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. Nice... More

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

The hotel is located a 10 minute walk from Casco Viejo, walking uphill, but acceptable. Difficult to park in the area, (if you're not lucky on the streets behing it, the hotel park is an option with a rate of 12,5€/ night). The rooms are huge and pleasant. Staff is nice, efficient and helpful. Common areas are pleasant. A great... More

Spent one day in Bilbao - which is not enough. Bilbao was the surprise city on the recent drive from Italy to southern Spain via Bilbao, and Salamanca. It's a beautiful city with much more to see and do than solely the Guggenheim. The population is very friendly, helpful, and a number speak multi-languages. But enough of the city. The... More

Be prepared for a walk uphill as hotel is situated at the top of the town. Nice view towards the river and the hills. Big spacious lobby and average size rooms. breakfast area very busy and very very noisy as dirty trolleys were being removed. Staff didn't seem too happy either. problem with inadequate airconditioning in room and although we... More

We spent only one night in this hotel during our Spanish road trip but it was a very nice experience. The hotel is situated close to city center, there is a secure parking below the hotel (12 euro/night) and also outdoor parking around hotel but it may be very hard to find free space. If you prefer garage parking pay... More

Quite good value if you are looking for 4star hotel treatment without the fuss. Modern and with little character(business feel) but the staff are incredibly helpful, especially on reception. 10 min walk down a steepish hill to the Old Town which we found very charming and with more character to walk around in the even ins than the new town....
