What is this ??? How is this a 5 star hotel ? The bar is not open til 530, there is nowhere on site to get anything to drink. No room service ( waiting to blame covid - it could be left outside the door ). An empty fridge in the room - see photo - enjoy !! I don't know what has happened to the lamp - see photo - enjoy !! Ripped blind - again - enjoy !! The lady on front desk was nice and the bed is comfortable, we booked a junior suite - it's horrible. You can't even get a drink after travelling. In a 5* hotel. Wow

Hotel's Favorite
Great service from the moment you start checking in. Borja and Christian at the reception desk were super helpful, polite and friendly. They went the extra mile to attend all our requests and needs no matter what they were. Excellent hotel very close with great views and few steps from Guggenheim, will stay again when we come back to the amazing city of Bilbao.

We have stayed in this hotel many times and have had a very good impression.however, this last time things were different.to begin with, one of the two lifts was out of order for at least 3 days provoking queues at reception level and long waiting time if you were trying to go down. Staff ,generally nice ,reacted as if they were hearing it for the first time each time we mentioned the problem. In the room ,the safe wàs also out of order and in the toilets there was a leak. A general feeling of neglect

Gym not available. They blame closure on COVID despite the facilities being open in their delightful Madrid hotel. Lift took over 10 minutes, ended up using stairs. Poor facilities in room, no amenities at all, dirty bathroom floor. Both me and the wife ended up with cuts on us from the sharp edge on the kids pull out bed. Bed not comfy. Lights not working in bedroom..... I could list many more problems. ....and this was their flagship presidential suite! They seem understaffed, poorly managed and unable to deal with customer grievances.

Upgraded to suite having not traveled for severe years due to Covid. Big mistake. Found it unequiped and not clean. Despite promises to clean it immediately we tolerated a scruffy suite for our first day. Hoping for better tomorrow.
