This was a standard modern chain hotel. Normally I would be looking for something with more character. However, I booked the night before and was after a convenient and affordable hotel with wifi and a bar! For 62 Euros this fit the bill. I am not proud of the fact that I only planned one night in Bilbao and it is clearly a place I would like to return to absorb the culture a bit more. However my sole purpose was to stop over a night to see the Guggenheim on my way from Barcelona to the ferry in Santander. This Ibis, ticked all the boxes. It was pouring rain the day I was in Bilbao. I discarded any options other than taxis. It was about 5 euros to the hotel; there is a cab stand right across the street from the hotel and it was about 5 euros to the Guggenhiem and then back. I had a lovely hot shower on my return; enjoyed some drinks in the hotel bar and had a lovely stew in the restaurant before I got a good nights sleep and took a cab for about 6 euros to the bus station to take the bust to Santander to catch a ferry.
