Rooms were clean, staff was very friendly and the location was great. One top of a hill with a unique view off Bilbao. City is easy to reach with a small mountain train (funicular). Great for the kids, only 2 km from the hotel, free parking and ticket costs less than €1,-.

We booked this because it was described as a farmhouse hotel we we wrongly assumed it was a country farmhouse hotel something more special than it actually was. But that aside this hotel is worth it a visit due to its location above the city, it's free parking and the nearby funicular carriage down to the city. It is divided...

Ideally located on the ridge overlooking the city, this quiet hotel was the perfect spot to rest up before spending the day wallowing in Jeff Koon's prodigious ego manifested so perfectly in the art collection currently resident in Bilbao's stunning Guggenheim complex. There were other works there too - Richard Serra's The Matter of Time dominated a whole room -...

Stayed here on our last night in Bilbao. Hotel receptionist was really informative and told us a lot about the area and where to eat. We went into bilbao on the funicular which is really near the hotel at 96 cents one way it's a bargain. Drops you right near the guggenheim. Room quite small and basic, beds comfy bathroom...

This hotel does not aim to be luxurious - what you get is a very clean and pleasant room for an overnight stop, a warm welcome and convenient parking right outside. It was so easy to drive the mile or so to get the funicular (again, free parking) down to the centre. You have your mooch and meal in busy...

We stayed here after a late flight into Bilbao as it was reasonably cheap, easy to get to, and with free parking. The place was very nice with friendly staff and a decent sized, very clean room and a nice bathroom. It's up the hill from the city itself so you have great views from the windows. To get to...

Our satnav couldn't find the address of the site but keying in Berrizbidea worked. (The owner is aware of the situation. ) This hotel is ideal to catch the ferry at Bilboa or even coming off the ferry!! It is very adequate in all facilities and so quiet. The welcome was good and the owner speaks excellent English. The breakfast...

Four of us stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment for 2 nights. We were greeted by a friendly staff member, who spoke good English, that explained things to us and also gave us some information on what to see in Bilbao.
