This hotel is in a great location--you can see the Museum, the bathroom was huge but the room was a bit triangular shaped. The staff was helpful---especially the overnight gentleman. The hotel is plenty close to restaurants, bars. You can always take a stroll along the river.

7 of us stayed here for 3 nights. We all had good rooms with good facilities. The rooms are neither too big or too small; the bathrooms are well equipped. It was all very well kept. Breakfast was very well organised and there was extensive choice. It is definitely worth taking breakfast at the hotel. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend... More

Overall the hotel is goodwe personally choose this hotel for the location. Suites overlooking the river are lovely but I am not so keen on the rooms the have the sink and showers in them. The reception staff can be very helpful but there are a couple who are quite abrupt and I felt like we were an inconvenience to... More

Unfortunately this hotel did not live up to its good reviews. The staff were unwelcoming and the hotel generally was cold and uninviting with a minimalist décor. The rooms were also minimalist with the bathroom in effect incorporated into the bedroom which meant that if you got up in the night to visit loo inevitably you disturbed your partner. Breakfast...

Only having one night in Bilbao, location was important to me. Sometimes it's difficult to gage distance even looking at the map, but for anyone in doubt, this hotel was a comfortable walking distance to everything you'd want to visit as a tourist in Bilbao. Old town was 10-15min walk. Guggenheim museum about 20 min walk. The cool Funicular to... More

And less than 10 mins to the Guggenheim other museums ,... More

We stayed 3 nights and had a very pleasant stay. Booked through Booking.com. We got the bus from Bilbao Airport (€1.45each) and got off at the second stop (Plaza Moyua) and headed for the hotel via the Zubizuri footbridge. No hills, took about 20 minutes. We had a pre-programmed GPS which helped. Hotel Staff were very helpful at check in... More

The Barcelo Bilbao Nervion is located, between the Guggenheim and the Historic Center, at walking distances from both. The hotel has just been renovated, so the rooms are in very good condition. The architectural layout of the bathroom is quite awkward, so when you take your shower and have to dry }you have to step into the room, only good... More

This hotel has a great location right on the river, easy walking to the Guggenheim, neighborhoods, restaurants, etc. We had a river view and enjoyed watching people promenading along the river paths. The breakfast is very good, with lots of options. If you stay here, I recommend exploring the streets behind the hotel. Because you face the river, the inclination... More

This hotel is situated in rather nice location, as you can easily reach the city centre just crossing the river, although the walk to the museum takes about 10-15min. Hotel has parking, but you can easily find cheaper one just around the corner. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The only this we did'n like in the hotel, was... More
