We stayed here for two nights after a night in San Sebastian. We were offered an upgrade to a junior suite for 20 euros and had no hesitation after seeing the suite. Our original room was great but the suite was just amazing. Lovely view of the Guggenheim from the full length windows, a massive bed and a bath as well as a shower. The staff were really helpful, very friendly and keen to offer advice and help whenever we asked.
We even got free tickets to the Guggenheim (which made up one night's upgrade!).
Bilbao is a lively, vibrant city that is full of surprises. Don't miss the Museum of Belle Artes nearby as it is just as good as the Guggenheim even though it is less spectacular from the outside.
Also well worth making the trip up the funicular to the hills overlooking the city. Great food everywhere and a great buzz in a real lived-in city that you feel is not just there for the tourists.More
