Excellent location if arriving on the ferry from UK, close to the main route from the port. 15 min walk into the old town, which is beautiful with the streets filled with bars and restaurants. The area has a real buzz to it. Only 25 mins, flat walk along the river to the Guggenheim , which is well worth a visit, stunning building with an interesting walk back through the city. First time in Bilbao, but certainly will not be our last. Modern Hotel with drinks and fruit in reception, large bedrooms with lots of toiletries.
I feel this hotel is mainly used for business and therefore the prices of certain things, ie. parking and breakfast, reflected this but we needed secure parking as it was the start of our trip. Walk back from the town is uphill most of the way and could be uncomfortable during the hottest months.
Triple rooms were excellent, very large. Beds were super comfortable and quiet air con and black out curtains made for a great nights sleep. Staff were very friendly and hotel was spotless.
Breakfast very good. Dinner at restaurant was mixed: good food, but my server both nights was terrible.
Location a bit removed from main part of town and amenities such as bars and restaurants. See previous answer re: dinner service.
Restaurant and breakfast was superb
Ac in room was poor
Wonderful staff, GREAT Breakfast
