Interesting designer/ boutique hotel close to Palma city centre. Liked some of the design (white pueblo style and quirky at times) but as other commentators have said design sometimes gets the better of practicality. We stayed in a standard double on the 2nd floor. Some design issues included having the bed below the window (with a window that had shutters attached and opened in the way meant that when the window was open you could not sit up in bed, the shutters swung open when you opened the window too), also the positioning of the sink and tap meant that there was always water around the sink area, while the wardrobe curtain trailing on the floor meant that it caught in the bathroom door.
Our room looked as though it had had a recent coat of white paint and in general the room was in a good state of maintenance. The bed was very comfortable but the pillows were not, The towels were hard and small (no big fluffy bath towels in this hotel). The shampoos and shower gel were not replenished at all in our 4 day stay.
Breakfast was very good (lots of choice), and reception staff were friendly and helpful.
There was a relaxed atmosphere in the hotel and it was quiet at night. We liked the roof terrace.
Location of the hotel was good a circa ten minute walk to the top of the Ramblas (very much a local area). Airport bus stopped a c 5 minute walk a way at Instituts (Avenue de Portugal)/ The University.
Overall stay was GVFM but there needs to be some more active management of the service levels.
