This hotel has become Bilbao’s best and not only for the number of stars it has. The Silken chain really worked on this building, that expresses the most modern and contemporary elements, with unique details that make it really special.
The entrance to the atrium is a wonderful feeling. It opens like a great free space and it is dominated by a great sculpture of Mariscal: a Fossil Cypress made of stone that ascends to 26 meters from the ground to the skylight in the terrace. This is how the place manages to bring in natural light in the atrium space.
The interior of the bedrooms also shows an exquisite design. Each room has a personalized style that makes them different from each other, besides the comforts offered by a hotel of this class.
I had the opportunity to visit the hotel for a family wedding and it was incredible: the food is exquisite and you can have an appetizer and drink in the terrace with wonderful views to the Guggenheim!
The hotel is just five minutes from the old town and well connected, although I think that it's a little on the edge, because it's worth its 4 stars as it shows the great quality they offer in their services. The rooms have WIFI, air-con, minibar, phone, safe, spacious bathrooms with bath tubs or columns and are also bright, furnished in a modern style and decorated in warm colors. The hotel has an auditorium!
It is worth going to the center of Santurtzi to enjoy the beautiful views of the Abra Bay, especially from the Palacio de Oriol, an elegant and famous building that evokes an era where the Bay of Biscay became an exclusive summer place for rich and bourgeois families.
Today all of us mortals can go and enjoy these places. Today, the beautiful building from the end of the 19th Century is a modern NH hotel. If you are not staying there, don’t worry, because you can enjoy its beauty from the bar or restaurant, walking around it admiring its excellent viewpoint.
I left the car in the lower part, near the port and I felt like going up the steep slopes to reach this place where, besides the palace, there are various impressive buildings, gardens and parks that make they walk more enjoyable, with great views of the ria and the Biscay Bridge.
In the palace’s garden, there is a stand with tourist information as well as the San Juan de Dios Hospital. It is a beautiful walk with magnificent views!
In privileged surroundings, in the middle of nature and very closet o Bilbao, you will find this hotel. It is a place with an intense and accidental history, passionately narrated to us by Vicky Urretxa. If you have the chance ask her to tell you the story, you will be surprised by her knowledge. She is an amazing person.
The hotel counts with all kinds of commodities for the demanding traveler. It has spacious rooms, a pool, good service, nice details and a Picht & Putt golf course, to name a few characteristics. The rooms are all different, luminous and cozy. Even the standard rooms are above average.
An element to highlight: the gastronomy. It is hard to please a group of travel bloggers like us, but the brunch they offered us was exceptional.
We booked into this hotel nearly a month ago, and liked it. There were several good things: the room was spacious, with good views. Breakfast was one of the best we've ever had. There were plenty of options, and someone was always on hand to replenish the food. The location was good, on the main road, and close to most sites of interest. However, there were some strange things for a hotel of this size, for example bad wifi in the rooms. We were willing to pay but the signal quality was terrible. Maybe we were just unlucky. Also, the service was a bit lacking sometimes - they didn't know when our room would be ready, but they were happy to let us store our bags while went for a walk.
We arrived to the Etxegana Hotel and the first thing that surprised us was the majesty of the building. The brick and wood warmly welcomed us, together with the kind staff.
Once inside the building we were seduced by the details: the carved wood that reminded us of faraway lands captured our attention, just like when you land in a foreign country and you can’t stop looking everywhere with open eyes.
We left our things in the room, which are spacious and luminous, and we went to different places of the area. We came back for dinner, which was more like a tasting of pleasures, with local and foreign influences.
The restaurant is spectacular. If you come here you mustn’t miss it, and don’t forget to pay attention to all the details. The calm night gave us the chance to rest. The peak was the breakfast we ate the following morning (accompanied with juice, fruit, bread and coffee) next to the balcony that offered us great views. You can also enjoy the views from outside if the day is nice. It’s really impressive.
Our stay was a magical one, without a doubt, in a privileged location. I definitely hope to go back there.
Whenever I go to Bilbao for work, I stay at the Hotel Ibis Bilbao, which has a good location and a metro station near the hotel. On Sundays, I usual opt to dine in the hotel, at the Etxaniz restaurant, and it never disappoints. The menus aren't bad value (there is one for 19 € and one for 24 €) and the food is pretty good quality. Moreover, it changes with the seasons. Last time, I had grilled young asparagus with cheese, followed by monkfish over rice with mushrooms. For dessert, ice cream. All stunning. As it was Mother's Day, they offered some chocolate hearts. I recommend it, especially if you want a quiet, comfortable, Sunday dinner, when many restaurants are closed.
The super nice apartment had everything. There were four of us and it was ended up pretty cheap at 23 euros a day. It was next to the metro and Bilbao's Old Town pintxos made you want to stay and live there. The girl who brought our food was very nice and explained everything we wanted to know about Bilbao. The apartment also has info of Bilbao free wifi was very useful to us. An easy place to recommend.
I loved the Bilbi Hotel. A friend of mine recommended it to me and I’m glad she did.
It is a simple and well located hotel. It is close to everything (you can walk to almost anywhere from there). I had read that the neighborhood was not the best, but we had no problems. In every city there is a tricky neighborhood, but if you’re careful there is no problem.
The hotel is reformed and it’s fantastic. The bathroom is new (the most important thing for me!) and the room has a nice decoration, simple but modern. It has a nice wallpaper and a silver headboard that I really liked.
The beds are comfortable (I guess they’re also new). The room is very clean.
I recommend it to everyone: young people, older people, travelers and lovers.
This is a good hotel with an excellent location. It's next to the river and from the window of our room, we could see the Guggenheim. Our room was nice, spacious and comfortable. The service was generally good, but a bit stiff, which is normal.
A great, central hotel. If you stay in it, you'll have no need for the car. It's a 5 minute walk from the Guggenheim. 2 minutes from Ledesma Street, where there are plenty of tapas bars and Abando Metro Station, which takes all over. It is 15 minutes from the Museum of Fine Arts. It is perfect for sightseeing.
About three or four years ago, I spent two nights at this hotel on business. The hotel is located close to San Mames Stadium and the central bus station, Termibus. In the vicinity are also bus, metro and tram stops, so it's very well connected to the rest of the city. The room, without being anything special, was not bad. It has a restaurant, but only serves breakfast and lunch. I arrived at night, so I had to go elsewhere for my dinner. The service was good.
There aren't many cities in the world as amazing as Bilbao. Its contrasts, its cuisine, its elegant combination of the past and the cutting edge ... it's irresistible, and here at the Mir Hotel, they will do their best to help you discover the city.

