Stayed for two nights at this apartment - very clean, colourful and suited us (me, husband, two boys (10 &5) and mother in law) perfectly as a base. It's situated out of the centre but is equidistant to the Guggenheim (18 min walk) and the Old town (13 min). I really liked living amongst locals - plenty of shops and a really nice bar across the road that also serves up a cheap, tasty plentiful breakfast. Oh and there's a street escalator to take back up the hill - brilliant idea!
Perfect location for exploring the old quarter, river, funicular, Guggenheim, etc. Stayed here as a bar for BBK festival - about 30 min pleasant walk to the free bus stop at the stadium. Supermarket, bars and restaurants (mainly in old quarter) nearby. Apartment is modern and in excellent condition, in the heart of a residential area, but not at all far from the sights. In a reasonably hilly street, but there's the added benefit of outside travellators, for the walk back from the old quarter - you just need to cope with the gravity induced run down initially (take it slow and you'll be fine)! Airport bus stop is about 20 mins walk (1.50 euro) but that's the direct option - we prebooked at taxi, for airport to door, for 34 euro. Very enjoyable stay.
Fantastic location, able to walk to the Gig and the old town. the funicular, which is a well worth trip, was just around the corner. We were there during the bank holiday weekend so were able to park outside just up the hill. Don't know what we would have done if we were their longer. Having said that the apartment was fantastic. very high specification and very comfortable. The owner/manager was very nice and could not be more helpful despite our lack of Spanish. I would go back again without any hesitation, Bilbao is a fantastic and friendly city. You do not need a car if you if you are just visiting the city, get a bus from the airport and you will be fine.

There was good space for the three of us. The apartment is in very good condition and clean. It was easy to communicate with the owner before the visit , and she was very friendly when meeting us. Most of the important sights of the city are only 10-15 min by walking from the apartment, and there are small bars and stores just a few meters from the house. Very positive experience indeed!
