When choosing Palma as a city break, we highly recommend you stay in the city centre so you can maximise your time without travelling around too much. Mallorca's capital has more than its fair share of options for accommodation thanks to its rise in visitors in recent years.
For couples looking for a more indulgent breakaway, the charming city offers an ever-growing number of boutique hotels. A few of our top picks include the Santa Clara Urban Hotel & Spa, which blends historic charm with modern design. It's perfectly situated just a short stroll away from the attractions of Palma city centre and boasts beautiful views of the cathedral from its rooftop terrace. A highlight is that you have the chance to unwind in its spa & wellness centre after a hard day of sightseeing and shopping.
Or perhaps you would like to stay in a 300-year-old palace? Otherwise known as the five-star Can Cera Boutique Hotel, its celebrated architecture includes a famous courtyard, high ceilings and palatial decoration. This place is located in the heart of the old town, where you are surrounded by a maze of cobbled streets, boutique shops and little museums. Once again, staying here means you are just a stone throw away from the main attractions.
Those with a passion for art, antiques and old palaces, will love the award-winning Art Hotel. This four-star hotel was once an antiques shop and, these days, is still filled with fetching vintage furniture within its comfortable yet elegant accommodation with all the modern facilities you can think of. Set between the Rambla and Costa de Sa Pols –which used to be the antique's dealer street, it is perfectly located just a stone's throw away from all the action and even has convenient parking spaces for guests.
Finally, Palau Sa Font is a sleek, hip, small hotel near the marina. This 16th-century palace has been renovated with a contemporary style, using designer furniture and modern artwork, and complete with a plunge pool.
