Simply furnished city hotel in a great location.
- The refurbished Amic Hotel Colon is situated in the center of Palma's active business district. The area surrounding the hotel is filled with shops that have a local appeal. A great place for families, the business traveler or the sports tourist. Open year-round and thanks to its unbeatable location, Hotel Colon has excellent transport connections and is only a 10 minute walk to the train, bus and metro station at Parc de Ses Estacions located cross the street from Plaza de España. From here you can obtain tickets to take off and explore the island or hop a ride on the old train to Soller. Central shopping areas such as Las Avenidas, Calle Olmos (or Oms), Calle San Miguel, Las Ramblas and some of the most visually impressive old bars and cafes are nearby such as the Bar Cristal in Plaza de España. The locals love to hang out at S'Escorxador, the Modernist style slaughterhouse turned culture and restaurant complex. Here you will find the Renoir Cinema showing original version films. S'Escorxador is especially welcoming in the summer when the terraces are filled to overflowing. The semi-pedestrian street, Calle Blanquerna is 2 blocks away with several quality restaurants such as the Tasca de Blanquerna run by Michelin star chef Marc Fosh and for the art lover, the art gallery Sampol Sampol is just a stroll away.
The simply furnished guestrooms feature a fully-equipped bathroom, television, telephone, optional safe deposit box and optional air-conditioning and heating. The superior rooms feature 2 queen size beds and jacuzzi tubs. This hotel welcomes pets, offers bicycle storage area and rooms for non-smokers. Internet service and TV room in public areas.
