One thing to bear in mind if you choose to stay in Alcudia old town is that there are a number of churches within the town’s walls whose bells chime as the hours pass through the night and some of the hotels are within a close proximity of these churches. A few guests have commented in the past that the sounds keep them awake whilst others find the chimes comforting or don’t hear them at all.
This beautiful, elegant, 4 star boutique hotel located in the centre of Alcúdia Old Town is a converted 15th century typical Mallorcan manor house complete with Gothic features sympathetically blended with a modern style.
The eight air conditioned bedrooms are unique and individually styled.
The lounge and spa area create a stunning area and two of the guestrooms are located in the tower of the old building complete with their own private access.
