This is a very quaint and small "hotel" from what I understand it's one floor of rooms, some face the inner courtyard and others have a view of the river. The rooms are small but clean, the noise does carry In the rooms facing the courtyard, mainly the neighbors. There is no air conditioning, big Windows but not a lot... More

This hotel while not the most modern is in central Bilbao, clean and our room overlooked the river! For the money was great value! They also have secure underground parking which was ideal as I rode over on a motorcycle. The receptionist while she spoke no English was very welcoming and helpful.

This evaluation is in three parts for the three nights were surprisingly different. We found Bilbao a delightful place to stay. We had not begun to explore all the things to do even after 3 days. We have never been in a city so pleasant to walk around, and we did a LOT of walking around it. Good food was... More

Whilst the prices don't appear budget level, the rooms definitely are!! Clean basic, small. No spare pillows or blankets. No air con. So if you are looking... More

Supposedly Deluxe double room but was certainly only a basic room! Small double bed,desk,decent size wardrobe. Bathroom large but basic - door in bathroom was varnished but was streaky and looked scratched. Our sheets didn't cover the mattress let alone tuck in - we did get them changed next day. Did have small french door opening with view to river... More

No breakfast available of any kind, and no cafes are open in the area until way after 9.30am. This is a place badly in need of a renovation and theres no lift. Walls to the room I has... More

I really like the location. It is situated to a walk distance of the main attraction of Sevilla. In addition is it just across the street to most of the shops and the to a Huge Corte Ingles. The room was huge and the bed was really confortable. The breakfast was perfect

This hotel was exactly what we were looking for - great location with views of the river and the old town with lots of great bars and cafes nearby. Having lived and worked in Spain for years I am quite used to the buildings being a little noisy but bring ear plugs if you think this will be an issue... More

The Hotel Ripa is ideally located by the river in the heart of Bilbao, a ten minute walk to the Guggenheim and five minutes to the old town. There are plenty of nearby shops, bars and restaurants. The Hotel is accessed from the street but all the rooms are on the first floor where the reception is. It seems to... More
