We stayed on the 5th floor with one of the few balcony rooms overlooking the sea - great if you can get one of these. The hotel is pleasant, with a reading room with some books and games, and a good location, close to the beach. However, it is a long walk to the old city and restaurant area -... More

Hello, It is great to see you did enjoy your stay al Las Rocas Hotel, having good times at the beach, the city center... You are right when you say city center is not so close to the hotel, unless, normally, it does not take more than 12-15 minutes to get there, and is a nice promenade all along the... More

We were looking for a few nights chill-out after taking Brittany Ferries to Bilbao. What a great decision. Castro Urdiales is a delightful seaside town. Very Spanish. Fishing harbour. Great beach. Fresh seafood restaurants. Tapas Bars. Excellent hospitality and inexpensive. The Hotel is modern in design. Clean, functional, well run. No balconies. Parking in the street is inexpensive (4€ day).... More

Another one of those hotels you stop in when travelling from A to B and hope you've not made a mistake! You haven't. Set very close to good beach, it is surrounded by expensive residential homes and apartments. Castro Urdiales has presence and pride. Lovely promenade walk to old centre and 800 yr old church perched precariously at cliff edge.... More

This hotel is not on the beach and it is completely surrounded by hi-rise blocks of flats that do not appear on the hotel... More
