The best hotels in Palma are mostly concentrated in the vibrant city centre. Boutique hotels make the most of the atmospheric lanes of the old town, housed in historical mansions that have been beautifully converted into hotel rooms.
Staying in this iconic neighbourhood puts Palma’s small squares, narrow streets and beautiful old buildings all within striking distance and offers the biggest choice of on-your-doorstep shopping streets, restaurants and cafes.
If you are looking for a bargain, a good selection of Palma’s cheap hotels can be found along the cobbled side streets tucked away off Passeig del Born, one of the city’s most appealing tree-lined boulevards.
The leafy promenade itself is full of international high street and designer shopping brands, and chic hotels in restored old buildings. However, time on the Born is actually best spent people-watching from a pavement cafe.
Although the old town’s hotel collection is pretty special, don’t assume this neighbourhood is home to all the best hotels in Palma; the surrounding districts have some enticing options too.
Check in to one of the low-rise hotels in bohemian Santa Catalina, a tiny, laidback neighbourhood that is like a little village in the city and puts you right on the doorstep of Palma’s yacht-lined marina. This area is a paradise for foodies, with casual tapas bars, exclusive a la carte menus and the Mercat de Santa Catalina food market, where you can feast on fresh produce and delicious local snacks.
Alternatively, for peaceful, residential neighbourhoods away from Palma’s tourist hot spots, consider a hotel in the charming areas of Son Espanyolet or El Jonquet.
The hotels in and around Plaça Major are also good at any time of year. The open space is full of al fresco cafes and street artists in the summer and a fairy-lit Christmas market in the winter. You’re never more than a few paces from a nice restaurant in this part of town either, and the Mercat de l’Olivar, a foodie must-see that’s packed with the best of the city’s produce, is within easy reach.
Anyone in search of a sea view, meanwhile, should check out the range of hotels on La Avenida de Gabriel Roca, the seafront promenade.
