My wife and I stayed at this hotel early September 2016 for 3 nights, basically as "base camp" for visiting Bilbao. It's a short 10min walk to the metro station and from there 20min to downtown Bilbao. To leave the car in the hotel garage is a little pricy but without real alternative. The room we were given overlooked the... More

Small, quiet, hotel, tastfully decorated. Nearest metro station at 10 minutes walking distance. The metro takes you in 20 minutes to the very centre of the city. Very friendly and highly professional staff. Stunning views.

The hotel and room are lovely, though at first we were disappointed that this location is quite a distance from Bilbao and the hubbub associated with basque villages. So, if you are looking to be within a stones throw of Pinxtos bars this is not the place for you. However, within 1 mile of the hotel there is much to... More

Not only is this lovely hotel with friendly staff but they have a great brasserie downstairs with good mix of local and visitors. Dining is relatively inexpensive for the style / grade of the hotel. I would definitely stay here again. Note that Getxo is a suburb of Bilbao.

Like many people we stayed here for one night after taking the ferry to Bilbao. There was a good underground car park where we left our car while we took the metro (very cheap) into central Bilbao. Getxo has the feel of a holiday resort and we enjoyed the hotel. We had a comfortable room and a good dinner after... More

There are very few hotels in quaint little Getxo, but this is the finest! I was only there one night, but my husband was there on business for most of the previous week. He really liked the place! Very comfortable, great food, excellent service.

Loved this hotel: a historical house with a large balcony overlooking the waterfront. Getxo it's a very special place to stay when visiting the Basque Country. Just minutes away from Bilbao and the Guggenheim but with the charm of a little village. Our room was very spacious and had a great view. Staff was incredible and the restaurant was very... More

Very nice hotel in one of the best places in Bilbao. The hotel is looking the Bilbao port, having only a pedestrian way in front. I had a room in the third floor with 4 windows looking the sea, excellent. The hotel has also a nice garden where we had a couple of beers. Excellent place to stay. There are... More
