      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Born Palma

      Great location, great value

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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!

      from

      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

      from

      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.

      ... a couple of hours wandering the streets. it is a very beautiful and clean city with lovely narrow lanes and nice shops. On our way back to the shuttle we stopped at a street side restaurant and enjoyed A glass of sangria while checking the wifi. The shops here suggest a well to do clientele and that is supported by the number and quality of the pleasure craft in the Marina. The Cathedral looked a magnificent site but unfortunately we did not have time to visit. ...

      ... Torrent de Pareis. This is unbelievably a dried up river bed and it cuts through the mountains out to sea. As such, the beach is pebbles of various sizes rather than sand, but the view from the beach to sea through two giant rocks is beautiful. The Mallorquin landscape, of white/grey rocks, interspersed with bright green trees and seas of turquoise and vibrant dark blue is ...

      ... The road down was incredibly steep and winding and we were all a little on edge throughout the descent... But James did very well indeed, and we made it down and back up again without any problems (just a few white knuckles and sharp gasps!). The port at the bottom was pretty, but we didn't stop long and headed back up to Deia. Another pretty hillside village, Deia is frequented by a few different celebrities when they want to escape... ...

      ... in the mountains. We drive to a local abbey, and hear a wonderful choir. We pass lots of cyclists. We can barely navigate the steep hills and tight switchbacks in our car; hats off to the cyclists. Lunch at a lovely town on the sea called Pollensa.
      Dinner at Can Furios that night is the same. Everyone barely nods and speaks to only their partner in hushed tones. It is eerie. Most of the clientele ...

      ... to cover off the day I will spend in Bangkok on the way back to Australia, though I'm not sure if I will have Internet access in Bangkok so it might not go up for a few more days. There is still a lot to keep the stress levels up: Volcanos in Iceland, terrorists in Norway, political unrest in Bangkok, and I have 3 separate flights to join the dots back to the safety and security of home. Fingers crossed everything works out OK for the final legs of the ...
