This hotel is located above the main town, so a car is essential, but ample safe, free parking and the nearby vennicular down to the town is helpful. The rooms are rather old fashioned in decor, but clean and comfortable. By European standards both the bedroom and bathroom is spacious. There is virtually no cupboard space, so for a fewdaysstay...

Nice hotel, located overlooking Bilbao, but you will need a car to make it practical. Nice friendly management, good English spoken. Steps for walking into Bilbao are very long. Restaurant on property is overpriced. Beware of tripping hazard on floor, entering breakfast area. Should be immediately fixed.

This small family run hotel sits on a ridge overlooking Bilbao. Two kilometers from the funicular to the city proper. Staff is friendly and extremely helpful. The two restaurants in walking distance are great values with solid food (the one on the hotel site has a spectacular view of the city). Our room though smallish was recently renovated with one...

The Artetxe is a modern, well appointed smallish hotel, overlooking Bilbao. There is free parking and a park nearby allowing wonderful unrestricted views of the city in the valley below. The room we stayed in was quiet, comfortable and clean. The service was very friendly and helpful: we were made to feel welcome from the first moment. The downside of... More

We stayed at this hotel and were very impressed by the friendly welcome received and the excellent breakfast . Rooms are comfortable - nothing fancy but clean and homely and good value . The hotel is on the top of a hill overlooking the city and there are very good views. The only downside is that to get to the... More

A nice hotel on a hillside outside of Bilbao, but with easy access to the city. Booked a double room, but was given a twin. However, it was particularly hot and humid on the nights we were there. The shutters over the windows kept the air out (even with windows open) so couldn't sleep, so had to open them to... More

An amazingly peaceful hilltop location with great views down onto the city. Yes you need a car or equivalent to get to the hotel and to get to furnicular railway to access the city but it is worth it. Great rooms, good facilities, good breakfast and English spoken by all the desk staff we dealt with. No in house restaurant... More

We had the good fortune to stay at Artetxe during our visit to Bilbao. It's not centrally located and a vehicle or a taxi is a necessity but short of that it's heaven. The panoramic view overlooking the city is sensational. The hosts are wonderful, speak English, and offer all the help you could ask for. The rooms, while not... More

We found this hotel an excellent place to stay with easy access to Bilbao via a fuinicular. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, especially Eva. Two good restaurants are nearby. For anyone with a car who does not want to struggle with driving and parking in Bilbao Artetxe is a good place to stay.

The hotel is near Bilbao, however you would not even noticed that is near a big city. We loved waking up in such a beautiful location. They offered great breakfast buffet for 7 euros - we found it reasonable and delicious! I would like to highly that they offer great customer service. We arrived late and we had not advised... More
