The hotel is very well located, close to the old city, and not far from the modern city center. The Guggenheim is a bit farther (1-1.5 km).
The hotel is modern, and the decoration rather "cold". The nice surprise was the size of our room (a superior one, nbr. 245): it was huge, on two levels, with a sitting area. The bathroom was spacious too, and equipment up-to-date. The room was very quiet, as it was on a pedestrian street, and at an end side of the hotel.
Personnel was friendly and helpful (at least in Spanish).
Buffet breakfast was a bit pricy, considering the choice and quality.
Some parking slots are not easy to get into, even with a medium-size car.
All in all, an excellent option while visiting Bilbao.

My wife and i stayed here for 4 night in September 2012. The room was a good size and well furnished. The bathroom was excellent. The buffet breakfast was typically Spanish and of a good standard. The staff were friendly and helpful without exception. The location could hardly be bettered, although Bilbaois a city that you can see almost entirely on foot.. We would recommend this hotel for a stay in Bibao

Hotel is located right in the middle of town, in fact a few short walk from the central rail station. It is totally modern and recently built inside an older building. It has very generous spacious room and bath, nice wif connection and attached parking in the basement. It is very comfortable throughout and the price may be on the higher side but it is definitely very nice for the visit of Bilbao!
My only suggestion to the management is that one can use more counter space in the bathroom especially for long stays.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pedastrian street are more quiet as the large windows are opearble.

chose this hotel for a week in Bilbao as the location was superb for tapas bars and shopping and walking the riverside walk to the Guggenheim.The rooms were spacious and very comfortable with two large beds and a beautifully fitted bathrooms.We had a veiw of the street but no noise in the room at all.There is a lovely outdoor bar area too.The reception staff were extremely helpful and gave us lots of useful tips and directions.We got the bus from the airport and it was just a short walk to the hotel.The building is very impressive from the exterior as it was previously an opera house.We chose to eat out for breakfast and found loads of great options near this hotel.

Room Tip: we were on the front street and did not hear any noise at all

We have just spent one very comfortable night at this relatively new hotel. No faults at all. Lovely spacious room and bathroom. Well positioned to see all the sights. Private parking. Helpful staff. Not at all expensive for a very well positioned hotel.
Highly recommended for anyone visiting Bilbao.

Really convenient location - about 10 minutes walk to the old town and also convenient for the more modern/shopping areas. Close to the main train station. The room was larger than we'd expected and very comfortable and clean. No problems with noise. The reception staff were all very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again.

Not much to add to the other reviews just a case of endorsing the main points. Good location, clean comfortable spacious rooms at a fraction of what you would pay in the UK, USA or Australia.
Helpful reception - free admission & complimentary drink in the casino .
It's exactly as described on the web site & in the reviews. Slightly lacking in charm or quirkiness but it's a large modern city centre hotel - and a good one.
