Ideal base for pottering around the city. However reception staff need to work on their customer care skills. They come across as being officious functionaries and keep interactions with customers to a minimum. "Going the extra mile" is not a concept they appear to be familiar with nor do they appear to realise they are in the hospitality industry. We... More

The hotel has recently been refurbished with a fresh, modern style within a more traditional building. Well done to the designer! Great location, close to Gran Via, bars and restaurants, within easy walking distance of the Guggenheim, Bellas Artes, and 'Casca Viejo', the old town. Breakfast is expensive so try ,desayunos, in one of the many nearby cafés.

This is a good location. The hotel is about a 15 minute walk to The Bilbao Guggenheim and about a 10 minute walk to the old city. The hotel is quiet, the rooms very clean, the front desk helpful and the breakfast delicious! Would definitely recommend.

£85 a night includes a fabulous breakfast and gives this high quality hotel a highly deserved 4 Star rating for somewhere special to stay. I'm sure such good quality hotels would be much more expensive in the UK. The Abando hotel is situated in the centre of Bilbao, yet is well sound-proofed so you should have a peaceful stay. The...

Hotel Abando is in the centre of Bilbao and as they have updated the rooms I find it a very attractive place to stay. Good size rooms and very nice new bathrooms with a good shower. Staff very helpful and the price good so I can fully recommend the hotel. I love the bars and restaurants in Bilbao so I... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Abando on a number of occasions when visiting Bilbao so I guess that is recommendation enough. It is very well located inside the new town but within easy walking to the the old town. It's also close to the Abando train station, the underground metro and the airport bus stop. There are...

The hotel was selected for being in the centre with parking otherwise the overnight stay was marred by a noisy night. The hotel was for me an average "business" hotel with little atmosphere. Despite it being fiesta time in Bilbao the noise that interrupted my sleep came from general background noise in adjoining rooms and the corridor. We ate breakfast... More

Stayed here for two nights. The hotel is in the heart of the City close proximity to shops, restaurant, local attractions and the old town. Checkin was quick and easy. Only thing which we didn't like was the carpet in the room wad stained and made entrance look shabby.

Superbly located for visiting all the major places in Bilbao. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the accommodation for the price we paid. For breakfast we passed on the regular buffet offer, which we found too much in quantity & price. However we did go for the Express Breakfast, which is served in the bar area and is... More
