Duplex apartment in the Old City

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Calle de San Lorenzo, Palma de Mallorca, Balearic Islands 07012, Spain

A cozy, spacious, loft style apartment in the center center of Palma. Part of a contemporary reformed townhouse with it's own front door. We welcome you personally and fill you in on all you want to know. King-size bed, WIFI, just great!!

The Space

This apartment is part of our town house but it is fully independent with it's own front door. One big space of 35 meters on the ground floor with a Kingsize bed, a kitchenette (refrigerator , microwave, Nespresso, tea kettle) a table for eating and as well two comfortable chairs. Upstairs is the shower and toilet and space for extra beds. There is a HIFI set to connect and mp3-player, a small library with tourist guide books and reading books and of course WIFI.

The location is in the center of the old city in a great restaurant area called La Lonja. The port, main shopping avenues and cathedral are all a five minute walk. Because of the centrical location there is a trade of with parking a rental car. Although much better than other European cities, one has to reserve a budget of 10-15€ a day or be willing to walk 15 minutes for free parking.

We live (family with two young children) in the same building, from the first floor up. So you might run into us on your way in or out. We are delighted to tell you all the ins and outs of the city, or excursions that you really can't miss. We keep discovering new things, Mallorca keeps amazing, and we love to share it with you.

P.S. The airbnb process of reservation makes that we get to know each other a little before you book, which makes the whole experience so much more personal, relaxed and fun.

Guest Access

The apartment has it's own facilities. You come in through a big entrance where you can leave you rented bicycles or scooter.

Interaction with Guests

We live above the apartment, but in general you won't notice much of us. We always welcome you personally, show you how everything works and give you tips of where to go, how to get around etc.. For any question you have during your stay, if you need to borrow something, print your boarding pass, call a taxi etc... you just walk up the stairs and knock on our door.

Getting around

Being right in the middle of town, most things can be done on foot, Plaza mayor, cathedral, good shopping etc.. Local buses work well , but with more than one person it's almost always worth taking a taxi. a taxi within the city is between 5 and 10 euros.

Nearby parking is metered. 1.80euros an hour from (phone number hidden) and from (phone number hidden). Maximum time is two hours. On Saturdays only until 14:30. Sunday and holiday it's free. Free parking is a 10-15 minute walk a way. On request you can borrow a kick scooter which reduces the time to 5-8 minutes.

From the airport a taxi is 18euros. It takes about ten minutes. There is also a but that goes to the city that works well. Number 1, you get off on the second stop on the Passeig Mallorca and walk for 5 minutes more. The busride takes about 25minutes. With heavy luggage, better to take a cab.

Car rental is often much cheaper at the airport, especially off-season. Nearby car rental charge 40-50euros per day.

  • We enjoyed staying at Roeland's place in the middle of the ancient center of Palma de Mallorca for almost 9 days, but never a dull moment. He's a very nice host which gave us a lot of usefull tips for shops and restaurants in the neighborhood. The apartment was great, just like at the pictures. We will certainly come back to Roeland's apartment if we go back to Palma.

  • Ein sehr schöner Platz mitten in Palma mit sehr netten und unkomplizierten Vermietern.
    Gute und schöne Kneipen und Restaurants in direkter Nachbarschaft.
    Danke nochmal für die schöne Zeit.

  • I can only say THE BEST about everything related to Roeland and his family, my stay at their house and the entire Palma experience! Wholeheartedly recommended to singles, couples and more persons. Loved every minute of my stay!

  • Beautiful building in an amazing area. The decor was stylish – loved the 4-poster bed – and the coffee machine much appreciated. The apartment couldn't be in a better location – in a quiet cobbled street near some great restaurants and upmarket artisanal shops. Within walking distance of the cathedral and city beach (about 20mins away). The hosts were lovely and especially helpful with my young son – providing a high chair and even some toys for him to play with! They were also great at recommending fabulous local restaurants and day trips. All in all this was the perfect base for the perfect city break!

  • True to the pictures, the apartment is very tidy, well equipped and super comfortable. It's located close to several shops, restaurants and a lot of sights, so that you can easily return during the day to refresh or relax from exploring Palma. It even comes with a nespresso machine, which made for a really good start in the day. Communication with Roeland has been pleasant and helpful. He gave us a lot of tips regarding restaurants and nightlife spots in the area as well as how to get to the beach or to the airport. We would love to come back some day. Thank you Roeland.

  • The apartment was just great for us (3 persons), it´s exactly like you see it on the lovely pictures. It´s located in the heart of the old town and in walking distance you can find nice restaurants, bars, the cathedral and much more. There is a small beach 20 minutes by foot away and for all the other (much better) beaches you have to take the bus for about 20-30 minutes.
    Roeland and his family were on vacations themselves so a friend of them was there to welcome us. Everybody was very friendly and answered all of our questions. We felt very comfortable.
    Wifi was working and also the new air conditioner- very important because the air in the flat would be not very nice without it.
    Our flight was very late in the evening but it was not a problem to leave the luggage in Roeland´s house after checkout.
    Highly recommended! Perhaps we will see this apartment next year again ;)

  • We stayed at Roeland's nice loft for 6 days a week ago.
    It's definetly a warm cozy little place located right al the heart of the old town very close to the cathedral and all the town highlights.
    Roeland and his wife have been very helpful and charming and the apartment is very well decorated and has everything one may need.
    If we ever come back we will stay there again!
    Thank you guys!

  • Charming (clean, neat) apartment in old city in Palma; location could not be better. Perfect for our family (couple plus teenage child). No stove, but facilities perfectly suitable for breakfasts and picnic lunches or dinners. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. We were extremely satisfied with our stay.

  • We really enjoyed the stay in Roeland’s Old City apartment. You get what you see on the pictures. Everything is very clean and well kept. New there is also an air-conditioning unit installed which was really useful for us because of hot days in July.

    The location is just fantastic. The old city is beautiful and there are so many different bars and restaurants where you get delicious food and drinks.

    Roeland is a great host. With his information and hints we had no problems to find parking places or lovely beaches and restaurants.

    We really had wonderful holidays in Mallorca and would love to return one day. We can highly recommend this apartment, the city and the whole island.
