Just came back from a 1 night stay at the GHDB. What's to like: * Location: If you are a modern art lover and are visiting Bilbao, you're probably there to see the Guggenheim. The hotel is across the street from the Gugg, and our room overlooked the beautiful structure. Old quarter is about a 20 min walk away, or...

The room and bathroom was large. Great amenities with a nice breakfast up on the rooftop. BUT, the location of this place makes it well worth it. It is right across the street from the Guggenheim. Not a far walk to the old town area. Short distance to the mall and lots of great restaurants around. Staff was super friendly.

This a great hotel that is over the road from the Guggenheim and is 5star. Friendly staff well appointed rooms and amazing architecture in side. Each floor has a theme and I would definitely go back to stay. Very well located to access all the sights of Bilbao.

The hotel is located directly across from the Guggenheim Museum which is part of an easy walk along the river to old town. Our room and front desk service were without fault. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Bilbao.

This hotel is very convenient if you visit Bilbao to see the Guggenheim Museum, as it is situated just opposite the museum. Very useful, if it is raining, as happened to be the case, when we were there. Also the museum of fine Arts is in walking distance. The hotel is quite modern and has all the facilities of a...

We stayed here for 2 nights. The room was great. Location - literally across the road from the Guggenheim - perfect. And the staff (in particular, Imanol on the front desk) were constantly very helpful - thank you all very much!

We only stayed one night and we're given a spacious, comfortable room overlooking the Guggenheim. Great! Staff were really lovely, got an early check in, extra tea bags when we asked etc. All good. Sadly it rained. A lot. And the heating in our room didn't work and neither did the heated towel rail in the bathroom. So drying out...

100 feet from Guggenheim and great view of Guggenheim from several rooms. Even if you can't get one of these rooms, the view from the roof bar / restaurant is excellent. Rooms are all nice; breakfast buffet is great. Several good restaurants within walking distance as well. Public transportation is close by
