5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

A great location on the Gran Via - 10 minutes walk to the Guggenheim and a leisurely 25 minutes to the Old Town. Public transportation is near if you don't want to walk.

The hotel pampered us with heated towel racks, fluffy robes and a great women’s travel kit with a nice selection of high end toiletries which we appreciated when Iberia lost our luggage.

As to the lost luggage, we were getting nowhere with the 800 number supplied by the airlines.
BUT the hotel has a wonderful resource in Esther who works in reception. She was
delightful, creative and tenacious. She had lots of phone numbers not available to passengers
and went out of her way track down the luggage and find out when it would be delivered
to the hotel. She was a wealth of information - Service with a smile and "above and beyond" what you usually get at “reception” ..

The breakfast buffet was abundant, varied and tasty.. something for everyone.

Modern rooms, conveniently located with a walking distance to the Guggenheim Museum. Really, no complains apart from the fact that tea/coffee making facilities were missing. Very kind and helpful staff, allowed us to leave our car in a car park for a bit longer with no problems.
All ok but somehow forgettable...?

I stayed here while attending a works Christmas night out between the 14th and 16th December 2012.
It cost around £25 euros in a taxi from the airport and the journey lasts about 20 minutes
The hotel is clean and modern looking with friendly, helpful reception staff.
The hotel is situated a 5-10 minute walk from the liveliest bars and about the same distance to Athletico Bilbao football ground.
The hotel is very good value for money in my eyes and I would stay here again if I return

This is a recently renovated hotel in the city centre of Bilbao.
If you are coming by bus from Bilbao Airport, it stops in front of the hotel. Very convenient.
The size of the room was fair enough. The facilities of the room was high quality.
The breakfast was delicous. Variety of choices, value for the money.
Bilbao is a very small city and this hotel is very close to everything. The museum, old city and the shopping area is within walking distance.
We went to San Sebastian from Bilbao by bus and the hotel is 5 mn walking distance to the bus terminal.
If you are looking for an hotel in the city centre of Bilbao without any special facilities, this is a very nice bed & breakfast hotel.

Service at Reception was great. Room was huge, very spacious. Bed was comfortable too. Location is a bit of a walk to the Guggenheim and definitely an even longer walk to the old town. Bilbao is absolutely beautiful though, so it wasn't a bother to me.

My only beef would be the bathroom - although there were two sinks available (huge plus!), there was very little counter space to put any of your own hygienic products. Also, the shower was a little stupid... there's no shower door and the person who designed this shower also didn't allow for much room for the water to rise without overflowing onto the floor... so I had to turn off the shower a few times to wait for the slow drain to do its job. Oy!

Otherwise, would recommend this hotel!

Dear Guest,
Muchas gracias for your opinion, in 2012 we made and effort renovating 100% the hotel, the rooms, restaurant, hall, the hotel has a modern and new design, and our location is optimal.
If you ever come back to Bilbao, we hope that you will choose the Nh Villa de Bilbao.
Best regards.

Went for a long weekend in October and were very impressed by both the hotel and Bilbao. Room was very smart and contemporary with large shower room. Breakfast was fantastic... even champagne which my wife took advantage of. Only problem was the first night I had the aircon too warm! The builders were in reception but no real problem. Staff were friendly and helpful. Location is great, 2 minutes along the elegant boulevard Gran Via to smart shops and 10 minutes through the fabulous park to the Guggenheim. 20 minutes to the 'old town', well worth the walk. Seek out the small street behind the hotel, off the Rodriguez Arias Kalea, which is full of both contemporary and classic Pintxos (Tabas) bars, 5 minutes from the hotel - THE place to be in the evening. Then stop off for a nightcap at the bar JAMIE directly opposite the hotel - great gin and tonics! The hotel is great value for money.

Room Tip: Inner rooms don't have a view but I suspect are quieter.
