The oldest hotel in Hochsölden at 70 years, the Alpenfriede is one of a small handful of hotels in this small, tranquil resort – and arguably one of the best. Sitting on the mountain at over 2000m above sea level, this adorable family-run hotel is located slopeside on the Ötztal’s gorgeous sun terrace.
With direct access to the piste, all you have to do is pick up your equipment from the hotel’s ski room and head out the door onto the slopes – it’s pretty easy to reach Sölden, too.
The hotel, run by the Lengler family since 1936, incorporates Alpine themes with rustic décor and modern comforts. Tree-trunk coffee tables accompany plush, stylish sofas in the lounge areas and ambient lighting sets the mood in the hotel bar. The bedrooms, you’ll find, are spacious, simple and homely – exactly what you need to help you have the best night’s sleep.
Whether it’s breakfast or dinner, the award-winning chef, Gerhard, will whip up delicious dishes with total ease and is happy to work around any dietary needs you may have. The rest of the staff at the Alpenfriede are as attentive too, offering friendly service at all times.
Your day doesn’t have to end when you force yourself away from the slopes, as the hotel’s small wellness area can help you unwind and relax. With stunning views over the mountains from the relaxation area, you can sit back and reminisce about your day or dream about what you’re going to do tomorrow, or step into one of the saunas or steam bath for some extra pampering.
So if you’re passionate about skiing and snowboarding, and you want to feel like the mountain is yours and yours only, the Alpenfriede could be the perfect place for you.

Austrian twin beds
Austrian twin beds are very common in Central Europe. They’re simply one large bed frame containing two single mattresses, both with separate duvets and linen sets, that cannot be separated. Separate twin beds are less common and can often be head to head beds, rather than side by side, if they are available.
