Reviewed January 3, 2014

we spent there 4 nigths around New Year's Day.
Good standard (4*) of course: entrance, reception, parking, room, breakfast and so on - except for some annoying details - but nothing of the spanish soul we would like to find! Besides, relatively central position (20 min walk from the Cathedral), recently renewed, but located at a crossing: very noisy despite double glazing. The worst was that, if you like sauna, you have to pay 30 euros! to much! and they do not have an internet point with a PC and a printer ! (I was forced to use the director office for my online check-in). After all: despite the reception kindeness, next time we will look for another hotel.

Room Tip: ask for the few rooms facing the interior courtyard

We stayed in the Hotel Continental for four nights at the end of October/beginning of November. Reception on check-in couldn't have been more friendly or helpful and we were given a spacious side-street room (307) which was very comfortable with a large bathroom with both tub and shower. Both room and bathroom were spotlessly clean.
Initially we found the pillows too hard and so we were immediately given softer ones which were perfect.
We booked room only and so we can't comment on the breakfast.
The WIFI signal in the bedroom was quite weak so the best place to access internet is in the bar on the lower level of the hotel.
The location is great because it is near the Santa Catalina area where there are lots of good restaurants and tapas bars and it is also easy to walk into the centre of town.
Would we recommend the hotel and stay there again? - most certainly.

Stayed here with friends as part of a short break in Palma.
Stayed Fri and Sat night in October.
Hotel surprisingly large, very well appointed and room large and very nicely done. Bed very comfortable and bathroom large and clean.
We has a balcony room on 3rd floor (our request for 5th floor honoured, but we preferred a balcony room so swapped).
Be warned, the hotel is on the corner if a fairly main road junction, so there is some noise, but wouldn't consider it intrusive. Saturday night was a bit livelier and we did hear some returning revellers about 5am, but this is a city location, and the only incident of being disturbed.
Staff extremely friendly, and suggested some good restaurants for evening meals. The train station is about 15-20 mins walk away, and there are many restaurants and bars within 10 mins walk easily.
There is parking on site (apparently limited, and 3€/day).
If you want a balcony room numbers 1-5 have them on floors 1-3.
Breakfast expensive if booked separately (12€ pp), but very pleasant. No outside seating areas due to location.
Overall, a very nice hotel with friendly staff, but location might be an issue if you want a quiet nights sleep, but then true of most hotels in the area.

Overall a very nice hotel with friendly staff and spotlessly clean.

We stayed in room 306 which does suffer a bit from road noise but other wise was large with a big double bed. It is slightly strange in that the wardrobe is in the bathroom!

We would stay here again but would probably ask for a room at the back, away from the road. It is in the centre of the city though so it's never going to be perfectly quiet.

This hotel was in a fantastic central position, check in staff were very friendly and efficient, we stayed in room 314 which was on the back so the view was not the best but the room was nice and quiet, room itself was spotless, bathroom was fabulous, beds comfortable once we had asked for extra pillows which were delivered to our room immediately, the only thing we would have liked was tea and coffee making facilities, we didn't have breakfast at the hotel as there are so many cafés close by. I would definitely stay here again. I must add that the city of Palma is wonderful!

We stayed at the Continental in Palma. The hotel has excellent facilities, but alas nowhere to sit out such as a roof garden/terrace. All said, the rooms were clean and well furnished. The bar did not seem very popular and I suspect it is because there are many bars and restaurants in the area. We did not eat there as we prefer to try different venues. Within easy walking distance of all the main sites and town centre. We spent 5 nights there and thoroughly enjoyed the whole of the Palma visit.

We stayed for 4 nights and used the hotel as a base to explore Palma. Have been plenty of times before to Majorca but wanted a city break in Palma itself. This hotel is only 5 min walk from the start of the main shopping area, I'd say only 10 mins from the cathedral. Its well central to the marina as well. Very very clean, the staff were very polite & friendly and very helpful too. Our room was on the road and you do get a little road noise but nothing too much, but I sleep with ear plugs anyway, so I got a good nights sleep. The room had everything we needed but they don't have tea/coffee facilities in the room which was ashame. We had a very large bathroom with separate shower and bath, which was great. Good amount of wardrobe space.
The hotel has plenty of bars and restaurants close by. We didn't use the restaurant or bar in the hotel as we were out all the time but we did use it for breakfast one morning. Good selection, though I didn't eat my 12 euro's worth of food as I do not eat a lot of breakfast. (We went room only). Overall a pleasant clean hotel, good central location, not far from the airport either. I would recommend this to friends and family and would return and stay there again.
