lovely Basque people- but how can you have hotel with not even a machine for coffee or a kettle in the room? No breakfast available of any kind, and no cafes are open in the area until way after 9.30am. This is a place badly in need of a renovation and theres no lift. Walls to the room I has...

I really like the location. It is situated to a walk distance of the main attraction of Sevilla. In addition is it just across the street to most of the shops and the to a Huge Corte Ingles. The room was huge and the bed was really confortable. The breakfast was perfect

This hotel was exactly what we were looking for - great location with views of the river and the old town with lots of great bars and cafes nearby. Having lived and worked in Spain for years I am quite used to the buildings being a little noisy but bring ear plugs if you think this will be an issue...

The Hotel Ripa is ideally located by the river in the heart of Bilbao, a ten minute walk to the Guggenheim and five minutes to the old town. There are plenty of nearby shops, bars and restaurants. The Hotel is accessed from the street but all the rooms are on the first floor where the reception is. It seems to...

Good: - Hotel strategically located between the old town and the new town (economic center). - We received keys for the room and the main door of the building to enter and exit at any time (open 24 hours). Bad: - Necessary to go up to the second floor by stairs to reach reception (it was not a problem for...

This little hotel is just on the riverside and is fantastically situated at just 5 minutes from the Guggenheim Museum and also from the "Plaza Nueva" - the antique part of Bilbao. It is certainly worth what you pay - it is basic but also very clean. There are not many rooms available with views over the river and in...

This hotel is just perfect. Nice location close to the train station and on the canal. Very clean, room are large with good bed. The best for a short stay. Walking distance to the famous museum but almost the main attractions, shops and restaurants.

This is a small hotel located along the river just outside the old town. It is very basic habitation with few amenities, unless you want to count the bed bugs. I awoke the second night itching all over. There were raised welts in patterns of three all over my face and body. I went to the pharmacy and the pharmacist...

Well, we stayed at Hotel Ripa for two nights after booking through another website and not reviewing trip advisor! That was our first mistake. We had a rental car and on the website it says you can park for 10 per day with a reservation. I emailed the hotel about 5 days before we arrived to book and never got...

Hotel Ripa is situated on the river, ten minutes walk from the Guggenheim, a quick stroll over the bridge to the old town, and about ten minutes walk from the central shopping district. Bus stops and trams stops very near by as is the main train station. We stayed from Monday to Thursday and we found the hotel good for...

“Try to get a room with a view to the river (Ria del Nérvion). You will be facing the old town and have a great sight on one of the busiest brigdes (Puente del Arenal).”

“You can request a river view room but it will be very difficuilt if you are in an individual room as their is only one available in the whole hotel.”
