Easy access to everything: public transportation, attractions, and, yep, great tapas. Only three blocks away from tapas central-easy safe walk. Public transport around the corner. Clean, modern, and accommodating staff. Nice breakfast.

Hello, We had not realized how good public transit is from the Bilbao airport into the city. We booked this hotel because it was close to the car rental agency and we needed a night to recover from jet lag. We had a great one night stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel had a good menu... More

We chose this hotel because it was centrally located, within easy walking distance to the Guggenheim. Because of its location, it was also quite noisy. The free breakfast had enough choices. The room was medium-sized and had a view of the main street, it wasn't a tall building. The front desk personnel were friendly.

The Zenit Hotel in Bilbao is the perfect location for anyone interested in the sites of the city. The hotel sits across the street from the beginning/end of the tram line which will take you downtown, to the Guggenheim Museum or to a myriad of other interesting places. The staff at the hotel is exceptional! One of the young women... More

The rooms are clean with lots of amenities and the location is excellent and an easy walk to many attractions. I had a room near the elevator which was pretty noisy. Other than that it was a nice hotel with a friendly staff

Met most of my expectations for a quiet, convenient, reasonably priced hotel. Comfortable bed and very compact room. Bring your own wash cloth; none are provided. The in-room safe is too small to lock up a laptop computer. Ask for an inside room to ensure a quieter stay. Even still, the guest room doors are not designed to avoid slams... More

Nice, clean, well equipped and central located hotel. Easy to walk to the guggenheim museum and old city. The area is nice, quiet at night and very close to streets with great pintxos bars. It is good value for money. The hotel has a parking, but if it is full, you have to park at the streets. Not too expensive

We'd like to compliment Jose for the warm, friendly welcome to the Zenit after midnight recently...we had of course told booking.com that we'd be late in but Jose seemed to be genuinely happy we'd arrive in one piece. Despite this hotel room being above a busy street we heard and saw nothing until we woke refreshed at about 8am that... More

We stayed here for just one night. The room was clean, bath a bit rusty but generally room was fine. Slept well on comfy bed. It was quiet. Room service wasn't picking up though. Breakfast was nice although pretty standard. Honey and yoghurt was nice. The pre cooked eggs didn't look that appetising though. The bacon didn't look cooked properly.... More
