This hotel is perfectly located for exploring the city of the Bilbao, next to the river between the old and new towns. We arrived on a Thursday afternoon and we were given a room on the third floor overlooking the Arriaga Theatre. The room was a reasonably sized and a little sparely furnished. The room and the bathroom were both... More

Very convenient location, just as other reviewers have mentioned, but its location does mean it gets some street and traffic noise. Very professional, helpful and friendly staff, very good housekeeping. Breakfast a bit limited (the only cereal available was corn flakes, for example) but basically just fine - lovely, fresh, good quality croissants, delicious tortilla, wonderful fresh orange juice, staff...

Located on the edge of the old town and overlooking the bridge to the new town, this is a superb location. The staff are all very friendly and very helpful. We had a lovely room overlooking the Arenal gardensa and Bilbao river. Right next to the Plaza Nueva with its many bars and restuarants. Handy for Santander and Abando stations... More

Excellent hotel in Bilbao, good value of money. Very easy parking access. The staff very kind and helpful, specially Maria-Jose. The mercado is very near to the hotel and is worth a visit there. The square Arenal from my balcony was very nice.

Although booked and paid for months in advance, we arrived to find the hotel nearly sold out. Instead of the room we asked for, we were placed in the attic room. No windows, No elevator and sloped ceilings. The room was well appointed, but why pay for a room facing the town square if this place disregards your reservation. My... More

Booking process was excellent and friendly. Needed car parking and hotel staff explained exactly how to reach the nearby underground car park - and exactly what to do to access the hotel's own parking bays. You must book the parking before you arrive. Room at back of hotel with no view but this didnt matter and very quiet. Breakfast is... More

Good points and not such good points with this hotel. Location - excellent and right in the middle of everything here in Bilbao, however extremely noisy all night long if you leave your window open. Air con - apparently, Bilbao turned cool the week before we arrived so the air con for the whole building was changed over to the... More

The location of the hotel was excellent, just on the edge of the old town yet only a bridge away from the new. We were also only a few yards from the Metro. The room was lovely and quite large with a good view of the bridge to the new town. Our only criticism would be that there was not... More
