This hotel is an old 'palacio' but has a new wing attached to it with modern rooms facing the harbour and railway station of Santuce (a suburb of Bilbao) Very friendly staff and very good food. The hotel is situated next to the harbour and a beautiful boardwalk is guiding you to beaches, parcs and the famous Baskia bridge A... More

Like others, I'd booked into Palacio Oriol as my final night in Spain prier to catching the Brittany ferry from Bilbao to Portsmouth. A good move. Tired after an evening drive, dinner in the hotel's restaurant was superb. Excellent food, well-cooked & presented, friendly service & good value. My room was ok: quiet, clean, reasonably furnished, comfy bed, good A/C... More

This hotel needs updating - very tired and old fashioned without style. The one thing that does make it good is the very friendly staff. Considering the above I am very surprised that a night here can cost 25% more than centrally located modern well equipped hotels. The breakfast is not of a very high standard and is poorly presented.

Location was reasonable, and parking good at an extra charge 15 euros per day. Our room was very small, with a tiny window that you could look out of if you stood on a chair. Not ideal and quite claustrophobic. Glad it was only for one night. Breakfast was good and we decided to eat out for the evening meal.

Overall I was very impressed with the hotel, it was super convenient for us as we were taking a ferry the next day. We upgraded to a superior room for extra cost and it was very very nice, although the shower wouldn't hold temperature and the terrace wasn't particularly clean. Minor gripes though. The staff were very friendly, the reception... More

A five star hotel at four star prices. The staff are excellent, nothing is too much trouble and exceptionally helpful. The rooms are palatial as is the hotel. Food is excellent and extremely reasonably priced for the standard of the hotel. I cannot fault this hotel and cannot wait to return.
