Fabulous apartment right in the centre of the old part of the city, light, bright & fully equipped with everything anyone would need. Luis had supplied provisions for our first mornings breakfast. Luis explained the area with maps and pointed out places of interest. My mother is unable to walk too far but everything was close to hand so this didn't prove a problem for us.
As with all city centre apartments there is a certain level of noise but this didn't bother us.
We would certainly recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to be close to everything.
Great location in the heart of the old city.
Luis was the perfect host. Left us drinks in the fridge. Gave us ideas of places to eat/visit. On leaving he even took our cases to his home and returned them to us at the airport bus stop for our evening flight home
A perfect gentleman.
Only problem was a very difficult door key.
The beautiful city of Bilbao is enhanced by the addition of the Guggenheim Museum of Art. The Bilbao river runs through the centre of the town and the promenades skirt the river and allow the residents and visitors lovely areas to walk and meet.
Architecture is fantastic and there are many restaurants and bars to relax and enjoy the local wines and Pintxos .
The apartment was clean, spacious and near places of interest and local hostelries. Both bathrooms were modern as was the kitchen.
Perfect for a long weekend.
Huge clean comfy apartment around the corner from the river, walking distance from the Guggenheim and tons of great restaurants. Two bedrooms plus two baths ensure plenty of space for friends and family yet privacy for all.
Only minor caveats are the usual issues with windows/privacy and street noise characteristic of apartments in lively urban areas. Luis is a gentleman, who stocked the kitchen with fixings for breakfast and afternoon tea.
We stayed two nights, planning to visit the Guggenheim and head back to Madrid. I’d been to Bilbao nearly 40 years ago, but never this charming historic part of the city.
Give yourself time here. If not, like us, you’ll be back—
Really enjoyed our stay in a well appointed apartment, Everything you need is on your doorstep, ie Museums, Bus services, Trams, Trains etc,the Owner Luis could not have been more helpful, he was always available if you needed anything,
If you want to experience true Bilbao then this is a must, the old town is amazing
And we will certainly return in the near future, to this apartment.
This beautifully furnished apartment in the heart of Bilbao's Old Town was a perfect location from which to explore the town. Lots of alleys to wander; lots of bakeries to stop at!
Luis was a wonderful, thoughtful host. He took time to orient us to the neighborhood and the city. Lots of maps and lots of great guides were available.
I would stay there again on any future trips to Bilbao. Five stars!
Set on a pedestrianised street corner in the Casco Viejo you feel in the middle of things. We didn't have much time but walked along the river, took the funicular to the Mirador and wandered around the market, we only saw the outside of the Guggenheim so we will need to return to this lovely comfortable flat. Luis Manuel A is a thoughtful and informative host and I don't hesitate to recommend this accommodation.
