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.
