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.

A very nice hotel to spend some days in Bilbao. Placed nearby touristic Center of Bilbao. You can leave your car in the hotel garage (payed!) and visit several museums walking. The Guggenheim Museum is only 15min walking. The hotel have an excellent service and the people are mostly friendly. If you book two or three months before the check-in... More

Very well located hotel. Staff friendly on arrival with parking located under the hotel - important in Bilbao's narrow busy streets. At €18 per night for parking, it is competitive. Hotel lobby and bar nice and funky with plenty comfy seats. Rooms are large with big bright bathrooms. We were on 7th floor and there was no street noise. Very... More

Stayed at Hotel Ercilla for ten nights, the room was OK but the hotels location is great. Short distance from most Bilbao attractions (museum, restaurants and san mames). Breakfast is just average and chaotic. They claim they have a gym spa, but I wouldn't really say it is ... but the view from the gym is amazing, and since its... More

Stayed at Hotel Ercilla for three nigths during my first stay in Bilbao. The room was OK - nothing more and location is great. Short distance from most attractions (as most hotels in Bilbao I guess as the city is not that big). What I wasn't so impressed with was the traffic at the breakfast - or rather the limited... More

The hotel is centrally located and within walking distance of the airport busstop. Wifi is free but I found the connection unstable. The room is quite spacious. There was noise in the (very) early morning due to indistinct street activities. Also the bar/lobby is very spacious. I did not have the hotel breakfast but had a tasteful and much cheaper... More

Nice staff, good location, 15 minutes walk to Guggenheim and 10 to Bell Arte. Good rooms and clean. Nice helpful staf at the desk. Slow WiFi in the rooms. If you want to visit Bilbao this is a good located hotel with excellent parking facilities.

I was in Bilbao center two days (one night). I had chosen this hotel because it's located in the center of the city. In my opinion it was good decision, the famous museum in Spain I located 8-10 minutes by foot- of course I'm talking about Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. The staff was so kind and friendly and the breakfast was... More
