NH is becoming my favorite hotel chain in Spain. (Has excellent experience at NH Viapol in Seville a year ago, too.) Inexpensive but feels like luxury hotel four times as expensive. Check-in staff very nice to our four-year-old, gave him a red teddy bear he now loves. They had to deal with obnoxious ...
This is a wonderful choice in bilbao, great location great restaurant and very comfortable rooms
the hotel has high concern for the disabled - the hotel has ramps, breakfast counters are accessible for people on wheelchair and even the coffee machine has braille markings!
very helpful staff. They made suggestions and provided directions
Spacious room with sitting area, nice bathroom with tub and separate shower. Mini-bar was there, but not working in my room—perfect location in Bilbao—walkable to everything.
Rooms quaint and older style clean and resonably comfortable. Some issues with lack of air con on checking in, but this was resolved.
Good location within easy walking distance of main sights and shops. Ideal for short trip.
The friendliest staff I have met. Breakfast was an experience of its own every morning. Can’t ask for anything more
It was generallly a good value for the money, with a good location
Dive into Bilbao’s shipbuilding past at the Maritime Museum, located in an old dry dock in the Abandoibarra neighbourhood.
The Maritime Museum opened in 2003, and occupies the old dry dock of the former Astilleros Euskalduna shipbuilders. This neighbourhood was once a thriving area for the maritime and shipbuilding industries, and the Maritime Museum tracks the huge changes that have happened here and in the rest of Bilbao since the dry dock area was renovated in the late 1990s.
The Maritime Museum is open 10am to 6pm Tuesday to Friday, and 10am to 8pm at weekends. Like many Bilbao museums, it is closed all day on Mondays. The nearest Metro station is San Mames.
Hotels near the Maritime Museum make a great base in Bilbao. Many of the city’s other popular attractions, including the Guggenheim Museum and the Parque de Doña Casilda de Iturrizar, are just minutes away. For a room with a view, look for hotels that overlook the Nervión River, or to be in the heart of the city centre look further east, around the Indautxu, Moyua and Abando areas.
For accommodation in a historic part of town, cross the Nervión into the Casco Viejo – the Old Quarter. It’s an atmospheric neighbourhood with some great-value hotels and B&Bs, and Bilbao’s Metro network will get you to the Maritime Museum with ease.
The Maritime Museum is based in the Abandoibarra neighbourhood, which used to be the old dry docks. Today it’s known for its lush green parks, and cyclists and joggers rub shoulders on its boardwalks. Once you’ve visited the Maritime Museum, soak up the sun on a bench and enjoy the people-watching opportunities.
