The property has been designed by celebrated Parisian interior designer Jacques Grange, considered one of the best interior designers and decorators in the world, and famed for creating properties including the beautiful Palazzo Margarita in Southern Italy and The Mark Hotel in New York.
In true Grange style, HOTEL MAMÁ will be a statement of luxury, welcoming guests with the very best in five-star elegant service.

All of the furniture in HOTEL MAMÁ has been created or adapted by Jacques Grange for the project and has been made-to-measure between France, Italy and New York.
The 19th century building will have 32 exclusive rooms, with five bespoke styles including Marella, Celadon, Garden, Oriental and Roman. There will be eight suites, all of which face the famous Plaza De Cort. A further eight deluxe rooms, eight superior rooms and eight standard rooms will also boast views of the historical quarter of the city.
An extensive art collection will be featured around the hotel, including works from Sean Scully, Wendy Artin, Chales Maze, David Rochline, Marie Banier and Eva Jospin, all personal favourites of Grupo Cappuccino owner, Juan Picornell.
Spanning four floors, the hotel includes a sumptuous spa within a 19th century building, private cinema Cappucine, rooftop pool, gymnasium and sunny central patio in the heart of Palma. It will also house a stunning new Café Mamá, offering classic brunch dishes and traditional cocktails. The hotel’s restaurant, inu japanese, will serve favourite dishes including Halibut with Saikyo Miso, and popular cocktails such as Kumquat Caipirinha. The hotel’s spa is scheduled to open later in 2018.

About Juan Picornell
Juan Picornell Rowe was born in the Mallorcan village of Palmanova, in 1971.
Picornell had a vision for his first café at a young age, and knew exactly who he wanted to target and how. He dreamt of creating a magical and cosy home from home, inspired by New York’s classic bars and innovative hospitality, decoration and service.
In 1993 Cappuccino was born, and with it, it’s magic. A collage of countless and careful details related to decoration, location, music, service, product.
He handpicks every Cappuccino Café location carefully, opening only in special and unique destinations. Once chosen, he envisages a particular and special decoration for each one making no Café the same.
A perfect example of this is the old palace located at the number 53 of the central street San Miguel in Palma, which has become the flagship Cappuccino. This is where Juan is based, in a spacious and carefully decorated setting surrounded by contemporary art, one of his great passions which can be seen throughout his Cafes and the new hotel. From this location, the Cappuccino team have been able to create a new business model and concept that represents Mediterranean Mallorcan style.
Another of his great passions is music, as displayed in the carefully curated selection of music that is played across all the Cappuccino Cafes – he believes it to be the soundtrack of the Cappuccino’s magic. The bespoke selection of music is reflected in a wonderful collection of albums, and 2017 will see the tenth edition.
Picornell has admired and followed the work of Jacques Grange for some time as his favourite designer. HOTEL MAMÁ gave him perfect opportunity to collaborate with him on his first hotel venture, in the building he says he had dreamed of for years.
