Araxa Hotel
Ranked #28 of 74 Hotels in Palma de Mallorca
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 April 2010

Third time in Araxa last.august. That tells a lot. Araxa is cozy family run hotel at the quiet area of Palma. Walking distance to La Seu about 3 km but on the way lot of interesting to see ; Stroll through Santa Catalina area gives you an idea what Palma used to be in old times.
Staff at the hotel area very nice and friendly. Braekfast buffet is great with some variety from day to day. There´s 3 course lunch and dinner avaiable daily . 16 € /person ( ex.c drinks).
We have experience of only so called triple rooms and those are bit weathered bur lot of space. Cleaness is great.
If you´re too tired to walk there´s several bus lines going to center from 100-200 m from hotel. As far as I know some lines take you to the Illetas or Playa de Palma beaches if desired. If you rent a car there´s lot of free parking space available outside on the street in front of hotel. Garage has room only three cars.
I recommend this hotel exspecially to people who has lot of experience of Majorca before and want to stay away from most hectic tourist areas. From Araxa you have easy access to every possible activity on island when desired. This is great option instead of renting a flat as the price is bargain and you don´t have to cook and do the dishes...; )

Their website says something like "a calm oasis...." and we found it to be just that. It's set behind a garden with pool and trees and on a fairly quiet road about 10 minutes' walk from the prom and about 20 mins walk to the Cathedral. Our friends who were staying on the prom in the Costa Azul (which costs a little more) said they preferred the Araxa.

It has a relaxed and comfortable feel to it. The lobby and rooms have a traditional Spanish air and both are roomy and comfortable. Bed was two wide singles pushed together: a little on the firm side for me, but not so for my partner. We also had a single room which was much smaller but comfortable, and like the double room, had a balcony overlooking the garden.

Breakfast was a fairly extensive buffet and good. Free internet in lobby.

Friend who had two small children found it welcoming and fine for the kids.

We'd definitely use this hotel again. Good value (booked through an online agency).

Best breakfast ever, taken by the garden-pool! Free internet, great pool, friendly staff, good food at the restaurant, nice atmosphere. Only the location was a bit unsuitable if you want to go for a swim or go to the center but the bus stop is near. Warm place overal.

Had a brilliant time in Palma in June, weather great and town and people very friendly. Stayed in the Hotel Araxa which we all (4 couples) recommend highly. Lovely quiet position between the castle and town, superb swimming pool and garden and very friendly staff and a good price. About a 20 min walk form hotel to castle and town, ideal for walking dinner off. Found a lovel restaurant on the water side by the fishing harbout

My friend and I found this hotel on the internet and the reviews were satisfactory so we thought we would go for it. Only being in Palma for 4 nights it was perfect. We enjoyed the 15-20 minute walk to the Cathedral along the harbour and didn't experience any problems even later in the evening when walking. The room was nice and spacious and good shower. Breakfast was perfectly adequate with a good selection of food. Surely something for most people. They had a small jacuzzi and sauna in the basement and what seemed to be a well equipped gym although we didn't use that. The staff seemed very polite and were happy to help with maps and directions. They also had free internet access which is useful but not a necessity. We would return to The Araxa and recommend it to people who don't mind walking. We did not use the bus but did use a cab to get us to the station to get to Soller.

I was only staying one night in Palma, so on reflection I shouldn't have picked to stay at Hotel Residencia Araxa, even if it only cost 59 euros for a single (including breakfast). I had read the Tripadvisor reviews before booking, and while they said it wasn't in the centre of town, I hadn't appreciated that it required a 15 minute bus ride and then a 10 minute walk to get there. Luckily, the bus system in Palma is pretty frequent, punctual and cheap (1.15 euros). Another thing to note that it only has one non-smoking floor, which means my 'request' for a non-smoking room was not guaranteed. Luckily there wasn't a lingering smell of smoke in my spacious room, except when I turned on the air conditioning (which I didn't need for long as there was a balcony). The rest of the hotel was pleasant, calm, and spacious, with a pool, gym and spa.
