Reviewed yesterday NEW

This hotel lacks the class of a 5 star hotel and it lacks charm. Our room had view over the inner court where a huge sculpture with stones in a net structure is the only thing to rest your eyes upon - not very exhilarating. The hotel has a very clean interior design that to me feels more boring than...

Top quality hotel with professional staff. I paid extra for a bedroom with Guggenheim view and was glad. The location is stunning and breakfast is served in the roof top dining area with a terrace overlooking the Guggenheim. There is a good variety of delicious food available and it is a great way to start the day. The bedroom was...

This hotel is simply not reaching the potential as it can be much better. Location is perfect. Right in front of the Guggenheim Museum. This is also lovely, when you have the breakfast outside on the terrace. Room is quite good - you find there anything you need. Bed is quite comfortable. However, the bathtub can be easily upgraded to...

I came early to drop my bags after vacating a subpar hotel across town after not having slept much due to noise levels and gross conditions in the other hotel. Reception desk was chaotic. There were several people at the desk running about looking confused to help one guest in front of me. They were very friendly and quick to...

We arrived before we were officially allowed to check in on a Friday afternoon - but were shown straight to our lovely room. There were refurbishment works going on during our stay but they in no way affected our level of comfort. Bilbao is a very walkable city - but the tram stops close by if you wanted to use...

Stayed in an executive room with view over Guggenheim Museum. Helpful and friendly staff, wonderful luxurious room, nice bath and a bed that makes you sleep like a baby. Next time in Bilbao I will definitely stay in this hotel again. Maximum 15 minutes walk to the old city.
