We traveled to Bilbao with a group of five. We had a great stay! Fernando's suggestions were timely and spot on. I would recommend this to anyone traveling. Great value and location. Speaks great Spanish and English!

I spent one night here. It is a very short walk from el Casco Viejo and within easy reach of the main attractions. The room was well equiped, if not luxurious. Good bathroom, TV, heating. I believe there was a mini-bar. Reception was helpful.

I stayed for 3 nights. The staff were friendly and very helpful which added to the hotel's special character. The hotel is in a very convenient location - near the old town, the railway stations, the tourism office and the modern town with its excellent shopping streets. The hotel was very clean and very quiet. It is situated on a... More

Looking for an inexpensive, but really good accommodation in Bilbao? Here it is! Central. Really inexpensive. And very clean. We stayed here for 3 nights and would return here anytime. Reception's open 24 hours. And very friendly and helpful. There's free WiFi. TV's "only" in Spanish and Basque. But you're not in Bilbao to waste your time watching TV, aren't... More

My wife and I stayed here on a Saturday night for a quick stop in Bilbao. Both the staff spoke very good English and were extremely helpful and accommodating. We asked for a quiet room and got one off the street but that was in February. But the place is on what is more of a pedestrian walkway than a... More

We only stayed one night but enjoyed the location; across the bridge from the old town. Rooms very clean, good wifi. I left my Dr. Dre headphones behind and when i emailed the hostal, they replied immediately and awaited my arrival. Thank you!

This lovely accommodation was an "Authors Pick" in the Cadogan Guides to Bilbao and The Basque Lands (pg 149, 5th ed,2012). Easily found if you are coming from Bilbao airport, as you can take the airport bus to the end of the line (Termibus Station) and from that station take the metro (San Memes) 3 stops to Abando metro, which...

This was a wonderful budget hotel. Our room was comfortable and clean. The location is perfect - very near the tram that goes along the river to the Guggenheim, or in walking distance if you like to walk. Also walking distance from the nightlife on the other side of the river, where all the pintxos bars are. There are wonderful... More

Why spend a great deal of money if you are never in the hotel. We paid less than £50 for a double room with shower. The hotel was clean but the location cannot be beaten. It is on a small street and as expected there was a little street noise at night so we asked for a quiet room at... More

The Begona is a traveler's delight. Centrally located close to mass transit, restaurants, bars, culture and the sheer beauty of Bilbao. We spent three nights in this clean, cozy pension where the staff were spot on with recommendations and service. The other guests all had a friendly vibe and it felt more like hanging out with friends than staying in... More
