“Loved our home from home in Bilbao”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

Really enjoyed staying here - not the most up to date decor but clean and comfortable and everything you might need to enjoy living in Bilbao - even the ice cube trays were filled! Not too far away from the train station where we came in and only a short walk to the square where you pick up the bus to the airport. Well equipped kitchen - oven, microwave, washing machine (bring washing tablets), fridge/freezer and dishwasher as well as essential stove top coffee percolator. Nice comfy sofa set on which to enjoy a bottle of wine in the evenings. Turn left, right and left to find a supermarket for any drinks and food you might need. There is a Japanese restaurant round the corner called Miu which does takeaway and which was absolutely delicious.

Our family traveling to Bilbao several times every year. This time we decided to stay
in center of the city to experience something new. This was the first time to chose a
apartment hotel. The Edificio Santiago is in the heart of the city just a few blocks away from anything. The bus to and from the airport is just five minutes walking distance from the hotel
and it’s the same distance to underground. Our apartment was clean and nice, overlooking the rooftops. The interior in our apartment was not the latest and the furniture have done their best.
The apartment was well equipped with most of the things you need for cooking your food but you have to make same small investments in if you should cook for yourself and your family. The beds in the master bedroom was too hard for our standard but this is normal. The sofa was suspend to be converted to two extra beds, but with very poor quality of the matrass. Maybe it’s ok for two light weight kids. The staff was service minded and helpful. In overall we had a good stay.

Room Tip: Try the upper floor it's more quiet.

This is our second time here as a family of four. The location is great and the property itself is sufficient. However, the walls of our particular apartment are smudged and dirty and could very well use a new coat of paint. Also, the carpeting needs to be replaced, because the unsightly stains are unappealing and the thoughts of what those stains may be from are unpleasant. The kitchen in the suite is a big bonus with a clothes washing machine and dishwasher. All and all a pretty good place. Management just needs to pay attention to the wear and tear.

Very good pricing and you have everything you need. The restaurant downstairs is also to try, it was tasty and always full with locals. Our room was on the top floor and with one living room. The kitchen is well equipped and the classical espresso maker was a great nostalgia. You don't really need the automatic machines of today, thank you for reminding us.
I think if it wasn't for Ester, it would have been only a good ordinary place to stay but with Ester it becomes ritzy. She is definitely one of the very few staff we met in Spain over years that went out of her for happy guests. I hope in years your smile stays the way it is and you carry on with your hotel career always heading higher cause we thought you deserve it.
Overall great choice to stay as a family, don't bother please with no breakfast service, there are two patisseries right at your feet. The rooms are generous with their sizes, you can stay four pax even at the smallest apt.

These apartments are of a very high quality and are excellently located in the centre of modern Bilbao for visiting the Guggenheim and the old town. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment and it was immaculate and the bathrooms and small kitchen were of high quality

I stayed with my family for a couple of days. Nicely situated in the "new" town close to Guggenheim and some restaurant streets. The wifi was bad but otherwise we liked everything. Very close to the pleasant cultural house Alhondiga Bilbao.

Apartment very spacious, clean and tidy. Front of house staff very friendly and helpful. Great location with excellent resturants, supermarket and shops very close by. Only issue was the poor WIFI, gave up in the end. We would stop again though when visiting Bilbao.
