Hotel Can Cera

The specs: The palacio you always wished your great-grandparents had had the good sense to purchase, set smack in the historic center of Palma de Mallorca.

The look: Upscale Mediterranean, with just enough English country house to suggest that its owners may have another home in the Cotswolds—this is the kind of genteel taste that can only be inherited.

The experience: Down a narrow street off Palma’s old Jewish quarter, Can Cera greets guests with one of the broad, leafy patios that distinguish Mallorcan architecture. A steep staircase leads first to a striking set of sitting rooms where contemporary paintings and ornate chandeliers adorn the bloodred walls, and cozy sofas and a large collection of art books promise lazy afternoons. The 12 cream-colored guest rooms have carved olivewood headboards and ocher floors; teal-blue coverlets are a reminder of the Mediterranean, which shimmers a few blocks away. The staff, eager to offer tours of the house and volunteer information about Mallorca, are similarly welcoming. The in-house Gastro Bar offers simple but well-prepared dishes that range from classic tapas to fusion sushi.
