With all of the comfort of a hotel and the central location of a hostel, The Hat represents a new vision of accommodation in one of the most central and traditional parts of the city. Occupying a remodelled 19th century stately home, the hotel's 42 rooms – containing a total of 220 beds – are decorated in a functional and ecological style with vintage touches that bring it into line with the interior decoration seen in the most modern hotels. It offers common areas for use by residents and tourists alike. The most notable of these is the multi-purpose room known as The Cave, used as a venue for exhibitions, concerts and DJ sessions. It also has a solarium for exclusive use by hotel guests, which becomes a sky bar open to the public at night, with open-air barbecues and showcooking offered at the weekend.
