The hotel is within walking distance of the city. It is very nice, modern and cozy. You will need transport to visit some of the attractions of the old town, which is lovely, excellent restaurants and bars. For example, the beach of La Concha and El Monte Igueldo. The rooms are comfortable and clean, and have good air conditioning. The... More

We checked in on March 15th and stayed 2 nights. The room was comfortable but musty. This is hard for asthma sufferers as it precipitated an attack. Although management was very accommodating in trying to do something to dry the room, i had to use a mask to sleep so I wouldn't breathe in the mold. The next evening was... More

Our room was modern and clean, especially comfy bed. The food was great, the dining staff very friendly and helpful. However, I found reception a little difficult as the staff we experienced did not speak much English and personally we found the location a little too far from the Old Town, about 20-25 minutes. We enjoy walking but not so... More

This is a good business hotel. If you fly in via Bilbao it is even an excellent choice of hotel as the bus from the airport stops right outside the hotel. Fairly large rooms that are fresh and clean. Wifi worked without any problems. There is a lot of traffic around the hotel so if you like to sleep with... More

Great hotel, convenient location, 20 minute stroll to town, comfortable bed, large patio with great views, breakfast OK, bistro and bar very good and value for money, friendly staff. Very Spanish and no English bars, lots of tapas bars plus some good local restaurants. Looking forward to my next stay.....

My husband and I stayed here for three nights in January. We arrived late on a Friday night, having flown into Bilbao and taken the (very convenient) bus from the airport. The bus stops literally right outside the hotel, which was perfect for a late night arrival when you can't be bothered hailing a cab! Also, the reception is open... More

This Hotel was easy to find, immaculately clean and the room was lovely. However, as the most expensive accommodation I booked throughout my three week trip to several cities in Spain, some aspects need to be updated for travellers convenience. The Wifi system was archaic and difficult to access. When I enquired about improving the access I was told there... More

My husband and I stayed here on the eve of the San Sebastian Marathon. It is an impressive hotel with attentive staff. Excellently located for the start and finish of the marathon with it being a mere 800 metres away. Our room was spacious enough with a nice bathroom but it was infernally hot! We turned off the heating and... More
