Bright room, very clean, modern shower, great value and very central location. We had a microwave and that worked fine to heat water for tea and coffee. we had a room for 4 and while it was not huge. more than adequate for a couple of nights in Bilbao. The other sleeping area was separated by sliding door fro added... More

I don't know why there were so many good reviews for this property. The room I had was small like a student dorm. There isn't even a kettle to make tea or coffee. The receptionist offers no information about how to get around or using wifi and couldn't wait to get rid of me. I definitely won't recommend this place... More

The location for this property is amazing. We booked a room with a balcony and you look straight out onto an historic pedestrianised street. Thankfully the room had floor to ceiling blackout curtains which meant we slept very well! You are within steps of lots of independent shops, bakeries, bars and restaurants. The Ribera market is very close which also... More

A bit chaotic organization of reception - there were no person at reception and by help of the residents I got in the house itself also it was middle of the day. Could imagine some problems for those arriving early or very late. The flat itself is quite spacious and well equipped (fridge, flat screen TV, shower, kettle to make... More

Great location in the old part of Bilbao -it's not a hotel, more a block of small apartments - the suite we had was at the back (as mentioned in other reviews this means not so much natural light) with large bedroom and small lounge. there are no cooking facilities apart from a fridge and microwave (plus iron+board available from...

The Casco Viejo is a fantastic location if you are staying in Bilbao and these apartments are an excellent option. They are simple and have only microwaves as cooking facilities. But if you plan to be there only a couple of nights, they do the trick. We stayed four nights and shopped from excellent local shops for simple evening meals.... More

We had a very good stay here and it was inexpensive and very well located, but there are a few things to think about if you are usually a hotel person. Firstly, these is little or no contact with the owners. We arrived on a Sunday and had a rushed and blustery check-in and that was it for four nights.... More

Not cheap for a budget traveller, but Bilbao isn't cheap in the summer. I'd come back if I can't find anything else cheaper and in such prime location. Design is fresh and vibrant, without being sickly. Simple and elegant. French windows lead to a pedestrianised street, although vehicles, especially road cleaners, do pass by. It can get a little noisy,... More
