“Location”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

Recently stayed ghere for three nights with my wife. Location within the old part of town was fantastic although I recommend a good map to show the taxi driver where it is (ours didnt know and at 6 am created a minor hassle). The lovely young lady on reception speak english very well and is very helpful. The whole place is well decked out our only concern was that our room was a bit too small for the two of us plus luggage

Room Tip: Request the larger rooms and be prepared with a good map to locate

Just back from a really enjoyable trip to Bilbao during which I stayed in Basque Boutique. The location is wonderful in terms of being so central do all the old town (Casco Viejo) sights, restaurants, bars and transport links.

The rooms are bright and airy and the general decor of the Basque Boutique is really different in a quirky sort of way. The girl on reception was really friendly and helpful with any questions I had. Would definitely recommend it and would also stay there again.

A brilliantly unique hotel in the heart of Bilbao old town...had great fun trying to locate it, wandering up and down Calle la Torre in the middle of the night, however, that aside, the rooms are fabulous...all individually designed/styled. We had the Euskera room, dedicated to the Basque language and culture, perfect for a romantic weekend.

This pension is located in the middle of the bar district of Casco Viejo and there is a terrible noise and lots of people in the streets specially during weekends. If you are not into pintxos-eating, drunken tourists, this could irritate you.

This is a quite new pension but they already have some plumbing problems - the shower sink did not drain properly even after cleaning and uh, you need to put your used toilet paper in the trashcan, not flush it. Otherwise the rooms are nicely decorated!

Note that the reception is on site only during mid-day, otherwise even checking in is self-service (you get a door code in advance).

This Hotel is located in the heart of casco viejo. Everything is reachable easily and we didn´t find it was so noisy at night. Rooms were beautiful and tidy and clean. It was like a little oasis in the middle of the casco viejo. We would recommend this place to everybody looking for a hotel in Bilbao and will definitely come back again.

beautiful hotel in romantic old building, slightly noisy at night from the street but the perfect location in old town, and the price combined with high standards make up for it! well worth the stay. yummy pinchos just around the corner.
