We stayed at the hotel for six nights and found all the staff really friendly and also really helpful. The location is adjacent to the river and close to the old town e.g. ideally located. We would stay again if we were to go back and I'm sure we will!

Great location and great price. Quirky decor. Free nespresso!! Lots of charm in the old part of town. Staff pleasing but could step it up a notch. (Don’t touch the AC control or they will tell you off...nicely but still). Do not expect a full service hotel, more likely a glorified pensione. Comfy ...

This hotel was perfect for our stay. Couldn't be easier to find as the airport bus stops outside. Room was immaculate and very comfortable. There is a minibar and a communal lounge area with coffee machine. Easy walking to Guggenheim, Bellas Arts, Riverside and other central areas such as Abando. ...

Back in the 1400s, Bilbao was a sleepy fishing settlement, but over the centuries it grew into one of Europe’s key port cities. And since the Guggenheim Museum opened in 1997, Bilbao is once again enjoying urban renewal and a resurgence in contemporary art and culture. You don’t need a fortune to enjoy the best of Bilbao. Enjoy a stroll around the Guggenheim, one of the best pieces of architecture of the 20th Century, then walk to Casco Viejo, the old town, which dates back to the 14th Century, and enjoy a tapas or two in one of the many bars in the beautiful Plaza Nueva. You’ll find a good selection of two-star hotels near the old town and along the central banks of the Nervión River.
You could pick a two-star hotel near Casco Viejo and have Bilbao on your doorstep, or you might prefer a B&B or guest house in Getxo or Santurtzi, nearer the coast and a stone’s throw away from the Portsmouth-Bilbao ferry terminal. Hotels across the city range from independent and unique places to stay to tried-and-tested brand name accommodation.
You might be in Bilbao for a bit of culture, and you’ll find plenty. Head to Bilbao’s Fine Art Museum on a Wednesday, and you can wander pass Gaugins and Goyas free of charge. And for a small fee for the three-minute funicular, you could enjoy real-life panoramas on Mount Artxanda. If you’d rather keep costs down, plan a walk along the river or through Parque de los Patos – Duck Park – or, if you’re feeling adventurous, hike out to the coast. The Northern Way walk takes you 67 miles to Santander, but you could just follow the path along the river to the coast and catch the bus back.
While you’re in Bilbao make time to soak up the convivial atmosphere: stroll the boardwalk in Abando near the Guggenheim, take in an evening music and lights show by the fountains in the Doña Casilda Iturrizar park then head back to your two-star hotel for a good night’s sleep.
