Spent one day in Bilbao - which is not enough. Bilbao was the surprise city on the recent drive from Italy to southern Spain via Bilbao, and Salamanca. It's a beautiful city with much more to see and do than solely the Guggenheim. The population is very friendly, helpful, and a number speak multi-languages. But enough of the city. The hotel, HGB, is nice enough, but a 25 minute walk into the centro. There is public transportation however, including a bus that passes by the hotel and street cars which stop roughly 3/8ths of a mile away; but then you have to walk up a steep hill to get to the hotel. The room was large, well equipped and modern. Bathroom was very nice and modern. The hotel staff we dealt with were excellent. If you want to eat breakfast at the hotel - book it the night before and it is much less money. Public parking is impossible to find by the hotel as the locals seem to abandon their cars for days on end without moving them. Hotel parking is the only way to go. The hotel in reality is more likely a 3+ star. There is no workout facility, or pool, etc. Nevertheless, the Wi-Fi is super, the cost was quite reasonable, and if you walk to centro you see some very neat area of Bilbao. Definitely worth a stay at the HGB. jr
