“Good Space on the Outskirts of Bilbao”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

We stayed here on our short visit to Bilbao (one night). While we did not fall in love with the city itself, we enjoyed our night in the Sercotel Gran Bilbao and paid a very reasonable rate for it. The hotel is on the outskirts of the city, so we had to walk quite a bit to get to the restaurants, shops, and even farther to get to the Guggenheim. I would recommend taking public transportation or a cab to the Guggenheim if you stay here since the walk is longer than it may appear on a map. The front desk staff of the hotel were very friendly and helpful, and at least the lady who helped me spoke English, which I appreciated. Parking at the hotel is not free, but it was also reasonably priced and convenient. Overall, we'd recommend staying here for travellers on a budget who don't want to sacrifice comfort.

A good hotel with reasonable prices. Underground parking available at extra cost. A little far from the center but within walking distance.
The breakfast was rich, the rooms spacious and clean. Good sound insulation also.

The rooms are hugh, free wi-fi (tough we had very weak signal in our room), good bath room amenities and calm. Beds are big (separated and solid mattresses), quite comfortable. In front is bus stop (line 77) with connections to the city centre every 10 - 15min. By all means, avoid the breakfast, food is of rather cheap quality.

All in all excellent value for money. But definitely rather on the functional then on the romantic/stylish side.

We stayed in one of their family rooms for one night. On the positive side, the room was clean and spacious but that's about it. The hotel is big and everything is designed to be kept clean and in order without much hassle. The room had no atmosphere at all and neither did the canteen style breakfast room. The staff at reception kept us waiting each time we wanted to ask for their help. The location is about 15 min. walk to the center and you have to walk through a neighborhood that's pretty run down.

high quality hotel for the price with large bedroom and bathroom. the only issue is that it is a little bit of a hike from the central part of town (and up a hill). however, there are buses that provide transportation to and from the city center.

Stayed 3 nights with a Spanish evening class group. Perfect suburban location facing the river about 1km upstream from the old town, quiet and fresh air at night, only 5-10mins walk at normal speed down gentle incline to city centre and transport links, pleasant riverside walk upstream just across the road. Attractive modern style, excellent layout and facilities incl lots of fast, quiet lifts and carpeted corridors. Reception lounge, adjoining restaurant and most rooms with pleasant open view across river to Monte Pagassari other side. Room 316 spotlessly clean, large well furnished (TV correctly positioned, large openable double curtained window, large 4 piece bathroom with double shower and bags of hot water and towels, fridge and safe inside wardrobe), friendly and helpful staff, excellent food (breakfast to die for esp the coffee, buffet supper and one restaurant meal also good fresh food). Efficiently run, friendly and spotlessly clean hotel, good value for money, worth revisiting.

Room Tip: 316 large, well proportioned, well furnished, clean, faced over river. It was rumoured that some fir...

Pleasant hotel spoilt by the location ,you walk down an incline to the centre of town which takes about fifteen minutes when you have experienced the delights of Bilbao you may want to return to your hotel either by bus,taxi or walking if it is the latter try to find a sherpa guide with a bottle of oxygen,you will need it.Inside the Hotel it is wonderful,and the breakfast magnificent all in all a good stay.

Room Tip: You will have a wonderful stay as long as you are fit.
