Location is very good. It is only approx 10 min walk to the main bus/train station, and approx 15-20 min walk to the main shopping area / cathedral / marina, along nice streets. There are a few cafes and restaurants nearby - definitely go to "Tasca" (owned by Mark Fosh) only 3 streets away - lovely food - and stop for a drink and snack in the 31 Decembre bar / cafe 2 blocks away - great staff and resonable drinks.
Staff at the hotel were really nice, very helpful and friendly.
On the day of our checkout, we didn't need to be at the airport until about 6.30pm. I was delighted that the hotel offers late check out of up to 6pm for a mere €15. This gave us the chance to do some more exploring / shopping before coming back to our room, packing, and showering.
Room was clean, rather small perhaps, with a free fridge and safe in the room. The air conditioning worked well and was quiet. Wide range of channels on the flatscreen TV in Spanish / English / German.
The free wi-fi was good too. Signal was low in the bedroom, but we easiy accessed it in the lobby.
Bathroom was very clean, and furnishings looked relatively new. Very good power from the shower, which is a huge plus for me!
The one minor downside was the elevator - tiny, especially when you're bringing up big bags - but then again, we managed to squeeze in 2 adults and 2 pieces of luggage in one go, so it's only a minor complaint.
Sure it's lacking some of the extras of a resort-like hotel - there is no pool, gym, restaurant or bar/lounge - but it does exactly what it says on the tin and is excellent value for a base to explore the lovely city of Palma. I would definitely return.
