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

If you don't like stairs for whatever reason, this hotel is not for you. If you like real character and history - it is. We have stayed at some of the best hotels anywhere - but whilst this is in no way a luxury hotel, it really is a gem of a base to visit Palma. No frills, but in... More

We had a great time at the hotel, staying in a huge room with two big windows, spacious bathroom and sitting room. It's location is perfect to visit the city and also go shopping. There is a bus stop nearby and all kinds of restaurants, cafes, shops, around the corner. We were leaving early in the morning to catch our... More

Being regular visitors to Palma we had often looked to stay at the Born due to the old age charm of the Hotel and the Central location , having 'wandered in' to catch a glimpse one time. For our latest trip we did indeed stay at the Born , and will definitely stay again. Yes there are no lifts and... More

This is a beautiful property located in the middle of historic Palma and walking distance to major sights. The location alone makes up for the worn hallway carpets, plastic plant décor and lack of elevators and other amenities. We had a third floor room with a nice courtyard view. The window shutters are designed to not close completely and we... More

I recently spent the weekend at the Born Hotel, having a little Autumn break with a female friend. The hotel is an old merchant's palace and reception is situated in the rather grand entrance hall, whilst there are lots of tables and chairs in the interior courtyard for having breakfast and sitting in the sun. Our bedroom was on the... More

Beautiful old palace hotel with a great location in the center of the old town. There was no elevator, but to us it was not a problem. We loved the buffet breakfast, and the ambiance of the interior patio. Located in a quiet street. We would definitely stay in this hotel in a future trip to Palma, and would recommend... More
