I recently stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. It was not expensive, and some of the facilities were quite modest in reflection of the price. The breakfast was basic but quite sufficient. If you want a bigger feed while in Bilbao you only have to go next door to Berton or to any of the dozens of other great bars and restaurants round about. The shower in my room was small, with folding screens which were a bit flimsy. The floor of my room was squeaky, and that was even before I started enjoying lots of the Basque food around the city centre!
There were a lot more positive things about the hotel. The price was obviously a good feature, as was the location in Casco Viejo, the old part of Bilbao, just two blocks from Plaza Nueva. My room was in the middle of the hotel, and I barely heard the noise of the streets at night. The hotel staff were friendly and maintain security by generally keeping the hotel door locked, clicking it open when you appeared on the door step and pressed a button. I am not a cyclist myself, but noticed 2 bicycles for guests to use, a good idea.
The hotel is on a pedestrian street. However, taxis are available at a rank just around the corner on Plaza Arriaga, even at 08.30 on a Sunday morning when I was leaving for the airport. The fare was just over 25 euros, which did not seem bad if my memory of previous visits to Bilbao served me correctly.
