Palacio Arriluce represents history, soul, sophistication and exclusivity.

A five-star hotel

and member of The Leading Hotels of the World. 

A former palatial country house converted into a hotel, while retaining its essence and history, Palacio Arriluce has been redefined to once again become a symbol of prestige, luxury and style 100 years after it was first constructed and now it also represents excellence in customer service.

This ambitious renovation and interior-design project has revitalised the palatial home while maintaining its distinctiveness and identity, salvaging and reusing original stained glass and marquetry details as well as some extremely important original artworks and pieces of furniture.
