Hotel Can Cera was a wholly new hotel when it opened in Palma in 2011. “New” is not the full story though because this is a building with over 700 years of history. It has been changed, added to, reformed and redecorated over the centuries until its most recent conversion into a luxury hotel. This time the works have concentrated on blending the best features of those centuries of change with the needs of modern travellers, to create a hotel of distinction.
Can Cera is located within the walls of the old city of Palma, close to the cathedral, where history abounds but modern traffic is sparse. There are twelve guest rooms, each one individually decorated in a consistent style with antique furniture, contemporary paintings and a warmth of character that charms the visitor. Modern comforts can be taken for granted and there is even a complimentary minibar.
Beyond one’s room the hotel offers so much space and facilities for its guests. The Red Salon has comfortable chairs and sofas and antique furnishings ideal for relaxing before or after dinner. The Golden Salon provides more of the same, along with some impressive bookcases. The Library is a light, bright room perfect for reading, naturally. Or for more modern entertainment there is the TV lounge on the top floor, with large windows overlooking the main patio.
Guests seeking an outdoor space will find the terrace at the top of the hotel, with views over the roof tops of the old town. Others will appreciate the spa with sauna, Turkish bath, Jacuzzi, yoga, massage, and more besides.
We look forward to Can Cera becoming an important addition to Little Hotels’ choice of luxurious accommodation in Palma.
Palma is a very special city: compact, yet filled with history and style. It's the place where the King of Spain comes sailing. Can Cera builds on all the qualities of Palma to make a hotel that is quite unforgettable.

Reviews from Little Hotels Travellers:
|Lovely hotel- we are pleased that we are returning for another night on Friday.|

Here's What Some People Have Written On Other Review Sites or in the Guestbook:
|We had a wonderful time here. The room was beautiful and airy. The hotel was spotless and the food sublime. Best of all the staff were the most kind and helpful we have found and nothing was too much trouble. A real pleasure.|
|If you are looking for an authentic and beautiful old property supported by a wonderful and thoughtful team, this hotel will not disappoint.|
|The best hotel stay you could imagine. Some friends recommended this hotel and we wanted to try it. The position is marvellous, you couldn't be more central. The only downside is that the hotel doesn't have parking, but they recommended a public car park just five minutes away, so fine.|
