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...

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

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
