Situated midway between the old and new port areas this hotel is right on the beach. We picked it as a cheaper alternative to the bigger expensive hotel just across the road. Free parking outside although when everyone is at the beach you'll struggle to find a spot! Staff were friendly and helpful, the hotel is pretty much a 3... More

I was a bit afraid with some opinions readed here, but my feeling is that those not so good opinions were written before some builds and improvements done in the hotel few time ago. For me the hotel was quite good, with very nice, modernand clean aspect; location is wonderful, just in front of Getxo beach, between old town and... More

I stayed here with 2 friends in May and we had a great triple room with fantastic views. The room was light and comfortable and overall we thought the place wonderful and really convenient for getting into Bilbao and also the ferry terminal. This time however things didn't work out quite as well. It's still great value but I think... More

The bed is hard as a rock. The rooms are small, but adequate. They do show a some wear and tear and neglect. One of the wall lamps is burnt out. The mini refrigerator is hot inside, not cold. The safe does not work, and the shower drain backs up. The air conditioning only works well at night, when it... More

The hotel is very nice. The rooms are tidy, clean and comfortable and the staff is disposable and nice. The rooms are well equipped and with wifi for as many devices as you need. Furthermore there are two very good restaurants close to the hotel and Getxo its a very nice village.

Decided to take the opportunity for a short break on Bank Holiday. Read the reviews and was a bit worried. This was truly a nice experience. Arrived and the lady in reception was super nice.

The original 'high tech' concept was a bit odd and doomed to become dated. I seems like a lot of money must have been spent of fittings to fit that theme. The bathroom of my room look like something from an expensive boutique hotel, whereas the bedroom has 4 fold bunk beds in addition to the main bed (I was... More
