Hotel Abril 37
, Passeig Sant Nicolau 37, Ciutadella, Menorca.
Chic and simple, but utterly tasteful, the refurbishment of this old townhouse into a modern little hotel is impressive. Facilities are few, but this is a wonderfully different way to spend some time on this beautiful island.
The generous space behind Hotel Abril 37 has been converted into an urban ecological garden, complete with an orchard and vegetable garden, making it a perfect place to disconnect and relax on the terrace. This is a space of calm and tranquillity, seemingly far from the bustle of the town. On the ground floor there is a lounge with a sofa and armchairs, an ideal place to chat or read while having a coffee or tea with pastries.
Abril 37 is just a short step from busy harbourside of Ciutadella, an area awash with bars and restaurants catering for all tastes and budgets. Boat trips are also available there, or simply relax, settle down and watch the world go by.
The bedrooms are light and bright, and decorated in a charmingly minimalist style. They all have double beds and en-suite bathrooms, as well as televisions, free wi-fi, minibars, safes and air-conditioning. Four of them have direct access to a small private terrace. One room on the ground floor has a bathroom that is wheelchair accessible.
Tea, coffee and cakes are available, and there's a minibar in each bedroom. Otherwise you'll have to go out to eat, but that's hardly a hardship in Ciutadella. There is a multiplicity of bars and restaurants in the area offering all sorts of options for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Out and About
Ciudadella: There are fabulous fish restaurants along the harbourside. Boat rides also go from the harbour. And there's a great cathedral too.
Beaches: Cala Turqueta, Macarella, Es Talaier, Son Saura for complete peace. Santa Galdana, Santo Tomas and others for more facilities.
Snorkelling and diving
As Menorca is such a small island, everything is within easy reach. Try:
Mahon (At the other end of the island. Huge natural harbour and English Georgian architecture.)
Fornells (On the north coast. Famous for lobster.)
Megalithic remains (In various places)
Decorated in a crisp, clean minimalist style with a queen-size bed, hardwood floors and an en-suite bathroom. There's also a flat-screen TV, safe, minibar and air-conditioning. About 16m2.

Here's What Some People Have Written On Other Review Sites or in the Guestbook:
|Loved this hotel. Has a lot of old world charm. Not grand by any means. But the rooms are small, but efficient. Modern mixed with class old world charm of central Ciutadella. We were able to walk to dinner as this hotel is central and close to the port and many other great sites.|
|We stayed a couple of days and everything was good. The position is perfect to walk into the city, but at the same time enjoy a little calm as the area is very quiet. Our room was on the first floor with a view over the garden. We could even see the sky from our shower. Perfect, with everything clean and well cared-for.|
|I stayed there a week while working in Ciutadella. Certainly I couldn't have made a better choice. A warm welcome. Perfectly clean room. Courtesy coffee and excellent cakes. Going out to the terrace and garden in my time off was very pleasant. Super-comfortable bed. Bright room with pleasing decor. Excellent position. Highly recommended.|
|Very pleasantly surprised!|

BOOK THIS HOTEL
Simplicity and style, extremely well done. Ciutadella is a gastronomic delight, and my tastebuds still retain the memory of the chiperones they enjoyed in a harbourside restaurant there long ago.
