5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My wife and I stayed here for a conference, and had a great stay. The restaurant downstairs (Aizian) is excellent, and the rooms are very comfortable. The hotel is conveniently located next to the Euskalduna conference center, and a 5-10 minute alk from the Guggenheim. The front desk personnel are very helpful. The breakfast buffet is also excellent. I would... More

Drop dead gorgeous hotel. It's got a lovely pool, sauna and gym. Lovely, pleasant and helpful reception staff, with good English and room service staff that are well meaning though not always great English speakers so be prepared for a funny exchange while you communicate your order. Rooms have amazing views, design is outstanding, even if sometimes more style than... More

This hotel has excellent location and service! Though we booked a standard room, they gave us a better room with a very beautiful view! We had 10 Euro voucher from hotel booking and tasted delicious Basque wine - Txakoli. There is a big shopping center nearby and you can just have a small walk to Guggenheim Museum. There is also...

Stayed here for an over night before getting a flight back to UK. All staff were excellent, very polite and friendly. The hotel is situated well for a walk along the river to the Guggenheim and back through the park.

The only reason this place did not get five stars is the relative weakness of its wi-fi. The room and staff were lovely and the gym quite adequate for a hotel gym. A five-minute walk to the Guggenheim completes the picture.

Stayed here on a stop over on route to Biarritz, France. Hotel is very nice and convenient to the airport. Rooms are clean and spacious, nice bar and a v small but welcoming little pool. Good location for Guiggenham museum with a nice pedestrian walk along the river bank. Shopping centre across the road and tram stop right outside. Would... More

We only spent 1 night in Bilbao before ending our trip. This hotel seems to have a 5 star rating but overall I would say it's more 4 star. The check-in process was a bit slow (despite we were lucky to get a room at 12nn!). Location - pretty central in the modern part of Bilbao - 10mins walk from... More

Stayed 3 nights with family - 2 rooms, both on the 10th floor with fabulous views from terraces over the adjacent park. Met and exceeded our expectations in almost every dimension. A few quirks noted by previous reviewers (e.g.only 1 bathrobe in a double room etc.) However restaurant experience was disappointing with service that was lackadaisical at best. Breakfast was...

Let me first say that I loved our room. It was big, with a huge covered terrace facing a beautiful park and well equipped. I would certainly be happy to book a similar premium room during my next visit to Bilbao. The hotel has a lovely heated swimming pool which we tremendously enjoyed when it was not overcrowded. The hotel... More

We stayed there just for one night, but this stay left only the good impressions. Though the room was a bit "used", it was clean and functional. But the greatest thing about our room was the view over the river. Simply amazing! If you book the room via the official website you get the voucher for 10 EUR which you... More
