After 10 hours on the road, this hotel was a very welcome surprise. At just €60 for a large triple room and another €12 for secure underground parking, we felt this was good value for a vibrant city. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, and did their best to accommodate our requests. The hotel is generally very stylish and had a warm, welcoming feel.
The room was spacious, with comfortable beds and clean, modern decor. Free Wifi was a nice bonus. As others have mentioned, the bus to the town goes from right outside the hotel (numbers 40 and 77) for just €1.25, or approx 15-20 minute walk. Guggenheim museum is approx 30-35 min walk, or a approx €10 taxi ride.
Although the hotel's restaurant has been described as a "works canteen" (which I wouldn't disagree on), this didn't really bother us. However, we were disappointed that our main meal arrived 10 minutes apart (for just two people) and the one that arrived last was not quite what had been ordered. So this was a bit on the sloppy side and didn't make for a relaxing meal.
We'd be very happy to stay here again.
