The Boutique ABaC Hotel now occupies two houses. When speaking about the building, it is referred to as “the old house” and “the new house.” Guests staying in the old house get a glimpse into the daily kitchen life as they walk through the kitchen to the elevator to get to and from their rooms. The kitchen was a theatre in the old house, which was once an Embassy of the United States. To keep the spirit alive, they decided to have guests walk through it to keep it as “a show in day-to-day hotel kitchen life.”

The boutique hotel contains only 15 rooms. The rooms in the old house vary in size due to the renovations of the existing building. The rooms in the new house are the same size. The elegant rooms are light cream and off-white colors. The large windows allow for natural light with lush draperies to block the early morning sun and heat if desired. The hotel only has one standard double room, nine deluxe rooms, and four suites. Most of the rooms and suites have a private terrace. All the room contain a large flat screen TV, a CD/DVD player, iPad, minibar, remote control blinds and lights, a hot tub bath, and Hermès toiletries. Free wireless Internet is available throughout the hotel.

The boutique hotel contains beautiful facilities available for use. The small gym is open for clients to use. The spa and wellness center is an impressive area to relax and rejuvenate. The ABaC Spa offers a hot tub, cold plunge pool, hammam, various treatments, and a juice bar. Access to the spa is not limited to guests of the hotel, so if you are unable to book a room, you can still go and enjoy the space for 25 EUR (29 USD) per person per day. Treatments are an additional charge.

The hotel also has an impressive and inviting lounge area. It is a popular place that is used for drinks and sometimes an appetizer before dinner in the restaurant. Alternately, some people enjoy relaxing and having a few drinks after dinner. Located in part of the Old House, it is also occasionally used for small meetings.
