Located on the Plaza de Sant Francesc, beside the 13th-century church and cloister of the same name, Sant Francesc Hotel Singular is an elegant boutique hotel in the heart of Palma de Mallorca’s historic centre. The hotel is a renovated neoclassical mansion dating back to 1860, and the décor retains many of the original features such as exposed beams, stone floors and frescoes.
Despite being a listed building, the hotel has all of the facilities one would expect from a modern boutique. There is a seriously chic rooftop terrace, which in the summer months becomes a sushi bar, as well as a wellness centre for your pampering needs. The décor has been updated as well: complimenting the period pieces is a wide collection of contemporary art, with works by artists Guillem Nadal, Dominica Sánchez and Burno Olle, amongst others.
The hotel’s restaurant, Quadrat, has a relaxed yet elegant atmosphere. Located in the former stables, Quadrat serves an exciting blend of Asian-inspired cuisine with a Mediterranean twist. In warm weather, there is a verdant garden for dining alfresco. During the summer months, the rooftop terrace is host to a fantastic Sushi Bar. The Lobby Bar is open throughout the year, and serves a wide range of drinks, as well as light tapas, perfect for nibbling on while sipping one of Sant Francesc Hotel’s exclusive cocktails.
Hotel rooms are styled in a calming muted palette, and feature designer pieces by renowned names such as Philippe Starck. Many rooms have views of the square or the hotel’s private courtyard, and some of the pricier rooms have their own balconies. Bathrooms are elegant, with walk-in showers in most, and baths in some of the more exclusive rooms.
Sun-seekers will want to head up to the chic rooftop terrace, where you can bask in the Mallorcan rays from one of the loungers, or take a refreshing splash in the large pool. The views of historic Palma and Sant Francesc Basilica from the rooftop terrace are simply stunning, and it is the perfect place for a romantic sunset. If you want to pamper yourself, the Sant Francesc Hotel Singular has a wellbeing space offering a range of massages and beauty treatments.
The hotel is located right in the heart of historic Palma, beside the historic 13th-century Sant Francesc Church, and it’s well worth spending a day meandering through the streets of the old town, exploring the fascinating medieval and Arabic buildings that survive as testaments to Palma’s rich history.
