“Just OK - truly nothing to write home about”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The pictures of the rooms are truly deceiving however the location is spot on if you want to be across from the Guggenheim. The room was small and uninviting and the decor was just the same. The staff is great, they try to help in whatever way they can but its just the overall being of the hotel that 's wrong - if you can swing the cost I would go to the Gran Hotel Domaine up the block - buffet breakfast on Sunday was just wonderful there.

I just came back from a wonderful weekend in Bilbao, an incredible city to visit.
the location of the hotel is terrific, literally 3 minutes' walk from the Guggenheim, and with quite a few nice places close by.
kind and attentive staff, comfortable rooms, rich breakfast in the morning.
should I go back to Bilbao, I would stay there again for sure!

Room Tip: if possible, a room overlooking the Guggenheim would be a dream...

I've had experience of boutique hotels before (Madrid, particularly, was a low-point). But from the website of Hotel Miro, and the reviews, it seemed worth taking a chance again.

This hotel was excellent in every respect. The staff and their helpfulness from check-in to departure was top notch. The room and facilties were also brilliant. The decor and style were attractive, but not in-your-face as with other trendy places you might find yourself in.

Very well located for the Guggenheim and other art galleries. Bilbao is an attractive city, full of surprises, and very welcoming. I would highly recommend using Miro as a base. Should I return to Bilbao, I will re-book without a moment's hesitation

Room Tip: If view matters, a Guggenheim facing room might be worth a punt. If you are staying weekends, entry...

This was a fancier hotel than we would normally stay in, but thought we'd splash out since we only came to Bilbao for one day to see the Guggenheim. Fantastic location. We stayed in a deluxe room which had a view of the museum. Oblique view, but still cool! Big, comfortable and clean room. Friendly staff. Recommended!

Good location, easy to and fro the airport, clean, quiet and modern. we had the standard room which was quite adequate. The lounge for guests with coffee and drinks was a nice surprising addition. Right across from the Guggenheim and near the tram stop. Around the corner from some nice, neighborhood type cafe/restaurants.
