This hotel is quirkily decorated and has a BnB feel to it. It's perfectly located in the centre of the old town. The streets around are packed with bars and restaurants. It's within easy walking distance to the Guggenheim and other sights too. The room was clean and was spacious with gorgeous French doors which opened out onto a little... More

As other reviews have said, this hotel is in an ideal location to soak up the atmosphere of the Old Town, so there are numerous bars, restaurants and small shops on the doorstep. The furnishings are a bit quirky, and we didn't understand all the clutter in the reception area. Other reviews refer to a female owner/manageress. When we stayed... More

We spent two nights in this lovely slightly quirky pension. Located in the centre of the Casco Viejo,surrounded by the best restaurants and tapas bars and within reasonable walking distance of most of the sights. Our room was quite small overlooking a dark courtyard but was comfortable clean and had a modern shower room.The owner made us very welcome and... More

Great location in the center of town. Many of the great restaurants are literally just around the corner. The rooms are very basic, but clean. This is a hostel. The owner is very responsive and helpful, but a bit quirky. If you have a car, you'll need to park it outside the pedestrian only zone where the hotel is located.... More

We stayed overnight at this little pension in old town. The proprietor contacted us in advance to check on our room needs and to give us specific instructions to reach the hotel, which was easy to find. She was very friendly and sincere about wanting to accommodate our needs. The building is interesting, as was the decor in the room... More

This pension is right in the Casco Viejo, and an easy walk from the metro station of that name - if you're arriving this way, make sure you turn right inside the station to come out by the archaeological museum in Plaza de Miguel de Unamono, because the other exit appears to be some distance away to the north.

Firstly the owner of this hotel, Igone, is one of the friendliest ,most helpful people you will ever meet. Her hotel is really charming, set in the heart of the old town within walking distance to everything including one of the best tram systems I've seen. The room was always kept clean, it was very spacious & the balcony we... More

My two adult grandchildren and I stayed here two nights. Igone is wonderful and a very warm person who goes out of her way to help. Coffee, tea and rolls for breakfast. Interesting antique B&B right in old town. Recommended!

In Bilbao if you need a central accomodation, clean and informal, this pension is what you're looking for. The place is in the heart of Casco Viejo, on the first floor of a nice building, the rooms, small and cozy, are furnished with a mix of vintage and modern furnitures and the reception / breakfast room is full of ornaments...
