Have just spent 4 nights here with friends and cannot say how much we were all amazed at this hotel. We had junior suites and ours (Room 104 - very quiet, at least in April) was collosal. The room was an inner one overlooking a little back yard courtyard but we had nice shutters so that was no problem. We had TWO fourposter/canopy beds and there was room for more. The ante room was quite spacious with a settee, coffee table and wide screen TV. Our friends had junior suite Room 308 (not quite as big as ours but good) on the third floor which was a bit of a hike but a nice room actually overlooking the beautiful courtyard where I believe breakfast is eaten during the warmer months. The Staff were really helpful, the food at breakfast was superb, who wants bacon & eggs when the continental one is so varied and ample. The hotel was clean throughout although the carpets were a bit tired on the upper floors but we weren't there to look at carpets. The fact that this hotel is an old palace comes across very strongly when you look at the beautiful reception area and grand stair case. The hotel is situated in a narrow alley/road just off a main shopping area and boulevard with plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants. 5/8 minutes walk takes you down to the Cathedral and the waterfront so that is a bonus. Walk the other way for 15/15 minutes and you reach the railway stations including the station for the Soller train into the mountains - a trip you must do, it's a fantastic day out. The only downside is the fact there is no lift so anybody with mobility problems could find it difficult with the stairs but do stay here! It's well worth it. All of us can't wait to go back to this hotel and will certainly revisit some time in the future. Palma is actually a lovely city to stay in as opposed to the beach resorts if you like a bit of culture and sightseeing.
