... already departed to Barcelona - they took a cab. We had a pre-arranged meet with Julien Scheinok in Palma at noon. The Hutts came with us. Despite my attempts to follow Clive closely, I still took a wrong turn and had to rely on Google navigator to get us in. We parked underground beneath Placa Major. Clive went for the cathedral park but had to queue a long time.

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.
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.
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!
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.
