Stayed here for 3 nights in room 117, a single room which was reasonably sized. Bed was really firm but not too uncomfortable, room was clean, breakfast was good, the usual choices of pastries, cold meats, cheese, etc and cava! Well, why not?! :-) Hotel is in a great location a few minutes walk from the cathedral and from the... More

If you like a bit of nostalgia this is the place for you!! A really neat hotel with large rooms in a former embassy. Rooms look out onto a courtyard in the middle. Friendly staff, easy walk to all sights in Palma. Very reasonable price as well. I would absolutely stay here again!

Always intrigued by old courtyard buildings in Spain and this was one right in the centre of Palma in the old town. Right at the top of the Passeig de Born a short walk from the cathedral and Parc del Mar yet in the narrow old streets of the historic centre and within easy reach of the transport hub of... More

Very good central location to visit Palma de Mallorca. Rooms overlooking the passage way are very noisy at the weekend, ask for a room above the courtyard if you don't mind paying more. The breakfast buffet sets you up for the day very well with a good choice including a glass of Cava. My only complaint is most staff could... More

This is a great hotel in a fabulous location with helpful staff, good facilities and fine breakfast. Agree with all positive reviews here and would definitely stay again. However, I just wanted to reiterate some of the comments regarding choice of rooms, which I wish I'd taken more notice of before our trip. We stayed on first floor in room... More

We stayed here between Christmas and New Year, and really enjoyed it, Warm rooms, very comfortable beds, lots of hot water. Staff extremely helpful and coffee at breakfast amazing. Reception lots of information on local restaurants etc. Beautiful Courtyard. Loved the little touches of Christmas sweeties, and Bucks Fizz at breakfast. The ponsiettas and Christmas decorations just the right touch,... More

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
