This is a brand new boutique hotel slap bang in the middle of town on Placa de Cort. Painted red you cant miss it. Outside is a large and VERY old olive tree. The hotel has a cafe bar called The Island which serves delicious food and drink. crystal bread, sirloin, chips, steak Tartar, and mini burgers (sliders) topped with Foire gras among other dishes all heavenly. Good service and lots of waiters ensure that this is prompt also. It is busy which is always a good sign.
Inside the bar area is dark and cool. Whilst we did not stay at the hotel it looks excellent and I intend to stay here when we return to the Majorca

Room Tip: We ate at The Island bar connected to the hotel.

Dear Nick W, thank you so much for your nice comments on your experience on the terrace of our restaurant! It is nice to see that you were happy with the food as well as the service and the attention of the staff. Your comment shows that there might be confusion with the name as neither the bar nor the restaurant have a separate name and it is all called "Hotel Cort - The Island" but maybe you gave us an idea here and we should consider it. Thank you! I hope to have the pleasure of getting to know you personally when you stay here during your next visit to Mallorca which we would be delighted about! Have a great time until then!

What a most welcome addition to Placa Cort! - in recent times we've suffered everything from a Dunkin' Donuts to (nearly) a Burger King, right outside the lovely Town Hall building, next to the old olive tree. So it's mostly a real treat to see the former Banco Sabadell building transformed. A couple of nit-picks though, Barbara W: why is it that, particularly in Mallorca, it seems perfectly acceptable to spoil the excellent work of renowned architects like Vicente Alcover Ripoll and Luis Moranta Jaume, and Interior Designers like Lázaro Rosa-Violán, by allowing huge swathes of electric cables to dangle across the beautifully restored frontage of the hotel? - actually, Banco de Credito Popular next door is an even bigger offender, as the naked cables hang right across the front of their signage, largely obstructing one's view of the costly glass logo above the windows. At least your contractors have made an attempt at covering some of the Hotel's cables behind a wooden soffit above the main entrance doors, and painting the biggest 'snake' the same colour as the wall behind it, but why oh why can't these cables be properly incorporated into the fabric of the building during the redevelopment? - it almost seems like an insult to the talents of the design team.

More about the hotel though: what about menus on the outside tables Barbara? - I know there are menus at the waiter station, so these could easily be placed on the tables themselves - otherwise, there isn't any indication to passing punters as to what fare is on offer. And what about nicking some of the breakfast trade from Cappuccino down the street, by offering Full English rather than just 'continental' breakfast items on the menu? - come to think of it, the only current signage of any kind is the tasteful tile mosaic floor feature at the main entrance. Not even a 'menu del dia' blackboard!

Seriously though, it's about time the likes of Can Cera and the newer Hotel Calatrava had some credible opposition - it should make them all pull their socks up a bit!!

Dear "Bosedealer", many thanks for your thorough and detailed comments! How nice to hear that you perceive the hotel as a welcome addition to Plaça de Cort which has always been our vision. We completely share your opinion on the outside cabling on the façade and should it have been in our hands we would have made it differently together with the design and construction team but the way things go in Spain major forces sometimes oblige you to go for provisional solutions... Thank you on the comments on the use of our menus! Since we do opt for a personal service we offer the menus to our guests once seated. We will definitely take on-board your suggestion for the extension of our breakfast menu and you shall soon find the menus and drink list displayed as well. Many thanks again and see you hopefully soon again!

This new hotel only opened in July so all the rooms are not fully available but our suite 32 was and how totally delighted we were with it From the taxi dropping us off from the airport (you will need the exact address as even the local taxis do not know it is there YET) we were enchanted by the whole area and the intimate ambiance of the hotel.From being greeted by Tony at reception to the fantastic staff who are some of the best we have known from staying in Palma over the last 17 years .The room was divine and we could fault nothing even though the mini bar had developed a fault we were assured by Tony just to ring down and our every wish would be granted and it was !!!. I have to mention the array of pillows and quality of them ,we were very impressed and it does take quite something for the pillows in a hotel to get a special mention.So take our advice and get booking just a note there is only a plunge pool and some beds on the roof terrace but the beach is a short walk or a 5 euro taxi ride and it was not a hassle at all(rather do without the pool and stay here).
Thank you to all the staff breakfast and dinner and even if you do not stay book a table for dinner as again some of the best we have had in Palma.

Room Tip: Room 32 is really good and double balcony doors overlooking the square.

Dear "Mikejames 296",
thank you very much indeed for sharing your positive feedback and for taking the time to post your experience here. I am delighted to hear that you liked the Suite 32 and its equipment that much and enjoyed the room. Thank you moreover for mentioning Toni and the staff who are all giving their best since the day the hotel opened its doors (and before) to ensure that the guets feel well looked after and it is wonderful for us to see the fruit of their hard work by tokens of recognition as yours. We further appreciate the advise for fellow travellers which helps us to inform hopefully future guests about what to bear in mind before their stay or booking. Especially in the first weeks after the opening this is a valuable support for us - many thanks! We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back to Hotel Cort soon and the whole team is looking forward to seeing you again!

We stayed for a week to celebrate our anniversary and having booked at the last minute during peak season without much research we were overwhelmed by how luxurious and comfortable this hotel was, without any pretence, and its location! The staff are very friendly, concierge incredibly knowledgeable about the restaurants, beach clubs, activities in Palma and further afield. Breakfast is also good value with decent coffee and lovely freshly squeezed OJ.

As it had just opened there were a few kinks eg: Jacuzzi or mini bar not plugged in yet, but the staff made the drinks complimentary and brought them up to our room upon request round the clock!

Also so thoughtful were they that once they heard of my love for pink bubbly they brought a bottle up to our room complimentary on our anniversary.

Thank you Marcos and Tony for making our stay so memorable.
Cannot wait to return :)

Palma, my favourite city in the Mediterranean is looking good these days despite the economic situation in Spain. Just opened is the new small, chic, Hotel Cort right bang in the centre on Placa Court next to the Town Hall and the city's famous ancient olive tree and the Cathedral. A short walk takes you to all the best shopping, restaurants and architecture.The outside woodwork is pinted red so you can't miss it! The rooms are contemporary but not too modern as to make them stark. These rooms are clean, fresh design with Majorcan fabrics. mountains of pillows and Frette linen throughout. The food is excellent on the ground floor in the brasserie where you can eat in air conditioned comfort or out on the Placa to soak up the local atmosphere. The Bar is currently the place to be and be seen.

Room Tip: 33 has good views over the Placa

Although we did not stay at the hotel, we enjoyed lunch here twice. Great location under a gorgeous olive tree. Festive and fun people watching. Very attentive staff. Near lots of shopping and sites. Highly recommended for an afternoon drink or espresso.
