We stayed one night in the Sirimiri, Bilbao - passing through on our way to San Sebastian. The hotel was simple but neat and the gentleman at the front desk was friendly and accommodating.
Our room was also simple and clean and the bathroom was glistening white! Unfortunately, despite there being "no smoking" signs everywhere the entire hotel smelt very strongly of cigarette smoke, including our rooms and the hallways. Perhaps this was a hangover from the days when smoking was permitted in the hotel.
The hotel and surrounding area was beautifully quiet when we went to sleep, however we were woken early the next morning by the construction on block next door. The sound of tractors demolishing concrete was ear shattering and didn't stop until we checked out. The glazing on the hotel windows was very good, but unfortunately not enough to keep this racket out!
There seemed to be very few guests in the hotel the night we stayed (we only saw two other people), however the gentleman on the desk did not think to put us in a room that faced away from the construction site (no noise could be heard from the hotel lobby, perhaps they were unaware of exactly how loud the activity next door was).
I would recommend this hotel if you are a heavy sleeper, or (a lot) later down the line when the construction next door is finished!
Bilbao itself was an amazing city and we wish we had been able to stay a few more days rather than just passing through. It is a visually stunning place with lots of interesting things to do.
