10 good charming hotels in Mallorca

10 good charming hotels in Mallorca

The best known tourist area of Mallorca is undoubtedly its coast: its beaches, its coves, its leisure and restaurant offer. But away from the crowds and the overcrowding of the large hotel complexes there is a whole world of small hotels located in historic buildings, in the countryside or in small villages, family-run and welcoming, and with a first-class personalised service: the charming hotels.

What do we call a “charming hotel”?

These are hotels that have something special that distinguishes them from the rest. They are usually located in unique buildings: old stately homes, palaces, even castles. Old convents or monasteries, or rural estates are also common.

Modernisation must have been carried out by harmoniously integrating the original architectural elements with modern materials and facilities. Because a charming hotel does not have to be an old-fashioned hotel, it also has to be a comfortable and convenient hotel.

Part of the charm is the close and personal service, which is achieved in hotels with only a few rooms. A hotel with 200 rooms can hardly have charm, overcrowding cannot have charm.

The environment is also fundamental. We can be in the best and most welcoming hotel, but if when we leave the hotel we find a dirty, neglected and crowded environment, the magic is broken.

Charm is not just one thing, it is a combination of factors, and that is why there can be many different types of hotels, each with its own charm.

Why stay in a charming hotel in Mallorca?

Charming hotels have the added bonus of being located in historic buildings and unique settings. Their small size allows a close and familiar treatment, making your stay even more pleasant. Being away from crowded places provides what many people are looking for on their holidays or getaways: peace and quiet, relaxation.

How much does a charming hotel in Mallorca cost?

Charm does not have to mean great luxury, but obviously these hotels will have an above-average level of service. Otherwise, they would not be charming hotels. Although it is possible to find very good deals, especially in low season, they are usually around €200-400 per night in three or four star establishments. Obviously, five-star hotels will be more expensive and can easily reach €600 or €700 per night.