Good hotel. Comfortable and well-located, five minutes walk from the Guggenheim, and 10 minutes from the old town. They have a restaurant and cafe, and the rooms feature all the comforts you'd expect; my bathroom was very big.

What I can say about this 5 star hotel in Bilbao's best area? Well all good things. A couple of years ago my parents celebrated their silver wedding anniversary there, and since then we usually have a snack on the hotel terrace. Architecturally, it's amazing (by the Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta, inspired by Chillida sculptures), and although I've stayed there, I'm sure it's a blast.

Great hotel in the centre of Bilbao
The truth is that this is a hotel that is ideally located near the bullring and just minutes from the shopping area. Perfect for both business and leisure to explore the city with your family and / or friends. The rooms are spacious and are very well kept, plus they have a great breakfast and their guests are treated incredibly well. It is a hotel that I recommend visiting.
Ellauri Hotel in Zeanuri is one of the better known hotels of the area. The elegance and good service will welcome you when you get there, but you will be most surprised by the views.
When I arrived to the bedroom I was hypnotized by the balcony that gives a lot of light to the room and allows amazingly beautiful views. Another strong point is the gastronomy; both the breakfast and dinner were fabulous.

This has a very central location, close to all the city's services. They have free wifi, tea and coffee, and if you ask, the managers will give you the chance to join their organised trips and excursions. The price is fantastic, around 20 euros for one night, with breakfast included. There are rooms from 2-12 people, so if you want to visit Bilbao with a group of friends, this is a good choice. They have heating and security cards, bunk beds, and storage lockers for your luggage.
There are few things as pleasant as a drink on the terrace of the hotel El Puerto, watching the boats in the Mundaka Harbour. The villa is lovely and its charm lies therein that it is next to the sea and that you can go there at any time of the year. The Hotel El Puerto is not only a great location but is the center of social life of the village. Of late family fills that are installed on your bar to taste With great tapas. Renovated a few years ago, has small but immaculate and very comfortable. If you call early enough, book a room overlooking the harbor. I assure you will not need to leave: From the little balcony rooms have seen all the old port of Mundaka. The fishing village is usually quiet, except from September to October, when we celebrate the championship of surfing. Then the hotel El Puerto is filled with the cream of world surfing.
Patxicoren is the first house we found when we got to Urigoiti neighborhood. We stayed there the second night we spent there.
The house has many highlights: the surroundings, the spectacular views from the patio (and from the windows in the rooms), the kindness of the staff that helped us with everything we needed.
The rooms are spacious, peaceful and luminous. Both the breakfast and dinner were also spectacular. We could tell they prepared it with love and effort.
Ercilla is an overrated hotel that doesn't deserve its 4 stars. Yes, it's located in the center of Bilbao, and you can walk everywhere, but the rooms are old and some even have broken furniture. You're presented with a list of movies that aren't available, as the remote control only has buttons for volume and channel. The gym is terrible. The walls are paper thin and you can hear everything, and there were cobwebs on the ceiling. We'll never go back.
