Nobu Hotel San Sebastián – Spain’s new hot hotel opening
Nobu Hotel San Sebastián opened its doors in August as the fifth hotel in Spain for Nobu Hospitality, bringing world renowned Nobu cuisine to the ‘food city’ of the country with the most Michelin-starred restaurants per square metre.
Housed in the former Vista Eder Palace, one of the last historic buildings on La Concha Bay designed by the architect Francisco Urcola, this exclusive boutique hotel offers 17 luxuriously designed guest rooms and suites, the iconic Nobu restaurant, Nobu Terrace with stunning sea views, and a rooftop infinity pool exclusively for hotel guests.
Franco-Basque Belle Époque interior style
The interiors seamlessly unite the Franco-Basque Belle Époque style of the building with Nobu’s signature Japanese minimalism. Using natural materials and traditional millwork, Alía creates a sense of calm and elegance from the moment the guest arrives. The entrance and lobby area are inspired by Torii gates with clean, simple lines, arriving at a stunning sculptural central staircase which leads to guest rooms and suites, where neutral tones contrast with dramatic floor-to-ceiling headboards. Nobu Terrace features an inside – outside space, creating a dialogue with the sea and coastline, while in Nobu restaurant, the classic, pared down Nobu aesthetic allows the dishes to be the star of the show.
Located on the main floor of the property, guests can dine at Nobu’s world-famous namesake where Executive Chef Yannick Lohou and Head Sushi Chef Hideaki Mizushima serve Nobu signature dishes alongside specials which pay homage to celebrated local ingredients, such as txangurro crab, sea urchins, mackerel, and cod cheeks. Nobu Terrace will be open for breakfast for hotel guests, and to the public throughout the day, to enjoy sweeping views over La Concha Bay, Nobu small bites and carefully crafted cocktails.
A well-connected location
Located on the Paseo Miraconcha, the hotel boasts spectacular views over the La Concha Bay towards Santa Clara Island and is just a 15-minute stroll from San Sebastián’s Old Town, Parte Vieja, with its buzzy pintxo bars. The hotel is close to the main railway station with direct connections to Madrid and Barcelona, as well as regional trains to explore the stunning coastline of the Basque Country. San Sebastián airport is just 20-minutes away, with connections to London City and major Spanish cities such as Madrid, Barcelona, Málaga, Valencia and Sevilla, as well as the Balearic Islands.
