Our satnav couldn't find the address of the site but keying in Berrizbidea worked. (The owner is aware of the situation. ) This hotel is ideal to catch the ferry at Bilboa or even coming off the ferry!! It is very adequate in all facilities and so quiet. The welcome was good and the owner speaks excellent English. The breakfast... More

We stayed there for 2 nights visiting Bilbao.The weather was rainy so we had little time to appreciate the view if the city from Artxanda hill.Perfect place for those traveling by car.Free parking.Restaurant "LA Escuela" is just few minutes walking from the hotel.There are trails leading down the hill,starting just behind the building & leading to the city.Nice way of...

Four of us stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment for 2 nights. We were greeted by a friendly staff member, who spoke good English, that explained things to us and also gave us some information on what to see in Bilbao. The apartment was across the carpark in a seperate building to the hotel and has been renovated in the... More

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 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
