Just a few blocks from Mallorca‘s seaside, the Santa Catalina neighbourhood in Palma was once a sailor’s secret. Today, anchored by a local bustling market, it has become a hipster destination, with sun-drenched cafes and funky boutiques opening every season. Sea breezes blow in from the Mediterranean just a stone’s throw away.
A cosmopolitan luxury hotel pulsing with Palma’s exciting nightlife, Hostal de Cuba has transformed alongside the neighbourhood from a 20th-century maritime hostel to a modern four-star hotel with all the amenities. The historic sites and museums of Palma, as well as luxury shopping on the Paseo Borne, are within walking distance. After a morning spent exploring Palma, you can enjoy tapas at lunchtime in the market, then return to your hotel for a siesta. An evening walk or morning run along the famous boardwalk, the Paseo Maritimo, is not to be missed.
Relax & enjoy
Hostal de Cuba has a sunny casual dining restaurant with tables spilling out onto the sidewalk serving three meals, and coffee or cocktails are available throughout the day. For early birds, enjoy a quiet morning buffet breakfast soaking up the sunshine on the roof terrace. The Sky bar has one of the best views for sipping a custom cocktail while watching the sunset over the sparkling Mediterranean, before heading down to the Hostal de Cuba Club where a live DJ spins for an international crowd. The hotel is casual, but they offer every concierge service so ask for restaurant suggestions and itinerary bookings, the friendly staff are happy to help.
The compact modern rooms are equipped with luxury hotel amenities; hairdryer, satellite TV, minibar, robe, air conditioning, a safe and wifi. Large french windows look over the busy streets and cafes of Santa Catalina, and a swath of green park. Rooms on the upper floors have vistas of La Seu Cathedral and the tiled rooftops of the historic center of Palma.
Eat & drink
The casual Hostal de Cuba restaurant is cheerful and comfortable, with great service. Throughout the day they serve a menu of traditional and interesting tapas and Spanish comfort food. An a la carte breakfast is available in the restaurant serving delicious eggs and coffee, or a buffet breakfast is served on the roof terrace. For lunch, they have a reasonably priced neighbourhood favourite-the set menu lunch.
Close to the hotel
Head out to the sandy beaches of Platja de Palma for a quick dip in the Mediterranean. A wander up through the narrow streets of the “Old Town” brings you to the romantic neighbourhood of La Lonja buzzing with charming tapas bars. Nightlife in Palma begins late, so book an inspiring meal at one of Mallorca’s Michelin star restaurants, before heading out for the night.
