The Hotel Palau Sa Font - vibrant colours, modern art works and designer furniture welcome guests to the spacious reception and bar area. The funky bold decor is in contrast to the ancient old town outside, and is proving a hit with Palma's stylish visitors.

If you think that a 16th century building with a historic background could be intriguing, if you like warm, familiar atmosphere, if you are attracted to architectural design contrasts and lack of ostentation and if you prefer buying at the village shop rather than the shopping center, then this hotel is the ideal spot! You will get the "old fashioned" kind of service with easy-going and charming staff, who have a real connection to the place. 

The bedrooms are spread out on each level and are hip yet calm and soothing.  All come with modern comforts, cleverly hidden behind aesthetic facades to add an uncluttered, sleek style. 

Enjoy the presence of art displayed in a unique and subtle way, original handmade furniture, and Mediterranean-shaded floors mixed with the convenience of staying in the heart of the old town, just two minutes away from museums, restaurants and shops, but still secluded at the quiet end of a lively street.

This is an ideal place to recharge the batteries before hitting the shops, good restaurants and bustling nightlife. The hotel offers to lend you as much or as little assistance as you desire, so that you feel looked after, but relaxed. And they love what they do, so they are always pleased to see regular guests, and also look forward to meeting new ones.

For yachtsmen and crew: If you are looking for a hotel near to Palma's marina, whilst avoiding the "corporate hotels" on the front, the Palau Sa Font is a 2-3 minute walk from the pontoons. Lastly, its worth a note to mention that the hotel has a reputation as one of the best breakfasts in town (non-guests by request only!)

For more information or to make a booking, please use the enquiry links on this page or visit the website.

Worth knowing

Well trained pets are welcome in this hotel. Make sure you notify the hotel staff at the time of your booking. The staff kindly ask you not to bring pets to breakfast or the pool area, as a courtesy to other guests.
