Despite my Room (215) was so hot in summer, it's not a very good idea to open the window cause the air conditioning machines, the service, breakfast and locations are good. Good places to visit, city center to have a tapa.

I stayed here on two separate weekends. At the Start and finish of my Camino route(Bilbao-Santandar). The hotel is very central to everything. Shopping area, cafes, restaurants. Taxi rank across the street,all forms of public transport outside the door.Walking distance to the Guggenheim (approx 15 mins). Rooms were clean. Breakfast had a good varierty(hot & cold) on Offer. Luggage can be locked away at reception if you have a late departure. Free wifi. Mini bar in the room. Staff at reception were very helpful. Bikes can be rented from reception.

We loved this hotel. The staff were Really good, provided us with advice on how to get to the hotel as we were travelling from San Sebastián, provided advice on restaurnts and were generally helpful. The room was. really comfortable with a great outlook of the city. Bilbao was a little very city to visit.

The hotel is located right in the centre of Bilbao, next to oldtown, the Opera House and the river. Thye rooms are small but have every amenity.Decent shower and bathroom, large comfortable beds and crisp clean white linen. The TV only has Spanish chanels, but then it is in Spain !! Breakfast was great and not too pricey. Didn't use the bar or lounge but they looked fine.

I stayed in Arana Petit Palace at Bilbao with my family and I enjoyed my stay there since they have a lovely environment inside of a traditional house. The people from the reception were great and perfect. No doubt if you are deciding about it.

A beautiful hotel a mixture of old and new. Just 50 metres from the nearest tramway station . The hotel is a mixture of old original and new features. The rooms are are clean quiet and a good size with a very modern bathroom . Breakfast is served on the top floor in a beautiful loft conversion . The location is perfect for exploring the old town and is a 10 minute walk to the train station.

We had a great stay at petit palace: locaction is central. The service is supergreat: employees very friendly en made sure everything we needed was there. And special requests were attended to immediately. Breakfast was very good: lots of different choices made it a enjoyable experience.

Spent 5 nights in this lovely hotel. Clean Double room on 4th Floor was of a good size with lovely clean crisp bedding on the biggest imaginable bed. Great power shower and a comprehensive range of toiletries, dental kit, saving kit, shower cap , comb etc etc.Building itself very old and interesting, with a modern hotel slotted into it. Effective air cond in room and free wi-fi as well as a reasonably priced minibar. All reception staff consistently polite and helpful. Location very convenient for exploring both the new and old towns Close to bars and restaurants, with a convenient metro stop at the end of the road. Did not have to book out of the room until noon and even then we were able to leave our luggage in secure storage until our evening flight. Breakfasts were excellent and varied every day of our 5 night stay. Only blot on our stay was a very early morning alarm call from the man on a noisy cherry picker inspecting the balconies of the building opposite - not the fault of this hotel

I was just one night for business reasons. I stay a lot in this town. The location is marvelous, just in the heart of the oldtown. The room wasn't as good as I expected though. Litlle and very noise as it was near the staircase door. Was very loud everytime a guest went up or down the stairs. The breakfast though was astonishing. So detailed for every taste. Good value for that.

Perfectly satisfactory, loads of restaurants nearby and old part of town. Not so easy if driving but near town centre and public transport. Character hotel in old building. Friendly and helpful staff, rooms clean but small.
