The first room we got smelled like cigarettes even though the property was smoke-free. We did get a new room. However, the shower wasn’t cleaned throughly. Soap scum was visible on the wall and shower floor.

The Abando is located close to typical Spanish / Basque bars for tapas and drinks. It is also within walking distance of world class restaurants. Casco Viejo, or Old Town, is a 10 minute walk away and offers cuisine and history. The Grand Via, Bilbao's premier street for shopping and walking/relaxing is directly around the corner. But yet, with all that is going on around it, the Abando is a nice quiet stay with excellent staff and an excellent breakfast.

Perfect location. Modern and very spacious room. Superb. Very clean and comfortable beds. The room even included masks (covid-19) and hydroalcoholic liquid for you to carry. The bars just next to the hotel offer an amazing breakfast for less than 3€ per person. Very close to the pintxos area to go eat something in the evening.
