Recent guest reviews

Positiv: location is central, parking facility is available but very small, nice staff Negativ: to expensive for the quality offered, very old presentation, expensive parking facility If you want to stay in Bilbao, there are better alternatives for the same price.

Nice hotel with tram terminus right outside the front door which takes you to all the attractions.stayed hear 4 nights for a great price of £60 a night for a double room. Hotel was very clean room fine and really nice and helpful staff on reception.

Stayed for one night due to a business trip. Staff was actually really nice and helpful with everything asked. The location is quite good from the center so you can walk to any restaurant if you feel like. Price wise is simply perfect. Room was clean and had a good size. I had some trouble sleeping due some changes in the temperature of the room at midnight but that was all.

Not very central, nothing special just a plain and functional place to stay overnight. Rooms face either the street or a back terrace both quite noisy. Breakfast was surprisingly good. Won't choose this hotel next time.

We stayed one night here, before catching the ferry home. It's a lovely hotel, very professional staff, who speak English too, which is helpful. The room was on the top floor, at the back of the hotel, so was very peaceful, with its own balcony too. Comfortable bed, big clean bathroom, which had disabled access too, lifts to all floors, including the secure car park below the hotel... At extra cost though. The breakfast selection was very good too. It's very convenient for exploring the city, and within walking distance of the main centre... There's a tram which is literally right out the front of the hotel, which can take you to the 'old town' at reasonable cost. So all in all a modern clean well positioned hotel for exploring Bilbao, and to be safe allow an hour to get to ferry terminal... There are an awful of traffic lights... But well worth a visit.

We found the hotel very clean and business like, rather sterile and cold. The staff were lovely and nothing was too much trouble, the rooms were nice and the shower worked perfectly so all good. The breakfast was good and the choice of hot and cold food was great. The food in the evening was pretty bland and the portions were tiny, this may be because we were on a tour with Titan which I wouldn't reccoment, we certainly wouldn't go with them again.

We stayed here for 2 nights and the room was nice, clean and very comfortable. The breakfast cost was a bit more than we expected so next time would probably go somewhere close by. The hotel is in a really good location and the staff at the front desk were very helpful and the hotel is right outside the tram stop so an easy ride to the Guggenheim and Old Town. Lots of good places to eat just around the corner.

The best reason to stay at the Zenit is its 10-minute 1.50 euro tram ride to the Guggenheim. The hotel is sleek and our room had a lovely balcony, but the bed was very small and unbecoming a 4-star hotel—as was the lack of an in-room coffee maker. One pays for parking a car in the hotel garage. The advertised free wifi did not work at all in our room. Breakfast is satisfactory, but the staff did not replenish the buffet and so, for us, many of the options were empty baskets. The oddest event was that when we returned to the room in the afternoon, we noticed the maid had left her "card key" in the device that lights the lights. We napped and noticed, upon waking, that the card was gone; the maid must have opened the door and removed the card key as we slept. Rather unsettling somehow.

Zenit is a very good and a rather cheap choice of hotel in the city of clean and near to top attractions_10-15 foot from guggenheim, 20 to historic center. Autobus and metro station very close. WiFi very good. Nearby there where shops and restaurants. And the people in reception-jose,sonia,vanessa- were extremely nice, polite and helpful. They were a big plus to the hotel.

Nice easy going hotel, with private car park (though you have to pay extra for this) and the tram stop is right outside the main entrance. It is a an easy 20 minute walk to the Guggenheim and the town centre too. There are good cafes open in the morning not too far away for breakfast if you do not want to pay for hotel breakfasts.
