Hotel Citric Sóller2.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This is the fourth time myself and my partner have stayed at the Citric hotel and it was just as great this time around. The hotel is clean, and rooms cleaned daily and the staff are polite and helpful. The only down side is the rooms can get extremely hot at night and the ceiling fans do not do anything to assist in cooling the rooms down. We did have a portable fan, but again this was not enough to cool the room down. I was advised that there is a plan to install air conditioning in the rooms, but I am not sure when this would take place. I think that this hotel really would benefit from this addition and I would also suggest some sort of voil curtain on the balcony doors, this way you could leave the doors open without the fear of being eaten alive by mosquitoes in the night time. Another suggestion that I would make is for the addition of a fridge in the rooms so that you can keep your water or drinks cool. The hotel offers a room only, a bed and breakfast or half board option and the evening meals are a set menu. They are 3 course meals and the breakfast is a buffet style breakfast. The food is nice and fresh and presented well and the weekly menu is available in the reception area for you to view. The area itself is stunning and the hotel sits overlooking the port area and the bay area with uninterrupted views of the whole area. I would advise on a sea view room with balcony to take advantage of the views. The hotel is a 2-minute walk from the beach and sea area where there are plenty of bars and restaurants for you to take advantage of. There is night life in the area, but this is not tailored to the hardcore partier ( no night clubs) and is more for the people who enjoy taking in a nice meal and drink by the water side. You are able to walk the surrounding mountains or for the less adventurous there is a bus service and tram service that can take you to further away areas. I would advise on taking the tram into Soller itself, this is a stunning little town with a beautiful church. This is a place where you go if you want a relaxing holiday in a stunning location, but I would not suggest this if you want somewhere that is nosey and full of hustle and bustle. We are planning on coming back next year, but may have to look at an alternative hotel if there is no air conditioning installed when we do go and this would be a shame because we do like this hotel a lot, but it is just to hot in the night time to be able to get a good sleep.
This is a low budget hotel with a big budget sea view. Don't stay here if you don't have a sea view. Everything is adequate. Staff are friendly, helpful and nice. Not having AC is a real problem - making the nights were unbearably hot. The shower just about worked and didn't have hot water for most of the time - though this wasn't really a problem as it was way too hot to have a hot shower. Breakfasts were fine - juice machine was a bit bizarre in a country famed for fresh fruit. But the best part of this hotel was the view. Unbeatable, especially first thing in the morning. You won't be disappointed with the view.
We spent 7 nights at the hotel on the last week of June. Welcoming was very nice, we received a balcony as extra above our booking. Our room was clean and comfortable, furniture was proper, and we had an amazing panorama to the bay! We received cleaning service every day, fresh towels even - although we did not request. The bathroom is well equipped, hairdryer is provided, great shower with 2 different shower heads - you can enjoy a rain shower even, if you feel like :-) I would recommend to get something against the mosquitoes and don"t leave food free as ants will visit you very soon. Breakfast was perfect, vary of food was served: cold meat, bread, eggs, yoghurt, cornflakes, jam, fruit, pastries.... and different options for drinks without limit. The hotel location is great, not too croudy, it is a 5-minute walk distance from the central promenade, where you can find great restaurants. If you want to walk along the bay till the other end, it takes about 20 minutes, which is still comfortable. This hotel offered more than we expected. Staff is very friendly and helpful. We can recommend to stay here if you don"t expect luxury but you want to stay in a comfortable and nice hotel. We were completely satisfied, especially if we consider the hotel as a 1-star-hotel. We would definitely return on our next trip on Mallorca :-)
Stayed here for a weeks break . Nice clean hotel very helpful staff. We upgraded to a sea view which was lovely. Only downside no air con which made it extremely hot in room! A fan and ceiling fan was all to keep you cool. Apart from that a nice little hotel. We took the tram into Soller town which was nice. The little old cobbled streets and buildings were lovely and all led into the main square with its shaded cafes and bistros. In pourto soller the little cafe on the beach resco i think ? Made the best coffees! Bgt was a lovely little eatery the couple who run it were so nice and the burgers beautiful. We also ate at the Indian restaurant again food delicious and highly recommend! If youre prone to being bitten by insects take some decent repellant! We were bitten badly even with deet spray on!! We thought it was down to the trees and greenery but after talking to other travellers at the airport it wasnt so not sure whats new insect wise in Mallorca!!!!???? Other than that a lovely holiday
Fab location and a nice quaint hotel with a very friendly staff but the room was unbearably hot with no air conditioning!! Barely got any sleep as during the mid summer heat it was intolerable with just a fan. Shower was also a little messy with no shower door. Nice decor and ambience throughout the hotel.
