The only positive feature about this hotel was the location. It was 5 minsw from the Guggenheim, Abando subway and the Old Town.
Yes, the front reception service was very very poor. We only went to them if absoultely necessary. In the room there was no coffee/tea service, no iron, tv selection was not of good quality, there was no extra blankets in the room. Gym was just a small room. Breakfast would have cost 12 euro extra per day. It was definitely not a 4 star hotel. 3 at best.

we liked business atmosphere and breakfast.
room 102 noisy starting 5am with staff getting ready we assume on 2nd floor or adjacent. Generally hotel staff was not unfriendly but also not freindly. And I am fluent in Spanish.
We liked the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, the quality of the room and the food, plu s the very good location of the hotel
Pleasant Staff and Clean Comfortable Bedroom;and good restaurant facilities,together with good amenities.
Very helpful staff. Location is perfect close to pedestrian area, Guggenheim and old town. Big garage. Good breakfast. As a whole just perfect.
Very well located hotel, between the old town and the Guggenheim Museum. Both walking distance. Very freindly and helpful reception staff. Hotel garage available which is great, because finding parking space is almost impossible. Very nice room, beautiful bathroom. We had a room facing the courtyard, no view, but no noise either. Very quiet. Many restaurants around the corner and also a bar with the most delicious tapas. It is an excellent place to stay.
The staff was excellent offering great suggestions for things to do in Bilbao and places to eat. Location was convenient to Casco Viejo and numerous restaurants and cafes. Rooms were very well cleaned and maintained. Excellent place to stay in Bilbao. Breakfast had plenty of variety and was very good.
I liked the location. quite room like I asked in my booking, breakfast, clean room.
Bed litle bit hard and bedclothes coud be modern and better quality.
Proximity to old town,shops and easy walking distance to museums etc
Hotel front desk staff could have been more welcoming.Furnishing was a bit dated once you left the modernised lobby.More like a good 3 star hotel than 4 ster
Very well situated for Guggenheim Museum and old town, helpful staff and secure parking.
The hotel has a perfect location between the old town and the Guggenheim Museum. Breakfast was very good.
Comfortable and welcoming, five minutes walk to the main rail terminus for both Renfe and Metro services. All the main city attractions are walkable. Excellent Breakfast
I was not informed by the staff that using a PC at the lobby costs 6 eur/h. Had a surprise checking out.
Lovely room. The staff took note of my initial request for the room to have a window facing the street. The staff were very helpful and understanding when my girlfriend fell ill. The allowed us to remain in the room for a few hours after we were supposed to leave as we were deciding whether to go to hospital. Great room.
It seemed the air conditioning did not work.
