    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Born Palma

    Great location, great value


    We stayed in a family room at the Hotel Born over Easter and were very pleased with the room and the standard of the hotel in general. The location of the hotel is excellent, being both quiet and central. Our room was spacious and well heated with nice views over the courtyard.

    Breakfast was plentiful and the staff were efficient an helpful. We would happily stay at this hotel again - it is good value and can be strongly recommended.

    Superb Value, Superb Location


    Visited in February 2004. Brilliant location for exploring all the sights of Palma. Located up a quiet alley in the old town adjacent to plenty of cafes, shops and bars. Also easy walking distance from all the main sights.

    The hotel itself provided typical Majorcan acommodation in a

    beautifully renovated hotel. The rooms were attractive and clean with

    views over the lovely interior courtyard ( request these rooms if you

    can). This hotel is only 2 star but was better than many higher rated

    hotels we have stayed in. The carpets were a little threadbare on the

    stairs and the breakfast was o.k ( basic pastries, tea, coffee, cereal,

    ham, cheese and some fruit ) but the hotel's location and the character

    of the interior really make up for lack of choice. We didn't find the

    hotel noisy like other reviews however we visited in low season. Hope

    to return soon !!

    Loads of character


    We enjoyed an excellent stay at the Hotel Born. If you want a tourist hotel with pool,fancy bars etc ....and inevitably tourist then don't choose the Born - but if you want to stay in a 16th century surroundings right in the middle of the town then this is the place.

    Helpful staff,acceptable breakfast - nothing really fancy in the rooms but loads of character. One thing to be careful of in the winter is that it's not too well heated but still preferable to the 4 star sea front hotels. In the summer there's a beautiful central courtyard to take breakfast or drinks in. Book early.

    Noisy, cold, dark


    I stayed at the Born in november 2003, and I really wanted to enjoy my stay, and when i read all the exelent review about the Born I couldnt resit. When we arrived I was impressed with its location that can not be faulted. But! the room was very cold with no heating i was that cold I had to have a bath to warm up then get into bed, the room was very dark, even though I had asked for a room with a balcony our room hardly had a window it was that high my husband who is 5 foot 9 could not see out of it and the worse thing of all every night we had to bang on the wall, and not the same wall , the walls were so thin we even here people giong to the toilet and here every word they said.Sorry if this is a bit long winded but I think when you take the recomendation of several guide books you should be able to feel confident in having a good stay

    Great location, full of character


    This was a lovely hotel and not bare or sparsely furnished as some reviews have suggested. Fantastic sweeping staircase, impressive outdoor seating and antiques everywhere. 53 a night for a double and right in the centre of Palma. The place had loads of character and I would thoroughly recommend it. Only minor -ve was that some staff could be friendlier and more welcoming than others.

    Charming and well positioned!


    November 24th, 2004. Having just returned from Palma we had to write to say if you want to see the City and shop don't stay in the Maritime area, stay at Hotel Born. The location makes up for any lack of mini bar , pool or sea view. This is an old Mallorcan palace which has maintained all its charm, oozes character and is such a great location you'll kick yourself if you don't choose it. We loved the sweeping staircase, the courtyard views and the quietness - no muzak here! If you don't mind being without satellite TV, a spa and indifferent staff that most chains offer - then Hotel Born is for you. We were so happy with our choice for our City Break in November.

    Great location, Lovely Character, Fantastic Value


    We visited the Hotel in 1999 and had a couple of great nights exploring the charms of Palma. The hotel itself is central to all the main Palma highlights. It provides lovely 16 century character with clean basic accommodation at a very reasonable price.One tip if you feel romatic beware! Many of the rooms open up onto a central coutyard and the noise from the bedrooms can be heard by all. We had an enjoyable breakfast playing guess the screamers amongst the 10 or so couples dining! Back with two nippers this year a different type of screaming may distract.

    ... about ambition or dreams or frustrated dreams....slowly slowly. ....not clawing or holding on too tight. It really takes the pressure off, all things will happen, in their own sweet time! And our days here are long...we've worked mornings, and eaten late, cooking on and huddled close to the fire, off to bed at midnight. No TV, not much radio and next to no internet! The day stretches on until it's suddenly ...

    We've just celebrated Easter, with a fast amount of food! Three things seem important here. Gigantic platters of lamb, thick walled pastries and family. I was lucky enough to be invited to join my friend Seb's family. He's the youngest of seven children most of whom were able to join us yesterday and we all squeezed around a big table for fried offal, mixed with artichokes, broad beans and red pepper. That was washed down with red wine. But brace ...

    ... orange juice (because we wanted to use their Wi-Fi).

    A few months ago, Jonathan and I went wine tasting in Napa and he surprised me by taking me to a Tuscan-esque castle in the middle of wine country. It was awesome, and I wanted to return the favor, so we decided to hike up to Bellver Castle, Palma's castillo. Google Maps told us it would be about a 40 minute walk, so we decided to go for it.

    Actually, this time, Google was pretty close to correct, and ...

    ... with lights and a Christmas tree and the cards that Mark brought out with him on display. The turkey was collected the following day and we were set for the annual binge!. Steve had bought a cleaver so that we could get the turkey into the small oven come what may!

    So that is all for now from us in Palma.

    We send you all our best wishes for a great Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.

    Lots of love

    I was six when I went there and I really liked it because of the animals. The only downside was that the dolphin arena had a lot of metal and the sun was burning and everything was super hot. It was made up like a tropical jungle and everywhere were things to discover.

    Now over 13 years later I'm pretty much against these parks because they're almost always cruel and I wouldn't go there ...
