Stayed there a number of times and have never been disappointed.
Located across the street from one of the most beautiful buildings in the world, the Bilbao Guggenheim Museum and the emblematic Jeff Koon sculpture "Puppy", the gigantic flower covered terrier.
The hotel is very trendy and as soon as you step into the lobby, you cannot help but be surprised by the huge wire mesh structure filled with polished stones that spans various floors. The elevators are all glass and face the lobby. The rooms are fairly large, very comfortable with ample closet space, excellent mattress and well designed room controls such as lights and air conditioning.
The bathroom is very well designed and can fit two persons without stepping on each other toes. It has a glass partition that separates it from the bedroom which can remain open or private by moving a curtain sandwiched in double glass. Some rooms have closed showers and others are simply open on the inside which gives an odd sensation. The fixtures are modern, first class and the toilet is separated from the rest of the bathroom. Plenty of towels are provided and all kind of cleverly designed amenities.
The hotel receptionists are efficient and pleasant and the bellboys surprising; they heard us talking about finding fine cured ham in Bilbao and one of them told us where to acquire it in the old part of the city; it was a great recommendation.
The bar is trendy, interestingly modern, and the service is speedy and pleasant.
The cafeteria and restaurant serves excellent basque food.
Had a business meeting there and were provided with a well equipped room with all the perks.
There is a parking facility at the hotel basement, which is a blessing in a city such as Bilbao.
Highly recommended, especially if you can secure rooms facing the museum.
There are plenty of excellent restaurants and great shopping within walking distance.
