Great location. Short bus trip from airport and train station. Train station also walking distance. Hotel centrally located for shops and main tourist attractions. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room and bathroom were spotless and spacious.

Old charming hotel in Bilbao centre : good location and great hotel. Also a good breakfast with many choices and fresh orange (i appreciate when most hotels are choosing awful industrial juices without any vitamins). Of course : Bilbao is a "must" step in Spain with the wonderful Guggenheim museum
