I booked a room here in the very last minute because the rate was good and the location was what I wanted. I am afraid the pictures were much nicer than the reality. I got a very small and noisy room, with a good collection of scratched furniture and stained covers. The internet connection didn't work the first day, and the second did do much better because the signal was very weak, so it typically took me ten minutes to get the list of email in my inbox. Not good for a Hi Tech hotel, according to their website.
Pros: decent breakfast, smiling service and good location if you want to stay in the old city center (casco viejo). But, as Bilbao is really small, you are always in walking distance here...
