Pension Arriaga or Arriaga Suites is a perfect place to stay in Bilbao. Very central, at Casco Vieja, many retail shops around, convinient for a short rest before you keep walking and discovering the city or short walk to sleep after a nice pintxho bar. Rooms are spacious, and in a refurbished building. Facilities work well. Clean. Decoration is tasty... More

I would most definitely recommend this apartment. We arrived at midnight and had pre-arranged late check-in which was easy to organise via email and we were met when we arrived as promised. The room was very spacious and had a separate living area which was a nice area to relax in. It was clean and comfortable, with good wardrobe space... More

Very good location. Clean apartment. Unfortunately wi-fi was not available in our bedroom or more correctly was available only in the corridor and from time to time in the living room. I am still not sure why we had two cups with tee bags inside if there was no kettle? Were we supposed to boil water in microwave oven? Even... 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.

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...
