About this listing
Luminoso y romántico piso en el corazón de Palma de Mallorca
Romantic and sunny apartment in the very heart of Palma city, located on the Townhall square, Plaza de Cort. Palma's Cathedral and main sightseeings are just around the corner. From the apartment you will enjoy the charming views over the roofs of the old town, cathedral, a modernist building and the Sierra de Tramuntana. There is a living room with kitchen, 1 double and 1 small single bedroom, 1 bathroom with shower and a small balcony where you can enjoy a glass of wine at night with our welcoming bottle of Spanish red wine ;-)
It is ideal for visiting the city on foot, going to the beach (15 min on foot) or making trips around the island. In the area there are plenty of shops, "tapas" bars, restaurants and the old traditional Majorcan bakeries. It is very safe and quiet at night.
The flat is situated in a pedestrian area, however there are public and private parkings in 5-10 minutes walking distance. Public parkings (blue line zones) are free at night from 8pm-8am, Saturdays from 2 pm, all day on Sundays and public holidays. The closest private parking is on Plaza Mayor in 5 minutes walking distance.
If you ask for, we would be delighted to provide you with a personal advice on where to eat, where to buy and what to see on this beautiful island!
We had a lovely week in Marias apartement. It was very central, basic, bright and cosy. We especially likes the balcony, the views and the welcoming bottle of wine. The apartement is on the top floor which is OK if you're in good health. There was also a parasol you could borrow and all the maps you would need. Maria was easy to get in touch with and very helpful. Overall a great experience, thank you!!
Had a fantastic time staying at Maria's flat, brilliant location in the centre of Palma, within a few minutes walk of the cathedral and all other major attractions in the city. Maria was extremely helpful and checking into the apartment was quick and easy. Def recommend! :)
The hosts are very nice. They left a complimentary bottle of good white wine in the fridge for us and provided plenty of information and maps. The location is really good, right in the heart of Palma casco antiguo. And the views are really good and interesting, facing a beautiful building and romantic views of old city roofs (tejados). The problem is that there is no lift and if you have heavy suitcases like us, it is a bit of a problem being on the 4th floor. The photos are realistic, but the place is very basic, with no air conditioning in the bedroom, we couldnt sleep there, so we took the bed to the living room/kitchen where there is aircon and problem was solved that way. Also, the shower's hook is broken so makes it difficult to wash your hair (but the owner said he will fix it at some point) There is no toaster or juicer for example, bits and pieces that you expect for the price you (website hidden) is so small that even if the owner fix it (which he offered) it wouldnt matter much. Another interesting problem was the bells from the nearby cathedral playing at every hour (and half hour) during the night, yes! all night long for the whole week mid July we stayed...1am, 2, 3, 4, 5am in the morning...we couldnt believe how loud and how unnecessary that was! We would have left earlier but we paid in advance! I think the place is overpriced (just over 200 AUdollars p/night we paid) for what you get.
The apartment was sunny, breezy and very nice! You can take a nice sunset shower. Maria was friendly and meeting up was uncomplicated. I definitely recommend this place!
Wir waren das erste Mal auf der Insel. Marias Appartement war die perfekte Wahl um Palma und Mallorca zu erkunden. Zentral gelegen, sehr hell, sauber und gemütlich. Maria war total hilfsbereit und flexibel, bei der Anreise und während des gesamten Aufenthalts.
Fazit: Wir haben uns wohl gefühlt und sind nur widerwillig wieder abgereist. Marias Appartement können wir empfehlen!
Communicating with Maria before my arrival was very easy and we met nearby the apartment - Maria had everything ready and she took time to show me the apartment and explain what was nearby.
There was a detailed guest information folder that had everything we needed for a safe and hassle-free stay.
The apartment itself was exactly as described, spotlessly clean, very comfortable and perfectly located. Everything in Palma was in walking distance. The apartment has a little balcony with a great view and the wifi was super-fast - really important as I had some work to do during my stay. The bars and coffee shops opposite the apartment had really friendly, welcoming staff and Maria's recommendation that Plaza Mayor's restaurants should be avoided should be followed at all costs!
