Do not be put off by the entrance which looks like a building site. This great hotel in the heart of the old town is clean, convenient for shops and bars and has wonderful staff. I would highly recommend staying there.

Best tip for booking this hotel; if you prefer a good nights sleep do not go for a room with a balcony. We did do so as it seemed nice to be able to get some fresh air into our room but as a result we spent our first night in an incredibly noisy room. Even though we stayed on...

Fantastic location in the old town and within walking distance of all the main sights in Bilbao. Our room was tastefully decorated in neutral colours, with a small balcony for leaning out of. Big ticks for the upholstered headboard, bedside lamps & plug sockets. Staff were friendly and spoke excellent English. Problem with booking via Expedia was resolved easily and...

The hotel is right in the middle of the old town and well-located for walking to all the main tourist attractions; and with the sights and sounds of the city on your doorstep.

We arrived at the hotel at around 10pm. The girl at the desk immediatly made us feel at home. She talked about the city, what to do, what to see, shared some stuff about her personal life, asked us about our roadtrip. Really nice welcome! The room itself was nice, good bed, nice shower. However, at night time it can...

I do not have much experience, except for one trip fifteen years ago, with hostels. From what I remember of that experience, this place was more like a hotel and was a very pleasant surprise. The rooms were clean and perfect for the needs of myself and my two friends. There is no AC, which is not a big deal...

Located in the older part of Bilbao, this hostel's location is great! Although it is located on the third floor with no lift. It is situated near the cathedral and the bells did go off quite often. The room was quite small with a double bed and a small bathroom with the room being cleaned daily. The staff were very...

Stayed four nights. Confirmation email provided easy to understand directions and with its close proximity to the metro station, there is no reason to hail a cab, anything can be reached within minutes.

Very nice location and hotel. Busy area for sightseeing and shopping , lots of street activity! Might be a bit noisy at night for some, we liked it. Good and helpful staff. Third floor location and no elevator could be a problem for some people.
