Lovely staff and nice rooms, each with its own laptop computer and strangely an exercise bike! The pintxos (Basque for tapas) next door in the café bar are excellent. The Tamarises restaurant next door and upstairs is Michelin star quality and not cheap. This hotels "claim to fame" was that the England football team stayed here during the 1984 World... More

At the end of May I stayed for one night at High Tech Tamarises, aka Petit Palace. Despite its name and pseudoname the hotel is neither High Tech nor Petit Palace. Has nothing to do with either. Having a Dell laptop in the room does not make the hotel High Tech, especially when the WiFi is limited in number of... More

I 'accidently' booked this hotel thinking I was booking a 'sister?' one in Bilbao old town. However, I got to enjoy an area of 'Bilbao' I would not have seen or known existed. The area is very 'ritzy' with amazing homes that look like small castles! It is only 20 mins from Bilbao on the metro, a lovely 10 min... More

The sea view rooms are worth the extra - great view right over the beach. Rooms very comfortable and modern with free Wi-Fi. Friendly staff but breakfasts not great for a 4-star hotel. In Summer you could stay here for the beach and still visit the city centre easily - 5 minutes walk to Metro Neguri then 20 minutes into... More

The room was shockingly small with little to no window light/ventilation. Apparently, there are better rooms but I can only go by what I saw. I wish there was availability to upgrade my room! My room was called an executive room - hardly. The staff were fantastic and helpful and did everything they could to ensure we had a good... More

Stayed here for a couple of days whilst visiting friends in Bilbao, hoping to spend a couple of days on the beach - alas the weather wasn't kind to us..! Nevertheless it's a nice area of the town, and there are a few bars and restaurants down on the waterfront marina if you don't fancy the trip into the city.... More

We should have paid the extra 30 euros for the sea view rooms. But as it was, I felt we were on the high end for what it was worth. Instead we got a closet with no view. I poked my head in the sea view rooms and immediately regretted it, because I now felt envy. Pay the extra money... More

We spent a night there and booked a sea-front room based on the other tripadvisor entries. If you only want to sleep in this place, read some mails and wake up with the sea, the place is OK. But if you wanted to sit on the balcony, you would have no chair for that, you would see the shoddy, run-down... More

I wish we had booked a sea view, but from a very dowdy extremity the hotel is decorated inside to a very high standard. Space is limited but very airy breakfast room with good variety of hot and cold dishes. We booked the apartment for 4 adults but wished the room was larger and the bunk beds were not quite... More
