We stayed here the first night of a tour of Green Spain. We had a lovely room with comfy bed, lots of towels and excellent sleep quality. The hotel is located very close to the Guggenheim. We are mystified by the current craze for glass bathroom doors - what is that all about ?? Designed by a man clearly as...

Dear EPD, Thank you very much for your coment in tripadvisor. The rooms with the crystal colours are really beautifull and confortable. Regarding the bathrooms, the design is modern, normally in Spain we just have one door separating the bedroom and the toilet. The crystal of the door is opaque. The quality of our restaurant is really good, we are...

Excellent location. Easy stroll into Bilbao. Room s well presented and clean. Breakfast products good but organisation lacking e.g. coffee machines queues, orange juice always running out , ingredients for omelettes but no obvious omelette station/instructions. That said no hesitation in recommending hotel

This is the typical hesperia hotel from NH group. Small, clean and comfortable. Standard rooms with good breakfast and free wifi. Located at 10 minute walking distance from the Guggenheim Museum. Parking is available and spacers are really small though, avoid large vehicles.

Apparently this Hesperia hotel had changed hand to become one of the NH brands so it matches pretty much all NH hotels standards. We had an upgraded room with the river views but we found the green tinted glass to be actually disturbing as it cast this green tint throughout the room. Otherwise, the room was comfortable, large and nicely...

Top spot for staying in Bilbao. Very friendly and helpful at reception, excellent breakfast and comfortable well-stocked bar. Ideal location for walking around Bilbao, right on the river and 10 mins amble to the Guggenheim. Very highly recommended.

We had a wonderful two night break in Bilbao and stayed at the ideally located Hesperian Bilbao. We would like to thank all employees at the hotel but would offer particular thanks to Jose Carlos on reception who recognised our special occasion and treated us accordingly. Muchas Gracias Jose

This hotel is overlooking the river. It is across the bridge from The Guggenheim Museum and just a short walk to the old town. Everything was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was lovely-lots of tasty treats and local produce, even wine! The staff were fantastic. They actually looked liked they enjoyed their job and it showed in the form of a...

Excellent hotel for two nights in Bilbao. Located alongside the river and less than ten minutes from the Guggenheim, from the old town and from the nearest metro station. Sleek design, good rooms, but be aware that the river rooms with the nicest rooms take a lot of direct sunlight so get very warm and airco is only available later...

We stayed a couple of nights at Hesperia Bilbao. It's a nice hotel (clean and modern), with lovely and helpful staff, in a fantastic location. Good breakfast too! If you're in Bilbao (which is lovely) to see the Guggenheim and experience a little of Basque culture, this is a good place to stay. I have to leave a special thanks...

We had an overnight stay here. Just long enough to do a bit of a wander to the very nearby Guggenheim museum. Our room cost 110E which included two breakfasts. We also got the secure, underground parking which was 18E. I think parking was in addition to the 110E. You have to get a parking ticket validated at the desk...
