“Great hotel, great location”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

We stayed here for a couple of nights. The location is great just across the river from the Guggenheim. We had a superior room that looks out over the river and had a lovely seating area which in line with the other rooms has tinted glass (ours was pink!). The whole room was immaculate and the bathroom state of the art. There is an underground car park with lift access to the hotel.
If we were in Bilbao again we would stay here.

Room Tip: Get a superior room for the lovely seating area and the river views.

Just opposite the Guggenheim, on the river, is Hesperia's colorful facade. Superior rooms are facing the river and the Guggenheim and have a colored cubic bay with an arm chair in it. This was a great place to relax! The rooms look a bit strange depending on the bay's color. Mine was pink so the whole room was covered in pink. This looked nice on sunny days but was quite dar on cloudy days which you might face quite a lot in Bilbao.
Rooms are stylish and clean, and the breakfast buffet offers almost everything you can wish for. You have to order and pay it separately, though.
There is also a cool coffee bar on the ground floor which sometimes offers jazz concerts.

Room Tip: Superior rooms face the river and the Guggenheim museum

A fabolous place, great location pending on what you want to achieve, friendly staff, nice bar indoor as well as outdoors, color- & tastefull breakfast offering you a lot to keep you going for a long day. And located within walking distance from Guggenheim, the Fine art museum, the modern shopping city center and not at least close to the Old city. If you are lucky enough and get one of the rooms facing the river - then there is not a lot more you can ask for. Enjoy Hesperia Bilbao!

Room Tip: Ask for a room / suit facing the river

We stayed here for 4 nights with our 3 children in August 2014. Although the location is great in regards to the sights, we found this hotel to be way overpriced and well, just not so friendly. Correction: some members of the reception staff were too stressed and not too polite, not only towards us but several other guests. There is a reason there are available rooms here at all times!

Rooms are decent but small for the price. Breakfast is too expensive for what you get. The cafe has nice coffee and food.
We spent another 3 nights at another hotel in Bilbao that same week - cheaper - brighter - better atmosphere.

Stayed 1 night (2 adults + 1 child, 9 yrs old) on way to San Vicente. Tiny room, thin and rather uncomfortable mattress, tiny bath, for 109€. Was in a nice location and friendly staff, but there is better value to be had for sure elsewhere in Bilbao.

Stayed here for 4 nights from 11th to 15th and so glad I chose this hotel. Very centrally located and very close to the Guggenheim, funicular railway and only a short walking distance to the old town and city centre. We loved the modern design of the hotel, especially the coloured windows. We found the room to be clean, comfortable and spacious. We didn't eat breakfast at the hotel or eat at the restaurant as there were plenty other eating places close by and a small supermarket at the entrance to the funicular railway. We found the staff to be very helpful and check in and check out was a speedy process. I would definitely recommend this hotel for a trip to Bilbao.

Modern hotel with, good view, through colored windows, from the nice rooms towards the river. Perfect breakfast, buffet with lots of things to choose from. Great location close to Guggenheim museum, tram and a funicular. Short walks to the old town or the city center.

Room Tip: It's worth paying a little more to get a room towards the river, with the better view.
