“Vista Alegre, Bilbao.”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

Just returned from Bilbao BBK between 8/7/14 & 15/7/14 and stayed in the Vista Alegre for 6 night's. 6 travellers sharing 2 room's each with 3 single beds. Room's basic but clean and cleaned daily. Sheets and bath towels also changed daily (I am a bit phobic about cleanliness). I can't comment on the food (breakfast) as we ate out. The Hotel is in a relatively central area, and it is easy to navigate the city from here. Plenty of public transport services available as well as patisseries and bars selling tapas. We didn't experience any problems with personal safety although we were in a group of 6. The hotel staff advised us to stay out of the San Francisco area which we did. You get what you pay for and in my view it was worth the cost.

Room Tip: Room's situated at the front of the hotel are a bit noisy from general street noise. Those situa...

Previous reviews pretty much reflect our experience. The hotel was clean but basic, consistent with its two star catagory, a fifteen minute down-hill walk to the railway station and centre. A few restaurants in the area. No elevator and not very strong wifi in the room - worked better in the little lounge down the hall.

Were given a terrible room with no window after booking on line. And of course no lift! The double bed was small next to the wall and the tv didn't work... well it was ok for two very tired people who had spent all afternoon at the museum. And not too far from the city centre and shops and cafes.The staff at reception desk were adequately helpful but very bad English!

Good location to explore the city, you can walk almost anywhere. Clean rooms, but paper-thin walls, so the hotel is quite noisy. Furniture and decoration are old-fashioned, but its cleanliness has to be mentioned. Nice and welcoming staff.

Not far from city centre, clean, friendly and helpful staff. Room was really very small, no insonorization, definitely need renovation and maybe it is a little bit overpriced. Breakfast self service is ok.

This is a nice hotel with very helpful, friendly staff. It's only 15 min walking from Abando station. The room and bathroom was very clean and spacious (especially for a Spanish hotel). The bed was also fairly comfortable. All the staff, morning and night, were friendly and went out of their way to help. The only downside is that I had a room facing Calle Pablo Picasso, which is unbelievably noisy. It wasn't too bad with the window shut but obviously you don't want to keep the window shut in August. It's also sort of on the edge of a rougher neighborhood so there are a lot of police around and people out in the streets at all hours. I never felt unsafe though and there is a large Carrefour and bakery just across from the hotel. All in all, I was very happy with my stay.

Room Tip: Try to avoid rooms facing Calle Pablo Picasso.
