“Great base in central Bilbao”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Very much a business hotel, but a great location for all that Bilbao has to offer. Shares the building with a casino, reception is on second floor, so rather anonymous lobby. Contemporary styled big bedroom and bathroom, underground car park reasonably priced. Close to Grand Via and El Corte Ingles department store, Calle Ledesma for tapas bars and relocated Tourist Office on Plaza Circular.

This hotel is just a short walk from a bridge to the old town and in a very good position. It is a pleasant walk along the river to the Guggenheim. The hotel is spotless and attractive and our room had the most comfortable extra wide bed. The bathroom was very smart and had good toiletries. Our air conditioning was not working but the room wasn't too warm so we put up with that and opened a window. The only disappointment was an empty, unmanned bar area so although we could no doubt have ordered a drink, we would have felt lonely in such a quiet room. Overall the hotel Is great with pleasant, helpful staff and it is excellent value given its quality and location. We had a great two nights in Bilbao.

We chose this hotel as it was a good price and close to most parts of the city; the Guggenheim, the old town and the city centre. It was very modern, minimal and clean with a spacious room and bathroom and great shower! There was an amazing scent that was very slight and was being passed through the air conditioning that was just amazing. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms and hallways were very quiet so it was perfect. There was only a light sheet on the bed, but there was a blanket in the wardrobe if needed. Would definitely stay here again if in Bilbao

The Coliseum hotel is endowed with spacious, modern and comfortable rooms (they are actually better than they look on internet!) as well as a pleasant bathroom. The acoustic isolation is excellent. Unlike many hotels in the same official category (which are often impersonal or old-styled), it fully deserves its four stars. Good value for money.

Very nice well located hotel with pleasant staff who speak good English. It’s close to the stores and not far from the river and old town. Good sized rooms and good bathrooms. The shower was the best we had in Spain. A nice bar area with a courtyard. A well priced and as we booked through the hotel website we got a free mini bar.
