This is the only hotel in San Sebastián’s for-locals-only neighbourhood of Egia, integrated into the Tabakalera, a former cigarette factory-turned-cultural centre. The gorgeous, traditional stone exterior of the building gives way to a creative and thoughtfully designed interior. Playful details such as decorative copper tubing and swings in the lobby keep things light but seriously stylish. The hotel’s 42 rooms all look out on the street, and their gigantic windows let in loads of light; they feel downright palatial, with soaring ceilings and, in many rooms, balconies. Silencio, the hotel’s below-ground restaurant, offers traditional Spanish bar food with modern touches.
