We stayed twice at the Silken Amara Plaza in July, eight days total. We had a positive experience and would stay there again. The property is fairly new and generally well maintained. We loved the location, a nice neighborhood a 20-minute walk to the old quarter and next to the bus station, where you can catch a bus to Bilbao... More

It was a very confortable start to drive the rented car into an underground garage and to take the lift directly to the reception. The reception staff was very friendly. All the members of the reception staff during our three days´ stay were friendly and the information we got for our sight seeing trips was very appreciated. The room was... More

Arriving from Bilbao Airport, the bus pulls up 20m from hotel which is great. The hotel is very clean - we stayed on the 8th floor - the carpet outside the rooms looked and smelt brand new. The rooms are fairly small but cosy (good sized bathroom though). Its a 20-25min stroll into old town - my wife and I... More

Clean, well-appointed rooms and friendly staff made this a good choice. generous breakfast buffet. Located twenty minute walk from old town, there is also a bus stop and taxi rank just outside hotel. Good value for money.

Hotel is small but cozy. Sadly I stayed just overnight. I loved breakfast. Chorizo was the best. Free wifi. Room was small but enough for 2 people. Restroom provided with hot water, shampoo and soap. Not much interaction with hotel staff except for the ones at breakfast who were very accommodating. I would recommend this hotel if anybody asks.

This hotel was more than I expected. The beds and pillows were very very nice. There was a lot of storage for our clothes and suitcases plus a fridge for our wine. The staff was exceptional. They were very nice, accommodating, and helpful. There was a bus stop outside the hotel which led to the old town in 10 minutes.... More

Hotel is a 20 minutes walk to nearest Beach. The staff is excellent at hotel, coffee shop, restaurant, bar, front desk, every where. It shouldn't advertise air condition, the common areas are ok, the rooms air condition is controlled by hotel, blows "out side air". Rooms are hot since temperature was already in the 20's Celsius. Hotel besides bus stop,... More
