Palma de Mallorca takes pride in its lodging scene. The city is known for offering enjoyable hospitality, captivating architectural styles, and amenities to its guests. Positioned right in the heart of all the action with significant landmarks at a stone’s throw, these are my hotel picks when it comes to style combined with a top location. 

Es Princep

An ideal urban retreat for those who prefer to be surrounded by the classic charms of the old town. This delightful 5-star boutique hotel in the La Calatrava district combines majestic views of the Mediterranean sea and a prime site in the historic part of the city of Palma.

The warm, cozy interiors of the view-soaked rooms are defined by dark wood furniture and modern, artful accessories. The use of stone, wood, and leather materials enhances the earthy appeal. Ultra-comfortable bed linen and mood lighting notch up the luxury factor.

Space out

Unwind at the infinity pool and full-service spa on the rooftop. Stay on after dark to catch the twinkling townscape and bay. 

Can Bordoy

A heritage mansion that has revolutionized Palma de Mallorca’s historic Old Quarter with its unique design and innovative concept of luxury hospitality. Encased in expansive walled gardens in the middle of the bustling city center, this is an exclusive hideaway boasting an excellent downtown location.

Hotel Can Alomar

This former palace turned into a fine five-star boutique property is a calm haven in town. One of the most eye-catching architectural features is a 19th-century chequerboard staircase. Statement artworks dot the property.

Ogle at the views of the cathedral and the bay of Palma from the roof terrace. Relax by the plunge pool and solarium. Grab the best table in the De Tokyo e Lima restaurant.

Brondo Architect Hotel

Quirky defines the persona of this four-star urban boutique hotel, where 17th-century regional architecture meets modern sensibilities. It is located in the hub of all the action in town, and all major attractions are within comfortable walking distance.

Hotel Cort

Scandinavian and Majorcan styles merge seamlessly in this four-star boutique, transformed artfully from a 19th-century property. A central location in historic Plaça Cort keeps you close to dining, sightseeing, and shopping options.
