Historical Traveler Reviews Palau Sa Font Palma
Stylish hostel at hotel prices!
Had spotted the Palou Sa Font on a previous trip to Palma and it looked interesting. Booked thro' i-escape website where their appraisal is very high for three nights last month. The guy who checked us in has obviously never encountered the word 'hospitality' and gruffly pointed us in the direction of our room. Whilst the general areas of the hotel were smart and pretty trendy, the rooms were stark to say the least. 'Minimalist' implies some attempt at designing which was not the case. Serviceable bathrooms and spacious yet neither comfortable nor welcoming rooms left us wishing we had booked the Puro (where we had a couple of drinks and it's amazing). Palou was more of a stylish hostel than four star hotel tho the room rates were hotel range; my advice is stay at Puro.
Stylish, beautiful hotel
The Palau Sa Font is a very relaxing place to stay. Rooms are cool and minimalist, but everything you need is there. Service is just right - always happy to help, without ever being intrusive. I stayed in the junior suite, which has its own terrace - great! Continental breakfast provides an ample choice.
This is my second visit but it won't be my last!
Palau Sa Font is a real hidden gem, tucked away in a quiet location but only a stones throw from Tres and Puro in the old quarter of Palma. Hip, chic and understated, this place will suit if you're not having to try too hard to be cool.
Nice little mini pool and tiny covered roof top terrace housing a couple of tables with views over the cathedral an ideal place to watch the sunset and chillout. Its really quiet, seriously relaxed with tri lingual staff(uk, d, esp) and cool if smallish minimalist but functional rooms. Buffet breakfast is the only meal served, but with such a selection on your doorstep this is no problem.
A really good experience
In March 2005 we spent four nights in this very charming and pleasant accommodation. Our XL-room was spacious and comfortable. We like the decently designed interior of the hotel and the atmosphere of a historic building. The staff was very helpful und friendly. We will hopefully return to the Palau Sa Font.

The staff at Palau Sa Font made our stay special
I had a wonderful time when I stayed at Palau Sa Font in the heart of Palma's old town last year, its taken a while to send in this review but better late than never.
The rooms are stylish and ours was immaculate and very comfortable. Go for a large or extra large room, it's worth it for the extra space. Breakfast was deliciously varied and served in the lovely lobby area. The staff at this smart boutique hotel couldn't have been more helpful, they were genuinely kind and friendly, they recommended some excellent restaurants with authentic Mallorcan cuisine and made reservations for us. They also advised on the best attractions and even knew the opening times and entrance fees, making our stay special.
Our room might need a lick of paint soon but in all honesty I would definitely stay here again and recommend anyone going to Palma to stay here. You won't regret it.
A pleasant stay, but.....
We had a pleasant stay in this hotel. The staff were friendly and obliging and speak excellent English and German. The breakfasts were very nice. We liked the decor.
The central heating / air conditioning unit is situated above room 28 and makes a constant noise which can be unpleasant when you are trying to sleep. We were told that the manager intends to resolve the problem sometime during 2005.
Just returned from a two night stay at this hotel. Whilst the public areas e.g. reception and corridors were well decorated with those hip hotel features we felt that for the price (EUR 140), our room lacked those luxury touches. Although the fixtures and fittings in the room were obviously expensive they were fitted badly. The grout in the bathroom was dirty and paintwork looked a little worn. The pool didn't even get the sun for the majority of the day! We have stayed in similar hotels in Spain for half the price and expected much more for our money.
Whilst the staff were most friendly and very obliging I would recommend the Hotel Born in Palma as a better alternative.
Great place to stay if youre into the trendy hip hotels. Infact it was in a book called 'hip hotels' that we came across the palau sa font.
It can be found down a typically mallorcan cobbled street and is only just an arms length from the building opposite but dont let that put you off..it adds to the 'character'.
The hotel is a designers dream and an impressive piece of architecture. If youre into this kind of style of hotel then you will absolutely love it. Its also conveniently close to a great selection of designer shops including a decent sized ZARA. You can also find some excellent restaurants in the alleys down from the hotel.
Overall impression: very chic, interior designers dream and very affordable. Excellent.
Oh, and if youre young enough to enjoy the partys.................spend a saturday night at Pacha Mallorca. Its full of beautiful people and beautiful music.
Loved the Palau Sa Font
We loved our stay at the Paula Sa Font - great location in old city close to harbour, restaurant area and Cathedral, very contemporary with local design influences, excellent breakfast in striking bar/cafe, friendly hosts. Our room (no.6) overlooked the terrace and small pool and was very light and bright. We'd certainly stay there again!
Nice little hotel
The Palau Sa Font is a very nice little hotel located on one of Palma's alley-like streets in the old section. The rooms are small but chic.
Breakfast is included and is a great deal. There's a small pool on the roof.
Staff is helpful but some of them don't seem to know too much about Mallorca. Very strange.

Because the ship is so big we were docked outside the harbour and had to be ferried into Cannes.

They then unlock the boat from the electric crane and manovere the boat around before repeating it for the other two lifeboats. We headed down to celebrity ...
