Only a one night stopover but more than adequate for the 90 euro price. Rooms pretty basic, breakfast same, but clean enough and the location and the lobby/courtyard more than compensate. Staff were fine and polite. Would I stay here again? No problem, I mean it is next to C&A, what more could a nostalgic 80's High Street Aficionado look... More

This is the second time I've stayed at Hotel Born. A 2-star hotel at a reasonable price bang in the centre of this lovely city. I echo some of the previous comments. This is an old palace with stately Spanish entry area looking into a large courtyard area (where breakfast is taken). The negatives are minor (for a 2-star) -... More

We stayed at Born in the end of August 2014 together with two other family members. When we arrived in the middle of the day we had to wait for the reception staff to show up. They did not help us carry our luggage three floors. The breakfast was really bad although the backyard was really majestic. The beds are... More

Just returned from a 2 night break to Palma where we stayed at the delightful Hotel Born. Although rated at just 2 stars, my friend and I both agreed this was not indicative of this lovely charming hotel. Having read a couple of derogatory reviews before travelling, we were slightly apprehensive of what we would find, however, once there we... More

A fantastic hotel. Quality throughout. Quiet and small, right in the center of Palma. Try it, you will not regret. It used to be a classic mansion, with a central square where we had our breakfast. Not a place for kids, I would say

Beautiful hotel in old private palace, just 50 meters off Passeig Born. The location is perfect, on a peaceful small alley just 50 meters from Palmas no1 shopping street. Wonderful lobby and courtyard, where you can eat your breakfast. No elevators and 3 floors, choose another hotel if stair-climbing with your luggage is a problem. I guess that only the... More

I have stayed at the Born Hotel on several occasions and it has always impressed. A listed building it has beautiful traditional interiors and a wonderful courtyard where breakfast is taken. Don’t look for a pool, computers or indeed a lift but the location and price can’t be beaten. The rooms are plain but very clean, the staff are helpful... More

The hotel is in a fantastic location , hidden up a cobbled side road. Walk 40 meters from the oasis that this hotel provides and you are right in the middle of the upscale shopping area and a 5 min walk from the old quarters. Impressive entrance hall to this old merchants house which was built in the 1700's ,... More

Hotel Born has a fabulous location in the center of Palma. Walking distance to everything, attractions, restaurants and shoping. The hotel is an old converted palace. Wonderful building and patio. Rooms small and not very good sleep quality. The breakfast that the hotel "offers" one of the worst I have experienced. But worth to keep in mind if you want... More

Hotel Born is well situated- in an expensive and upmarket side of the city- on an alleyway, off Born Street. It has a very attractive courtyard where guests are allowed to carry their breakfast trays to. Air-conditioned bedrooms are comfortable but all public areas, such as the lobby, are very hot due to lack of air-conditioning. There is free of... More
