The Soldanella is a lovely family run hotel, where Barbara and her team extend an extremely friendly welcome. It is on the main street in the heart of Madesimo next door to the Olympic rental shop for complete convenience.
It is a simple 2* but the rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable with private bathrooms (half the rooms have bath tubs which is unusual for a 2* in Italy). There is a range of double, triple and quad with bunk bed rooms, and one set of interconnecting rooms for a family.
Rooms on the second of the two floors are a little larger (there is no elevator). There is spacious games room with table football and table tennis downstairs and a well thought out combination of outside ski room and separate cupboards for your ski boots/shoes at the entrance to the hotel.
The inviting reception area, bar and restaurant belie the 2* rating and the friendly attentive service of the hotel staff continues here. Half board of typical local cuisine is taken in the main restaurant and there is a busy pizzeria, popular with locals and outside guests at the front of the hotel.
We have good reports of the half board food and can advise from first hand experience that the pizzas and tagliata of beef in the pizzeria are superb!
