I love Bilbao and the Carlton Hotel! Everything is perfect about this hotel and that's why we stayed here again for the third time: convenient location in the heart of of the city with the park, river, lovely shops and museums nearby; access to the airport bus is just across the street as is the metro to the beach; the stained-glass domed lobby and old stairwell are beautiful; the rooms are spotless and spacious, the beds are divinely comfortable. The staff couldn't be more courteous and helpful. Everything is tasteful and cosy. Not only that, but Carlton Hotel is the best bargain in Europe!
We prefer taking breakfast at the cafe around the corner, but we had dinner here our last night (March 27) and were pleasantly surprised. The dinner was delicious and not expensive, the atmosphere delightful. I'm sorry we hadn't tried it earlier. (The snacks at the bar are mediocre so don't judge the food by that. The dining room has a great chef!) We'll be back again next year as Bilbao is one of my favorite cities in Europe and the Hotel Carlton is such a treat. Thank you for a most pleasurable visit again.
