IBAIA ET ARRAMAK GUESTHOUSE OVERNIGHT RATE FROM $151 (SUITE)
Tucked inside a historic mansion facing the Urumea River, a 10-minute walk from the Old Town, this stylish boutique guesthouse opened in early 2016.
Double rooms are available but the best thing about staying in the apartment (suite) is the light that floods in with oversized windows on three sides of the living area. High ceilings and stone pillars create a feeling of space with concrete underfoot, and design touches bring nature indoors – taxidermy butterflies, a hanging vase filled with pine cones and driftwood.
You have direct access to the shared courtyard and if you feel moved to DIY, there’s a fully-equipped kitchen.
Tip: Stay with someone you really like. The bathroom is fairly intimate with frosted glass facing into the bedroom and a sheer curtain in place of a door. IBAIAETARRAMAK.COM
