Good central location within 15 minutes of Guggenheim and Casco viejo. That's about the only good thing. Room was very small, worn out, double bed was tiny and bathroom not clean. The fridge would not open and once repaired we found half drunk bottles in there. No privacy through window due to flats on other side and not enough lights... More

The hotel is in an excellent location. Close to all the attractions between the old town and the Guggenheim so easy to walk around. Its very clean but the colour scheme of black and red comes across a bit dated. Our friends had a lovely room on the 10th floor with a balcony area but the carpet was threadbare and... More

Hotel Ercilla was a mixed bag, the staff were all lovely and friendly, the hotel is in a really great location...we arrived on Firday at 5pm, and the streets around the Hotel are full of great restaurants, and bars that were really lively and vibrant. The Hotel is massive and impressive from outside. The rooms are a little dated, but... More

You can see that this hotel should have been in the past one of Bilbao best hotels because reception staff is very professional but the hotel is falling apart. I was in room 509. The carpet was not so clean and the bathroom was not cleaned properly. Never mind, I always have my wipes to clean it up. The view... More

I stayed in the Hotel Ercilla during a business trip in Bilbao, by recommendation of the company I was visiting. When you walk in evertything looks very modern and attractive. However, the rooms are a different story. In terms of space they are quite nice however they do not match the entrance. The bathroom is old fashion, however everything works.The... More

This hotel is in a fabulous location. 10mins walk to all the main attractions. The staff on reception are lovely and welcoming. The downstairs decor is a little bit funky. Dark deep colours attempting to give a sultry feel. White pvc sofas in the bar not the most comfortable evening I've had! Bar staff were nice. Everything was clean. Our... More

The hotel is ideally located for sightseeing - walking distance to the old town and just 10-15mins' stroll to the Guggenheim. The accommodation is clean, the service is friendly and the breakfast is good. However, our room was a bit too warm (the thermostat could not be adjusted) and for a 4 star hotel, it was disappointing that there was... More
