The Casco Viejo is a fantastic location if you are staying in Bilbao and these apartments are an excellent option. They are simple and have only microwaves as cooking facilities. But if you plan to be there only a couple of nights, they do the trick. We stayed four nights and shopped from excellent local shops for simple evening meals....

We had a very good stay here and it was inexpensive and very well located, but there are a few things to think about if you are usually a hotel person. Firstly, these is little or no contact with the owners. We arrived on a Sunday and had a rushed and blustery check-in and that was it for four nights....

Not cheap for a budget traveller, but Bilbao isn't cheap in the summer. I'd come back if I can't find anything else cheaper and in such prime location. Design is fresh and vibrant, without being sickly. Simple and elegant. French windows lead to a pedestrianised street, although vehicles, especially road cleaners, do pass by. It can get a little noisy,...

Comfortable spacious rooms, great bathroom, wonderful location. After check in however, we never saw anyone connected with the hotel, so ask all your questions at check in! We did get a good recommendation for our excursion to the countryside.

We usually go for hotels but tried this appartment as a change and we weren't disappointed. Well located in the old town, although hard to find initially; [ask them for the number on the street - no. 4, I think]. It was smart, clean, modern and spacious and the welcoming staff very hepful providing maps and recommended places to visit...

The location is perfect, in the old town, close to everything. You can walk everywhere in Bilbao, it is a lovely city surrounded by green hills, full of parks and lovely squares, and beautiful old buildings as well as fabulous modern buildings. We've had 3 nights and feel that's a good length of time. I was disappointed with the Suites,...

Perfect location in the old town. An easy walk from the train station, metro, restaurants etc. Our room was perfectly clean and very spacious, with a separate bedroom and sitting area that contained a couch, small fridge and microwave. Each room had a small window, however given the 1st floor location and interior facing window (small courtyard) there is limited...

We stayed at the Arriaga Suites in mid February. Our flight landed late and so we didn't arrive until 10.30pm and Maria was there to greet us. The location is perfect - right in the old town. Suite was great value, comfy, brilliant shower, fridge, hair dryer etc. Would highly recommend this for a short stay in Bilbao. Thank-you!

Stayed 3rd - 5th October. Wow, what can we say, we loved the Arriaga Suites and Ohianna. Great advice and communication before arriving in to Bilbao and also full of advice and suggestions when we arrived. We happened to meet Ohianna while out walking on the evening we arrived and she came over to us asking how we were and...
