Hotel Abando is spacious, clean, very modern and equipped with everything you'd expect from a 4* hotel, including a gym and large rooms. The service was polite and friendly, and we enjoyed the delicious breakfast which was bountiful and varied, if a little pricey at €15 a pop.
Our visit was during the Fiesta Mayor so we suffered from a few disturbed sleeps given the music and shows coming from the square opposite. However, this is out of the hotel's hands and this event only happens once a year.
Situated in the centre of Bilbao, just round the corner from the metro, it's the perfect place to stay in comfort in this fascinating city.More
