Concepció by Nobis
Situated in an enviable location where the Old Town meets Santa Catalina, Concepció by Nobis captures the spirit of Palma de Mallorca and is ideally positioned to take in some of the city’s most emblematic attractions. Originally built in 1576 and once a soap factory, the historical property now presents a warm and relaxed oasis for both travellers and locals, with 31 guestrooms and suites, an in-house restaurant and lounge, and spaces for meetings and events — all designed by award-winning Swedish firm Wingårdhs.
Steeped in cultural heritage and defined by modern amenities — including an outdoor pool and modern gym — Concepció by Nobis is a warm celebration of Palma’s past and present.
Steeped in history and reflective of the ongoing revival of both Palma’s Old Town and the Santa Catalina district, Concepció by Nobis anchors the revival of two of the city’s most historic quarters. Blending Mallorcan heritage with contemporary sophistication, the hotel is based in a 16thcentury building, which has been sensitively renovated to create a characterful property that is a compelling merger of Palma’s past and present.
Guided by co-lead architects Helena Toresson and Gert Wingårdh of Stockholm-based firm Wingårdhs, the design concept for Concepció by Nobis evolved from the property’s unique layout and original features, which together provided an inspiring canvas on which to build. Here, open and connected public areas have been paired with a small number of guestrooms to create an exceptional backdrop upon which modern accents, historical details and bespoke elements harmoniously coexist.
Blending locally crafted details with contemporary aesthetics, each of the rooms and suites at Concepció by Nobis presents a soothing retreat from the buzz of Palma. Across the guestrooms, custom-made accents, and furniture and textiles that reflect the spirit of both Mallorca and Nobis’ Scandinavian heritage are married with modern amenities in spaces designed by Stockholm-based firm Wingårdhs. With just a small number of rooms, the hotel promises intimacy and peace for overnight guests — a real treasure in this bustling heart of the city.
Concepció by Nobis is home to 31 rooms and suites across seven categories that range from the cosy Small Double to the one-of-a-kind Terrazza Room.
