At first sight the exterior of Cas Ferrer Nou Hotelet is attractive. Step inside though, and it is so much more. You find a tiny exclusive hotel that is a prime example of avant gard design. It is, quite simply, stunning.
Situated in the heart of the old town of Alcudia, Nou Hotelet was once the local blacksmiths. Today it provides its small number of lucky guests (only six rooms, remember) with a haven of comfort in a cosmopolitan atmosphere that will entrance you with the Mediterranean spirit of life.
Throughout the house there is a sense of calm and well-being. The precise sense of design harmoniously blends the natural stone walls with simple modern shapes and colours. Each of the guest rooms is inspired by one of the ancient centres of the Mediterranean, including Pollentia the Roman city whose remains can be seen nearby. One of the rooms is accessible for a disabled person.
Alcudia is a fabulous centre for a holiday in Mallorca, with easy access to miles of sandy beaches, rocky calas and cool mountains. There is an abundance of bars and restaurants nearby if you want them, yet you can easily retreat into your own world of peace and serenity. This can be further augmented by the massages and treatments available in the Auca Health Spa next to the hotel.
L'Alguer. Ground floor room with a door opening directly onto the patio. Hydro-massage bath.
Pollentia. First floor room close to the terrace, designed in soft tones of yellow and white with exposed stone of the original walls.
Istanbul. First floor room with original floor tiles and furnishings reminiscent of the East.

"I have just spent an unforgettable weekend in the Hotel Cas Ferrer Nou in Alcudia. It's a place with a very special atmosphere, cutting-edge design, and best of all, unbeatable service and attention. Congratulations."
"Delivers the "wow" factor when you walk into the old building to discover a designer boutique style interior. We had silk petals scattered on our mosquito-netted bed, which led out onto a terrace - with steps heading up to the roof-top terrace. Well appointed and fitted out."
