“Great for business or a city break”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

We spent a five day break at the Balanguera. We chose it because of the modern urban design. We arrived at the hotel very early in the morning and weren't able to occupy a room until the mid-afternoon. We had been expecting that, so we weren't disappointed. The staff willingly put our luggage in a storeroom while we explored Palma. Our room was as we expected; modern in design, entirely in white and functional. Others have mentioned the bathroom fittings. I would say that, though the granite washbasins are very smart, they are a little small. The hotel doesn't have a bar or a restaurant, but there are plenty close by. I thought that the quality and variety of the breakfast was amongst the best I have experienced in a hotel and was certainly excellent for the price.

I think the biggest drawback is the lack of parking. If you're considering hiring a car, make it small, take the full collision waiver and make sure your parking skills are up to speed. Findiing a parking space requires a great deal of patience and the willingness to be as aggressive as the locals when you spot "your space"! If you really want to spend a Mallorcan holiday, then you should consider staying at one of the resort hotels or at a finca. That said, it's hard to fault it for a business trip or short break in Palma.

Room Tip: Our double room was a little small. A superior might be a better bet.

Stayed with my wife at this great little find. Just right for a city trip, we found it smart, clean and had nice conversations with some of the other guests. Morning was organised well with a simple breakfast served in a great open space. We spent most days out and walked a hole in my socks, so much to see here. Local Tapas were so tasty, recommended hotel.

I especially appreciate clean lines and anything modern I guess, so it appealed to me immediately. The rooms are nice, bright and light and clean. Perfect to wake up in and feel positive about starting the day. There is a nice roof terrace which enjoys panoramic city views and both times we went up there we were alone so it was nice and private and we stood and took some great photos. Breakfast is served in the open plan reception/salon/ dining area. There were newspapers and magazines to browse and the food was very good. We enjoyed the whole idea of this small hotel and what they have created and certainly enjoyed our stay and we were so glad we stumbled across it.

Following our stay in Barcelona, we had our hotel at Balanguera and the room was very designer type hotel and new. It is not a hotel with big lobby and a piano player playing music. It is a city hotel with free wifi and good service and very attractive price. We stayed for three nights but spent most of the time visiting sights of Mallorca. The only problem we had was with the taxi driver that did not know the hotel but at the end he found it. This is hotel is ten minutes walking from the city center and it is more in the residential part but to walk to cathedral is 20 minutes and to the port is 15 minutes walking.

Not a very opulent or over the top sort of hotel, but it is clean cut and has a high end modern designer type feel. Suited us very well for our 4 night getaway. We were able to get to all the places we wanted to visit in the city quite easily. Our room was spotless, roomy and we both liked the shower in the corner of the room which was separate from the loo. Breakfast did not have a massive selection as this is not a massive hotel, but what they had was first class and set us up well for the day. Found it good value for what we paid. Would stay here again if we revisited Palma.

Travelled to Palma with an old friend and stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. It was spotless and everything was new. The staff were extremely pleasant and helped a lot with information about the city and so on. Our room was really nice with pure white bed linen and comfy beds. It is very modern throughout but done very tastefully. Ican recommend this nice hotel for a city break in Palma.

This is a new hotel in the city. Given a genuine welcome with all info we needed and the room we where allocated was very nice. Simply decorated in white with decent bed and nice power shower. The breakfast area is only small and very casual in the sense that you help yourself and sit next to other people on a long table,but I liked the idea and the food was fresh and plentiful.You can easily access all areas of the city from the hotel and we had a comfortable and enjoyable stay at The Balanguera.
