We stayed in the Mallorca room. The room is located on the corner of the building with a nice terrace. Th ceilings have to be over 20 feet high, with matching doors.
Good: Comfortable soft bed. Large room. Clean, despite the paint. Nice shower. Central location. Breakfast on the terrace was nice and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
Not So Good: Noise. The coffee station is next to the room. The breakfast area is at the end of the hall. The other guests can be heard stomping around, talking, and banging doors. The front entry door sounds like a gunshot every time a guest enters or leaves without controlling the close. I am a light sleeper, so the noise might not bother other people.
Comments: The entrance is one level above the ground floor, with an elevator starting after 14 steps up. The security entrance has a raised threshold, similar to a doorway in a ship. These could make entry difficult for people in wheel chairs.
Strange: paint in bathroom is yellow, with black "highlights". I'm not sure what they were going for, but they got the "I just brushed up against the walls and floor after working on my car" look. Note that the walls are actually clean, they were just cleverly concealed to look dirty.
I would not recommend this B&B to light sleepers. If you can sleep through anything, this is a really nice place.
