Hotel De las Letras pays homage to the world of literature and pictograms, as the first elements of written literature. Its walls are decorated with silk-screened texts of different authors, such as poems, extracts of essays or short stories.
The building is included in the city's heritage register and dates from 1917. It was created by architect Cesáreo Iradier as the home of the Count of Artaza, and was renovated for use as a hotel in 2005 by architects Virginia Figueras and Franco Corada.
It comprises 109 rooms, the De las Letras Restaurant, Lounge Bar, BOCABLO, Ático de Las Letras, the Library, the Gym and the DL's Function Rooms.
The furniture in the rooms was designed and made exclusively for the hotel: pure wool hand-woven rugs with exclusive designs, linen curtains, colours, fragrances... Everything is delicate, warm and very comfortable.
Every room in the hotel is a truly special space, thanks to its high ceilings, wooden windows, great natural light and oak wood flooring. Different colours have been used in each floor, contrasting with the colours of the silk-screened texts and depending on the different levels and categories of rooms, terraces, balconies and galleries.
The cuisine served at Hotel De las Letras is contemporary, made with fresh seasonal market produce. The menu changes twice a year. The wine list is updated with each menu change, and always seeks to provide an excellent price/quality ratio.
It is a four star hotel, part of the anima hotels group.
Just a few steps away from De Las Letras, guests will find three of the world's most renowned art museums.
