Wonderful weekend in this cultural city. La Salve was basic but very clean, comfortable and the staff very helpful. Very good value and an excellent base for a low cost trip. Bilbao is a beautiful city. Enjoyed the Guggenheim Bilbao museum and all the little bars came alive at night. Transport is very cheap and there are lots of things... More

La Salve is north of Bilbao and outside the city centre though it is not far at all walking. If you come mainly for the Guggenheim Museum it might be a great place to stay. The room is very basic but there is everything one needs. I noticed though the towels were directly set on the bed cover which may... More

A bit difficult to find at night, a short taxi ride there is the best bet from the airport. Simple rooms with good bathroom. Bed was comfortable. Never did work out breakfast and ended up down by the river at great crepe place right opposite the Guggenheim. Easy downhill walk to the Guggenheim which we thoroughly enjoyed.

Don't expect to much and you will be fine. Can be a littke noisy depending on the room. The staff were helpful. I paid £33 so what do you expect. Short walk to the guggenheim. Easy access to rest of the city.

The localization is great a bit out of the city - no in tourist area - but very close to Guggenheim and city center. the room was clean and quite big - simple - bed could be better. I stayed there for a week. Staff very friendly. The only one minus for me was that my room was on the... More

close to centre and Guggenheim, just a little hard to find. You have to head a little further up the hill than you think. Stayed for 2 week days, no problem at all. Clean and quiet. Supermarkets and bars only a couple of blocks away.

Stayed at La Salve whilst visiting the BEC exhibition centre. Very reasonable priced, room basic but spotlessly clean and friendly reception staff. Handy for centre and Guggenheim but bit of a trek to the nearest Metro station. River very close with lovely Paseo and views of the stunning architecture both ancient and modern. Breakfast spartan, choice of a cake or... More

A bit hard to find, but nice if you're travelling cheap. The breakfast is basic, but still good, when compared to other places in Spain. It has a garage for about 10€/night, because it is really hard, not to say impossible, to park in the street.

To find this place a satnav is a great help. The underground parking facilities are superb, safe and gives easy access to the hotel lobby. The nabager and his wife spoke excellent English, were welcoming, knowledgeable and very helpful and did the best the could with the tools they had. The pension is situated in the university student quarter so... More

The hotel is located in a quiet neighbourhood. It is within a walking distance from the centre, but on top of a hill.. There was some street noise from the La Salve bridge and the nearby train track, so bring you ear plugs if you are a light sleeper! The room was decent sized for two persons, but a little... More
