Best Known For
In the heart of Soller old town, almost invisible from the road, lays an incredible townhouse – Hotel 1902. It’s 6 guest rooms and suites overlook a private walled courtyard, complete with a stylish pool and views up to the rugged Mallorca mountaintops. A vision delivered and ran faultlessly by a British couple since early 2017.
The Good Stuff
A daily ritual comes in the form of the 3-course breakfast. The changing menu is freshly prepared from local produce and complimented with pressed orange juice from the surrounding citrus groves. Served in the tranquil courtyard where the aromas of lavender and citrus complete the experience. Inside the townhouse luxury and convenience continues: the Danish brand Meraki’s cosmetics fill the bathrooms and the coffee machine is within stretching distance from the bed!
Homely yet luxurious with indisputable style.
Inside the hotel – 10/10
Restored original features fill the townhouse; tiled floors and full height shutters are complimented by well-chosen art and contemporary design. Rooms feature Kingsized beds, 600 thread count cotton, rain showers and, in some rooms, freestanding baths.
Outside the hotel – 10/10
A cobbled street leads you deeper into the town to a charming square in front of the cathedral has 360 views of the Tramuntana Mountains and a plethora of restaurants (my personal favourite Ca’n Pintxo). A wooden tram goes back and forth to the port, which is just a couple of miles away, whilst the 1912 train takes you in and out of Palma. Walking through Soller feels like you’ve stepped into a painting, with viewpoints and beautiful scenes wherever you look.
