If you are traveling through Bilbao, using the Termibus, you will not be able to beat this location. It's a three minute walk from the bus terminal. The price is reasonable, especially when you consider how expensive Bilbao can be. The staff is friendly. The rooms are clean. The wifi is free (though the quality can vary considerably depending on... More

The location is good; very easy to reach from the airport, by bus, for just 1.45 euros. It's opposite the stadium so of course it's ideal if you have come to see a match. It takes around 15 or 20 mins to walk to the Guggenheim or to the old town (so long as you know the way! Pick up... More

A big positive is that the hotel is in an excellent location next to the bus station and football ground. The rooms are very basic but kept nice and clean, however there are no facilities at the hotel not even tea/coffee making is available. The reception on arrival was pretty rude as we were 5 English males travelling to watch... More

This is a modest but clean hotel and an excellent option if you need take a bus from the central bus station early in the morning. Hotel does not serve breakfast. Welcome is really warm and attentive.

Location is very good and just next to express bus station and subway station. But decoration is old with not confortable bed. The bathroom fitting also no good because it is also old fitting with some... More

We spent one night at San Mames enroute from San Sebastian. The location right next to the bus station was perfect for our arrival from San Sebastian and to catch the bus to the airport. The Guggenheim is only about a 20 to 30 minute walk from the hotel. There are several bars and cafes very close by. The hotel... More

I stayed at San Mames just for the night. Their website makes it easy to make a reservation. No Frills. It's comfortable and clean. The room was at the back-side, so no problems with street noise. Just a 15 minute walk from the Guggenheim. During weekends, parking in the street is for free.

San Mames aka. San Mablon is fantastic. A deffinite feature of the place is the local bus shelter. You can sit here for hours and watch all the marvelous mablons walk past, a must see
