Hotel Tyrol Soll
The Hotel Tyrol is really very popular. Traditional and comfortable are two of the most used words to describe it. The hotel is in a quiet position a short walk from centre of Soll. There are 60 Tyrolean style rooms all 4 star standard with the usual things included: hairdryer, cable programmes, safe etc etc. the wonderful breakfast is a self service buffet, so you can eat as much as you need to fuel a days skiing. The evening meal is waiter service and four courses deep (with 3 choices of main- so you are always guaranteed to have something that takes your fancy)
Hotel Eggerwirt. Only 30 rooms in this small and friendly hotel. It commands a central location in Soll, so it’s close to all the bars, shops and restaurants. Although many guest book here half-board due to the service and quality of food in the hotel, many only really venturing outside to go skiing and nothing else!
Sporthotel Modlinger. 36 rooms. 3 star. Family run. Stunning mountain views. Very Tyrolean. Very cosy lounge with open fire to warm through with a beer or two once you are back form the slopes. Run by the Mödlinger family the hotel is especially friendly to families and always feels like you are given the personal touch with excellent service.
Soll Ski Resort
Soll Ski Resort
Soll is a firm favourite with English speaking guests and is part of the Skiwelt linked skiing area. The modern lift network, 90 in total, can transport you across nine resorts: Soll, Ellmau, Going, Itter, Hopfgarten, Westendorf, Kelchsau, Brixem im Thale and Scheffau. Combined there are 123 ski runs which adds up to a whopping 284kms of skiing – you can’t ask for more than that!
And of course, you are going to get pretty thirsty doing that much skiing so its good to know there are many refreshment stops dotted around the mountains; pretty much one every other piste!
Part of the popularity of Soll is the world famous après ski and very active nightlife. Another part is the relatively short transfer from the airport (it’s only an jour away from Innsbruck), so it’s really stress free to get to.
The skiing is well suited to all abilities, as you might expect with the vast amount of pistes on offer. For those wanting to enrol in ski school it’s excellent and the instructors have a very good grasp of English. And for those with children too young to ski there are Ski kindergartens available, so you know your little one will be safe whilst you hit the slopes.
An interesting excursion if you want a break from the slopes for a day (a good idea to have a days rest if you do a two week skiing holiday!) is a trip to Salzburg. A nice day out to see the sites and refresh those legs before hitting the slopes again the next day.
