Ca s’Arader is situated on the Portal de sa Font street, in the heart of Ciutadella, just a few meters away from where one of the 5 entrances to the medieval city was. The Bastió (bastion) de sa Font, the current headquarters to Ciutadella’s Municipal Museum, is one of the few remains left of the old fort city wall.
If we make our way into the historic town center, we can see interesting architectonic samples of different periods of history amongst which stand out the religious buildings such as the Cathedral (14th century) or the Els Socors, Sant Crist and Sant Francesc churches, all from the 17th century, as well as the Cas Baró, Ca n’Olivar, Can Saura-Morell and Cas Duc palaces (17th -18th centuries).
Public areas such as Ses Voltes, the Plaça Nova or the Plaça des Born squares also bear witness to the rich history of a city that was Menorca’s administrative, aristocratic and religious power for a long period of time and that today, alongside Maó, continues to carry out an important role in the islands territorial organisation.
With a population of close to 30,000 citizens, Ciutadella currently concentrates an important part of the island’s economic activity. It is, in fact, the touristic nucleus and one of the most important municipalities with regards to the shoe and agricultural food industries.
When it comes to nature, it also plays an important role. Within its municipality, which covers an area of 186km2 of Menorca’s 702km2 , one can find some of the most beautiful coastal areas of the whole island, such as the stretch that takes us along the beaches of Son Saura, Es Talaier, Cala en Turqueta, Macarella and Macarelleta.
Menorca’s unique and rich landscapes and environment, alongside its excellent levels of conservation in a highly populated area, were recognised by UNESCO in 1993 when the island was declared a Biosphere Reserve. A title which differentiates territories that present a sustainable development, i.e., that make their economic growth compatible with preserving the environment.
Fantastic !! The hotel is simply perfect, very quiet, the room is very clean and spacious, and the excellent bed! The most comfortable hotel we've ever been! The attention of the owners is fantastic and you feel really as at home! It is a small secret of Menorca that has made our trip unforgettable for life!
The stay was excellent! The treatment from the moment of the booking (very friendly and professional contact from Puri) to the check out was exquisite. The delicacy and delivery of Pedro, the owner of the hotel, is to be admired. The passion, enthusiasm and humility with which he treats his clients is very difficult to find today. He is the best host as well as the best Menorca tour guide we know! Each and every one of the places he recommended was the right thing to do. Restaurants, beaches, shops, opportunities to buy the famous Abarcas de Menorca or the dancers who make famous a brand there. Spectacular! We will definitely return. Thanks for everything Puri and Pedro! We wish you the very best.
Just a lovely place and a wonderful family. You feel like staying at home, but with better foos and nicer design than "at home" (at least in my place). Not to mention the nicest town of Menorca.
We loved this beautiful town house steeped if family history. Bought forward in time by tasteful decor and it's relaxing ambiance. Pedro and his wife made us feel welcome, sharing local knowledge helping to maximise time during our short stay. Our room was well designed, spacious, light and comfortable with a supply of drinks in a well stocked mini bar which in my experience is unusual for such a small hotel. Breakfast was taken in a beautiful tranquil white clean courtyard connecting to a kitchen where a delicious buffet of local produce was available. Pedro offered fine tea and coffee whilst chatting about our day ahead. The location of this Boutique hotel/home in the old town is perfect for exploring Ciutadella with its fabulous restaurants and shops. We Highly recommend this hotel.
EVERYTHING DESERVES THE MAXIMUM SCORING, SINCE THE ARRIVAL, THE HELP AND INFORMATION THAT GAVE US ABOUT RESTAURANTS OR RENTING VEHICLE ... WHEN YOU ARRIVE, THE WELCOME AND THE FULL ESTABLISHMENT. THE MANAGERS OF THE HOTEL, AN EXCELLENT TREATMENT, TAKE CARE OF THE MAXIMUM TO THE SMALLEST DETAIL. WE GOT ENCHANTED.
The hotel is very well located in the center of Ciutadella in a very quiet area. The facilities are great, very cozy and large room as well as the bathroom. The terrace invites you to disconnect. Breakfast of 10. The best of all the treatment of its owners Puri and Pedro. They are waiting for every detail to make your stay as pleasant as possible (they provide water in a thermal bag daily, beach towels, beach umbrella and bag, something very appreciated for those who travel by plane). It has been a pleasure to meet you. They have made us feel as if we were in our house.
Hotel of 10 !!! It's only been a day since we returned, and I already miss the breakfast that Pere prepared us with so much love each morning. A personal treatment of Pere that makes the stay even more perfect. Always willing to advise you the best beaches or the best restaurants where to go.
Very spacious room, huge and very comfortable bed.
In short, we have felt at home.
I would recommend it to everyone without hesitation.
If we return, we will surely repeat !!
Thanks for everything!!
The hotel was absolutely flawless, from the great communication from the hotel owner throughout the experience to the most minute of details in the amenities. This from really comfortable bed and pillows, to free water bottles in the fridge (although very slight and subtle additions these are the things that just put this hotel over the edge for me) This is most likely slightly more expensive than other hotels in the area, but in my opinion well worth the cost. I cannot recommend this place more highly. It is in my opinion a bnb with 4/5 star hotel feel. The rooms are stylish and have coffee maker with more than enough coffee pods to make any coffee addict over the moon. included we found a small jar of Menorcan biscuits which were a nice snack. Over and above this the room also has a very well stocked mini bar should you not wasn't to leave your room (which trust me I understand why you wouldn't). The room was also very large and spacious. Breakfast was delicious and met all expectation. The bathroom was superb containing an endless supply of encoutrements, from cotton buds and cotton pads to a powerful shower. I could go on and on, but lets just say if you are staying in Cuitadella, this is the place to stay.
Very welcome Pedro who does not know what to do to please his customers. Second stay a week after the first in 2017. Everything is still very good I can only recommend a stay in this hotel. to say that compliments for the attention of the breakfast to the quality of the rooms. We will return to enjoy more of the terrace We are waiting for the cover!
Pedro, the owner, provided us with many good tips - regarding restaurants, walks, etc. The breakfast is unique: jamón pata negra, fresh bread and croissants, freshly squeezed orange juice, etc, etc. The room and bathroom are very spacious and with a lot of taste. Many extras in the bathroom. A place to fall in love with! Ciutadella also surprised us very positively.
