I had a small room with a small balcony overlooking a very quiet street. It was a short walk to the old city, with the tram that takes you to the Guggenheim and other parts of town, and not much longer walk in the opposite direction to the heart of the city. The area between the hotel and downtown has... More

Liked that it was in a quiet area but yet near the old town as so often in Spain hotels can be facing onto noisy streets. The male staff member was very welcoming and genuinely friendly.Room was nice and good value for money.

This hotel is somewhat basic. It's listed as a 2-star hotel in Bilbao tourism literature and I struggled to see what features would be missing for it to be downgraded to 1-star. I guess reserved car parking and a passenger lift must help (as we managed to pick other hotels without either later on our trip). The area around the... More

If you are travelling on a budget this is excellent value for money. Its not the Ritz but hey at the price its great value. The dodgy area is right of the hotel but no no need to walk that way where the old town is 10 minutes walk way. I must say the hall ways with the auto lighting... More

Choose this hotel because of the budget. It is located in a quiet neighbourhood, and there is not much happening here in nighttime, if you are looking for bard, restaurants and so on. Short distance to the tram, a 5 min walk across the river. The rooms are a bit tacky. Good bathroom and clean bathroom, men the other room... More

This hotel is cheap but not cheerfull. The decor is horrible with fluorescent uplighting in all of the hallways which make it look like a brothel. the floors are stained and dirty and we had a spotlight hanging out of the wall in our room aiming at the bed. Wierd overall hotel. Area is a gypsy area of the city.... More

I should have had a proper read of the reviews before booking this hotel. We hopped off he train at Zabalburu station and decided to walk to the hotel. Our thoughts were 'wow - Bilbao is really seedy' - just turns out that this hotel is located in the seedy part of Bilbao. It's true that it is a very... More

Really good value for the money you pay. It had everything you need - double bed, ensuite bathroom, air conditioning, free wifi, tv, and printing facilities. The whole place was relatively quiet , the room was clean, and the staff were very friendly and spoke pretty good English. The only downside was the area. It is on the edge of... More

We stayed in this hotel 3 nights. Comparing with the other budget hotels in the region (we stayed in 2 more), I think Bibli should be cheaper, especially as there is no breakfast. At first we were given a room, that was smelling of cigarettes so bad - our eyes were literally hurting! We asked for another room and got... More

Hotel Bilbi in Bilbao is a great-value budget hotel. The room was very comfortable and we had a great night's sleep. It was small and simple with a nice bathroom, comfortable bed and pleasant room temperature. The staff were extremely helpful and gave good advice on how to make the most of our short stay in Bilbao. They spoke excellent... More
