Zenit Bilbao

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed here only two nights, not really long enough to appreciate Bilbao. The hotel was completely refurbished last year and they have done an excellent job. Nice room, quiet at the back, two large single beds pushed together (normal for Spain) but very comfortable as were the pillows supplied. Very good selection for breakfast including eggs and bacon plus loads of fruit, croissants and cold meats. Right opposite the hotel is the handy Euskotren tram system.....has a stop at Guggenheim at only @ €1.50 per trip bargain! Very pleasant and helpful staff on reception speaking excellent English! I can recommend this hostelry wholeheartedly. Had lunch on my departure day and the hake was cooked to perfection reasonably priced and they opened the restaurant early so I didn’t miss my bus!!

We stayed there for the second time. It is always a nice clean hotel. The staff helps as good as they can Great breakfast Parking at hotel is quite tight It is not in the city center but all is at walking distance

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.
