This is described as a chain hotel but it has a pleasant personality, with steps of marble rising to the upper floors, friendly staff, and a delightful street front restaurant built into the ground floor. I asked for quiet rooms on upper floors away from the elevators on two separate occasions and got each, both times. The breakfast is simple... More

My wife and I made our reservations online at the TRYP Arsenal a few days before arriving. The rate was great and the location excellent. Transportation by the tram to the Guggenheim Museum was only a short distance away and within minutes we were at this wonderful museum. Taxis were always available right outside the door of the hotel. Also,... More

We booked the tryp arenal for the first part of our holiday. We could only book one night as the hotel was full due to the night marathon taking place in Bilbao on the Saturday. The hotel location was perfect, right beside the old town. The hotel itself was lovely, we had a room on the 4th floor with a... More

By location, it's perfect - opposite a leafy park and on a corner of the Old Town, just metres from Plaza Nueva, bars, shops & cafes. It's a short stroll across the nearby Puente del Arenal into a central shopping area, close to the metro, buses and trams and a 15 minute leisurely riverside walk to the Guggenheim museum. In...

We stayed in this hotel during Aste Nagusia (Semana Grande Fiesta week) and we had an amazing, if a 'little' noisy, 3 night stay. Music, fireworks, bongo drums, bands, street performers etc. all going pretty much through the night!! Crazy but brilliant! When we made our original booking we asked for a room in a quiet position and the hotel... More

Nice hotel located near shops, restaurants in the Old Town section of the city. We were there during a marathon so it was a little noisy in the park across the street, but nothing terrible.

This hotel is on a corner of the old city, in front of the park that lines the Ria of Bilbao. It is very convenient in that it is very near the train station and not far from sites like the Guggenheim. A warning: there is a fair amount of noise from traffic and people in the street. Therefore, the... More

We arrived at this hotel after a really long day travelling. The staff were very friendly, the room was clean and bed very comfortable. Parking was an issue but if you can speak a little Spanish and book with the hotel in advance then it can be fine. The parking attendants are really helpful even with my broken Spanish. I... More

This was the half-way point of our week-long trip through France and Spain for my other half's big birthday (don't ask). I wanted to push the boat out a little and spend more than usual to make it a real treat. The initial wow factor was there, the room was spacious, and airy. We were a little taken aback that...
