This was our first trip to Bilbao. The hotel itself was clean and smart. The bathroom was well stocked with soaps etc. The wifi was free and generally reliable. . No issues of any note. Great location to explore Bilbao

If I have to say something about this hotel in one word, it is "overvalued" hotel. I dont' know that to what is based the quality of hotel rating and it stars. Service was very poor, staff was unkindly and rooms were worn. It was great that the hotel is located in the city centrum and there was a lot... More

We stayed here one night. The hotel is very central to all sights. The reception is new but the rooms needs to be renovated especially the bathroom as the paint was peeling from the wall. The beds are hard which was gone for us. Breakfast was very busy with a long q but the choice was good. Overall ok but... More

Hotel seemed sooo nice When We First saw The lobby. But The rooms Are very old and They Dont smell nice. Although The rooms Are clean Internet connection is very bad, We cant get connected correctly and We loose The connection All The time . Hotel is located in The city center. I Dont recommend it.

Those mattress were really uncomfortable, 2 single beds were placed together instead of one piece double bed.I asked for a crib for my baby, the mattress was really old and bulgy. He kept rolling from side to side. Toilets were too clean neither, we found rest of hair as soon as we went inside

Centrally situated hotel; easy to reach from airport by bus; Metro station nearby. Breakfast quite expensive --> I recommend to have breakfast in one of the nearby bars or cafés. Not so good: they carged my credit card in advance (4 month)

The hotel's location, friendly staff, parking (although restricted), decent size rooms and facilities nade it a great place to use for visiting and exploring Bilbao. Yes, some of the room's decor might be 'tired', but the bedlinen was new and clean, along with the bathroom and bedroom. Would definitely use again if we come back.

The Ercilla Hotel has a great location in the center of Bilbao. You can walk everywhere and there is a lot to see. I had two different rooms. I moved because the wifi did not reach my room. I could stand in the hall by the elevators or sit in the lobby to get a connection. No problem in the... More
