This hotel has been carved out of a 14th-century tower in Ibiza’s upper town, but the harbour and the old town, the Casco Antiguo, with its many boutiques, bars and restaurants, are still accessible from here. The climb back up at night may not be for everyone; however, hotel guests are given a key to open the barrier that protects the old town from excessive traffic – so you can take your car up.
It’s a charming place, with impressive old masonry everywhere, and well maintained. The eight suites come in various sizes, hence the wide range of prices. Some have the advantage of a terrace with a view over the old town, others overlook the courtyard. The largest are big enough for four and have a separate kitchen. The furnishings are rustic-influenced: lacquered iron beds with canopy and fine bed linen, and pretty decorative objects. There’s a bar and a sitting room where drinks are served. Perhaps the most remarkable feature is the peace and quiet.
