We chose Olivo after extensive internet searches for an apartment in the Old Town of Palma. The owner,Cecilia could not have been more helpful both in the booking process and on site - even a slight misunderstanding with the agent was immediately resolved by her. We arrived near to midnight and let ourselves in with a key in the key safe. We were a little disconcerted by the steep flight of 27 steps up to the door of our 1st floor apartment - but it was more than compensated for when we opened the door to a wonderful, clean, modern, open plan space with beautiful views overlooking the medieval guild house 'La Llotja". The photos on the website did not do it justice. The apartment is divided into sleeping, seating and dining zones by the clever use of curtains and blinds which means that the whole space remains bright, airy and open, flooded by the Mediterranean light from the south facing window which opens onto a small balcony. The apartment is spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated, well appointed (cooker, washing machine, iron & board, microwave, Nespresso coffee machine, hairdryer etc) and a small en-suite with basin, w/c and shower. The bed was comfortable, there were a number of storage shelves and a double wardrobe with plenty of clothes hangers (a rare find in rented property. Thank you!). There were helpful instructions in the apartment and though the quarter hourly bells of the Consolat de Mar startled us at first, we soon began to disregard them and they didn't disturb us. They didn't ring during the night and only started again at 8am. Although the apartment is first line, close to tourist attractions and within minutes of Palma's many bars, restaurants, galleries and smart shops we were not disturbed by traffic noise or revellers. We met Cecilia and she was a delightful, helpful and considerate property owner. We can unreservedly recommend Olivo and would never consider staying anywhere else when we next visit Palma.
