Bilbao is a nightmare of a city to drive in. Poor signage, one way streets and pedestrian walkways all make for a very confusing drive. We must have driven around for at least one hour looking for the hotel, stopping to ask for directions without any success. We finally found a gas station attendant who gave us clear driving instructions to the Guggenheim. After a very brief stop, we decided to skip the rest of the town. Somehow, we found Miraflores Avenue. My spouse just happened to see a sign for the hotel on the side of a building. Turning in, there it was near a church square. Absolute chance allowed us to find it!
The hotel was very good. The attendant spoke good English. Parking at the back of the hotel is very limited and tight. It took a while to squeeze into the parking space. Our room was a standard room, small but comfortable. It was very clean and the bathroom was well appointed. The bed was comfortable. The room was very quiet. We did not buy the breakfast but went instead to the small café near the church. It served excellent coffee and croissants at very good prices.
It is about a 45 minute walk to the Guggenheim and a 20 minute walk to the medieval area. Both are well worth visiting on foot given the driving difficulties of the city. We would recommend this hotel for its location. I suggest though it would have to be a good GPS to find it!
