We got a really good deal for a 3 night stay in December. Lovely comfortable hotel in a great location. The football stadium directly in front of the hotel is very impressive. We were able to walk into the city along the river and jumped on the tram on the way back. We loved Bilbao and everything the city and...

Stayed here 3 nights, booked via British Airways. Location: Very easy journey by airport bus to the main bus terminal, which is next to the football stadium, & at only at E1.45. The tram line is a 5 minute walk away. Room: My room was quiet, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was well supplied, had a tub and shower,...

Although slightly off pitch next to the football stadium it is still well located and in a regeneration area yet close t the bus station. The view ver the river is a bonus. The staff without exception were very helpful and friendly. Cannot find fault.

This hotel is best in Bilbao. Beyond its views (between the river and the brand new San Mames Stadium), the New Year Eve 2016 celebration was spectacular. The menu was a perfect combination between sea and country side-food: Vieria with mango and lime, octopus and porrusalda, and a great rump steak. During the dinner, the drinks were a great combination...

The hotel is quite close to the airport, but the public transport is troublesome to the airport so you need to get a taxi/transfer vehicle. Once at the hotel it is close to everything in Bilbao and you can comfortably walk around easily in the city centre. The football stadium could not be closer! We were here for a city...

Toilets were not well kept there were mould, in the sinks and handles. Service: attitude in the reception and the male waiters was unfriendly We did not get any information when we arriwed. It was quite a shock to hear in the evening that we had to pay more to get breakfast.

The hotel is conveniently location to the intercity bus station (if you want to go on day trips to San Sebastián or Biarritz). Regular rooms, well priced. The big surprise for us was a restaurant. We were there on a busy week August (football, fiesta, fireworks competition), and didn't reserve any restaurants in advance. It was a challenge to find...

I have been staying at the hotel for the past year on regular business travel and having stayed in other hotels in the city it is the best hotel for service, friendly staff and location. I would highly recommend it.
