          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.

          Bumming around Palma

          Spent a day wandering around Palma... The city is quite large, and so I stuck mostly to the old areas of 'tourist' interest. There are churches, a cathedral, plazas and museums all over the place, but being there on a Sunday meant that I was limited in what I could see and do. Many thinks remain lose forgave reduced hours on Sundays, something that seems to be less common in North America but still prevalent in many other places. Being that I prefer architecture over spending ...

          Can't ditch the last bike day!

          So there was an option to get in a last ride before heading out Saturday to Plama... I opted for the shorter (50km) ride as the other option was 95km! This shorter version was set to ensure that folks who had early afternoon flights would be able to make them... Or those who didn't feel like doing another full ride could also participate :) Now, being a shorter ride, I thought perhaps it might be a flatter ride... Not a chance! ...

          You know those days that you wake up and say 'seriously, who peed in my cornflakes' but you haven't even gotten to breakfast yet? Yep, that was today... Toted as one of the best rides on the island, the slated 85km costal route covers some beautiful landscapes and several challenging hills. Mallorca is a stunning island if you like picturesque villages, beautiful coastlines, acres of almond and citrus orchards... Not to mention the ...

          The Cake Route

          Aptly named, this mostly flat route has the bonus of stopping at a well-known restaurant for fantastic cakes at the midpoint. I'll be honest, while it was nice to be back on the bike again, visiting the shop and seeing how much pride the creator of these goodies had with her wares... And the joy in parsing them up for people to consume was a close second. Did I mention that at 95km in length, this ...

          ... complete with six-packs of boisterous middle-aged German men. The place was teeming with German tourists mostly in groups of six, (a few men were even decked out in lederhosen) - far more that we expected. I had always thought Mallorca was popular with Brits. We had a small room (with patio) on the ground floor of the family run Hotel Garau only 50m from the ...
