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
