“Very good value, clean and tidy”
This hotel is ideal for those looking for a cheap hotel that is clean and well maintained.
We had a superior room which was a little more expensive, but it did provide beautiful sea and pool views, had a jacuzzi, shower and hair dryer, a nice small balcony for two and was spotlessly clean. The maid cleaned our room daily and provided fresh towels. Free wifi was included with this room and worked well throughout the hotel.
Breakfast was very much as you would expect in a hotel of this nature. Buffet style with morning cold meats, salad, pastries, eggs, bacon, beans, tea, coffee, fruit juices,cereals and yoghurts. There is something there for everyone's tastes.
The hotel bar is nice with friendly staff and brilliant views.
It is a good 30/40 minute walk to the cathedral area of town where a maze a small streets with a variety of restaurants, bars and shops can be found. There is a vast range of shops from the small Spanish stores to the top end retailers such as Louis Vuitton. Tapas bars are all over town, as are fresh seafood restaurants and restaurants serving European and local cuisine.
Along the seafront there are a number of bars and nightclubs and if it's somewhere to watch British football you're after then The Shamrock Bar on the seafront shows all the matches. There are only a handful of bars in Palma that show UK football which was surprising. (Sindi's near the Tryp Bosque Hotel or Mcgowans Bar near the cathedral.)
The only drawback is the location, in that, it is at the top of a very large number of steps from the seafront at Porto Pi. This should only be a concern for those that are not relatively fit or are not willing to use public transport. ( the number 46 bus stops outside the hotel and will take you in or bring you back from Palma town). A taxi rank is situated opposite the hotel and costs €8 into the centre of town.The location does provide magnificent views across the harbour, where cruise ships dock daily.
All in all the hotel provides good value accommodation with stunning views.
