- "One of the top 20 Mediterranean beach hotels (2015)" - The Sunday Times
- "Ringed by mountains and surrounded by orange groves in the northwest, Soller is one of Mallorca's most charming towns, and L'Avenida it's coolest address. A turn-of-the-century townhouse converted into a 12-room boutique hotel, it has a slightly naughty style with statement wallpaper, thick drapes and throws. The terrace around the neat pool area is perfect for breakfast and lunch." - The Times
- "L'Avenida Hotel is by far the most sophisticated place in this great town" - Conde Nast Traveler
- "The building itself is gorgeous and very comfortable. We had an enormous and very comfortable room. The breakfast was really lovely and had something for everyone. The location is extremely handy and the price really very reasonable. But the real plus of this place are the staff. I can honestly say I've rarely felt so at home, they managed to help us with everything we needed without ever feeling obtrusive." - Trip Advisor
- "The food was fantastic, and retained a wonderfully home-cooked feel. The rooms were lovely and the location in the heart of Soller surrounded by the mountains, quite breathtaking. They have obviously put a huge amount of thought into the detail of making the hotel feel like a home away from home. I couldn't recommend it highly enough." - Trip Advisor
Soller has a long history of trading, becoming a major trader of olives and citrus fruits. This trade created wealth that can be seen in the streets of Soller today, with manor houses and gardens, and a beautiful church in one of Mallorca's most charming squares. The town is filled with pretty lanes, and there is a vintage train that runs to Palma and a tram that takes you to the coast where you will find the small resort of Port de Soller. Soller is also renowned for art and culture, with four museums and galleries to visit. One of Mallorca's best fiestas also takes place in Soller, the Moros y Cristianos Fira & Firo, held during the second week of May.
