Hotel Dalt Murada Press Reviews Lonely Planet "This intimate aristocratic manor-house-turned-hotel dates to 1500 and is filled with art and antique furniture that evokes those days gone by. Museum-worthy paintings, tapestries, chandeliers and canopied beds decorate the rooms, whose ceilings are held up by timber beams. Modern concessions include womb-like jacuzzis and an elevator.
Gesturing toward the portrait of a black-clad, stern-faced woman casting a level gaze over a sprawling double room, owner Ferran Sancho said 'this is the kind of person who lived here centuries ago, and the room itself [with lofty ceilings and antique wooden furniture] is similar to what we would see if we went back 200 years'. This conscious link with the past is evident throughout this impeccably restored house. Ancient maps of Spain adorn the hallways, and rooms are named after illustrious Mallorquins. While 21st century demands are well attended to, the allure of old-world Mallorca is what makes this small family-run hotel such a treat. There are only five double rooms and five suites, each different. Try to nab the penthouse suite, which has a Jacuzzi, a large terrace, and views of the cathedral."
Conde Nast Traveller (UK) "Palma's smartest new arrival is this family-owned townhouse adorned with tapestries, cherubim and chandeliers. Situated in a narrow street in the Gothic part of the Old Town, handy for the Arab baths, musuem and main churches. As in most city-centre hotels, there is no restaurant and breakfast is served in the courtyard garden under a lemon tree."
The Guardian, October 2007 "Owned by the Moragues family and nestled discreetly into the old town, this 16th-Century mansion was renovated in 2001, and lies in the shadow of the catherdral. Luxurious touches like hot tubs aren't in short supply but they don't setract from the old-time vibe, established by original features galore, and a palm-fringed courtyard."
Conde Nast Traveler (US), July 2006 "Spend a night in Palma at the elegant eight-room Dalt Murada, a Renaissance hotel with antiques and more recent art." Conde Nast Traveller (UK), November 2002 "The Moragues family spent six years on the conversion, and it shows: this is Palma's smartest new arrival... adorned with tapestries, cherubim, chandeliers - imagine staying in the Wallace Collection... X Factor: lying in the Jacuzzi with Palma's gargantuan Gothic cathedral framed in the penthouse suite window..."
