        Comfortable beds, attentive staff, free WiFi.

        Expensive parking, only Spanish TV-channels

      • Couple
        8.2

        Close to the metro an good breakfast selection

      • Couple
        6.6

        King size bed, nice room. Was no problem to store our luggage there for the day after checking out. A little far if you plan on walking into the city center, but everything is easily accessible with the metro. If you walk through the park at the top of the hill you can take a unique elevator ride down to the "Casco Vieja", which saves some time and is kind of fun (costs 45 cents).

        Beside the room itself nothing else is included - internet station in the lobby is expensive, the spa/gym area costs €30 per person and you have to make an appointment to use it! Also it is only open between 9am-3pm, so even if you wanted to use it, the hours are quite restricted. Breakfast was expensive, so we opted out for that. Basically the facilities are nice and all there, but at a price.

      • Older travelers
        6.2

        We liked the friendly treatment.

        The Hotel's parking places were too expensive to park close to the hotel. We parked close to it 'cos there are a lot of streets with no parking fees.

      • Couple
        8.2

        Very clean, easy to get to and superb value for money

      • Single
        6.2

        Close to old town

        difficult to find as not signposted ; no tea or coffee making facilities

      • Group of friends
        8.8

        Very helpful desk staff, quiet comfortable rooms.

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        The hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The prices in the bar were reasonable. The hotel was very handy forthe metro to enable us to get about. We would not hesitate to recommend the hotel to someone and indeed use it again ourselves.

      • Single
        8.2

        good location, very comfortable room and bed

        thin walls

      • Couple
        9.6

        The staff was very friendly, and rooms comfortable and modern. There are many international tv channels to choose from. If you're arriving by car, the hotel's exterior private parking costs €14 a day, which is less than the interior car park. Although not in the center of the city, the hotel is very close to a metro station.

        The hotel was great as a whole, although one night we did arrive to find our room door open. Confirmed with the reception it was the cleaning lady who forgot, nothing was missing and this could happen in most hotels.

      • Older travelers
        8.4

        On-site parking and just one metro stop from the City.

      • Couple
        6.2

        Comfortable room. Breakfast was basic. Corridors looked scruffy. Overall fairly good but a bit expensive.

      • Older travelers
        7.0

        comfortable room and good breakfast for the money. Staff helpful and friendly. Good to have onsite parking.

        Directions to the hotel were not easy to follow - not being a Spanish national. More information on how to reach the ferry port from the hotel would also have been helpful. We were late arrivals and wanted to have a something simple to eat at the cafe but it had closed at 11.30p.m. Location was not where we thought it would be.

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        Modern hotel. Relatively easy to find on dual-carriageway round Bilbao, good underground parking, pleasant bar, comfortable rooms. Close to underground station.

        No restaurant; there are only bar snacks (pizzas or burgers) apart from sandwiches to eat in the evening. There are no shops or restaurants in the surrounding area.

      • Couple
        7.8

        comfort, close to metro, good hospitality, girls at the reception were very helpfull.

        the bath was leaking.
