Greeted by a charming young man who made you feel very welcome. Check in dealt with quickly and taken to our room. Basic, but spotlessly clean. twin beds that were super comfy. Outstanding view from the bedroom window. Bathroom, again a bit small but spotless - very nice free toiletries. The bar was closed when we arrived but the young... More

Overlooking the city from high above, yet close enough to reach in a few minutes by car. The staff could not have been more helpful, providing so much advice when we were held up by bad weather which delayed our ferry to England. We came with our dog who was also made very welcome. The restaurant across the road is... More

Excellent view of Bilbao, a nice family hotel run by two brothers, very clean. The funicular is 2 km far from the hotel. the best way to arrive in Bilbao is by car.Friendly staff. I stayed in this hotel at the ending of november - beginning of december and the rooms weren't heated, warmed enough during the night.

We stayed here for 1 night before coming home on the ferry. Vey convenient location for Bilbao if you you don't want to stay in city centre. (we had a loaded car and wanted a safe carpark!) We got a taxi down to Bilbao for the evening. Rooms very good value; staff very friendly and helpful. Lovely view over the... More

One of the best hotels I have stayed. Need to have a car to get there (uphill) as it overlooks the city of Bilbao. Easy transportation to the city via a funicular which runs every 10 minutes. This is one of the best run small hotels. Eva (the owner) is a pleasant multilingual hard working woman. The rooms and bathrooms... More

Very friendly, clean, but more of a overnighter than a break. It does what it says and everything works. WIFI is however very poor, and the shower head did face straight into the face and was not possible to alter. Being way out of town on top of the hill it did on my previous visit have a restaurant which... More

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...
