Me and my wife stayed here mid week in June. It's located in the medieval quarter of the city. There are plenty of bars and restaurants right on its doorstep and within 2 minutes walk of the metro stop. The room we stayed in was small with a window onto a very small courtyard. It was comfortable and clean. The... More

We were for a break of three days and it was special, intimate, comfortable and very close to everywhere, very well located just in the old town (Casco Viejo) Lots of bars around... Simple but enough!!! The staff is very helpful and friendly.

My friends(3 and I) went to Bilbao on May 27 2015. We stayed three nights in this Pension because of the location and have good recommendations. I have to say that the lady in charge was nice and try to help us in everything. Very noisy, you can perfectly hear everything going on in the corridor and in other rooms.... More

I went with my boyfriend on November and it was the best choise ever! Very comfortable, quiet and next to everything. I don't know if another period is the same, but we were very pleased to stay there for 3 days!

Bilboa is beautiful but the parking situation spoiled our stay. It is extremely complicated to park near the centre and the staff is totally unhelpful. It took us three international calls from a cell phone and more than an hour to locate the parking. The hotel told us that the parking attendants did not take money but when we reached... More

Last June, me and my friend, two greek women, visited Bilbao and stayed in Pension Mardones. We have no words to describe the amazing hospitality of the Pension's owner, as he helped through various situations. The rooms smell excellent, they are comfortable and really clean and the location super central! On top of that the price is great! Gracias Sr... More

Great location in the Casco Viejo district. Easy to go pintxos hopping and within a block or two of the tram stop. In nice weather the Guggenheim is within walking distance. Even though our room balcony faced the calle, there was no problem with street noise and sleeping. The host was wonderful; we were there on my birthday and he... More
