Style: Modern design
One of Palma de Mallorca’s most stylish hotels brings to this Spanish Gothic town an infusion of bright Scandinavian modernism. This Swedish-owned boutique spans the centuries, a sixteenth-century mansion and a Sixties apartment block joined together, the interiors renovated and redecorated in an utterly contemporary twenty-first-century style, leaving in place the beamed ceilings and central courtyard of the original house.
By now we’ve seen enough all-white interiors that we’re ready with accusations of cliché, of failure of imagination; but what becomes cliché is that which reliably works, and a familiar idea executed well need pay no mind to questions of originality. Here you’ll find those familiar white walls, sleek surfaces and hardwood floors, livened by small outbreaks of bold color or printed upholstery and anchored by semi-abstract photographs and contemporary paintings. Monochrome still works when it’s not a cop-out or a veneer, as these rooms amply demonstrate.
The centerpiece of this hotel, though, is the rooftop terrace, complete with plunge pool, sauna and most importantly ice-cold cocktails. The views from up here are worth the price of admission, encompassing the mountains, city and sea. Down in the courtyard are the restaurant and lounge, worth a night’s attention, while the surrounding neighborhood is home to much of Palma’s best dining and nightlife.

This hotel is just so charming. Whether you want a weekend with your friends or a romantic get away Hotel tres gives you both. I have visited the hotel a number of times now and every time I leave, I try to plan another return. The rooms are spacious and the style of the rooms very chic. The hotel stafff are helpful and cheerful. The location is the best you can get, tight on the old town and 5 mins from Palma Catherdral. You will find a great selection of restaurants on your door step as well as the shops just round the corner. If it the marina you are after then you only have to walk 10mins and you are there. If you are looking for a special hotel for a break in Palma, then don't hesitate to book this hotel. You will want to go back immediately.
