“Lots of character”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

In a converted traditional property this hotel has lots of character. As it is a family run business there is far more of a personal touch about stay that you would get in a branded chain type hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful and we enjoyed a couple of days in Galdakao. The breakfast was traditional and fine and the Wi-Fi and onsite parking were both good. The train station is 100 metres away and Bilbao is not far. We had a rental car and it took about 25 minutes to get to Bilbao airport. The only niggle we had is there were a lack of sockets in the room that were in useable places and the room didn't have it's own heating controls, also the shower wasn't great but none of these things should reallyput you off. We asked about heating and the staff were very helpful in ensuring we were warm enough during our stay. An enjoyable stay with a personal touch.

My friend and I were booked into this hotel by a friend from Galdakao for two nights, while visiting for his wedding. I don't know much of Galdakao but it took about 10 mins to drive from Bilbao bus station so not far. In a really old converted house with only 9 rooms, this family run hotel is gorgeous. Stylish, friendly, good sized rooms filled with antique furniture and masses of character. The dining room is beautiful, tea served in china, and the most delicious homemade cakes for breakfast. Despite us not speaking Spanish the ladies in the dining room made every effort to converse with us and we couldn't have felt more welcome. We didn't get chance to dine in the restaurant in the evening but several people at the wedding told us the food is top notch.

After spending two nights in San Sebastian and paying a fortune for an extremely standard hotel and no breakfast, this was a nice surprise and very much worth it. Its a converted family home, and they live there and run the hotel, which makes it extra homely.

My only negative comment is that our room didn't have aircon or a fan and on such a hot weekend it would have been a bonus. But then I didn't ask or one so its possibly my own fault...

Great service, beautiful old building, extremely stylish and tastefully styled, comfortable and the cakes are delicious! I'd definitely recommend.
