A short drive from the hotel ia a funicular railway which takes you into the city with a short walk down by the river into the old town with a great selection of small shops andtapas bars, we only had one night in...

Sat nav very useful until one sees a map with all the hill's indentations. Great views, and possible to scramble down the scrubby track to town (bearing left, not right where someone has built a house in the way!) Track degrades into about 1 in 3 slope with scree so ok for the nimble footed and one ends by the... More

Stayed in this hotel for two nights earlier this year. Although our room was a bit basic, it was very clean and the bathroom well appointed. Breakfast was a buffet and had a super selection of meats breads and fruits. The machine coffee was good as well. We walked into the city and took a taxi back, though one day... More

We were catching the ferry and wanted a hotel with car parking and the Artetxe fitted the bill perfectly. The views from the hotel were wonderful, the staff were very helpful and the rooms were very clean and functional. We didn't have the continental breakfast but it looked adequate.

We stayed one night at Artexte. The location is convenient if you are driving as you get free pricing in front of the hotel and you can take the funicular down to the city. The rooms are simple. The staff is very friendly. The prices are reasonable.

A well run family owned hotel with superb views over the city of Bilbao. After driving all day we were met by the owner who gave us all the information we needed for a trip into the city. The room was clean and well furnished if a little small...but the view more than compensated for that. Would recommend.

Wonderful hotel, clean, brilliantly located and good value if you want to stop over to visit Bilbao. Near to airport and near to funicular railway which takes you down into the centre of Bilao. Easy to find good parking and friendly receptionist

very comfortable, quiet location, beautiful view over the town; however you need a car to reach the hotel, it was very easy to visit the city center because the hotel is situated on a short distance of the upper station of the funicular, where there is free parking; excellent value for money

Simple two star hotel. Very clean and large rooms. There was some noise from the neighboring room so if you are sensitive you should ask for a room far from others. The Internet was non existent and cell phone reception sketchy. We did not have breakfast so I cannot say how it was. The dining room is quaint. This little... More
