“Charming and in a great location just up from the Cathedral”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

It w as some years ago that I stayed at the Ritzi in Apuntadors. The English lady and an American gent were the hosts then and charming they were too. It is set around a lovely court yard and has an old Med feel.The area is very close to the beautiful harbour and Cathedral. Beautiful restaurants and cafes are very close together with unusual bars and night life.I liked it very much and have fond memories of the Ritzi, its location, charm and hospitality.

We stayed in Hostal Ritzi from the 2nd till the 5th of May and I have to say I found the latest review of the place a little unfair.Ok its not 5 star but for 60 euros per night we were not expecting that.We found the location to be perfect and the staff very helpful,by the way Leon( the cook ) makes amazing kebabs.Its was clean enough for us and having stayed in many hostals I would say it was one of the best.On the downside the street outside can be rather noisy before midnight so maybe try to get one of the quieter rooms...hope this helps somebody

We paid 60Euro a night for a double room and I wish we saw the review here that said we should just book into the place next door.

Drab miserable, place the only thing good is the nice english lady who runs the place and the location.

Id like to say that I am far from a clean freak/germophobe but this place really freaked me out. I imagined this place to be a brothel at one time-it is close to the 3 sailors bars so i was worried about the all sorts of things I could catch from the dirty looking bedding and linen. Me and my friend shared a double bed as it was a last minute booking - and it being a double bed scared me even more with regards to what had happened in this room previously. I refused to use the blanket and slept on my towel as well as wrapping a towel around the pillow.

It is not even worth the amount of money you are paying.

I stayed only two nights at Ritzi Hostal and I was quite happy to get out at the end of my journey. Like previous reviews said, the main problem is the cleanliness or - the lack of it. The bathroom was really dirty and since my room was in front of a small patio, I was bothered by the smoking of other guests, too. Moreover, Internet was available only in the common space and my room was very near of it, therefore all the time there were very noisy young people shouting and yelling at each other while surfing the net. The only positive thing is location and the kindness of the lady (an Englishwoman) at the reception. Won't go back, of course.

We stayed in both of these. Don't confuse them since their entrances are right next to each other! We left Ritzi after one night because it was so bad. Hostal Apuntadores, next door, was wonderful.

Hostal Rizzi: C/ Apuntadores 6. No elevator/lift. No air conditioning. It was very hot and hard to sleep. WiFi only in the reception area from 8:30 AM to 11 PM. The Chinese-made fan they put in the room made a lot of noise. The door was very thin and did little for privacy. When you went to the shared bathroom in the hall, you had to close the door with a key, otherwise it stayed open. There were bad smells in the room. The sheets and pillows were very old. I imagine many people had sweated in these throughout the years.

Hostal Apuntadores: C/ Apuntadores 8. Everything has been remodeled. Comfortable sofas and new tables and chairs in the reception area. There was an elevator/lift. There was air conditioning (whew!) The roof was absolutely wonderful where you could have breakfast or relax in the evening. Strong WiFi signals throughout the hostal, available 24 hours for free (it seems that the hostal paid for more than one connection).

Prices:
Ritzi / Rizzi: 60 per night
Apuntadores: 55 per night

I spent 5 days in Mallorca for some beach and night partying holidays and usually the prices in summer are just crazy for bed and breakfast hotels or hostels but this Hostel was really a surprise.

Hostal Ritzi is a very well located hostel right in the heart of the city of Palma and near of all facilities. It's located in a old building giving it an unique style and inside you will feel that is your own flat as if you were living there in the old town.

The staff is really cool and very helpful, when we arrived there was a problem with our reservation as we booked for 4 nights in a mixed room but they only booked 1 night in their notes so they gave us 1 mixed room for that night and a double room for the other 3 nights at the same price of the mixed room.

The rooms are nice, some of them have balconies where you can see some good views of the cathedral and the city, there are 2 towels included, all the rooms have small electric fans, and the shared bathrooms are always very cleaned. In the living room there are some couches and a TV but I didn't see too much people hanging around there but maybe because people are outside on the beaches during the day and partying at night.

This is a good choice if you are visiting Palma de Mallorca and if you are not into fancy and touristic hotels.

Room Tip: The mixed rooms worth the try, they only have 3 beds, they are clean, the beds are confy and have a...
