Nice Looking room

The room was decorated and appointed nicely, but unfortunately the shower drain did not work so the entire bath floor flooded when you took a shower. WiFi is weak and available only in certain areas and band width is very slow. Breakfast is nice, and location is excellent. The bed is old and very stiff and hard to make comfortable, I felt like I was sleeping on plywood.

Excellent location.

The location was great. The staff was ok but not as fluent in English as some of the other places I have stayed in Spain. Room was not cleaned after our first night and when I brought it to the attention of the front desk. They said it was because I had out the do not disturb sign, which was not true. After some debate, They then gave me clean towels. Overall good stay because of great location.

Good location

The hotel's location is perfect to visit the lovely city of Bilbao. It is close to the old centre, and is a short walk to the Guggenheim museum. The train station is close and the city's excellent public transportation system makes it easy reaching the airport. The rooms are clean and well sound-proofed. One can get a good rest. The staff is kind and helpful.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

For quick and good value coffee and tapas close to the hotel try the Lapiko cafe. Avoid cafe Berton, all guides recommend it, but it's expensive and uninteresting.

Good location

Good location which is walking distance (within 10-30 minutes mins depending on where you go) to major attractions including the Guggenheim. The metro station which will take you everywhere is also about 5-7 minutes away by walkig from the hotel. A lot of places to eat, drink and shop are near the hotel as well.

Nicely located

Well located at Arenal Bridge between old and new Bilbao. The hotel itself is average and a bit threadbare. Very good access to all parts of the city, close to Guggenheim Museum.
