Our 2 night, 3 day stay in wonderful Bilbao prior to sailing back to the UK after a month in Spain. Our short journey to Bilbao following 3 nights in San Sebastian, took us through a beautiful part of Northern Spain. For once in the centre of a Spanish city, the sat nav brought us straight to the hotel. Hotel... More

Running with no reservation because of Bilbao's Festival, Hotel Abando no just had rooms available, they also had amazing rates, extraordinary customer attention, advise to visit places around, and wonderful people working as a team!

Great hotel in the heart of Bilbao. Surrounded by cafes, restaurants and all the necessary amenities. If you are a shopper Zara, Mango, Corte Ingles are a stones throw away. The Guggenheim Museum is within an easy walking distance as is el Casco Viejo, which is the hub of Bilbao ... Only a walk across the river. The hotel room... More

It is a nice hotel, clean rooms and a very good breakfast. There many options of breads, juices, pastry, coffee, yogurt, milk and cheese on breakfast. The location is great, a walk distance to main city attractions and good restaurants. The service and rooms are adequate to a four star hotel. I would stay there again.

Good location, clean, comfy, modern, good price, close to restaurants and shops. We didn't even use public transit once because we just walked everywhere. The only negative thing I can say about this hotel is that the gym is only open from 10 am - 9 pm! But I would highly recommend this hotel!

This is a great Hotel in the centre of Bilbao. It is easy to reach from the Airport, and parking adjacent. Parking was €18/night which I checked is standard. We didn't eat there, so I can't rate that. I read a few reviews about the gentleman on reception, not very friendly, and I agree, but this is not important to... More

Modern 4 star hotel with spacious rooms and larger bathrooms located ideally for visiting or business in Bilbao. Equidistant from all attractions in Bilbao. Less than 15 mins walk to old town, new town, Guggenheim etc. Surrounded by restaurants and shops, and well connected by bus, metro, tram or train, this is a hotel I would definitely recommend.

Central location, refurbished rooms, close to good restaurants and the old town. 15 minutes walk from Guggenheim. Close to El Corte Ingles. Offers breakfast at 12 eyros but you can find good simple breakfasts at 3-5 euros close by just around the corner.
