Prime location, clean, pleasant staff, and reserved parking. That said, I place high value on two things during a hotel stay: sleep and access to wifi (for planning activities). Sleep was decent; street noise into the morning hours, the room was hot despite single digit temps outside, and the beds were more something you'd expect to find in a prison... More

The best possible location in Bilbao, close to all. Breakfast is very good as well as the room furnishings. We lived on the fourth floor, our room such as a neighboring room mattresses really hard. Poor sound insulation, from neighboring rooms can heard almost everything .... Not a four-star ranking, max. 3 1/2.

A very good hotel placed in a convenient location, close to almost every touristic atraction in Bilbao. Very clean rooms, good european breakfast, fast check-in and out. Prices OK. The receptionists very kind and helpfull with all the clients. A minus for the hotel underground parking fee (it could be cheaper).

The best thing about my stay at Abando was the good price I got and the convenient location of the hotel. From the hotel, I just about walked everywhere in Bilbao. But the hotel itself is old and tired . The room I had was clean, but not all that big, and everything in the room, including the bathroom looked... More

Welcoming at reception. Good clean room. Overlooked Main Street but good. Underground car park. Our car would not start on the morning we were going to the Ferry, the receptionist was efficient and telephoned our insurers for us. They were all very helpful. The checkout was fast. Great location. Wonderful city.

I arrived at the airport and asked how to get to the hotel by bus at the information. There's no direct bus to Estacion de Abando and found that I have to drop at Pl. Moyua where is located in the center of town and walk to the hotel. After taking a rest in the room (No.226), I got a... More

The Hotel Abando has a convenient location, close to Bilbao's train station and a short walk over a bridge to the "old town" (casco viejo). The staff was friendly and we felt welcome right from the start. Check-in was quick and efficient. The room was clean and comfortable, with a good sized bathroom. During our stay we had some questions... More

This hotel is situated close to the city centre and is comfortable without being special. Breakfast buffet is excellent and substantial. The rooms are adequate without being exceptional. The downside is the cost of parking.
