Palacio Urgoiti is a beautiful 11-acre retreat located just 15 minutes away from Bilbao. This 17th century palace has been carefully rebuilt as a luxurious four-star hotel. Like a life-size puzzle, the building was taken down stone by stone from its original location and thirty years later, the family has fulfilled its dream of rebuilding it exactly the way it was originally. Surrounded by a 9-hole Pitch & Putt golf course and dominating the nearby mountains, the hotel is located less than 15 minutes from downtown Bilbao and very close to the Zamudio Business Park and the Airport. The beaches of Plentzia and Bakio are only 15 minutes away. Ideal for business or vacation, Palacio Urgoiti offers the perfect balance between the warm and relaxing feel of a stately home and the comfort of state-of-the-art facilities. Palacio Urgoiti is a singular hotel in every aspect, from its magnificent building and elegant decor to its history. Originally located in Galdakao, the building was moved to its present location when the new motorway Bilbao-Behobia was laid out, in an impressive and arduous effort of cataloguing and preserving all its artistic elements. The hotel offers a perfect balance between a warm and welcoming atmosphere and the comfort of state-of-the-art facilities. A comfortable guest lounge with a fireplace and meeting and event rooms with natural light and direct access to the terrace complement the facilities. The hotel provides amenities like banquet facilities, bar, business centre, concierge, conference facilities, disable facilities, dry cleaning, golf course, gym, internet access-high-speed, internet access-wireless, laundry service, lift/elevator, lobby, non-smoking rooms, reception, restaurant, room service, safe deposit box and swimming pool-indoor.

This is a great place to stay if you have an early flight from Bilbao, as it is only five minutes from the airport. The hotel is in a beautiful setting at the top of a hill. It feels like a resort -- and does have a golf course. The fitness center
and pool are open for only a few hours in the morning, a big drawback for us, as we arrived late and left early. As the hotel restaurant is the only one nearby, be prepared to wait until 9 pm for dinner. Or order lighter fare at the bar beginning at 8 pm.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
No other restaurants within walking distance, and this one opens at 9 pm. However, you can get excellent salads and sandwiches in the bar.
We stayed at the hotel in order to be close to the airport for an early morning flight. I would return again and stay when we are in Bilbao. The setting is beautiful, the staff lovely and helpful, the room large, well-appointed and beautiful,
bathroom fabulous. The value was unbeatable and well worth twice the price.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
There is a lovely patio outside the bar where people gather for drinks. There is also a short bar menu available. Restaurant is very good. Opens about 9. You can eat at the bar sooner.
