Brondo Architect Hotel, Palma, Mallorca
This hotel is located right in the centre of Palma de Mallorca, close to a very popular shopping street and 5 minute walk from the Cathedral and beach.
The hotel is classified as unique stay because of their Mallorcan-style architecture with a modern and refined bohemian design. It is a building of history in Brondo Street and the rooms are all different, all designed and characterized with a unique style and personality.
We booked a Premium Double Room with a Terrace and we were so impressed. We loved the look of the terrace and having a space outside the room to relax and not spend all our time in the room. When looking at a lot of hotel rooms, the sizes are pretty small, unless you book the Suit or Penthouse of course. The hotel is in the middle of town, so you do not have any sea or mountain views, but having a space outside the room makes a huge difference and will always be a win.
The hotel offers 24 hour reception, which is pretty amazing knowing you can contact someone any time for help, questions or to top up your mini bar. They have a business centre, chill out terrace, gym, reading area and restaurant. They even have laundry services and hairdressers. We visited during the Covid-19 outbreak and some of these areas were not open to public.
They still offered an a-la-carte breakfast and no buffet areas. For €10 you could choose between three different styles of breakfast accompanied with freshly squeezed "jugo/sumo de naranja y café con leche", that is orange juice and coffee with milk. Also your classic croissant or fresh breads with butter and spreads.
Staff was super friendly, the girl at reception even offered to carry our suitcases which was pretty heavy and would have been a flight of stairs for her. The hotel has a lift, but some compartments have to be reached by stairs as they do not want to compromise the history of the building too much.
Our room was very clean, neat bathroom, super soft bed and of course (I can not say this enough) our terrace was just the cherry on the cake. We had a lovely stay and would definitely go back.
