        • Location and free internet, very convenient for the Guggenheim museum. Generally very good hotel and historic and characterful building. In easy walking distance of guggenheim, reasonable price and the luxurious decoration.

          The old town, again, the reception desk was surly and unapologetic I was actually walking out the front door.

        • Fantastic location in Bilbao, very well positioned for museums and galleries and the best streets to have 'pinxos. The hotel position is wonderful and this continues in the grand lobby you get a friendly reception. Bars are in good walking distance and the staff is very kind.

          Other than the to and from airport thing we never took a taxi, the decor was a bit dated, breakfast was not available in weekend before 8am my trip was at 7.30.

        • Fantastic city centre location and other museums. Overall a very comfortable hotel and beautiful building. Not far from old town and within easy walking distance of all the main sights.

          The price was unbelievable low for the quality received, the service over all was disappointing and the bed was a little lumpy and uncomfortable. The tiny bar was also tucked away down one of the dreary corridors.

        • The location was fabulous and our room was large and pleasant, located on a side street off the square. The hotel was beautifully appointed, staff were helpful and bed was v comfy and the bathroom was huge. The bar service was great and breakfast was also very nice.

          Spa center is very small, the decor in the lobby and lounge area is a bit dated.

        • The location was perfect and hotel interior very nice and rooms were of a good standard as can be expected of a 5 star hotel. Staff were very helpful and the bed was very comfortable. The restaurant was very quiet.

          Bathroom not clean, no real spa no real cosy bar / and the breakfast / dinner is VERY expensive here, and in my opinion not worth. Gym is quite small and not terribly inviting ….
