

The only isssue we found was the other people moaning about nothing!!!

Overall a good hotel situated very close to the slopes..............see you next month!
