          The Hotel Carlton was a spectacular surprise. We wish we could have stayed more nights. Rooms appeared to be newly renovated and were large and comfortable.

          Excellent central location

          We booked a superior room for a romantic break but had two single beds pushed together!

        • Family with children

          Quite comfortable and large rooms

          Staff were polite, but did not go out for their way to help with things like restaurant recommendations/reservations.

          the position is perfect for everything and the feeling is very pleasant

          the position is quite noisy

        • Older travelers

          In addition to the perfect location on the main plaza in Bilbao, the room was comfortable, well equipped and clean, there were helpful staff and easy access to a computer in the business centre.

          The buffet breakfast was priced at nearly 20 euros/person which seemed excessive so we went elsewhere...

          location & comfortable

          The entrance plaform is only step stair. If it can be modified no barrier will be perfect.

          Beautiful building, inside and out. Friendly, efficient staff.

          We booked a double room, which I always presumed means a double bed. We were given a twin room, with two single beds. Reception staff, which were very friendly, explained a double room booked does not guarantee a double bed. Maybe this could be clarified for future bookings. Also, room service way, way overpriced! €12.50 for a poor toasted sandwich, this is not a complaint though! Fine hotel, but definately not a five star experience.
