    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.

    ... 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 ...

    ... told, there's not a lot here and although the village was definitely very pretty, I think I missed what the fuss is about! With all of these places though, half of the lure must be the drive to get there, going across the mountains with amazing views of the countryside and the coast alike. After these few hours of driving, we thought we deserved a little downtime and headed down to Cala de Deia (the beach). This was a lovely small secluded beach ...

    Today was our last day in class with David, before Javier returns tomorrow. Andrea did indeed end up in my class and we were joined by four others to make a total of six - the perfect class size. It was a little strange without having Trisha in class, but also nice to have Andrea as a friendly face. After class, I joined James by the pool for lunch and then we jumped in the car for a mini road trip. We headed to Portals Vells, where there was a ...

    Aqualand

    A travel blog entry by gregglucking on Sep 14, 2014

    Today we rediscovered our inner children and headed to Aqualand - the waterpark in Arenal. John, Andrea, Selina and I were joined by Trisha and Will for a really fun afternoon. The park was pretty quiet as most of the tourists had gone home, and I think the longest we queued for any of the rides was 15 minutes - and you could tell by the way the place was set up that usually the queues are a lot longer! Some slides used rubber rings, others we could pair up ...

    ... 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 ...
