We stayed here on our way up through Spain and France and booked it as a four star treat after a seven hour drive. The car park is excellent and very necessary given the area. They do charge, however. The reception area is excellent with a nice bar and coffee area. They also accept small dogs which was a big... More

The hotel room was very spacious and clean. We had a two room suite which was great value. The breakfast was great. The staff were really friendly, giving us all blue neckerchiefs to wear during the fiesta. They also gave us a guide to all of the activities and a map of Bilbao.

The hotel is modern but with a minimalism style in its decor. The room had only one TV, hair dryer, safe but no ironing board. No... More

We spent two nights at this hotel and have only positive comments. We were driving and the hotel is very easy to locate off the main highway into Bilbao, without having to navigate through the city. We liked the location, a short 10 minute walk to the old town and not too far to amble along the river to reach... More

A nice hotel with a impressing view over the outskirts of Bilbao. Everything with the room was excellent. It gave good sleeping for the night. The bathroom was super with some good specimens of soap and shampoo and very pleasant towels. The Safe was enough for my laptop and the wi-fi connection was simple, fast and very well working.

I have to say I'm surprised that this hotel has received so many upbeat reviews. The reception staff were fine, as was the poor overworked yet surprisingly good-natured chap doing the breakfasts (where the understaffing was inexcusable). Service out of hours was thin to say the least and the layout of the hotel and its barren courtyard were depressing (... More
