    This is a business hotel not a leisure one. The swimming pool outside is right by the main road, which has a lot of traffic, so that's not ideal to relax. The hotel has recently been completely renewed so everything inside is new and clean....More

    This is not a hotel for holiday and pleasure. No outdoor place or serving. The pool is ok, but With too strict regulations of all kind. Rooms are Nice, but no view to the beautiful Bilbao. The city is more Nice and interesting.More

    The Occidental is very fresh and contemporary with a wonderful health club and pool. Located above the old city walking down is easy, but if you are tired after touring walking back up can be challenging. The staff was very helpful and all were multi-lingual.

    It really isn't that expensive and as for the advice of taking the bus and metro to get there, I wouldn't recommend it, the metro is a bit confusing. Sharing a taxi won't be expensive and will be way simpler.

    I parked there and there was at least 3 metres clearance in the garage. Not sure what the height limit was though.
