Located by the river 20 minutes walk from the old town .Nicely decorated spacious rooms with free wifi . The breakfast was really good with a lot to choose from. Some noise from the nearby bus terminal,but not too disturbing.

Actually stayed in 2013, but found our old holiday itinerary and decided to leave a note. Fantastic room, lucky we were on a fairly high floor as the lower rooms must be bothered by the traffic as there is a major bus / coach drop off point which was quite busy from early in the morning to late at night....

Our surprise was bus from Bilbao arrived in heavy rain at the hotel (bus terminal). We planned to travel from Bilbao by train but all Bilbao hotel staff recommended bus which is three times faster than train. We (old couple)walked to the old town, main attraction, and to the beach for 2 days through 2 paralleled shopping streets, but at... More

We went during the firework festival. So very busy town. Handy location to shops, restaurant etc. lovely walk to town centre . Took bus as well after long day walk along beach. Found the hotel room small, expensive but adequate. Did not eat in hotel.

Stayed for two nights with my wife after holidaying in Urrugne, France. The drive took approx. one hour on normal roads. On arrival we parked in the hotel's underground car park, cost €18.5 per night. The double room was reasonably spacious, nice bathroom with shower over bath. The room overlooked the main bus station and I was worried that there... More

Nice clean hotel, nice room, nice breakfast, it just average for an average price, you pay extra for parking which is a downside. Location is nice next to the river and it a nice walk in to town by the river or along the shops.

We spent one night here in a triple room. Situated next to the bus station, which was very handy as we arrived by bus. Reception staff were professional and friendly, there was no delay despite it being very busy. Our room was comfortable and clean. We had a good view overlooking a typical Spanish roundabout with a pretty fountain which... More

We reached the Silken Amara from 5 hour bus ride from Madrid. You can walk from the bus dropoff point right into the lobby of the Amara. Very friendly front desk staff, corteous and efficient check in. The lobby area and the rooms look like recent renovation, no wear and tear signs at all. Loved the glass shower wall, you... More
