From its impressive, ornate façade to its grand interiors, a sense of timeless elegance runs throughout the hotel. It’s perfectly situated, too, roughly equidistant between the seafront promenade and the Cathedral of San Nicolas, and just a 5-10 minute walk from the wonderful Central Market.

The rooms combine contemporary design with the building’s historical ambience, with high ceilings making them feel particularly spacious and airy. Thoughtful touches include Egyptian cotton bed sheet, pillow menus, capsule coffee machines and premium bathroom amenities.

Savour the flavours of authentic local cuisine at Fondillón Restaurant, or for a more casual dining experience, tuck into superb tapas plates at Barra Fondillón. The Bistró de Amérigo completes the culinary line-up on the ground floor, serving delicious breakfast and brunch dishes.

On the rooftop, you’ll find a terrace where you can enjoy cocktails while taking in stunning views of the Santa Barbara castle, as well as a pool and a spa with a sauna, a fitness centre and a wide range of massages and beauty treatments on offer.
