      5.0

      Location was good

      The rooms were dirty, very musky smelling and poorly maintained. The shower system was ridiculous and the curtains were filthy!

      Location

      Bathroom shower showed signs of leakage and dry rot.

    • Family with children

      You cannot park to unload baggage we drove for an hour and nearly crashed trying to go up a pedestrian street. The police asked us to move after the reception told us to break the law. Do not stay here if you have a car. Disaster

      It's awful awful awful

    • Couple
      6.6

      The Hotel is nice and in a good position. Maybe from the pictures it seems a little more than it really is, anyway good value for money.

      Bad smell in the room, shower got blocked up and when water went away hairs and some dirt stayed. No proper heating (a very old air- conditioner was there and was supposed to warm the room..and it is supposed to be an Hi-Tech hotel...).

    • Older travelers
      9.2

      Excellent location in old town near shopping and restaurants, friendly staff, right next to Tram and Metro stops.

    • Older travelers
      5.4

      This is in a great position to the city centre - The breakfast room upstairs is a lovely room.

      This has obviously had a cheap makeover and the fittings seemed tired and worn and the hall carpet stained and dirty. It has the feeling of a busy hostel.

    • Single
      8.2

      The Hotel was centrally located on the river in Bilbao's 'Old Town' which was a great location to navigate the city. There was no parking which was a little bit of an issue when renting a car, the public parking garage was nice with an elevator, which was about 200 yards from the hotel.

      I thought the bathroom shower could have been a bit nicer, the tile needed re-grouted and the shower heads replaced.

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      The hotel is in an excellent location and good hearty breakfast. Room design is not to my taste as it's confusing with an exercising bike taking up the precious space. Room interior decor is tired and dated, the theme should be on comfort and home environment as it ‘s an extremely old building. The bathroom basin is tiny and water will spill on the floor and half the water outlets on the hydro spray shower are not work and the controls were difficult to operate. We enjoyed the three- day visit to Bilbao and the young hotel staffs are helpful.

      the location and the servicethat the hotel don

      that the hotel don't have parcking

    • Family with children
      8.8

      This old, refurbished hotel has a terrific position, at an entrance to the Casco Viejo, but giving on to the theatre square in front of the bridge over into the 'new' town. The views from the corner rooms (we had the best, on the fifth floor) are just terrific; the beds are good, the staff are lovely.

      The refurbishment is quite peculiar. It is clearly a building with very old foundations, and it features an amazing inteiror brick spiral staircase which has characterfully worn wooden steps. There are exposed wooden beams throughout, but whoever remodelled choose to put in crappy new fake wood floating flooring, which just feels fragile, and really peculiar over-gadgeted multi-jet shower cubicles. Also the advertised free bikes no longer exist.

    • Family with children
      7.8

      The location was good for the old quarter (casco viejo) and 2 minute walk to Placa Nueva for pintxos. It was convient for railway station and there is also a modern tram stop nearby which took you directly to the Guggenheim (~7mins).

      There was absolutely no parking - not even for dropping off luggage. We were a bit crammed into a little room which was rather too small for 3 single beds.

    • Older travelers
      6.6

      Room was good and travelling with a dog thought it a nice touch that they supplied dog bed and bowls with no extra cost.

      Bar and lounge area could not be accessed as it was advertised but behind a locked door.

    • Family with children
      7.8

      The staff were very courteous and helpful, and spoke good English. The location of the place is also very good.

      The price seemed higher that it should have been. There were a few minor issues with the room but none that we felt like making a fuss about so in fairness we did not give the hotel a chance to correct any of them. The only real gripe I could have - I did not get my wake up call.

    • Family with children
      7.0

      Location and staff are excellent. Great takeaway pizza (Pizza Via) nearby. Kids playground across the street. Parking garage (Arenal) close and convenient.

      Tries to be upscale but does not achieve. Not best value for money.

    • Family with children
      7.8

      Excellent location and very helpful staff.

      Be careful about driving to hotel for picking up parking reservation at nearby public lot as all areas around hotel are pedestrian and I almost got a ticket from the police as the gps sends you into pedestrian area. Room was a bit cramped for 4 people but it is Europe.
