Reviewed 24 October 2013

Overall a very nice hotel with friendly staff and spotlessly clean.

We stayed in room 306 which does suffer a bit from road noise but other wise was large with a big double bed. It is slightly strange in that the wardrobe is in the bathroom!

We would stay here again but would probably ask for a room at the back, away from the road. It is in the centre of the city though so it's never going to be perfectly quiet.

This hotel was in a fantastic central position, check in staff were very friendly and efficient, we stayed in room 314 which was on the back so the view was not the best but the room was nice and quiet, room itself was spotless, bathroom was fabulous, beds comfortable once we had asked for extra pillows which were delivered to our room immediately, the only thing we would have liked was tea and coffee making facilities, we didn't have breakfast at the hotel as there are so many cafés close by. I would definitely stay here again. I must add that the city of Palma is wonderful!

We stayed at the Continental in Palma. The hotel has excellent facilities, but alas nowhere to sit out such as a roof garden/terrace. All said, the rooms were clean and well furnished. The bar did not seem very popular and I suspect it is because there are many bars and restaurants in the area. We did not eat there as we prefer to try different venues. Within easy walking distance of all the main sites and town centre. We spent 5 nights there and thoroughly enjoyed the whole of the Palma visit.

We stayed for 4 nights and used the hotel as a base to explore Palma. Have been plenty of times before to Majorca but wanted a city break in Palma itself. This hotel is only 5 min walk from the start of the main shopping area, I'd say only 10 mins from the cathedral. Its well central to the marina as well. Very very clean, the staff were very polite & friendly and very helpful too. Our room was on the road and you do get a little road noise but nothing too much, but I sleep with ear plugs anyway, so I got a good nights sleep. The room had everything we needed but they don't have tea/coffee facilities in the room which was ashame. We had a very large bathroom with separate shower and bath, which was great. Good amount of wardrobe space.
The hotel has plenty of bars and restaurants close by. We didn't use the restaurant or bar in the hotel as we were out all the time but we did use it for breakfast one morning. Good selection, though I didn't eat my 12 euro's worth of food as I do not eat a lot of breakfast. (We went room only). Overall a pleasant clean hotel, good central location, not far from the airport either. I would recommend this to friends and family and would return and stay there again.

This hotel is very impressive - the condition and cleanliness of the hotel is excellent. It is very spacious and beautifully designed. The staff are very friendly and helpful - and happy to make recommendations about what to do. Our room was stylish and air conditioned. Breakfast is a delicious buffet. It is a shame that more guests do not eat there in the evening - the food was very good and fairly priced - but it was a bit lonely! There is a road two down (Fabrica) from the hotel where there is a string of wonderful restaurants with outside seating. A real buzz here and some great meals.
The Continental is a quater of an hour stroll from the main sites in Palma - ideal!

I did a bit of research before booking this hotel for a four night stay in Palma. I was not disappointed. We had a lovely big room with an even bigger bathroom (complete with sliding door wardrobes)! Breakfasts were excellent with plenty of choice. Loved the fact that all the soft drinks in the fridge were free (if you had booked room which included breakfast). We had a problem with WIFI in the room but it was fine in reception and the breakfast area. We had a birthday while we were there so cards were in the room and later that day a bottle of fizz arrived courtesy of the manager, very nice touch. The hotel interior is beautiful, full of light and extremely clean. We had asked for a room higher up and were on the third floor, there was a bit of street noise but I have to say we did sleep very well, the king size bed was an added bonus.

We tend to walk everywhere when we are on city breaks and were very pleasantly surprised with the location of the hotel, you are only 20 minutes away from the lovely beach near the cathedral which was a bit of a surprise. Lots of places obviously to eat in the evenings. Plenty of good shops too. There is an art gallery, quite a large one, five minutes away from the hotel which was very interesting and another smaller gallery (Caixa)? which was free and also worth visiting.
All in all excellent break and a hotel I would certainly go back to.

Just back from a long weekend in Palma. We booked the Continental because, frankly, it was one of the few hotels with space. That said, we were not disappointed.
The hotel is well located for some of the main shopping streets and for a great selection of bars and restaurants. The city centre is a 15-20 minute walk.
The hotel is well presented and very clean with helpful, friendly staff.
Breakfast was surprisingly good for a hotel of this type with a wide range of fresh fruit, pastries and hot food. Only issue was the very slow coffee maker.
The rooms were uninspiring but were very clean and seemed newly decorated with large new bathrooms.
The hotel is on a busy street so there can be a little traffic noise at night but this wasn't too bad as we had asked for top floor rooms.
All considered this is a good base for a short break in Palma

Room Tip: Higher floors are probably a little quieter as further from the street
