“Great value, Central Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Stayed 3 nights in May 2013. Central location - easy walk to old town, railway station and cathedral. Clean and recently refurbished. Rooms are quite small and the safes didn't work in either of our rooms. Staff friendly and helpful. A little noisy on the lower floors on the front of the building from the road but not enough to disturb sleep.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less road noise.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

I stayed two nights at the Hotel Colon in March, choosing it based on TripAdvisor reviews. While initially worried about it being a 1-star hotel, I was pleasantly surprised. The location is particularly good if one is coming into the city, or exploring Mallorca by bus/train, as the station is about a 10 minute walk. The hotel itself is very basic, but clean and well kept. The rooms are small, and have tiny bathrooms, but I even had a small terrace in mine. There are no amenities to speak of in the hotel, hence its 1-star rating. But the staff are friendly and very accommodating. There are some restauarnts nearby, but there are all fairly basic, and seem to be frequented by locals. The heart of Palma is about a 20-minute walk, so not too far for most people. What was great for me, is the number of small bakeries in the immediate neighbourhood, with great pies and pastries. Overall, I was extremely happy with my choice, and would gladly return the next time I am in Palma.

Pro: perfect location, nice staff, very clean, good beds. Location is near a busy street but I slept on a side that I didn't hear anything.
Contra: no breakfast but nice places near by, a little bit noisy but only from people at the hall.

We found this hotel on the internet and decided to stay here because it is relatively cheap and the location seemed to be right for us. When holidaying we don't need somewhere with a swimming pool or other recreation facilities because we just don't use them -- all we want is somewhere comfortable to base ourselves.

Our room was on the first floor, right above the reception area. The traffic noise might upset some people, but we've lived on a main road for years and tend not to notice it. Keep the windows closed and the glazing, along with good blackout curtains keeps the noise out. The room was small, but not so small that it was uncomfortable (no smaller than many other places that we have stayed). The bathroom facilities were compact, but adequate for our needs (shower, washbasin and toilet). Gel dispensers were provided by the basin and in the shower.

Reception gave us the WiFi access details and this worked well (this was free to use). There was an air-conditioning/heating unit, but we didn't need to use it.

It was just a ten minute walk down the road to get to the train and bus station situated opposite the Placa D'Espanya (you can only see the old station buildings from ground level because all the new station facilities have been moved underground).

The number 1 local bus that gets one to and from the airport also stops in the Placa D'Espanya, so transport to and from the airport is really easy -- a bus every 15 minutes during the daytime. It's about a 15 minute trip to the airport and the bus fare is just €2.50 each.

Walk through the centre of the city and it will take about 25 minutes to arrive at the cathedral and harbour front.

Cafe's and bars abound in the area, so finding somewhere to eat doesn't pose a problem. We don't normally make recommendations, but we ate mostly at the Cafe 1916 in the Placa D'Espanya.

Staff at the hotel were friendly and very helpful. The room was kept clean, as were the public areas of the hotel.

for some reason it took us a while to locate this hotel although it is signposted and all the locals seemed to know it. It is very clean although small. I would like to put 3 and a half stars really and felt it was better than 3 stars. With a little help from reception we got wifi in the room. Considering the rooms appeared to be close together and were small it was quiet. the location is good (20 mins walk from the historical part of Palma and 10 mins from bus and train stations and tourist information)and there are plenty of food options. The bar across from the hotel was fine for dinner one night-again good value. It seemed to have most things e.g free wifi, hairdryer, space in the bathroom to put toiletries, good shower and a bath. I chose it because of the price which was one of the cheaper options for central Palma. It wasn't too noisy either since it is near to a main road.

We stayed in hotel colon for three nights at the top floor, room 507. Very nice hotel to stay at, when you want to be close to the shopping streets, the train station and bars. The beach and clubs are further away (30 min walk). Very nice staff, clean modern room, good mattress and a nice shower.Terrace at the top of the building where you can sit/lay in the sun... Don't expect big luxury. No night lamp for example, and if you want to use the heater, you need to ask the staff for the remote.
