We have had a very comfortable stay at the Can Cera hotel for one week. The hotel ambiance is an interesting and tasteful mix between modern and antique, the staff is welcoming and friendly. Cars can be rented at the reception desk, even with option to return at the airport VIP parking.
We stayed at the Can Cera suite. It is indeed very spaceous and kept in the same mix between old (the living and bedrooms) and modern (the bathroom). The bathroom is nicely made with a separate toilet compartment and a compartment with bathtub and an open shower. In between the two small compartments is a large sink.
However, despite its size, the room does not offer any window with a view. The bathroom is completely windowless. The bedroom window blinds are kept shut by the staff, as the view would lead on a (not very good-looking) inner yard. The living room has a large French window leading to the terrasse, which is however surrounded by walls and plants. The most disturbing thing is the elevator which is situated right next to the bed. It must be similar to live near a tram or a train line, you sort of get used to it, but you would still prefer to get rid of it.
The breakfast buffet is good and consists of a variety of bread, cheese, meat, cereals and fruit. Eggs can be ordered from the kitchen, but they are not included in the room breakfast (which you learn only at the end of the stay).
Despite the small disadvantages, we enjoyed our stay very much and we can highly recommend the Can Cera hotel including the still very cosy Can Cera suite.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- At over 700 years old, Can Cera has one of the longest histories in Palma. The building dates back to before 1232 when Jaume I conquered the island with Catalan and Aragonese troops. Located inside the ancient city walls close to the Cathedral, Can Cera is in the very heart of the Old City, between the Plaza de Santa Eulalia and the Plaza de San Francisco. Over the years, Can Cera’s many owners have made alterations to the original building. The most important of these were done in the 17th Century, when –as in many of the surrounding houses– Italian Renaissance architects inspired the creation of the celebrated patios, giving the houses their singularly attractive, yet austere, character. Inside, the house is significant and rich with well-proportioned rooms, high ceilings of sculptured plasterwork, balconies and above all, palatial adornments. Today, Can Cera, has been thoroughly renovated and equipped as a first class Hotel. The traditional Majorcan patio, with its majestic arches, exuberant Kentia and other lush plants, leads to the Reception area and the Can Cera Restaurant. A marble stairway leads up to a surprising space: a comfortable and welcoming Home with its original layout intact. Period furniture and contemporary paintings abound. ... more less
