“"W-Hotel" in Austria hiking & ski-town”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Sought a modern, affordable hotel in a great hiking town in Central Austria and this was simply perfect. For those familiar with the SPG Platinum program, this hotel felt similar to a Four Points by Sheraton: clean, modern, straight-forward Austrian breakfast spread, with super friendly and English-speaking staff. Four additional perfect features: 1) the nice sauna area with 4-5 different rooms, 2) that the ski-lift that goes highest up for hiking and mountain biking is immediately adjacent to the hotel, 3) outdoor free parking with plenty of spaces, 4) outdoor wrap-around patios perfect for summertime evenings with mountain views and pleasant sound of the nearby rushing river. Could not be more pleased - I asked management and they said the renovation was in 2011 but the whole property was so clean and new that I thought it must have been this year. Bravo. Most highly-recommended from a global traveler.

Room Tip: Excellent modern sauna/wellness area

We have been living in a lot of places in Tirol and this is the best place so far and are highly recommended. Example of this hotel splendid service :Our ski`s were missing and we were late to leave the airport. A girl from reception called us up on my mobile and asked if they should keep the dinner warm for us. As we already had eaten alternative food in Innsbruck we didn't want to bother them with this so I said we were ok. Then they asked if we would prefer a plate with bread and cheese. etc when we arrived. We were highly impressed that they really would bother to ask.
Room were nice and stylish with big tv`s with possibilities to connect external devices. Internet access all over the hotel and an superb ski-service downstairs for storing our ski`s and get advices about anything.
Location to the slopes are excellent and we all are extreme impressed by the service of staff, the smiles and also the food was top notch, with a lot to choose from.
If we come to Sôlden again. We would surely stay here once again.

This is a perfectly acceptable, somewhat up-market hotel. There are thousands like it in Austria. There was nothing wrong with it but nothing particularly memorable either. I'd guess the number of rooms at around 60-70.
- Parking is beyond excellent, the car park for one of the main ski lifts is right outside. You probably do not want to arrive during the Lift's opening hours though.
- The Ski room is downstairs in the sports shop, your boots will be warm and dry in the morning. If your skis need seeing to, no problem.
- If only one of the two ski lifts in Sölden is running, you will have to take the local bus because it won't be the one across the car park. The bus-stop is at that ski-lift.
- Smoking is permitted at the bar, although it is barely detectable in the restaurant.
- WLAN access is 5 Euros a day, 10 for 3 days. I'd guess 15 for a week.
- The rooms are large.
- Sauna area, freely available to hotel guests.
- We had half-board so I can't comment on food prices. The menu was 3-course with 2 choices (1 veggie), drinks prices were reasonable.
- The night life is nearby
- The hotel staff were friendly.

Room Tip: Mine overlooked the car park and I actually liked that.

We had a lovely time at the new Backelar Wirt hotel. It is just 3+ stars but very nice. We stayed as a couple in a family room because the regular rooms were sold out. The room was hugh, very comfortable, modern and clean: we loved it! Bathroom is also very nice with separate toilet (looks like a bunker but you are only a few minutes a day in this room hihi). The regular room was also good because I peeked in. Restaurant was more classic but nice and good food. In the morning you have to choose your main course for dinner. Breakfast was also nice. Sauna area we didn't use so we do not know but it looked nice. The bar was the only minus because it is situated by the entrance (cold when somebody comes in) and little ambiance. Service and presentation of the drinks was on the other hand perfect. So is the location of the hotel. Just a few steps and you are at the cable car so we found it perfect. The hotel is a couples hotel and not a family with kids hotel. The owner and his kids are not spontaneous people but we found them very friendly. We liked the daughter Anna and she also has knowledge about wines. When we visit Solden again we like to go back!
