“Family Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

Perfect hotel to book a room or two for the family when visiting Bilbao.

As all Ibis hotels this is no frills but clean and in a good location, they also have a parking garage if you have a rental car and don't know where to put it while exploring Bilbao.

Didn't try the resturant but recommend that you walk across to the old town (Zazpikaleak) for shopping and go up towards the Guggenheim to find resturants (there are good local ones just around the hotel as well).

And yep, they have wi-fi!

The hotel is located very centrally. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The hotel has its own parking space for your car/rented car. Friendly staff at the reception, very efficient check-in/checking-out. The breakfast is good considering its price level. I would recommend to have an early breakfast. The breakfast at the hotel can be very busy if you take your breakfast at 10:00. Free Wifi in the hotel. Wifi is not very fast in the hotel, but thats quite common in Spain.

Good standard hotel. 10-15 min walk to the old town. 10 minute walk from the train station. 15 min walk from the bus station. The area is fine although if you wander over the railway tracks it was uncomfortable....with prostitutes and all sorts going on! The reception tell you this as you check in which I was glad of but found alarming.

This is a pleasant and well designed hotel. Our room was very quiet--on the inside of the building facing an open area between buildings. We had a good breakfast. The staff was competent and friendly.

The hotel is located in the city centre, so it’s ideal if you’re visiting Bilbao as a tourist. I was just passing through for one night, but I found access by car very easy (using satnav), as the motorway network takes you right into the heart of the city (and quickly out again in the morning). There’s an underground car park, so parking is as secure as possible without being guarded. It costs about 10 Euros per night (I don’t remember the exact price), which is a pretty standard and reasonable fee and is certainly preferable to overnight street parking in a city that doesn’t have the best reputation for crime. The reception staff were helpful and professional, providing maps of the city and explaining how to get to the main sights. There’s a supermarket just a couple of blocks away (at Zabalburu) to stock up on provisions. Facilities are standard for Ibis hotels – if you’re not familiar with the brand, be aware that there’s no safe or fridge, and the only toiletries provided are squeezy soap bottles in the bathroom/shower. Cleanliness was excellent, and there was a laminate floor in the room (which I personally find to be reassuringly cleaner than a carpet). The bed was exceptionally comfortable (as in my experience Ibis beds all are) and the room was well soundproofed, so I woke up fresh and rested in the morning. The air conditioning worked fine. All in all, the hotel offers a good standard of no-frills facilities and excellent value for money (57 EUR per night excluding breakfast). Bilbao is a superb city – and if I return here for a longer stay in the future, I would have no hesitation in making this hotel my base.

Very central hotel with masses of included in the rate underground parking. A few minutes walk to the old town, not really worth it. Same to Gran Via, much more lively and interesting and on to the Guggenheim. Staff, especially Enara and Aroa very helpful and friendly.
Ibis are all the same so nothing different to report, just amazing value for the situation.

Room Tip: No, all rooms the same.
