We feel like we are staying in a gracious old home. The reception area is filled with lounges and potted plants and momma is a lovely old lady and her daughter is very helpful. The room we have is on the corner overlooking the river and the beautiful theatre, with two balconies and huge windows. A large bedroom with nice...

I really liked this hotel. it wasn't too expensive - I turned up on the doorstep quite late in the evening and got a decent double room with a balcony. It is in a great location - opposite the tram stop. When you arrive at the bus station in Bilbao it can be a bit daunting - because it is...

This is a simple one star hotel but it has all that is necessary. It doesn't do breakfast but that can be eaten very cheaply next door. The hotel is on the edge of the old town and not far from the railway station. There is a computer for guest use

Took this hotel as a last resort, as there was a convention in town. Pluses: There's a cat! Parking is available. Free wi-fi Minuses: -odd smells -not so clean -mediocre service -unprofessional... I had to remind who appeared to be running things that she made me an offer which we agreed upon. The difference was a nominal sum, but the...

I "planned" (not my strong point) a short trip to Bilbao and surroundings. Normally I pre-book accommodation being too lazy to spend hours trudging round trying to find a place to stay for two days. (In fact the really helpful person at the Bilbao central tourist office would have phoned and booked for me but I wanted to look at...

They showed us to our room which was horrible and had a window that looked into the middle of building and it a disgusting site....

My daughter Tapas and I spent just a day in Bilbao last week and Arriaga turned out to be the best hotel we encountered in our month-long tour of Europe. A long and tiring journey from Paris had brought us to the doorsteps of Arriaga and we were instantly made to feel at home by the young bespectacled receptionist who...

We had booked this hotel on the back of a 2002 Rough Guide review saying that it was the best of the medium hotels in Bilbao. I can only presume that it has lost stars since 2002 as we later discovered that it was only a one star hotel. As very few people in northern Spain speak anything other than...
