“Lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

We went on a groupon voucher, so obviously didn't pay full price, but they seem to offer special prices on their website which are worth investigating. It is a really smart, clean, historic little hotel, very quiet in the old streets, but central to all, super little spa in the basement, great terrace, pleasant staff, excellent breakfast. If we ever go back to Palma, I'd definately try to stay here again.

Good location in old town; very narrow streets with glimpses of stereotypical Spanish courtyards; very modern - probably aimed at young couples. Glass door into bathroom is a bit disconcerting - especially if staying with a friend rather than a partner. Palma is a great place for a short break.

My sister and I stayed here Feb/March 2012. Elegant, tactfully converted hotel in the old part of Palma within easy walk of city centre and beach. Room large and beds comfortable. Shower excellent. View from the rooftop garden great. The staff were just terrific and particularly helpful when my wallet was stolen - so helpful. Adrian who operates the bar was a ray of sunshine in the morning. We loved it and would happily return. I'm completely perplexed why anyone could legitimately describe this as a sterile city hotel (Owen 1981) as it was anything but - Full of character, big windows, stripped back walls in warm honey coloured stone. Some traffic noise in our road facing room in the mornings. Value - excellent but it was a 3 night groupon voucher!

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the garden are quieter..

We loved the location of the hotel. Right in the old part of the town and you can walk to everywhere in Palma. I Loved to huge window that opens up to the beautiful back yard. It was clean and comfortable as well. Great for two nights, but I can't imagine staying there for longer than three days as the room was small.

Sterile City hotel, suited to business travel.

Expensive and poor attitude from staff when we complained that the room was not as described. We also had to have the sheets changed when we first checked the room because they were stained - but to be fair this could be a one off as the hotel & bedroom were otherwise clean.

The hotel is well located, but lacked charm/character. We didn't try the food in the hotel as the breakfast price convinced us to explore the city to find a different place each morning.

Our recent February trip was disrupted due to snow & we were unable to do our planned coastal drive. We stayed an extra day in Soller but found it expensive & a little quiet so we added a day on to our 3 day Groupon break at Santa Clara. We were not disappointed.

The hotel is really well located near the cathedral, in the old part of the city - not so great if you have a car but you really don't need one as it's so close to the airport & you can easily walk around the city. Our room was spacious, loft style with white furniture & bright accents. Unlike other island hotels we had everything we wanted - fridge, tea-coffee facilities, great shower room, huge room & bed & not forgetting the HEATING...only thing missing was the view!

To compensate for lack of view we had a small internal courtyard with space to sit. Great views to be had from the breakfast room & the roof terrace though eventually the "musac" on the latter got too much for us. Staff were lovely, very helpful & knowledgeable with perfect English - a big help as our Spanish is iffy to say the least.

We got to know the city better & enjoyed the restaurants of Marc Fosh, especially "Simply". We can also recommend a nearby bistro, Las Olas, serving french food by day & Cambodian by night. Don't miss Mercat Olivar about 15 mins away & pick up slices of meats & cheeses for your at home tapas.

Can highly recommend a city break in Palma & Santa Clara, not the cheapest hotel or city but so convenient from most UK airports & so much variety. If you see another Groupon for this then snap it up, it's great value.

Room Tip: Choice of courtyard or window - you decide, area very quiet.

We stayed at Santa Clara for one night during a longer holiday in Mallorca so that we could have two days in Palma and stay overnight. Located in the centre of Palma behind the cathedral and so very close to shops and plenty of restaurants and bars and the only bad point about the location is the lack of parking.

The hotel was modern with stone walls, clean with very friendly staff and nice and warm on what was a chilly night. Great breakfast overlooking gardens at the rear of the hotel.

We would definately stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in 103 which had a little patio.
