“Hidden Jewel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Hidden in the green and wonderful mountains around Bilbao, in the small village of Andra Mari, this rural hotel is really a special experience. We were warmly welcomed by the charming owner including a welcome drink and a lot information about Bilbao and the natural reserve of Urdaibai (a real beautiful spot, with a large path network). The attention for the details is perfect: our room (we had the junior suite) was not only huge and with a 5 stars bathroom but it was also furnished with an unforgettable (and feminine, I suppose) taste and attention for the colors. By the way, all the hotel has a fresh odor of flowers and love. At the end of our stay (unfortunately of only one night) we have received also a bottle of local wine. Briefly, a fabulous experience.

Be aware: unless you like pork's fried fat don't take the "manitas" at the restaurant (but al the rest was nice eat)!

Hotel Katxi is really lovely , and a good place to stay if visiting Bilbao.We stayed there for one night last summer , after a day in Bilbao.Unfortunately the restaurant was shut the night we were there, and we had not received the email telling us this before we left home some days previously.In such cases it is probably best to eat in Bilbao first! Miriam the owner is charming and very hospitable. The hotel itself is in the village of Morga , about half an hour from Bilbao, but another world - very Spanish and no tourists! Miriam was so upset that we didnt know about the restaurant being closed that she upgraded our room.It was huge ,beautiful , with Moorish furnishings and a gauze curtain dividing the bed area from the rest of the room. The ensuite bathroom was as well appointed with robes, towels and classy toiletries as any 5 star establishment.I had the best nights sleep in ages ! Breakfast the next day was in an adjoining bar, again very Spanish. The Basque country is wonderful, and we would have loved to explore it further.If we ever do , we know where we will be staying !

This hotel is about an hour out of Bilbao in the Basque countryside, with the opportunity of some really good touring to national parks, coast, and Guernica. The hotel itself provides really stylish, comfortable accommodation, with good views (as least in the 'superior' rooms) including a comfortable lounge and terrace and a fantastic level of service - turndown service, robes and slippers, leaving gift etc. The only slight surprise - to non-Spaniards at least - is that breakfast is not served in the hotel itself, but in the bar of the restaurant building. More generally, unless you want to drive out for dinner, the restaurant of the same name is pretty good ( very fresh, tasty fish, home cooking) but doesn't quite come up to the standard of the hotel in sophistication. But - hey - that's a small price to pay for being in such a beautiful place, in a small village, and a very long way from any international tourists.
