Historical Traveler Reviews HM Jaime III Palma
Nice hotel in Great location
The hotel was very clean and modern and in a great section of town. We had a triple room and it was very large...even by US standards.
The staff was pleasant, but not overly helpful. If you asked a question, they would answer it, but not elaborate or make any suggestions.
The breakfast was very good for a continental breakfast.
Nice hip hotel with excellent breakfast
We stayed in the Jaime III for two nights and checked in in a room at the quiet back of the hotel (but no special views). The room was nicely decorated in a hip style and large, a pity the bathroom wasn't renovated (but it was functional and clean). The beds are terrific! We were suprised by the very good breakfast and service in the morning. Our compliments to the staff! The spa is very nicely designed but needs more attention: when we were there the sauna and turkish bath were not working and the Spa was a couple of degrees too cold. We loved the heated lounging chairs but hated the real loud music and the lighting (please put in some dimmed lights). The Jaime is situated in a perfect location and you can park your car across the street in a parking garage. A fine place to stay while you're in palma de mallorca.
Excellent Location and lovely hotel
Just returned from a w/e break at this hotel and I can say we were very pleased and suitably impressed with the hotel. I had read the reviews on tripadvisor and so avoided the x10 rooms. We actually were on the 7th floor in room 701 - right next to the lift but we had NO noise problems whatsoever!
Great hotel, rooms are very modern and CLEAN, as is the hotel. The breakfast is buffet with a good selection of what you would expect in most European Cities, again the breakfast room was in a similar style to the rest of the hotel, but not that 'cafe-like' as suggested by someone else on this site!
Excellent location for exploring Palma - you practically have everything on your doorstep and you can travel by foot to shops, restuarants/bars and sites! I would definitely go back again and actually will be in June 2006 for one night!
Nice for business and leisure, perfect location, good design !
Nice Hotel, it shows a 'best effort' in decoration, welcome and breakfast ! Some rooms maybe noisy due to proximity with lift and room cleaning locker... But overall feeling is 'nice and comfortable' with special mention to 'zen' like black, red and white furniture. In room mini-bar and toilet products are available and of good quality. Breakfast buffet is very well provided and of good taste and quality. The restaurant is ok for a conveniently located break ! Unfortunately wifi connection is of bad quality though being free of charge... Location is perfect for business and leisure in Palma de Mallorca at 500m off the Old City Centre ! Parking is possible quite in front of the hotel lobby at night ! During the day, parking is more difficult but manageable... Definitely a place to recommend for business and tourism !
Great location, stylish rooms.
We spent 5 nights at the Jaime III in the centre of Palma de Mallorca. It is ideally located for exploring the city, very central + around the corner from one of the main shopping areas with plenty of restaurants in the vicinity.
The room + bathroom were medium sized + very stylish in white, red + black, almost zen-like. Breakfast was in the small cafè-bar attached to the hotel, a decent buffet spread.
The only drawback was our particular room, 210, as it was located next to the door to the cleaning cupboards + the baning of that door started not long after 7 a.m. Apparently this is a common problem with all X10 rooms, so avoid these if you can.
We stayed here for four nights at the end of March. We were delighted with the spacious, modernly decorated double room. Everywhere was scrupilously clean. We had a larger than average decked balcony overlooking the canal. We did manage to sit out with a bottle one evening and watch the bats. However it was March and still very chilly in the evenings. The breakfast was ample, continental style. We also used the restauarnt a couple of evenings. The food was the best we found as many restauarnts were still closed until the season started. The location was perfect for everything, the cathedral, harbour, shops etc. The staff were reasonably friendly, but some struggled with English. I would definitely reccommend this hotel and would stay there again.
An extremely good value hotel with a modern contemporary style. Externally this hotel is nothing to look at but internally the recent renovations have been entirely successful with plenty of frosted glass, wood and design classics. The staff are helpful and it has a well presented, if a bit pricey, cafe attached where you also sit for the comprehensive breakfast. The rooms are big and well appointed. There is also a spa bath/sauna room with some gym equipment. The location is ideal for the old town, shops and the harbour front. The only downsides are no pool or sunbathing area and the lack of English menus in the cafe.
New Opened this Month of May 2004 , complely new and well decored and funishing
In the best location of the city, completly new opened may 2004 , well decored and furnishing. the best value for money hotel I fond it.
Very nice - would go back again
(Oct 2003), A review of a hotel often depends on expectations and how much is paid. (we paid 77 euros per night per room, a special offer). A person spending double this price may expect luxury!
We are a pair of 50+ who do our own thing, having stayed in 3* to 4* in a few European city centres. Personally we used the hotel for 4 nights as a 'City Break'.
The Number 1 (one) bus from the airport (by luck) takes you right to the front door!.
On the whole we were very pleased. The area was quite upmarket, being a stones throw from the swish shops. But just down the road was the harbour and some back street bars with genuine Spanish tapas, (quite rare these days!).
We rarely use the facilities of 'receptions' but they were cheerful and helpful. (We were cheerfully lent a hairdrier). The rooms were actually quite large. Ours looked out onto the 'torrente' (canal) which had very pleasant promenades on both sides with gardens and well illuminated at night. The bedroom was admittedly a little dated, but had a wide picture window and armchairs to watch from. The bathroom was fine. We were on the penultimate top floor. The lifts (elevators) were fine. The restaurant on the ground floor served an adequate buffet breakfast with plenty of it. There was also a little hot food if you wanted it. The staff were very cheerful and pleasant. This restaurant was open to all (including the general public who made good use of it) which is always a good sign. We were 'off colour' with colds and used the restaurant every night and enjoyed the food at quite reasonable prices. There were others with easy walking distance.

We decided that it was ashame not to visit Palma so after we found out that we could stay another night we headed into the town before it got too hot.
The (old) town turned out to be so much better than we had expected. Really interesting with different styles of architecture and quite buzzing.
We visited the palace and the cathedral. In the afternoon we finished the chores we didn't complete yesterday and then went back into the old town for the ...

There was a huge motor boat anchored right in the middle of the bay therefore finding a suitable spot to anchor in proved pretty tricky.
Another boat which had arrived just before us turned out to be a Danish couple we had
met last year on our travels. We last saw them in Lisbon. Had a quick chat which was nice.

It's our last day in Palma, and we're off to Chic restaurant tonight at 6.15pm and hope to be back in our room by 7.30pm or soon after as the Gangways close then and we're hoping for a healthy and competitive Mallorca Marathon.
