My first trip to Palma and fortunately arranged by a friend who had stayed at Hotel Born previously. It is delightful! Right in the centre of the old town and is quiet and completely chilled out. It is beautiful too, with a fantastic courtyard where you can have breakfast ( which is absolutely great - with fab coffee). We did... More

This is much more than a 2 star hotel, everything it does, it does beautifully with special touches, and friendly, excellent service (Thank you Viktor)! We stayed here for one night in Palma at the end of our holiday, and from the beginning had a great stay. However long you are staying in Palma, this is a great hotel. I... More

The hotel is situated in the city center of Palma in an old palace of a noble family. It has an amazing patio and retro design. Breakfast was absolutely great with one of the best coffees I have ever had. It is possible to eat it under the palm trees in the hotel's patio which additionally makes this experience unforgettable.... More

The hotel was spotlessly clean and beautifully traditional. There was an amazing entrance foyer with a sweeping staircase. The cool courtyard was lovely for having the fab self service continental breakfast every morning. I went with some girlfriends for a weekend away but would happily take my husband there. You are within walking distance of everything Palma town as to... More

My girlfriend and I spend our final night in Mallorca in Palma, and stayed at the Hotel Born. A very unique and elegant, old-world hotel. The room was very large, with two-double canopied beds (although we only used one!), a nice size bathroom and sitting area. The decor has a very victorian feel, with a very grand staircase going up... More

We stayed here for 3 days. On the positive side, the breakfast and location are great! Unfortunately, we ran into several problems.The majority of the staff were rude and unwelcoming with the exception of the front desk staff member on Monday, May 26. He was very helpful. When we booked this hotel, we specifically asked for a double (king), not... More

We stayed for 4 nights at this lovely hotel. Very impressive building with a courtyard to enjoy breakfast. Plenty of choice of continental breakfast including fresh fruit and a large range of breads and cold meats etc. Coffee was freshly made to order and was excellent. Ideally located at the heart of the old city. Plenty of bars and restaurants... More

A lovely hotel in a superb location. If you're an older traveler, like me, you might want to avoid the stairs. I've rarely found such an elegant lodging for such a reasonable price. I'll vertainly return if I can

We didn't mind the stairs, we loved the character of the place, and breakfast in the courtyard was a scrumptious delight. It was an easy walk to everywhere including the airport bus stop. Service was charming and friendly. The room was clean and spacious and comfortable. Would definitely stay again.

We return to The Hotel Born whenever we spend a few days in Palma. Despite the lack of a lift and "our" room being on the fourth floor, it is worth the climb (even with protesting knees). The view may not be magnificent but it is interesting (backs of old buildings). The hotel has a lovely atmosphere and, with a... More
