The Can Cera is a beautiful little hotel. It is a converted residence and it feels like love (and professionalism) have been lavished on it. The rooms all vary and are very tastefully decorated. It is down a small alley that doesn't look particularly promising but from the moment you step into the courtyard it's a lovely oasis. Whoever designed the air conditioning system deserves a medal. It silently breathes cool air that feels as though it's been infused with fine mineral water or nice vodka, or perhaps champagne - who knows? But the effect is a lovely cool room with pleasantly hydrated nose and throat upon awakening. Could it stand up to the job in July or August? I couldn't say because I would never consider stepping foot on these shores in those months and will never need to know. But for the past two nights it has been a revelation. Sadly, a few irritations that must be mentioned. The bathroom in room 6 is very small for two and it's a chore to shower without flooding the room. The bathroom in room 1 is huge. Also, because of the central courtyard and general design it is noisy. I am a light sleeper and could put up with it for two nights on holiday but it could become tiresome. But the overall charm and loveliness outweighs these issues and I highly recommend it. The staff were all very pleasant and fit right in these lovely surroundings. I look forward to a return visit.
- 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
