“kinda comfy, kinda noisy... a good budget hotel”
Reviewed 26 July 2012

the hotel is just a bit far to walk to the city center, but the rooms are clean with excellent A/C, with decent continental breakfast, and I just asked the reception to get the password for an excellent Wifi access. the staff was very nice but yes, you can hear what goes on in the next room.

Only stayed here for 3 nights but the staff are helpful and the rooms are small but clean. The hotel is 10 mins from the Main Bus staion for the Island and the city centre. It is well priced and would stay there again for a short break. Although it has no pool but the beach is 15mins walk.

Hotel is very clean, recently refurbished and of good value for what you pay. Could be noisy if you have loud "neighbours" but it's worthy for who look for a place to stay overnight and do not want luxury. Recommended truly!

Reviewed 23 March 2012

The fair description of this hotel is that it´s VERY noisy (yes, the walls seem to be from paper), and you can hear everything from the neighbouring rooms. There´s no chance of sleep until all guests have gone to bed: you hear the doors banging, people talking, phones ringing ... and then your neighbour snoring....
The other issue is the lift. there´s only one in the hotel and if you happen to be on the upper floors with suitcase and your departure coincides with cleaning staff activity (peak morning times), you might end up waiting 10 minutes for the lift to arrive.
Staff is friendly though some of them seem to have issues with Spanish native accent over the phone.
Breakfast is basic (of adequate quality to the price and so are the room size and fittings).

Room Tip: Ask for the most quiet room they have.

The Hotel Abelay was very nice. It is off the touristic area, so it’s very quiet.

For us, its location was the very best, as we were in the island to visit some family, and they live just 10 minutes away from the hotel. For the common tourist, is not near the beach area, but it’s quite close to the Plaza de Toros, and Palma’s downtown. It is also within reasonable walking distance to the main station.

Our room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The free WiFi worked fine, you need to remember to ask for the login and password in the front desk. If you don’t have your own hardware, there is a PC in the lobby, but the service is quite expensive, 1 Euro/ 15 min. There is a cyber in the same block that is way cheaper.

The staff was kind… about the breakfast… to be honest, I can’t remember… This was our 3rd week travelling around, and I can’t tell if we missed it or if it was OK and didn’t leave a mark in my memory.

We would certainly go back to Abelay next time we visit Palma

I'm sorry to have to give a so bad feedback on this hotel, as the owners are kind, but the hotel is very old, the wall are tooo fine, and the breakfast is very poor.
the position is good, and the price is low comparing with the prices of the near hotels, but too much negative issues in my opinion.
in my case, overall, we arrived in the late evening, and we found the bed not clean, full of hairs. we waited 20 minutes to receive the new sheets, and we had to prepare by ourselves the bed. I'm not a fussy person, but the cleaning is the only really important thing.
