This was a pleasant and welcoming hotel. Its location, overlooking the Guggenheim Museum, was ideal for us. The interior design of the hotel is stunning, and the roof top terrace restaurant in which we took breakfast every day afforded unequalled views of the Guggenheim. The room was spacious, well equipped and furnished and immaculately clean. The staff were friendly efficient...

A very nice hotel right next to the Guggenheim museum, - the reason for our visit. Valet parking, friendly and efficient staff, nice and clean room. And breakfast at the roof restaurant at sunrise with view across the museum was an experience.

This is an excellent hotel in good location for exploring Bilbao. Staff are friendly and helpful. Nice breakfast facility on the 7th floor terrace. Wifi is a bit of a hassle as you need a code for each device and they need renewing every 24 hours.

We stayed here for two nights on our way to catch the ferry to Portsmouth. We chose the hotel because of its location and car parking facilities - not cheap at 25 euros per night but worth it. We had a deal that included entrance to the Guggenheim on the Monday and were fortunate that it was the first Monday...

Many positive things can be said about this hotel. However for a 5 star hotel I expect at least a good quality pool and accompanying facilities. None of these are available. The rooms seem to vary depending in being an inner room [facing a piece of stone art work] or looking outwards. The latter let you see the Guggenheim and...

A really nice hotel just in front of the Guggenheim. Interesting interior design and comfortable rooms. It is said to be a 5 star hotel and although in this category it does not stand out as something exceptional, one can argue the category is deserved. Fantastic view from the terrace where breakfast is served – the Guggenheim building can be...

Reasonably priced, modern, directly across from the Guggenheim Museum and a lovely riverside park, I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Bilbao. The staff was helpful, the rooms clean and cheerful, the terrace bar facing the museum the perfect place for a glass of splendid Spanish wine.
