MERCURE SAN SE­BAS­TIAN MONTE IGUELDO OVERNIGHT RATE

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. The ho­tel ad­joins the his­toric Monte Igueldo amuse­ment park, which has kept hol­i­day-mak­ers happy since 1912 – orig­i­nally built from the ru­ins of the old light­house that used to beam out across the city.

If you’re trav­el­ling as a fam­ily, you might find it hard to tear the kids away from the 20-plus rides and at­trac­tions of the park but when you do, it’s a scenic fu­nic­u­lar ride and 15-20-minute walk (or short taxi ride) to the

Old Town.
