We stayed for 5 days and had an family reunion. The rooms were beautiful and very clean. The service is fantastic and we enjoyed our stay very much. It is highly recommended And worth more than the 3 stars it has. We will absolutely come again!!

A quiet, modern and comfortable hotel, right on the river bank at Portugalete. A good (and cheaper) alternative to central Bilbao hotels. Reception staff were very helpful and welcoming. The rooms were clean and modern, but somewhat odd - three walls were plain, neutral beige, while the fourth was bright red and had lyrics from songs by the Fugees on...

We were in our motorcycle trip and choosed hotels carefully- not too pricy, parking, air conditioning and the view. So all of our demands were fulfilled. We took the room without breakfast, as there were so many coffees around us to have it. Location is superb - right next to the famous bridge. We actually tried all three ways to...

The hotel is very handy for the ferry terminal which is around 10 minutes easy drive away. It's in a lovely suburb of Bilbao - by the riverfront, near the interesting 'hanging bridge' (named for it's mobile suspended cable only despite the gruesome English translation of the name). It is a budget hotel - 3 star which is fair. The...

While we were traveling through Spain on a short trip, we happened upon the hotel. They were most helpful in finding us two rooms. The staff recommended places to visit, etc. The next morning we had an emergency and the manager was great. They extended our stay, interpreted to the paramedics, and were so concerned for our situation. If I...

Stayed here after arriving on the ferry from England. Easy to find and only 20 minutes from the ferry terminal. The hotel is right on the river and next to the historic Vizcaya Bridge – take a ride in the gondola car across and back. Easy to get into central Bilbao by metro, walking up to the local metro station...

Not too far away from the subway to go downtown Bilbao, quite a few restaurants in the neighborhood and above all next door to the Puente Colgante, a must take for only 0.80 euros round trip. Rooms are nice, especially on the last floor if you get a balcony.

Thank Tieum
