Good prices and good location (5" walk from old town) But need to refresh a bit the rooms. Especially because of the bad and strong smell in the bedroom (we had to change during the night). Also the employees are very very cold: only 1 word ("hello") during the check-in. And no word at all during the check-out... At least... More

The hotel is in a great location, close to the centre of Bilbao and also the old town. It's clean, the beds are comfortable and the room is reasonably well equipped. The WiFi is a real advantage but this is only something I would expect in a modern establishment. It is the 21st century after all. My room was small... More

Renewed hotel with a great location, Abando Station (central station in Bilbao), Cab's station, Subway very close, etc. Really good restaurants near the Hotel. Good reception and very affordable prices if you hire early.

As traveller since many years, I woul say that it is a pity that a good hotel in town has a very poor quality of rooms'entrance door! the noise insulation of walls and doors are unacceptable! Excellent location, very clean, a little too expensive the breakfast and garage charges. In my opinion three stars shoud be enough.

Bed: very large king bed in room 225, crisp white sheets and good mattress. Duvet was perfect, and simple lights at night stands. Room: perfectly working wifi and AC are top features; white laminated floors and furniture create modern style. The rooms across hall were apparently still with older carpeting, brown wood décor so it seems partial renovations have taken... More

I just gave 4 points instead of 5 because my stay was short, no time to judge everything, but my experience was very good there. Room was expensive 140 Eur, but it was during the music festival. No much choice left in town. Receptionists were OK. They said that all rooms are renovated now. I got a room on the... More

This is a nice hotel and excellent for shopping and eating right in the centre of everything I think the price for parking is excessive 19 euros a day but the rooms are good air conditioning in my room did not seem to be working very well but would stay there again because of the location

The location of the hotel is just perfect. Everything is within walking distance. All kinds of bars and restaurants are just around the corner. Around 10 min walk to Guggenheim or to the old part of the beautiful Bilbao. We stayed in a room at the second floor, no complains, the room was cozy, clean and well equipped. The only... More

Out of all the places we stayed in Spain, this was probably the most modern. this hotel is located in a good spot. You are within walking distance to the Guggenheim and the old town part of the city. Getting here was somewhat challenging. Although we had written down specific directions, we somehow missed a turn and our GPS could... More

Very central hotel, ideally placed for either a short break of a business trip. The hotel was clean and reasonably well run and wifi functioned fine. The breakfasts were good and overall I was pleased with the choice. Given the costs it was very good value for the stay. The hotel is close to the old city, river and the... More
