Mallorca’s Grupo Cappuccino has opened their first hotel, Hotel Mamá, in Central Palma’s beautiful Plaza de Cort.
Hotels in Palma are plentiful, particularly luxury boutique hotels, but in keeping with Cappuccino’s brand concept, the hotel offers a fashionable new voice, collaborating with French interior designer Jacques Grange (whose celebrity clients have included Karl Lagerfeld, Yves Saint Laurent, and The ROW).
The decorator customised every detail of the Hotel Mamá in his signature eclectic style – floral Parisian toile meets Moroccan black and white marble in Palma, Mallorca.
The concept of the boutique hotel was to mirror its surroundings: reflecting the Mediterranean spirit and Gothic history of the capital city of Mallorca. World-class shopping is a stone’s throw away on the Paseo del Borne, and the hotel is minutes from the famous landmarks of Palma and the Playa de Palma.
Behind La Seu cathedral in the heart of Palma’s Old Town, Hotel Mamá’s terrace spills out on the sunny cobblestones of Plaza de Cort. Entering the ground floor lobby of the hotel and you are in the cheerful bustling Cappuccino Grand Café with sunlight flooding through the floor to ceiling casement windows.
Relax & enjoy
The hotel has five categories of luxury accommodation, with a total of 32 guest rooms. For fitness enthusiasts there is a small gym equipped with the latest Technogym equipment and a personal trainer available. The Hotel Mamá spa offers beauty treatments, a steam bath, and a jacuzzi. The hotel’s rooftop terrace has a small pool and room service is available all day.
A Japanese restaurant, Tahini, and the signature Cappuccino Grand Café are on the ground floor: offering cuisine for every palate predilection. Cine Cappucine is the island’s only hotel cinema, with seating for 30. The owner of the hotel created the cinema’s repertoire with his friend, the American director Francis Ford Coppola. The American tradition of dinner and a movie date night is a draw for guests and locals.
Jacques Grange designed each room of Hotel Mamá individually. Suites are decoratively hand painted in feminine pastels of teracotta, petal pink and pale blue. Floors are laid with graphic customised hydraulic tiles and the decor is Grange’s own line of Neo-Victorian floral furnishings. Floris toiletries and plush towels are details in the en-suite Carrara marble bathrooms. Some rooms have small balconies looking over the square and the rooftops of Palma, with the turquoise Mediterranean Sea shimmering beyond.
Eat & drink
In the Cappuccino Grand Café, there is a full bistro-style menu with innovative cocktails and international fare. Tahini, Hotel Mamá’s Japanese restaurant, is overseen by a Japanese chef and has classic Japanese sushi, sashimi, and hand rolls on the menu. The terrace on Plaça de Cort is a great place to have a coffee and people watch during the day, and the rooftop bar is where you go for a cocktail in the evening to watch the sunset over the Mediterranean Sea.

Close to the hotel
The Miró Foundation is one of Palma’s sites not to be missed in the El Terreno barrio of Palma. Get lost in the picturesque Old Town behind the Hotel Mamá, where you will find charming tapas bars along the winding cobblestone streets. If you love a challenge, a morning run up to Castel Bellver, or a cycle to Portitxol along the sea is a refreshing way to start your day.
