This hotel is perfectly located for the shopping area of Bilbao and also some great bars and restaurants. The check-in staff were very helpful, but the staff when I was checking out were frankly hopeless. Nevertheless, I had a good stay and the room was spacious, clean and comfortable. I would stay here again for sure.

The hotel was great. Nice, large and beautiful room and bathroom. Location was perfect, walking distance from everywhere. The staff was friendly and overall the hotel has grand old and modern look. Totally recommended. Bad internet though.

Great location in the center of Bilbao, many tapas bars within walking distance of the hotel. The new football stadium is viewable at the end of the road, and can be walked to in under 10 mins, same for the Bilbao museum but in the other direction. Many shops available also. Supermarket about a two minute walk, selling everything you... More

Nearby a lot of tapas restaurants, Shopping and the San Mames Stadium! The big dissapointment was the Reception male Senior Staff...

If you want a hotel slap bang in the middle of Bilbao then this one meets the brief. We were delighted with its proximity to the shops, the attractions and the bars/restaurants. Given we were driving our own car, the on-site, attended car parking arrangements were ideal and 18 Euros / day was a reasonable rate for 24 hours of... More

The hotel is ok, located about 20 minutes walk from the Old City and close to the Atletico Bilbao football stadium. A lot of nice tapas bars close by, and the hotels dinner restaurant is very good. Breakfast is also good. The rooms, however, were nothing to brag about. My room was very small and not very modern, looking in... More

Hotel Ercilla has the advantage of being in the middle of Bilbao and you can walk from there to see everything and after a few drinks at night you still have only 5 minutes to walk. Also, the hotel has a nice design and the room I was in (room no. 530) was very big. However I would never go... More

Our room was large and the bathroom was modern. The air conditioning was nice in August. Check-in and check-out were easy. The carpet was a little worn. The bar looked nice but had no customers when we were there. There are many bars and restaurants nearby.
