Rick Steves, the well-known travel writer, led me to the Hotel Arriga two years ago. Since then, I have returned several times as I, too, have been on the Camino. Steves describes it very well. If one wants high tech, the Arriaga would not satisfy one. If one enjoys friendliness, local knowledge, proximity to the Old Town and a short... More

We stayed here in the fall of '14 after completing the Camino de Santiago. It's a one star hotel, so all the basics are covered without any sophistication. The two significant pluses are the prices (inexpensive) and the location. If you want to stay on the edge of Old Town without spending a lot of money, this is the place.... More

This place is exactly what we were looking for, in that we needed a place from which we could easily walk to the many museums in Bilbao. It is not fancy, but clean and friendly. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and fluent in English. Jon has first-hand knowledge of other cultures and languages, but is also very knowledgeable... More

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Arriaga. It was located in the Old Town close by many good sights and food and transportation. The owner was so kind and friendly. We enjoyed our interaction with him and his family. The room suited out needs perfectly. Comfortable beds, clean ensuite bathroom and nice balcony. At times I felt like I was... More

One of the great things about this hotel is location, definitely one of the best in downtown near to the river. It's a familiar business, you can see the grandma, daughter and son running it everyday. Unfortunately for us we asked for a double room with full bedroom and we got two twin beds joined as one... Towels are not... More

Whatever I can recall about this hotel was perfect. It is a decent place for all types of travelers. Rooms are intelligently designed and decorated with all things of comfort. Staff was present all the time to help us. They all were very quick and efficient too. Breakfast was the only meal I tried there and it was great. I... More

We feel like we are staying in a gracious old home. The reception area is filled with lounges and potted plants and momma is a lovely old lady and her daughter is very helpful. The room we have is on the corner overlooking the river and the beautiful theatre, with two balconies and huge windows. A large bedroom with nice... More

I really liked this hotel. it wasn't too expensive - I turned up on the doorstep quite late in the evening and got a decent double room with a balcony. It is in a great location - opposite the tram stop. When you arrive at the bus station in Bilbao it can be a bit daunting - because it is... More

This is a simple one star hotel but it has all that is necessary. It doesn't do breakfast but that can be eaten very cheaply next door. The hotel is on the edge of the old town and not far from the railway station. There is a computer for guest use
