“A very good city hotel”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

This modern building is located at -short- walking distance from the Guggenheim Museum, in front of a large shopping mall.
The reception is efficient and kind. Rooms are clear, with a large bathroom. Prefer rooms on parkside; from lower floors on streetside, one hears the tramway.
Rich choice at breakfast and excellent "Q" restaurant.
The prices are generally very decent.

This is an excellent hotel in many ways. It is convenient, modern and with excellent staff and facilities. The rooms are very nice with huge bathrooms and the outdoor pool and sauna were a great way of relaxing. The gym looked very professional but we did not use it. There are very minor issues that would be resolved with some TLC but this in no way detracted from an excellent facility and service. I would recommend it highly.

We had a week long break in Bilbao to visit such places as the Guggenheim and this hotel was very nearby. The design inspired by Mexican sculptor Chillida is really spectacular and an exciting place to stay. The hotel needs some TLC but this does not detract from the splendour of the hotel and rooms. A free heated outdoor pool, gym and sauna on the sixth floor are great places to relax in after slogging all over this wonderful city.
The staff are all very helpful and were available for advice on where to eat at reasonable prices. Rooms are large with great bathrooms and good views. Would recommend it highly for a city break.

Nicely designed, well located, comfortable beds, nice bathrooms with good showers, big selection and excellent quality for breakfast and all this at a very reasonable price. The rooms are nicely sized, bright and with very pleasant outlook especially from the higher floors. Conveniently situated a short walk from Guggenheim and near the tram stop that takes you to the old town.

So much going for this hotel - great location (right by the river, quick walk to the Guggenheim, close to shopping, walking to many great bars), comfortable beds, and an amazing breakfast buffet. The bathroom was spacious and open - loved that they had a separate walk-in shower and bath.

My favorite was the breakfast buffet - for 16 euros, had an amazing assortment of meats, cheeses, champagne, churros, eggs, pastries, yoghurts, fresh juices, coffee machines, caviar, pate, and so much more.

This hotel is just perfect, it has a huge bedroom and bathroom and the staff are friendly, helpful and made us feel very welcome.

It is close to every attraction in Bilbao, we stayed here and it rained for 3 days but that did not phase us, the city is perfect and the hotel is so close to the Guggenheim we would just walk past it four or five times a day. What a place!

Don't hesitate, book this hotel and you won't be disappointed. The cleaning staff are great, the room looked immaculate every day!
