“Very good if you get the right room!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

Booked way back in January for 4 nights but was given what must be the worst room in the building on floor 1. The room itself was fine, comfy bed, safe, fridge etc but it backs on to some sort of electrical or mechanical generator that switches on for long periods night and day, think of being next to a lift shaft where the lift is on a continuous journey. Even earplugs couldn't block the noise. It actually vibrates through the wall.
They couldn't give us a new room until day 3, then we moved to the 4th floor, room had a slightly larger bathroom, but best of all...no noise!
As long as not staying on the first floor I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. Just a 5 min walk to Placa Espanya and the bus and train stations. If we'd had the second room from arrival then Hotel Colon would have scored top marks.

Room Tip: Avoid the first floor

A little gem of a hotel in a central location.

As a trip away with a large group, the value for money was spot on.

Rooms were shared by 2-3 people. 3 per room was cozy, but ideal if only 2 per room. All the rooms were immaculately clean, with the bonus of a fridge and safe each. The two rooms on the 5th (top) floor are worth the little extra spend with a nice roof terrace.

The reception staff were all extremely helpful and had no problems with English language.

Just outside are two cafes serving mediocre breakfast.

The walk into central Palma is a pleasant straight 10-15 minutes walk through the cobbled streets. We stopped out the main square for a beer which was very nice before walking on to the beach.

The hotel is well recognised by the taxi drivers, so we had no problem in getting to and from the airport or around town in taxis.

Overall, if you are on a budget, or part of a large group, this is a great place to stay.

If you're on a budget, then this is a great hotel.

The room was vey clean. The shower was hot and powerful. The air-con worked perfectly. The room had a fridge and a safe. The reception staff were friendly, patient and helpful. They spoke perfect English.

Also another bonus was that all the taxi drivers we used knew the hotel & where it was.

You can walk down to the main square, through the shopping streets, in about 15 minutes.

Although the hotel is certainly in a good location for central Palma, we were slightly disappointed with the experience of staying there. The room was very small, smelled distinctly of drains and the air conditioning was pretty weak. We also returned back from a lunchtime walk into town to find the hotel front doors locked; this is something I have never seen before. We had to knock on the window for 5 minutes before someone turned up to let us in. In short, you can almost certainly do a lot better than this.

Just returned from 2 nights in Palma with a group of friends. Hotel Colon was very, very good value. for this price, the hotel and rooms were spotless. We had booked 7 rooms across all floors. Lower rooms were a little noisy, however two rooms on the top floor were exceptional.
Would I recommend.... Most certainly....!

Room Tip: Go for top floor rooms. A little more expensive but worth every cent.....

the hotel is very good value, and has an excellent location about 5 mins from Playa d'espana (where there is a stop for the Number 1 bus to and from the Airport). The rooms are clean and modern, and there are plenty of places nearby that serve a good breakfast so the lack of amenities is not a problem. The rooms are air conditioned and well-soundproofed. The only problem was that we happened to be located next door to a group of young girls who went out every evening at midnight and returned about 5am, and caused quite a lot of noise in the corridor. But one can't blame the hotel for this!

My first stay in this hotel , 2013 May, six nights was good enough to write a review.I liked the location, 200 meter far from Plaza d'Espana .Easy acces to main bus and train routes.The center of the city was within walking distance but it's better to take the bus number 15 or 2.
My room, 204 was small but comfortable, with fridge, wifi,Tv.The bathroom was clean, no complains.They clean the rooms every day.
I choose to eat out.Some cheap restaurants situated on the same street, 31 Decembre, bakeries and a big supermarket after the first corner were my choice for the breakfast and the lunch.
Finally, a lift!And a big room to keep the luggage before and after checkin/checkout.
The receptionist , a brunette girl had a smiling face.Another one forgot to smile.
I would recommend this hotel for the tourists interested to see Palma with small budget.

Room Tip: Do not stay in a room situated on the first floor, too much noise.
