“FUNKY BASIC HOTEL, GREAT LOCATION”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

This hotel is in a FANTASTIC location - a short but beautiful walk to the centre of town. The hotel itself and its rooms are small, modern, clean and functional. Very helpful front desk staff. Wonderful value for money. We stayed just one night to see the museum - the hotel was exactly what we needed.

Room Tip: The rooms are small but very modern and clean - even in the basic room type you won't go wrong.

This hotel is perfectly located to enjoy the sights and sounds of Spain. It is right on the river if you want to take a beautiful walk or run around major tourist attractions. It is also within a 10 minute walk of the old square surrounded by great places to shop and eat. The area reminded me a lot of Amsterdam and Copenhagen. The hotel staff speaks English. The breakfast was excellent. When you venture out, it might be important to have an interpreter handy. Most cab drivers do not speak English.

I stayed at the hesperia this past weekend and it was an absolute joy (and a steal at only about £45 a night). We had a large room on the 6th floor with a large bathroom with separate sink area with 2 sinks, no river view but we did have a good view up the hill out back. 5 minutes walk to the Guggenheim, just over the bridge from the very convenient tram which goes to the old town and a 15 minute walk to the old town. It was also a few minutes walk from the funicular where you can get a great view of the city. There is also a supermarket next to the funicular entrance and a number of bars selling pintxos in the area. The staff were very friendly and helpful too. I'll def be back to Bilbao as I loved the city and when I do I'll be staying here again.

We were visiting Bilbao in January 2013 for the Botero exhibition and needed somewhere to sleep - not too expensive and with a good location for the museums, the shops (the sales were on and bargains were to be had) and the old town for the great pinxos.
Luckily, and great timing, I received an offer for a reduced rate which I took immediately. I booked a junior suite with views across the river to the Guggenheim with breakfast included.
The room was a good size - spotlessly clean - and very modern as you would expect, with a sort of overhanging viewing/sitting area with its strategically placed chair and footstool and views across the river to the Guggenheim and the city. On returning to the hotel with some friends after a night out we were all able to sit comfortably in this area to enjoy the view with a nightcap. A real plus.
The bed was comfortable. And there was a nespresso style coffee machine in the room fully equipped with capsules etc. The bathroom was very modern and very nice.
Breakfast was good, although one of the coffee machines was out of action which meant forming a queue for coffee (something I hate).
The staff were helpful and polite. And the hotel has it's own parking (albeit a little expensive, but very convenient in the rain !).
I would, without hesitation, recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Get one of the river/guggenheim facing rooms if you can.

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel I found the staff very helpful and nice. The staff went out of their way to answer any questions I had and always had good recommendations about where to eat. The location of the hotel is excellent a short walk from all the good Pinxos bars and easy access to all the sights such as the Plaza Nueva and Guggenheim museum and also the bus station is easy to access by using the tram. The room was spacious and comfortable and offered many good channels on the TV.

We stayed at this four star hotel in July and really loved it. We had an enormous suite with a fantastic terrace offering a spectacular view to the river and the Guggenheim museum. The staff members were really friendly and willing to help. If I am ever in Bilbao again I’ll definitely choose this hotel for its gorgeous terrace!
