Many travelers prefer to stay or base themselves in Ciutadella de Menorca, as it's the perfect gateway to the island's northern and western coasts. If you're looking for a more active vacation, this is an excellent region. And Ciutadella offers historic charm and direct access to the island's Cami de Cavlls trail that wraps around Menorca, meaning the picturesque Sa Farola Beach is just a 20-minute walk.

Faustino Gran has an ideal location for exploring Ciutadella de Menorca. You'll be around the corner from the city's main viewpoint and the stairs leading to the port, and the cathedral is just two minutes on foot. Enjoy a relaxing luxury property with nine room types, including a two-bedroom suite, a rooftop terrace suite with a hot tub and cathedral views, and a private villa with multiple bedrooms and its own pool, kitchen, and terrace. The rooms feature tile flooring, wall cutouts, beamed ceilings, rustic wooden furniture, and woven decor, such as rugs and hanging lamps.

To truly relax, head to the property's spa, built into the vault of an ancient cave. The wellness center offers a thermal water circuit, an indoor pool made with natural stone, a sauna, a steam room, a relaxation area, and a treatment menu. Continue unwinding on the rooftop terrace with city views or in the garden with its outdoor pool lined with sun loungers and palm trees.

Hotel Artemisia

Hotel Artemisia is tucked away on a quiet street in the heart of Ciutadella de Menorca's charming Old Town. The street curves around colorful buildings and puts you just two minutes from the city's cathedral and five minutes from City Hall, the port, and local markets. More than that, this property feels like a hotel, art gallery, and cultural space in one. The owners renovated the building from its origins as a 14th-century manor house, and all its current details pay homage to Menorca's culture and natural appeal. 

Just nine rooms form the hotel, all with a neutral foundation and pops of color in elements like rugs, quilts, and pillows. The smaller double room is a little tight, so you might want to book a bigger unit. Keep in mind that the attic rooms have sloping ceilings, which add wood beams but might not work for taller guests. The largest room in the hotel is the Terrace Room, complete with a stunning outdoor patio with white walls, arched windows, wooden furniture, colorful decor, and rooftop views that will enhance your stay.

Quiet and quaint, Hotel Boutique Can Sastre sits on a curved brick street used mainly by residents. In less than five minutes, you can stroll through these charming streets and reach sites like the cathedral, port, City Hall, and markets.

You'll find Sodium Boutique Hotel across from Plaça d'Artrutx, a lively square leading into the center of the historic Old Town. Nestled in a quiet corner of Ciutadella, the hotel is on a charming brick-lined street and just steps away from many sites, including the cathedral, port, and City Hall. The hotel is in a 19th-century manor house with a chemistry theme. The aim is to preserve some of the building's historical details, like its beamed ceilings and mosaic floors, and create a relaxing space that honors Menorca's tranquil, natural atmosphere.

Each room has a private outdoor space and an element as a name, so you can stay in the Sodium room and enjoy its simple, relaxed vibe and furnished terrace. Or, opt for the Caesium room with its open floor plan, large glass sliding door, and private patio. And the Rubidium room has its own rooftop terrace, so you can enjoy the bright reds of Ciutadella's rooftops. Overall, the units are straightforward but a step up from the hotel's sister property, Cheap & Chic. In the morning, the hotel serves a simple breakfast of local goods. Learn more

Though there aren't any amenities here, you can still enjoy local products for breakfast and sit under an arched stone ceiling in the building's cellar. 

Simple and straightforward, the hotel's five rooms channel the building's history with exposed beams, stone ceilings, and/or tile flooring. Suites add seating areas and some rooms offer private terraces, with the Cavalleria Room featuring a fantastic rooftop terrace with city views.