This was a last minute budget hotel so we weren't expecting much and were amazed at the setting which was perfect: overlooking the bay with the Tramuntana mountain range as a backdrop; a short stroll to the mile and a half of restaurants along the beach and in the shade of Pine trees at the rear. The public areas are clean, cool and bright and the staff were friendly. The room on the second floor at the back opened onto a terrace that runs behind the hotel as it's set into a cliff. Very basic: bathroom, table, open hanging space; bedside tables and no drawers. No phone, clock, hairdryer etc but there was an electric portable fan. When we arrived the patio door was open so we didn't notice until we retired how hot the room became once that was closed, despite being in complete shade. There appears to be no other ventilation so unless you sleep with the door open it is very uncomfortable. It got so hot that we suspect the room must be next to some hot water pipes. Leaving the door open was not an option when asleep or out since there's nothing to keep people out of the terrace and the pines are home to hundreds of hungry mosquitoes. We both suffered numerous quite nasty bites even despite using repellent. Breakfast was continental and surprisingly good: cheeses, cold meat, fresh tomatoes and fruit, bread, croissants, pastries, cereals, yoghurt and reconstituted fruit juices. They do serve other meals but there is only one dish each day and you have to book it in the morning so we didn't bother since there was a huge choice of places to eat along the water front. The town has excellent transport links. As well as the historic electric tram to Soller from where you can take the magical wooden train through the mountains to Palma, there is also a regular and very reasonable bus service to Palma. The express takes 50 minutes or you can take the stopping service which serves Valldemossa and other points between. It's air conditioned and for €6.40 for the round trip is excellent value. From Palma there are trains and bus routes all over Mallorca so there is no need to hire a car. Palma has plenty to see whether it's historic monuments, shopping, beaches, bars or fine dining that appeal. Back in Port Soller there are boat trips in both directions along the coast. We took the one to Sa Calobra and the Torrent de Pareis which has amazing scenery and enough bars and ice cream shops to satisfy the many day trippers who go there.
Another great holiday at the Citric. I cannot fault this hotel for value, cleanliness, hospitality, location and the most exceptional staff anyone could wish for. Nothing is ever too much trouble for Lorena and the team. Breakfast - lots of options all cold but tasty. Evening meal - set menu, fresh local produce cooked well with vegetarian option if required We stayed in room 303 fabulous views and great size balcony, room cleaned daily & fresh towels. We can,t wait to return and would recommend to anyone. Thanks Lorena, Lydia and all staff Avril & Mark
Just returned did not no what to expect after reading some of the reviews. We had a great time it's small so it's a bit more personal all the staff are friendly from Lorena to the handyman everyone is just so helpful. We had a superior room it was a good size large shower loads of hot water,even had a hairdryer, our room was cleaned everyday there was a ceiling fan but it still felt very hot, the view of the bay was fabulous. It should be rated more than 2 star in my opinion It's excellent value for money air conditioning would make it perfect. Thank you for great stay would definitely stay again
My friend and I booked a week for half term. We were pleasantly surprised by the Citric Hotel. We arrived late at night so the reception staff were not on duty. We were checked in by the barman who literally just gave us our key. This was not a problem, at least we got a drink to enjoy on the hotel terrace at the front of the hotel. Don't be put off by the fact there is a road directly in front of the hotel hardly any cars use it. Our room was adequate with a good balcony and lovely sea view across the whole bay. The breakfast buffet was good with plenty of choice. The three course evening meal, a set menu for €13.90 was very good value if you liked what was on offer. I cannot praise all the staff highly enough, they work very long hours in a most conciencious way. This was a cheap hotel for Port de Soller but I would not hesitate to stay there again,
The location is great and once I 'upgraded' from a nearside room my view was lovely! My only complaint would be that whoever designed the shower left a very narrow access point. I had to wiggle round the glass - while not small (!) I am not obese - so this must cause a lot of people difficulty! Otherwise, friendly reception and I enjoyed my breakfast.
