I needed a hotel with a pool to exercise my back, this was on special, so we grabbed a room for the night. Efficient & friendly front reception staff, easy parking underneath, well designed foyer, resturants and pool. In an earlier existence I... More

No surprises at this hotel. Staff was friendly and helpful. Location is outside main part of city, so a car is best. Room was smaller than expected and an odd design, meaning one person was nearly sleeping with their head in the bathroom. Breakfast buffet was okay, but not any real value for the price.

However it can be found :) Hotel is located in exhibition area - several kilometers from the city of Bilboa. As we have a car it wasn't any problem. Near to the hotel there are a lot of... More

All service for clients is included. Stuff is polite and friendly. Good price for good quality. If a purpose of trip is a event in Exhibition center it's a right hotel. This hotel not for rest if haven't a car because it's not comfortable way for public transport.

Nice hotel with a good location (bit away from city). Need more vegetarian items in Room Service/Restaurant Menu. Food & Beverage service needs improvement. We ordered vegetarian salad and got delivered salad with Tuna in it.

Friendly staff (most of them were speaking french or english...), the room was big enough for 2 adults and 1 child (6 years old), the hotel has a wide choices of services such as pool, kids playground (good for kids under 8, otherwise it won't be appropriate). When it comes to the restaurant, we were a little disappointed, service was... More
