We booked this hotel because it was near the Guggenheim, the reason for our visit. The hotel itself is mildly startling, ultra-modern and cavernous. The rooms are very good indeed, with a lovely modern décor and windows that open. The bathroom, all in marble, is big and looks huge. The restaurant and bar are both good and interesting, and the...

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The room was accommodating and the bathroom was very nice with shower and tub. There is also a SPA and outdoor pool which we did not use. It is about 10+ minute walk along to river to the Guggenheim. It is close to a very nice park. The breakfast buffet was very nice.... More

Strategically located near the center of the town, this hotel is convenient to all the amenities. Located across the atreet from the shopping center on one side and large park on the other, in the vicinity of the river on the third side, the hotel is very good in providing comfort to even most demanding guests. The only negative thing... More

Beautiful hotel in the newer part of Bilbao. Very comfortable,large room with big bathroom and great views. Upscale linens, amenities and nice pool/fitness area. very convenient to Guggenheim, Fine Arts and Old town via Euskotram. Booked well in advance so was also an excellent value. Staff were efficient but cold.

Was a very flash place when built but rooms showing a few signs of wear and tear. Ideal for somewhere reasonable to stay whilst visiting Bilbao. Obviously a busy business hotel with conferences taking place both nights we stayed.

Lovely hotel with beautiful views. Walk along the river to the stunning Guggenheim museum and old town. I have travelled extensively and without a trip to this "delicious" city, I would have been so much poorer! Underground system superb.

Very modern, clean and wonderful hotel! The staff at the front desk were very, very nice and helpful and sweet! The rooms were beautifully decorated and appointed. Bilbao was a great city and the residents want you to explore. The bathroom was gorgeous and the shower was just awesome after a long day of walking. If I go back, this... More

We made the reservation through Booking.com and when we arrived were told that we had been upgraded to a wonderful 9th floor suite with a huge covered balcony looking over the city. The staff was great.
