This pension has half a building over seven storeys. I had a twin-bed room with a tiny bathroom, yet equipped with a small shower; hair dryer, shampoo and soap were provided. A beverage dispenser is available on the first floor. The receptionists were helpful and friendly, and the pension is only a five-minute walk to the bus terminal and to... More

I stayed here for one night - was travelling home the next morning. It's a really good location for travelling to the airport and just a short walk into the town. I didn't spend a lot of time in the single room as I headed out to the Guggenheim and then spent time out eating. The location is good, price... More

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.

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
