There’s no spa at the hotel, but owners Pete and Martin can arrange an in-room massage with a local therapist. It's worth noting that the stairs to the second floor are quite steep – guests with reduced mobility will be better off booking one of the first-floor rooms.
The hotel will be closed from 19 November 2018 to 1 March 2019.

Our favourite rooms
There are no dud rooms here – they all have tall, wooden-shuttered windows, individual artwork and either a high or wood-beamed ceiling. Room One, on the first floor, is particularly alluring thanks to its high, painted ceiling, original tiled floors and grand bathroom with an oval soaking tub. Up on the second floor, Room Four has mountain views, a metal four-poster bed and an open-plan bathroom with a deep soaking tub and a beautiful marble sink.
The saltwater pool is in the terraced garden, surrounded by potted greenery and sunloungers with parasols. Trees from the neighboring gardens loom over the trellis fence, moss-green mountains are within sight and the air is perfumed by the fragrant Mediterranean garden off to the side.
If you’re bringing an analog camera, don’t forget black-and-white film: it’ll capture Sóller’s wood-panelled trams at their historic best.
The historic layout and lack of adapted rooms make the hotel unsuitable for wheelchairs.
The hotel’s intimate size makes it better suited to adults, but children over 14 are welcome too.
