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

I stayed here for a 2 day company event, but with my wife. From a business point of view the hotel was good with reliable WiFi and no fuss over letting us check-in in the morning (this may not be guaranteed in all cases as they had to check a room was available - but great that they were able...

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...

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...
