This place is ok but definitely no better than that. My room (13) was tiny (looking at the plan on the door it seems to be the smallest). Clean is all you can say. Location is best feature as very central. Noise carries through the whole building so if you move a chair everyone will know. They don´t even sell... More

Clean, decent sized rooms and convenient location are the highlights of this hotel. A bit basic for a romantic getaway, but if you want an affordable place within walking distance to the Guggenheim, Old Town, the railroad station, and Metro, this ticks all the boxes. Fast, free wifi. Note - no elevator.

There is no breakfast available at the hotel but there are plenty of cafes. There is no lift so you have to carry your... More

The rooms are small but clean, the noise does carry In the rooms facing the courtyard, mainly the neighbors. There is no air conditioning, big Windows but not a lot... More

This hotel while not the most modern is in central Bilbao, clean and our room overlooked the river! For the money was great value! They also have secure underground parking which was ideal as I rode over on a motorcycle. The receptionist while she spoke no English was very welcoming and helpful.

Whilst the prices don't appear budget level, the rooms definitely are!! Clean basic, small. No spare pillows or blankets. No air con. So if you are looking... More

I really like the location. It is situated to a walk distance of the main attraction of Sevilla. In addition is it just across the street to most of the shops and the to a Huge Corte Ingles. The room was huge and the bed was really confortable. The breakfast was perfect
