“Nice functional hotel in the city center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Nice functional hotel in the city center. Rooms are spacious and everything looks very new. I would only complain about the toilet light, which is too soft. Dinner options in the hotel are limited, particularly from Monday to Wednesday (the main restaurant is closed, so you can only have a limited selection of dishes in the bar, the same limited selection that it is available for the room service). However, there are many tapas bars and restaurants in the nearby Moyua neighborhood (e.g. in calle Diputación), so that is not a big issue.

The location is very central, just a few blocks away from the underground, main city attractions and the airport bus stop. Modern design, rooms big, impeccably clean and very quiet. Staff at the reception multilingual and very friendly. Breakfast could be better, but it can be easily skipped - there is plenty of coffee shops nearby. By all means a very pleasant stay.

For those who are looking for comfort and good location it is the perfect choice.
We stayed 3 nights and got a spacious and very clean and comfortable room.
The receptionist was very helpful and you really feel great staying there.

Room Tip: book or ask for a Superior room.

Great location, from the gate, turn right and go walking straight and within no time you will reach the Guggenheim meseum. Comfortable room, very friendly staff. No great facilities - the gym too small and the machines Ok...most had some problem. The complimentary breakfast was no lavish spread but good stuff. The dining hall is well designed with a big TV, books on the shelf, cozy sofas and the same hall also having two desktops with internet. Some great eateries all around the hotel...the Yok Buffet and the Krunch are worth a try. The reception staff speak english and were a friendly lot. If u are checking out very early in the morning, get surprised by a free cup of coffee with some cakes and biscuits at the reception counter.

We stayed for 3 nights in November. Good location, about 15 minute walk from the Old Town. Didn't bother with eating in the hotel as there are loads of tapas bars and a couple of coffee shops round the corner. Better than paying 15 euro for breakfast

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Travelled with 3 friends to Bilbao mid November 2012 and this hotel was perfect for the trip. The location is very central and the Guggenheim, old town, Funicular de Artxanda and San Mames stadium are all only a short walk away. The rooms were modern, spacious and extremely clean but lacked character. The hotel staff were very efficient. Ideal for a group of lads on a long weekend or a business trip but I think I would look elsewhere if travelling with the family.

The hotel is very well situated in the middle of Bilbao, near shops and restaurants and only a 10 minute walk to the Guggenheim. The rooms are modern, spacious and spotlessly clean. The reception staff all speak English and are very helpful.
