Reviewed 8 May 2014

A delightful hotel. Perfectly placed in the centre of all the hussle and bussle of town yet remarkably tranquil at the same time Room 6 had a stunning view. Breakfast was the best breakfast ever abroad and the evening meal while a little dearer than local restaurants was 10 times better in food quality so made it excellent value. I would return tomorrow but sadly due to work cannot. We will return later in the year. Well trained staff, run effortlessly, immaculate standards in everything they do. Sheer perfection!!!!

Note I have only graded this 5 out of 5 because there is not a 6 out of 5 option!

Room Tip: Room 6 at the top and front though there are a lot of steps but worthwhile.

Charming, characterful hotel, at the centre of the gentle action, yet surprisingly quiet, and with an extraordinary private dining garden.

Soller is easily accessed by the charming historic railway / tramway, which then can be taken down to the Porto Soller. An ideal base for a car-free holiday.

We have just returned from a great stay at La Vila in Soller and would recommend it to anyone else looking to stay in a most wonderful part of Majorca. The hotel is a delight and the staff are courteous and friendly. It's our first stay in the hotel but we have eaten in their restaurant a few times on a previous visit to Soller and would recommend you try the food on the menu. A little more expensive than the local cafe restaurants but well worth the extra euros. We again used the restaurant a couple of times during this visit and just like before the food was beautifully cooked and presented. We are already planning our return trip to Holel La Vila.

Great location on the central square in Soller but average front of house service for guests. Over promised on wifi access as this was not actually available in the rooms. And there's no secure storage for bikes if you are cycling although they say there is. Top floor rooms have a nice view.

Thank you for your opinion.
I would like to express the following: it is not said anywhere in our website that there is wifi in the rooms, although actually there is. What can happen sometimes is that the router or some repeater needs to be restarted, which obviously we don't know unless clients tell us. Downstaris there is wifi always.
About the storage for bikes, we use or garden which has no back entry, so obviuosly it is safe, because no one can go there without going though the whole hotel first. We have had a lot of people with bikes and this has never been a problem for anyone.
Thank you for staying with us!

Previous excellent reviews for this hotel are most accurate. It is a small intimate hotel, which we prefer, but boasted all the creature comforts including Mini bar, free safe and Wifi etc, which you would normally expect in only larger hotels. Attention to detail is second to none.

The building has been tastefully restored to its former early 1900's Victorian glory and is beautiful throughout with a magnificent central staircase and stained glass windows.

The hotel is situated right in the centre of Soller surrounded by a profussion of shops and eating houses although the hotel restaurant is superb in all respects, with perfectly prepared and cooked food together with an excellent wine list. Try the Soller prawns starter-excellent! The chef obviously takes great pride in his work with all dishes presented with reverence.

The staff were all friendly and helpful and interesting to chat to as well, with nothing too much trouble. The owner / Manager was present most days and is obviously very 'hands on' contributing to the smooth running of his establishment.

We would recommend to anyone and we will certainly return to this lovely hotel.

We really loved this hotel, it was so beautifully restored and such a wonderful place to stay. The room was very comfortable and clean, the person who took care of it did a great job. The highlight was breakfast on the terrace in the back. The fresh squeezed orange juice was the best I have ever had, and the bread and fresh fruit was delightful. The staff went above and beyond to take care of my husband at meal times, as he has a gluten allergy. They had special bread for him that he said was delish. The location in the town of Soller was perfect, and I have to say the most wonderful place I have ever had the good fortune to travel to. We will definitely be back :)

Thank you very much for your very nice comments!! Yes, i agree, Sóller is a wonderful place (for me it is the best :-) ) The oranges that we serve are so good because they are from Sóller, and the micro-climate here produces some of the best oranges in the world. Thank you again for your nice words!

But it didn't matter, we had a great time. Tony , the owner was very helpful before we arrived with advice on travel from the airport, the room, No.2, was clean, with a bath and overlooked the town square with it's cafes full of friendly locals and St.Bartholomew's church. Staff were all friendly and whilst you're obviously not going to get a real breakfast anywhere south of Brighton what was on offer was more than adequate, evening meals excellent with good local wines on offer, the only disappointment with the food was that Cod was the fish offering, us northerners get that all the time, something a bit more exotic would have been nice.
We had a very nice walk through the olive groves to the coast on the sunny day but when it rains all you have to do is walk across the square and jump on the wonderful old electric train and go into Palma or even closer to the hotel is the tram which takes you down to the coast. Really brave people could walk a little further and get on one of the very cheap local buses and tour round the island, the only drawback to this is the drivers seem to think they are F.Alonso. Go, you will not be disappointed
