We arrived late - about 22:45 after flying from Heathrow - but all was good with the restaurant and excellent tapas (pintxos here) bar snacks being served in its own area. Wine list was good and good value. Rooms were a little small but well appointed. Service was excellent throughout. Vehicle entrance is past hotel and then turn right down... More

We stayed in this hotel- family, 2 kids. Our room had a lovely, large balcony overlooking the bay. The room was perhaps slightly small but the large balcony made up for it. Bathroom was nice and fairly large. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant was excellent value for money. The garden was very nice... More

If you are looking for a luxurious and relaxing hotel away from the hustle and bustle of Bilbao, this is a perfect choice. Good location for exploring Getxo, situated right on the promenade and about halfway between the old town and the marina. The hotel is tastefully and stylishly decorated throughout. Great bathroom with rainfall shower and lots of high... More

The hotel Embarcadero is very well located just next to the bay in Getxo. The personnel was friendly and the breakfast good. I am only rating this hotel with 3 points because apart from a nice location, there are a few glitches that do not justify in my eyes its 4 stars and the relatively high price. First of all,...

This hotel is beautiful decorated and food is served in a divine manner. It is paradise! I enjoyed a wonderful Sunday dinner there. The rooms and accommodations are awesome! The hotel services are very good and very professional.

This is a hotel located near the bay. An old house converted to a hotel with some internal modification. Due to this the passages are cramped and toilet are miniscule, comparable to airport toilets. This hotel claims to be 4 star property but besides excellent view there is no other thing worth commanding a high price. Staff is good and... More

Compared with recent reviewers, we had a delightful stay. We had unexpectedly hot and sunny weather for late September, swam in the sea off a nearby beach and had Room 11 with stunning views. The hotel is along an esplanade of quirky mansions, slightly Hollywood in their eclectic architecture. True, the modern furniture, more suited to a waiting room in... More

Overall a disappointing experience. The hotel has a great location beside the promenade, with a lovely roof terrace only available to residents. But it is totally overpriced for what it is. Our room was tiny, the lights did not work, the aircon was next to useless, the toiletries were not restocked over our 4-night stay. There was also no English... More

My husband and I recently stayed in the Hotel Embarcadero on our stay in Getxo. The hotel has an amazing exterior with a fabulous views of the port and marina. It is accessible to the town centre and the metro which is literally 5 mins away. The metro provides a great link to Bilboa for 3.30 euros return. You can't... More

The location is superb if you like a place with a view, far from the bustle of Bilbao and a sense of bourgeois history, this is after all where the very rich of Bilbao´s industrial revolution built their mansions, a curious mixture of British stately home and Basque rural arcadia. Only but is that the Ria gives a not so... More
