Travelled as two friends, looking for a pleasant base for a 3 day city break.
We arrived from the airport on the bus (route 1), the stop on Passieg de Mallorca is just 5 mins walk from the hotel (you can also get a taxi for €20).
We were really impressed with the friendly reception staff and delighted by the large, modern room with twin beds, flat screen tv (some English channels), fierce air-con and French windows opening onto a small balcony over Av. jaume III.
The roof has a terrace bar and seating area with amazing views over the town, harbour and surrounding mountains, plus a sunbathing area with loungers and a shower (only complaint was that the bar didn't open til 6pm!).
Breakfast was buffet style, with a good choice of cereals & pastries, cold meats & cheese, fruit and cooked items, plus fruit juice, yogurts, tea and proper coffee.
The hotel is in a great position for sight-seeing. The cathedral and palace are 5 mins walk, as is the main area for tapas bars and small restaurants (between Av jaume III and the sea front). You can also wall around to the port, or go east along the seafront to the (quite nice) municipal beach and then to the quaint village of Portixol.
Palma is a fantastic destination for a restful few days, with interesting shops, lovely art & architecture, and great food (including lots of excellent vegetarian options / places - so unusual for Spain!).
I would love to return to Palma, and definitely stay at the Almudaina - it is a lovely hotel, in a great location and excellent value for money.
