We decided to get away for the weekend to explore a city we were always curious about and also visit the Gehry designed Guggenheim Museum. We chose this hotel as you cannot get much closer to the museum as our room directly faced it. The staff is wonderful, the front desk made a perfect restaurant suggestion and the breakfast buffet...

Great rooms, fantastic terrace on the seventh floor for breakfast, which is very good. Right opposite the fantastic Guggenheim museum, which is more of an art gallery really. Staff helpful and friendly, didn't particularly like the shower situated over a wooden pallet like floor that kept flipping up, what's wrong with a proper shower cubicle, style over substance, I think,...

This hotel is the next best thing to sleeping in the Guggenheim. You cannot get any closer. The positive reviews it gets in addition to this are well earned. Clean, reasonable service etc. But.. You need to have a room that faces the museum. The others are dark and in stuck contrast to the museum facing rooms. Bilbao is small...

We stayed for a weekend based on culture ( a trip to the Guggenheim) and sport (watching an Athletico Bilbao match). The weekend was brilliant on all fronts and the hotel was fantastic. We would recommend the breakfast (despite the cost) as its superb and the stunning views from the Terrace are brilliant. The staff were brilliant and the hotel...

The view! The room was also lovely. Coffee and tea making, which we have found rare in hotels in Spain. Magnificent bathroom with a big bath. Very comfortable bed. Special food in the restaurant. This hotel was expensive but we thought it orth it for a special experience.

Excellent room on 5th floor well served by lifts and looking into the well. Roomy and airy. Lovely bathroom. Different 'treats' left each of the 4 nights. Pillow spray, biscuits etc. Charming and helpful friendlyservice. Top floor has a wonderful breakfast terrace overlooking (and with great views of) the Guggenheim. Top spot.

The service of the people is what everybody expect as client, the location is perfect because you have many restaurants around and is great communicated. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The restaurant is very expensive, so, I don't suggest to eat there, but the breakfast is good despite is a typical european breakfast.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this hotel. From the moment we checked in, the friendly staff went out of their way to provide information about the hotel and Bilbao. The room was large, well appointed, quiet and comfortable. The hotel has a lot of art that seems appropriate in view of the hotel's location across from the...

This hotel is lovely but I was still somewhat underwhelmed. It is of a four star standard being very clean and having a nice modern minimalist decor. The room was also very clean and roomy but we were unlucky and did not have any real windows in our room - so it really just felt like we were staying in...
