The front desk staff were wonderful and accommodating. However, upon entering the room there was a stale/dirty smell. We noticed that there were burn marks on the edge of the night tables and assumed that the odour was due to smoking (it was listed as a non-smoking room). When we returned from a walk we realized that the carpets were... More

This hotel is ideally located in Bilbao a short walk to all the major attractions and very good adjacent restaurants. There is an underground garage for parking essential in Bilbao. A very comfortable room and bed. All that is needed for a short stay in a lovely city

After a week in Santander we booked in here for our last night so we were close to the airport. We were on the 7th floor & the rooms had been refurbished & were excellent. Each room (there were 10 of us travelling together so got to see 5 rooms!) had wallpaper with different scenes of the city & a... More

The location of the Abando Hotel could’t be better. I spent 8 nights at this hotel and was very happy here. Personnel at the front desk are very nice and helpful I had booked the first five nights on my own and had room 704 on the top floor away from the elevators and very quiet. It was good size... More

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.
