Reviewed May 8, 2013

Lovely looking hotel ideally situated in the main square,extremely comfortable beds.If you want a
well cooked relaxing breakfast served by pleasant charming staff this place is not for you.Eggs extremely overcooked bacon incinerated, boiled eggs burst and should not have been served to guests,order was taken very abruptly and at least 4 mistakes were made.Waitress's came from the Basil Fawlty school of charm with an honours degree.

I can't really add much to what the other reviewers have said. This is great hotel.

Located overlooking the town square, it's an antidote to the boring chain type hotels that are prevelant nowadays.

Service is excellent, friendly and attentive but not intrusive. Although Tony is the owner, he seemed to leave the running of the hotel to his staff, all of which were without fail helpful. The Finnish Maitre d' was especially knowledgeable with regard to food and wine.

Breakfast was very good, good choice. Scrambled eggs with smoked salmon was particularly good, as was the freshly squeezed orange juice which you get almost everywhere on the island.

Evening meals were also top quality. Lamb with crusted olives was my fave. Tried the excellent local wines and usually finished the meal off with a (very) large Majorcan brandy.

Rooms were comfortable and quiet.

Soller is an interesting town in a beautiful area, with plenty of things to do and places to see.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

We booked online and weren't sure what to expect. Arrived by train, walked across bustling square and found Hotel la Vila tucked away in the corner. We were early but that wasn't a prob, staff very, very helpful and welcoming. We loved the decor, the old wrought-iron staircase, the wall paintings up to our room overlooking a palm tree. It was a true delight and I have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone who likes quiet elegance and charming surroundings. Its right in the centre of Söller so easy to walk everywhere. The bar as you step off the street is what you hope every Parisian hotel would have. Perfect for a post dinner cognac. Staff were lovely. We went in late October but will go back in early summer.

Room Tip: Room at back overlooked palm tree and mountains. Bliss

We stayed for three nights at this wonderful small hotel in the main square of Soller. It was just perfect for our short break - the staff were lovely, our room very clean and a really good size. The the food was fantastic, from the lovely fresh breakfasts to the excellent dinners and great wine. The location of the hotel is only a few minutes walk from the train station (we travelled by train from Palma to Soller) and the tram which travels to the Port of Soller regularly during the day. After our trips to the Port and various walks we really enjoyed sitting outise the hotel on the square watching the world go by over a few beers and glasses or Rioja. If you travel to Soller you shouldn't stay anywhere else but at La Vila.

Our recent stay at Hotel La Vila was excellent. The location, right on the main square could not be better and the service at the hotel is impeccable. Great breakfast and lovely late night coffee and cognac! Room very comfortable. We will definitely go back .

We stayed for one night having admired the building during a previous visit to Soller. We could not have received a warmer welcome on arrival and car parking had helpfully been arranged for us (it's well worth doing this in advance especially as there is a market on a Saturday morning) just a few minutes away. Our room was on the top floor overlooking the garden at the back, it was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. This is a beautiful building which has obviously been lovingly restored and the tiles and decor are just stunning. Breakfast was both plentiful and delicious with great coffee. If anything the portions are overly generous !. The lady who had welcomed us on arrival, and served us a drink outside that evening was back on breakfast duty and she could not have been more efficient or friendly. The location is fantastic and we would thoroughly recommend this little gem of a hotel if you are planning to visit Soller.

Room Tip: As you would expect in a building like this there is no lift so if this is likely to be an issue, wh...

Stayed at La Vila again for the second time in 6 months. The location is great, really well situated for exploring all the surrounding towns.
The food is good and the staff are really helpful and will do whatever they can to make sure your stay is everything one would want.
Will definitely stay here again when I return.
