Accomodation

There are two possibilities this year.

1. The Mirador hotel (http://www.hotelmirador.es/es/) has two hotels that we can choose from. One (the Mirador itself) is located immediately across the road from the bay. Some of the rooms have a view of the ocean, but not all. This hotel apparently tends to be a little noisier with regards to traffic etc. The other hotel (the Armadams) that they have is located right behind the first one (literally only across the road), and thus is one block from the main seaside road. The Armadams hotel is newer (i.e. has slightly better rooms), and is less noisy. Both have exactly the same price, and each of us can solicit their room booking according to preference. If one of the two fills up, then there will be no choice. If no choice is indicated, the hotel will put people wherever best suits their reservation list. It is a 20 minute leisurely walk to the conference venue, but there is also a bus going from the hotel to the conference venue. The prices are:

-        double room with two occupants             110 Euros

-        double room with single occupant             85 Euros

Breakfast is included. To make a reservation, contact Marcos Gil on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and mention the EGRIE seminar 2012.

2. The Almudaina (http://www.hotelalmudaina.com/) is only some 200 meters from the conference venue, but does not have any nice views. The prices are:

-        double room with two occupants             116 Euros

-        double room with single occupant             85 Euros

-        single room                                            78 Euros

Breakfast is included. To make a reservation, contact Miguel Pons on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and mention the EGRIE seminar 2012.

Where is Palma de Mallorca? How to get there?

Palma de Mallorca (Palma) is the capital of the Balearic islands, an archipelago of Spain in the western Mediterranean Sea. The four largest islands are: Majorca, Minorca, Ibiza and Formentera. The archipelago forms an autonomous community and a province of Spain with Palma as the capital city. The current Statute of Autonomy declares the Balearic Islands as one nationality of Spain.

The co-official languages in the Balearic Islands are Catalan and Spanish.


Mallorca is a busy holiday destination, providing traditional beach holidays almost all year round. With a busy international airport, flights to Mallorca are available from many European travel destinations, with several countries operating multiple flights every day.

There are also many flights from/to Barcelona (30 minutes trip) or Madrid (60 minutes trip).
