Arrive in somewhat tired, after a full day visiting the coves. All I wanted was to get to my hotel and sit for a while to rest. I knew I had the perfect spot for the photos I had seen, so I did not want to be late. I parked the car on a nearby street and went there.
Arrival at my hotel in Mahon
When I arrived it cost me a bit to find it thanks to Google Maps since it is next door to another hostel that has a family called hostel island. I knocked on the door and they immediately opened and escorted me to my room.
The hotel is located in a three-storey house in the quite central area of Mahon. All painted white, on the ground floor has the breakfast room and kitchen. On the upper floors are the rooms and mine was called es Grau.
Entering the room was a total relax. When I saw that four-poster bed, all in white and earthy colors. The room, quite large, had a queen bed, a TV and a sofa with a table. Come on, it was split into two zones. The bathroom, also very spacious, had the sink area with plenty of amenities, the shower on one side and the toilet area on the other.
It is a super quiet place and although as in many old houses it has that charm when someone wants a door or steps on a maderista, if you hear the noise, it does not bother you at all. Every detail of the house makes it special.
The windows are of the old ones, which the British left in Menorca. They are those guillotine windows, which open from bottom to top and then have shutters both outside and inside to leave the room in the most complete darkness.
Breakfast with local products
The breakfast in the morning was amazing, and I was alone in the lounge quietly. When I entered, I saw, besides the table that was already set, everything that was going to have breakfast. Bread crumbs to cut to size and toast it, Minorcan sausages such as sobrasada, cheese and a bit of ham, fruit, cereals … the pastries are brought every morning from a bakery near the hotel.
There is a fridge in which you will find water and in which you can store your food once you stay. Immediately upon arrival I was asked what I wanted to drink, besides what I had to eat because you can order orange juice, fresh coffee etc …
A very central hotel in Mahon
The hotel is a five minute walk from the city center so it is very convenient to go for a walk around the city and once you are tired go back to the hotel to rest. The kitchen can not be used but there is no problem in using the dining room in case you want to eat something if you are not comfortable in the room. The Wi-Fi connection is great throughout the building which allows you to stay for a while working before bed.
