Good: - Hotel strategically located between the old town and the new town (economic center). - We received keys for the room and the main door of the building to enter and exit at any time (open 24 hours). Bad: - Necessary to go up to the second floor by stairs to reach reception (it was not a problem for... More

This little hotel is just on the riverside and is fantastically situated at just 5 minutes from the Guggenheim Museum and also from the "Plaza Nueva" - the antique part of Bilbao. It is certainly worth what you pay - it is basic but also very clean. There are not many rooms available with views over the river and in... More

This hotel is just perfect. Nice location close to the train station and on the canal. Very clean, room are large with good bed. The best for a short stay. Walking distance to the famous museum but almost the main attractions, shops and restaurants.

This is a small hotel located along the river just outside the old town. It is very basic habitation with few amenities, unless you want to count the bed bugs. I awoke the second night itching all over. There were raised welts in patterns of three all over my face and body. I went to the pharmacy and the pharmacist... More

Well, we stayed at Hotel Ripa for two nights after booking through another website and not reviewing trip advisor! That was our first mistake. We had a rental car and on the website it says you can park for 10 per day with a reservation. I emailed the hotel about 5 days before we arrived to book and never got... More

Hotel Ripa is situated on the river, ten minutes walk from the Guggenheim, a quick stroll over the bridge to the old town, and about ten minutes walk from the central shopping district. Bus stops and trams stops very near by as is the main train station. We stayed from Monday to Thursday and we found the hotel good for... More

Close to old town, good location overlooking the river. Not too friendly staff. I have asked for another room because the other was at the back. They had this nice room in front overlooking the river at same price, but they put me first in another. Not too clean either. I had to ask for a clean protector.

Me and my partner stayed at Ripa Hotel for two days in August. The hotel has a very good location, overlooking the river and is a short pleasant walk to the Guggenheim Musuem. It was noisy at night like what others said but we dont blame this as it was the during the Aste Festival, and its loud and happening... More

I stayed at this hostel/ hotel for 3 nights over bank holiday while everyone was enjoying Royal Wedding back in London. The hotel is situated on the Embankment conveniently close to everything tourist might need in Bilbao. Guggenheim Museum, Casco Viejo, Mouya – everything is within pleasant walking distance. The closest Metro station is Abando, Santander Bus station is across... More

We stayed here for three nights. My first impression was that it smelled of smoke and seemed slightly unclean. Our room was on the street side and if you were to stay here, I would recommend requesting a room on the other side. The noise during the night was constant with a bar right underneath going until the small hours... More
