FROM $113 (STANDARD INTERIOR ROOM)
Sometimes to grasp the real beauty of a city you have to remove yourself from it and look at it as a whole. Perched on the Cantabrian Sea with views back across the Bay of La Concha, capitalise on the position here by having a drink on the terrace of the Karrusel Gastro Bar once you’ve checked in.
