Historical Traveler Reviews TRYP Palma Bellver Hotel
On arrival we noticed building work going on next to the hotel so we requested quiet rooms away from the noise. Despite this and being assured our rooms would be quiet we were given rooms directly above the noise.
On checking in we were not advised about any of the hotel facilites, breakfast times, or even the location of the lifts, we were just left to wander around the reception and find them for ourselves.Our rooms were on the 12th floor and were of a good size and well decorated. The bathroom was also of a good size with a powerful shower although the water did not drain away very well so by the time your shower was over you were standing in 3 inches of water. As prevoiusly posted you can here noise from adjoining rooms. That concludes the negatives. The hotel is in a good location and the fixtures and fittings of a good quality throughout. The bar prices were very reasonable for a hotel of this quality and the drinks were of generous portions served by a friendly and helpfull barman. The breakfast was excellent with a good choice to suit any palate.If i were to visit Palma agian I would make this hotel my first choice.
Comfortable but dull
The Tryp Bellver is a comfortable hotel but lacks any character. The rooms look slightly dated and the wallpaper in our room required some repair work. There is a lack of soundproofing and there was lots of noise from the neighbouring rooms and bathrooms. On the plus side the location is great and the buffet breakfast was excellent.
We stayed at the Tryp Belver for a weekend and were really impressed the food was wonderful and the service excellent we were B&B.
the room had a great view of the marina although the weather was not good.
Lovely hotel in Palma
Very charming hotel on the Paseo Maritimo in Palma, good location, easy to walk to points of interest. Check in and out were OK and staff were polite. Very nice room and bathroom, and a balcony with a view over the sea and towards the cathedral. I only stayed one night, and had to leave before breakfast so did not have a chance to sample breakfast in the restaurant, but the hotel provided continental breakfast in my room, delivered promptly at the time I had requested the night before.
This is an excellent hotel situated on a prime site on the Paseo Maritimo overlooking the yacht marina and harbour. Staff are very friendly and helpful and the hotel is spotlessly clean and well decorated. The concierge Martin is particulalry helpful as is the reception staff. Well recommended!
View of the Marina
Have just spent 3 nights in the Tryp Bellver hotel from 9th to 12th December 2004. Very impressed. Location perfect, staff very friendly and helpful. Room not very big but very modern and comfortable. We paid a little extra to be sure of a view over the marina which was well worth it. There are enough restaurants close by but it only took about 15/20 mins stroll to the city centre for some excellent eating places. I would certainly go back.
My boyfriend and I have just returned from a 4 day break in Palma. The Tryp Bellver is in a great location overlooking the marina, about a ten minute walk to the centre of Palma. We asked on arrival for a sea view and upgraded our room for approx 16euros / night/ - this was definitely worth the money. We had a balcony where we could sit at night watching the yachts and cruise liners coming to shore, just wonderful.
The hotel staff were so polite and helped us find traditional tapas bars which had been recommended to us. Nothing was too much trouble.
The hotel decor is lovely, above average. In a way the hotel is quite business like and not really a touristy hotel, however this did not bother us. It appeared that a lot of Spanish used the hotel with their families. The rooms were cleaned daily to a high standard.
The pool was welcomed after trekking round the city, it isn't big, but large enough for a few laps to cool down at the end of the day. Towels were provided.
All in all I would recommend the hotel and would definitely return to Palma and stay at this hotel. Tip - book directly through the hotel website, this saved us a lot of money.
Simply the Best
I've stayed at the Bellver several times now and am returning again this year.
It's an excellent hotel. The staff are friendly and extremely efficient. The breakfast is amazing, the best I've come across and I've stayed in a variety of hotels around Europe.
You can't go wrong with the location. 10 mins from the airport, right on the front at Palma (beautiful city), close to great restaurants and bars.
It is very reasonably priced for such an excellent hotel.
All in all, I cannot fault the Bellver!!
Moderate Palma Hotels
The sol Bellver sits on paseo maritimo, in Plama. Located on the marina side and a short walk from the old cathedral area. Now a Trypp Hotel promising "Business Class " facilities , I found it was the same old sol , just more expensive. It has had a minor facelift. The staff are the same so not great. OK for a short business stay but not really geared for anything else.

... you cannot swing into the wind to help cool down the inside. Managed to get half the chores done – very hot and tiring.
Exhausted, we decided to have dinner out at a seafood resturant near the marina which was rather pleasant.

Hugh and I arrived in Palma on Wednesday afternoon and it was lovely to see the former crew of David, Peter and Bill, who we think, were quite pleased to get off the boat. This could be that Dawson had given them so much abuse that they decided to jump ship or that they were really looking forward to seeing their nearest and dearest or perhaps a combination of the two....

We had hoped that the restaurant might have wifi but no luck. We spent part of out time trying to connect to Orange paid 4 euro for an ...
