We´ve been in Soldeu last year (Hotel Naudi), and indeed Galanthus is much better. It´s a clean, fairly new (open in 2007, if I´m not wrong); good food - extra points for the well served continental breakfast, minus the croissants - some days they seemed old and hard; very friendly staff (Irene, Pepi, Manu, Araceli, Cristina, Ivon were so warm and tried to do their best all the time); rooms with comfortable sizes; and a good spa, although the water in the main pool could be warmer.
The van service to Soldeu Telecabina goes every 10min and is spotless: I checked twice and it never took more than 3 minutes (really!). And Ivon, the driver, is a patient guy, so if you loose your time (remember to book in advance every day before), just wait for some room and he´ll take you anyway - in 9 days, we never had to wait for the next run...
Why not 5 stars? First, because of the mattress: they are not too bad, but they´re far from a good and firm mattress. The second reason is a mix of feelings: the hotel is located about 800m/1km far from Soldeu Village, what is good because you are far from the noisy pubs and bars, but if you want to go walking you have to be prepared for a snowy (in winter, of course...) and steepy climb, once the hotel is down Soldeu.
We´ll definitly come back (please improve the matresses!!), once the other best option is Hermitage Sport, tooo expensive.
Do avoid the 4th floor, once it´s just bellow the restaurant and the noise of the chairs will destroy your vacations - another point for the admistration to take care of for the next season.
