I'll start with the positives, the reception staff are helpful and professional. The shower in our room was powerful. There are no more positives. The hotel is depicted as low budget boutique style, don't be fooled there is no style here boutique or otherwise. We were disheartened from the start, having been given a room on the top floor but...

This hotel is very well located, 30 mins of walk from the central bus station and less than 10 mins walk from Casco Viejo. Hotel staff was very friendly and some spoke good English, and those who weren't were really patient with our poor Spanish. Room was clean but a bit cramped for two. Room decoration was fun. We were... More

This hotel is located in about 10 minutes from main train station and 30 minutes from bus station, so the location is not advantage of this hotel. At the same time, the hotel is pretty clear and quiet despite that just across the railroad there is very specific San Francisco district. I stayed in one person room and it seemed... More

It is a nice hotel, quite clean and comfortable, and it seams to be undergoing a renovation which is quite needed. The service was very good in general. The location is not that bad, although it is a 20 min walk from all the important stuff. The WiFi was a problem, but all in all it was a good place... More

How to get there? I walked from the bus station. Bilbao is located within a valley and is predominately flat and quite easy to walk around. Pick up a map at bus station. Location Bilbao is not that big a city to walk around and you can easily walk to old town. This hotel is located opposite a Le Corbusier... More

A basic 2* is what you get. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone but it ok for a short stay and good value. Staff friendly enough. it's got a supermarket across the road and a frui and veg shop and cafes on the street. It is on the edge of downbeaten area but not in it, I never felt worried(... More

As others have said the area this hotel is located in is not the best but far from being dangerous. I would consider it an average residential area. Our room was OK. Clean, but furniture was a little tattered. Also our room looked nothing like the pictures on the website, facing a small internal courtyard and being very dark. The... More

Judging by the photos of the hotel online, we thought we were looking at a far better hotel than what we encountered. Certainly, it has ambitions of being hip and stylish, but the place, unfortunately has seen better days, sadly. The rooms are clean, but otherwise, in line with what I'd expect of a 2-star hotel. The area it's in... More

The hotel itself has a style and is easy to remembering. The Beatles billboards, black&white pictures from 60-ties. The staff is nice and colorful dressed. Rooms are OK, nothing significant in any details but decent. The hotel location is the main problem. It is far from the old town (20 minutes walking), it is far from most famous modern Bilbao...
