Small friendly hostal and very centralPosted Jul 23, 2014
Pros: Friendly, clean and central. Nice garden area and that Jasmine!
Cons: It would have been nice to have a kettle and cups to make a cup of tea. However, there is a small café on the premises.
Location: There are a couple of bars and cafes very close to the hostal, which is itself only 5 mins from the central square and station. Beach is not too far.
The hostal was just what we wanted for a 3 night weekend break. We arrived very late (gone midnight) but had phoned ahead and informed the owner, Pepita that we would be late and she answered the door as soon as we rang. She showed us to our room and pointed out how clean it was! However, it was clean so no problem. We had Room 7 which had a balcony overlooking a small garden and the main road Avenida Palma de Mallorca. We enjoyed a beer we had bought at a supermarket across the road and inhaled the scent of a beautiful jasmine bush which floated up from the garden. We did not find the place too noisy considering it's proximity to a main road.
ok for the pricePosted Apr 10, 2014 on Hotels.com
I picked it after having read all of the other reviews on here, thinking that considering the price and how short my stay was going to be, I wouldn't mind any of the downsides during my one night stay. The location is quite close to the beach and not far from the city centre. The particular smell mentioned by others was only noticeable by the entrance, definitely not in the room, which was quite nice and had a small balcony with a view of the garden. One thing I'm not too sure about are the locks on the doors - even when I had locked the door from the inside and didn't remove the key from the lock, the cleaning lady still managed to open the door (with a key of course) from the outside! Made for a rather awkward situation.

Cheap , quirky and good value.Posted Dec 16, 2013
Pros: Price and location
Cons: The whole place needs modernising but then the prices would also need to be modernised.
Location: Close to train station/town centre/shops/restaurants/supermarkets etc
First of all , after reading some of the other reviews , I was expecting a smelly cat ridden place .In fact I didn't see one cat and although I did get a waft of cats pee in the reception ,really the hotel is kept very clean and is really does not seem to be as big a problem as people make out. Yes the hotel is VERY dated - the decor and furnishings seem to be from the 50's and 60's but they keep the place clean and staff do their best to make you comfortable. All in all I thought the hotel was pretty good value . Where else can you get a room with private bathroom/TV/Air con/heating and balcony for 20Euros? It has a certain charm and the hotel has a decent bar/cafe attached where you can get drinks and snacks. The location is also good , being a very short walk from the train station and town centre.
