To enjoy the last days of summer we visited the luxury hotel Das Central – Alpine. Luxury. Life. in Sölden in September. The hotel surprised us with pleasure for all senses and relaxing luxury in Tirol. The mix of tradition, nature and wellness has been one of a kind…
Das Central is located in Sölden in the middle of the wonderful Austrian Ötztal. Surrounded by three “Three-Thousander” mountains the hotel offers incredible views in any direction.
With a gondola you can reach the top of the Gaislachkogl mountain which is only ten minutes away.
THE HOTEL CONCEPT
The slogan of the hotel is “Alpine. Luxury. Life.” and promises relaxing luxury which starts the moment you arrive! Everything is about indulgence, well-being and the unique nature of Tirol. We felt very welcome from the very first minute since the hotel has a luxurious but cozy interior and the staff was always extremely kind with a smile on their face.
What makes Das Central so special is not only the perfect location to explore the surrounding and to go skiing in the wintertime but it is also the ideal hotel for a spa holiday. That’s how we had the perfect mix of exploration & wellness 🙂
Das Central has many different room categories so couples, families and friends will find the perfect opportunity. No room is like another and all are designed with elaborate details.
During our time at the Das Central we stayed in a Junior Suite with one living and one bed room. Every morning the first thing I did was stepping outside to our terrace to enjoy the crisp air and incredible views while sipping a tea.
I really liked that we had two bathrooms – a smaller one with a toilet plus shower and a second one connected to our bedroom with a huge bath tub to relax.
The luxurious Presidential Suite
During a tour through the hotel we especially fell in love with the 205 m² huge presidential suite! In an exclusive chalet style they built a luxurious suite with two bedrooms, a sauna & whirlpool together with many more amazing details! It would be the perfect accommodation for a family or friends for an unforgettable stay in Tirol.

Breakfast & Restaurant
The breakfast and the dinner will be served at the high crowned hotel restaurant Feinspitz. In the morning the food gets served at a gourmet buffet. Additionally you can choose from the à la carte menu with fresh egg dishes. From 7-11am we had enough time to enjoy every part of the breakfast to the fullest: From the fresh juices, local products and the international dishes.
Incredible cuisine 3048m above sea level
Around ten minutes away from the hotel is the gondola located which leads to the top of the Gaislachkogl. Here – 3048 m above the sea level – is the gourmet restaurant ice Q located where we enjoyed an exquisite 3-course-menu. The glass restaurant offers an incredible view over the Ötztal Alps and has been the most memorable food experience during our travel!

The award-winning Restaurant Feinspitz
In the evening the dinner gets served at the restaurant Feinspitz with a daily changing 5-course-menu (which is also available as a vegetarian option). Every dish has been a highlight for us cause the composition of the tastes and the presentation have always been perfectly arranged.
A well sorted wine cellar
In 2016 Das Central got voted as the best wine hotel in Austria. The well sorted wine cellar of the house includes more than 30.000 bottles with a some rare pieces. No matter if wine expert or simply wine lover – the well informed staff finds the perfect choice for everyone.

The Spa Area
Water world Venezia
After an adventurous day in the Ötztal or during a gloomy day the best idea is to relax in the water world Venezia!
As the name already implies the water- and sauna area of Das Central is designed like Venice. We spotted the reconstruction of famous bridges together with a huge screen which almost gave us the feeling to be actually in Venice.
All together ten different saunas and steam baths, a whirlpool and a huge Venice Pool are located on three floors so you can literally spend hours to relax. If you’re courageous enough you can cool down with crashed ice from the ice fountain after your sauna session.
Alpine. Luxury. Spa.
The spa area of Das Central has a wide catalogue of massages, beauty- and body treatments which are incredibly relaxing. During a rainy day we enjoyed a full body massage which has been very calming. I have been very pleasantly surprised by the heated massage bench which I never experienced in any other hotel before.
During the most beautiful and sunny day of our stay in Sölden we did a road trip to the glacier road in Sölden which is located just around the corner! Every guest of the hotel has the possibility to rent the brand new BMW model. In our case this has been a BMW 840i convertible with x-drive which has been the perfect choice to cruise through the mountains on a sunny day.
Das Central in Sölden is the perfect choice for a mix of a wellness, exploration and pleasure – and in the wintertime also for skiing. During our stay we felt right at home thanks to the warmth of the staff and the cozy atmosphere so we are already looking forward to return 🙂
