Close to everything, situated in the old town and by the river. Lovely area! We parked on the big parking lot on top of the railway station, just 10 minute walk. They might have suggestions on alternatives and drop off luggage is probably possible. We didn’t carry much.

I have stayed in Petit Palace hotels in other Spanish cities and always enjoy them. This one was no exception. They each have their own style, a mix of old and new.

This one was great for walking around the Old Town, had lovely views, a delicious breakfast, and very helpful, multilingual staff (I've seen some of the other reviews, we certainly didn't encounter any rude staff) . Our room was very comfortable and clean. They offer little side extras like bicycles and MiFi to take out for the day.

The hotel was excellent and the staff were very helpful, especially Maria. The hotel asked to move us to another room for our last night as they wanted to start some works. The replacement room was a good upgrade and they gave us a free breakfast, Cava and chocolates for the inconvenience- would recommend to anyone- Bilbao is a great place to spend a weekend

Just got in the hotel and the reception area was very unwelcoming. The pictures on the wall were all crooked. Underneath the stairs was a stack of flyers and empty boxes. Carpet in need of vacuum cleaner. Small details that could make a huge difference! Once in our assigned room there was an odd smell, which I dealt with by perfuming the lamps with my cologne. The bed is comfortable and clean as is the bathroom. Furniture is beat up.

Stayed here for two nights during the BIME festival, and paid 277 euros. We were extremely disappointed with what was on offer. The actual room was small, and the connecting bathroom provided no privacy as the glass panel and door had gaps all along and provided no noise barrier at all. The shower wasn't the cleanest it could have been. Our biggest complaint was the smell of sewage from the bathroom which was absolutely awful. We did complain, but nothing was done to rectify there problem, and the receptionist blamed it on the proximity to the river. We didn't pay 14 euros for the extra breakfast, double the price of a decent breakfast in any of the surrounding bars. The towels were poor quality and cups of tea weren't cleaned from our first day to the last. If this hotel had been half the price, I might be able to understand.
