Let.s get to the point straight away this is a 400 year old building therefore if you are looking for a modren building ie. glass everywhere, lifts, tea making facilities, staff bowing to your every needs look elsewhere. But if you want character, boy is this the place we paid 80 euros a night for a central location, the cathedral,shops,old...

We were recommended the hotel by friends and it is also in Michelin's Green Guide. It met our expectations. It is old but that is part of its charm. The duty staff were always most helpful. The breakfasts were good. All the sights are within easy walking distance.

The virtue of this hotel is its central location and the entrance hall, with its courtyard, is impressive. That's it! Our room (room 308), laughingly called a 'junior suite', was up endless stairs - be warned that there isn't a lift here. The gloomy receptionist didn't think of offering us some help with our luggage. The room was small, with...

We stayed here over Christmas a few years ago. While the lobby and hallways have been prettily upkept (and are shown on all marketing shots), and the hotel is located very centrally- it has seen better days. The rooms are as basic as they come, beds hard as rock, pillows old and flat. Worst of all was the noise. The...

I have just returned from a gorgeous long weekend break at the Hotel Born in Palma.

You have everything you could want within walking distance it was...

Hotel Born has a good location in the center of Palma. It offers a good breakfast in it's beautifull courtyard. BUT..... the hotel needs urgent renovations. Indeed , renovations should have been done 10 years ago. The carpets are worn, the rooms are nothing what the pictures promise but are more Hostel - like. The bathrooms are old and also...

We stayed here in September 2009 for 5 nights and the Hotel completely lived up to our expectations. We will definitely recommend it to our friends. Positive things in our opinion include, without exception, every member of staff we encountered was helpful and friendly. The bedroom & bathroom were clean and functional. TV in the room offered plenty of channels...

We saw details of the Born hotel on a Google Earth search of Palma and decided to give it a try. We found it subsequently on Trip Advisor and the photos were wonderful - one look and we were sold: the hotel is a 5 minute walk from the cathedral, and hidden away in an alley. Through the imposing front...

Hotel staff was friendly during the day and the hotel was in a great location in Palma. The problem is that it's extremely noisy if your room surrounds the courtyard. At about 5am they start preparing for breakfast and you constantly here the rattle of dishes and then through 11am you hear people talking over their breakfast in the courtyard....

I was here with a girlfriend for a short break over the first bank holiday in may. We arrived and had some idea as to where the Hotel was, but when we found it we couldn't have been more delighted.
