Reviewed 1 October 2010

The staff are very friendly and helpful and the rooms are spacious, up to date and very clean. There is underground parking but you do pay €8 a day for the privilege and don't take a big car as access is quite tight! Although stated that Wi-Fi was available in "some parts" of the hotel, we were unable to find where these areas were! Breakfast was satisfactory but there are local cafes which are at least as good and a faur bit cheaper. Overall however a very good hotel with only a few minor niggles.

Just to confirm other reviews the Hotel and staff could not be faulted. Just a stroll to the front and a little further to the old town.

You do not have to wander far from the hotel to find superb restaurants that are a fraction of those in more trendy locations.

4* and completely corresponds to it! Also a very good value for money.

It is not a large hotel, but has a restaurant and the bar was working pretty much all the time when we needed it.

Spacious, furnished with taste rooms. What could be improved is to introduce key cards for the room, at the time we've been they had normal keys, so we left them at the reception when going out.

Location is in the city centre, i.e. easy to walk anywhere by foot. The street that passes under it is a bit noisy.
We used also the hotel garage to keep our car, and that was one a block away.

I booked the Continental from theTrip Advisor reviews and also because we wanted a hotel as close to the centre of Palma as possible. Some of the central Boutique Hotels seemed very expensive and I could see from the map that this hotel was walking distance. We like walking but even if you don't it is really a short walk to the nice shopping areas, cafes and restaurants and the buses run from a stop opposite.

This hotel is a city hotel, no pool or particular views although our room did have some views to the front and side, and as previously mentioned a bit noisy to the front, although it isn't on a particularly main road, the traffic noise didn't bother us. It is a very convenient location, the bus to Illetes, where there are two small beaches goes from just across the road and goes into the centre, we also walked from the hotel to the train station to go to Soller for the day.

The room was imaculately clean, nice bathroom and the lady on reception spoke perfect English and was very friendly. The day we left they let us store our bags in a locked room for the whole day after we had checked out and even offered us a shower when we returned to get a cab to the airport.

This isn't a trendy boutique hotel, but it is traditional, friendly and very clean and situated in a good position for sight seeing.

was very impressed with this hotel .It is a little bit away from the main stretch but not too far . The rooms are lovely size and immaculate and the free mini bar is great (soft drinks). staff are ok thought they would have been a bit more friendlier to be honest .Breakfast is ok nothing special but plenty of choice . overall its a great hotel and very reasonable too .

Booked this hotel based on excellent TripAdvisor reviews and thought it was terrific. The staff was wonderful and helpful and friendly, and the room was lovely and comfortable. The only weird thing was a strange buzzing in the wall on the last night of our three night stay, it sounded as if a fan was starting to go in the HVAC system, but since it was so late and it was our last night we just put our earplugs in and went to sleep. I had also read in other reviews that street noise a consideration, and it is, but it wasn't overly disruptive. The hotel is central and all of the Old City of Palma can easily be reached on foot. Note that internet was available but for a small fee, which I found reasonable given the relative low price of the room.

This is a lovely hotel in a great location. The rooms are very nice and are furnished in a "traditional" style. The bathroom was very spacious and modern. Their cleaning staff does a wonderful job -- our room was immaculate. There was no view from our room -- It overlooked the atrium roof and surrounding buildings. But we didn't care since we spent until dark each evening sightseeing and dining.

It was a quiet location and in our room, we heard no street or traffic noise.

We ate breakfast in their restaurant one morning and the breakfast buffet is very good.

There was only one negative. They have no "double" beds (queen or king in the US). Only twin beds. The mattresses are quite good, but if you are tall like my husband, a twin bed isn't long enough to be truly comfortable.
