This hotel is situated centrally, and leaves the major sight seeing areas within easy walking distance. There is a small park and restaurant filled street very close. The hotel is business class, and has all the typical amenities. The staff is very personable. The rooms are decently appointed, and fairly large. We had a double with 2 beds, and there...

The Hotel Abando is centrally located for all your tourist requirements. It is clean and the staff is accommodating and friendly. The breakfast buffet is great and a good start for your day. The hotel is only a short walk from the museums, shopping, and river walk. The only downside is that the rooms are noisy to all traffic in...

Great location with lots of places to eat nearby, including terrific Cafe Iruna a few doors down which often makes on the top ten lists for Bilbao restaurants. A corner shop a few doors down the other to stock up on wine and nibbles for in the room. A moment from the metro and a ten minute walk into the...

We chose this hotel because it is centrally located (you can easily walk to the Guggenheim) and had car parking. BTW the underground car park is the next opening after the front of the hotel. Just press the button and tell them who you are. It was E19 per night. Really close to the underground and a steet nearby which...

I stayed in the hotel for a business trip and enjoyed my stay very much, it is located right in the city centre in a very lively area full of bars, restaurants and shops. 2 minutes walking from the metro. The breakfast is very good ( no veggies though) and the staff is nice. According to what I see in...

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...

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
