We selected this 4 stars hotel by chance and it was beyond our expectations. Nice location close to Palma de Mallorca beautiful seafront promenade and a big room with partial sea view, bus stop (going to Plaza de Espana)just outside the entrance, very helpful staff. Who could ask for anything more? We liked it. We enjoyed the stay. Walking distance to the Cathedral and city center. Even bus to the airport was about 300 meters far from hotel.
Stayed here with my daughter for four nights and would definitely stay here again. Lovely big room, comfy bed and a good bathroom withas very nice toiletries. Staff friendly and helpful and it's very well located. A short walk to town and plenty of good restaurants nearby. Great!
Despite the many good features about this 81-room hotel, sadly the lasting memory of our stay here is the noise of banging doors. But first the good points. The location is fine, quite near the harbour. Initial impressions on entering the building, with its marble floor and pleasant reception area, are positive. Wide landing areas on the upper floors are very pleasant and lead off in various directions to rooms and staircases – rather an interesting maze! Our room (110) faced inwards onto a small courtyard, but for privacy we had to keep the curtains closed because there was a public staircase on the opposite side. The room was a good size, with plenty of storage space, comfortable beds, and the best lighting that I have ever had in any hotel – at last I have found a hotel that recognises that some ancient people do actually still want to read the printed word and not just play on their mobiles (there is free reasonably fast wifi in the rooms here, by the way). The bathroom was fine, with two basins, plenty of toiletries and a jacuzzi-bath which worked well. General standards of cleanliness in rooms and around the hotel were pretty good. Buffet breakfast was good (nice to have proper orange juice every morning), with plenty of variety, and efficient and friendly staff on duty. The 10-metre indoor swimming pool was adequate for a bit of exercise, but only half of one of the two jacuzzis appeared to work, and other facilities in the spa area had ‘out of order’ written all over them. Well, it was off-season, I suppose, so we didn’t worry too much about that. Staff at reception were extremely helpful in providing information, but otherwise not particularly friendly or welcoming. Now for the main grumbles. (1) The hotel website states that its rooms are soundproof, which is more or less true between adjacent rooms on the same floor. However, we could hear every small noise coming from the corridor, and the occupants in the room above ours seemed to delight in pounding around the room and scraping furniture along the marble floor at all hours. Worst of all was the door banging at any time of day or night – and there wasn’t even a hen-party or stag-party staying there as far as we could tell. Bang! Bang! Bang, reverberating throughout the floor. This is not really the fault of guests, because the doors are very heavy and difficult to close quietly. There are no spring mechanisms on them to reduce banging and no noise dampers on the doorframes themselves. A pack or two of self-adhesive felt pads from Poundland could solve the problem at virtually no cost! (2) There was no tea-making equipment in the room, not even a kettle. A four-star hotel in 2017 welcoming visitors from overseas without this facility leaves me almost lost for words. There was a fridge, but no min-bar items in it. (3) There was a large TV in the room, but no proper international news or sports channel, such as BBC, CNN or Sky were provided. Again, this is unacceptable for a four-star hotel welcoming foreigners. And sorry, but RT (Russia Today in English) does not count as an acceptable channel! (4) We had a reservation for a double room. We were provided with two single beds shoved together. I have no objection to that - but the beds were fitted with single sheets and blankets!! That constitutes a twin room, just as if the two beds were set apart, not a double. Actually, it didn’t make much difference to old codgers like us, but I suspect younger couples would not have been too happy! (5) The hotel is supposed to be non-smoking, but one day the whole of our corridor reeked of cigar smoke. Guests, or employees, I wonder? The Armadams Hotel certainly didn’t spoil our enjoyable stay in Mallorca, but I am afraid it didn’t enhance it, either, and so we would not stay here again on a future visit.
This hotel is very close to the Airport bus route and is actually on several frequent bus services into the City Centre. The Hotel is very clean and smartly furnished; the staff are extremely helpful. It is really a 4* B&B, though, with an excellent breakfast - both quality and variety. The only other food is from the Room Service Menu which, with a little encouragement, they served to us in the bar. Room Service is only available in the evening. There are restaurants of various cuisines and price range in the vicinity: they are worth the search. Access to and from the waterfront is by a steep set of steps: underneath them - and the road outside the Armadams is an underground car park with a pedestrian lift. Particularly when moving up and down with luggage we recommend using the lift!
Lovely hotel just off the harbour, superb spa facilities, bedroom immaculate (it was bigger than the ground floor of our house), staff incredibly helpful, nothing seemed to much trouble, might not suit people who are'nt mobile, as on a bit of a hill or up some some very steep steps, but otherwise a absolute gem
The Armadams was ideally located for our 4 night stay. A few hundred yards to the promenade, and a pleasant 5 minute stroll to the trendy Santa Catalina district. Only 15/20 minutes walk to the centre, passing numerous non-touristy bars, cafes and restaurants. Very clean throughout. All the staff we met were efficient, helpful and friendly. You are able to store your luggage if you arrive before the check in time. You can also store it after check out if you have a later flight. The room was spacious, although the lack of a balcony was disappointing. Very comfortable beds, the bathroom also spacious, and having two sinks was helpful. The outdoor pool area is small, without sufficient beds and chairs to accommodate everyone, and the pool was quite cold The indoor pool was heated and there were also 2 Jacuzzis and a sauna. We didn't have breakfast as there is an excellent café just around the corner, so cannot comment on the food quality. Although we had a drink in the hotel bar, and it was very reasonably priced. The Armadams also looks good both inside and outside. The exterior has an art deco feel, and the interior has some interesting sculptures. Have stayed here twice, and will definitely stay here next time we visit Palma.
Great hotel, very polite and friendly staff. Easy to get to all of central Palma and have a lovely gentle walk down to the harbour. Loved the mixture of culture, great bars traditional and new. Food was absolutely amazing but a bad restaurant fir any of the time we were there.
We recently stayed here as a group of 19 girls on a hen party. We were nervous as due to budgets we were limited on hotels and the pictures we had seen just didn't do the hotel justice. We were absolutely made up with the hotel. It was clean and was cleaned daily, the rooms were spacious with really comfortable beds. As groups of 4 in a room it was easy to get ready. The pool are is small but it did its job and was pleasant in the afternoons. The breakfast was ample for continental breakfast. We often met in the bar and had a few Gins and they again were reasonably priced compared to some other bars in Palma. However, the real reason we were so impressed was the lady on reception. I have forgotten her name but she was incredible with us. Gave us some fabulous recommendations and constantly helping us to arrange the hen party She often drew on maps for us and arranged taxis were necessary. She was lovely and made everything so much easier for us as a group. Thankyou!!
We stayed here for 4 nights,we had a great room with a seperate piece for our daughter which was great.The Breakfast was great ,it had everything you could want,the staff were always willing to help and told us how to get down to the beach in the lift across the road and not having to tackle the very steep steps.
