A 4 star hotel for what it's worth. Functional and clean but nothing extraordinary apart from the lifts which were small and old. The room was a bit tight with a small window looking put on the concrete just behind. Not great but central

My husband and I arrived by bus and took the train to the stop 1/2 block from the hotel ( it was easy!). The hotel is located in a safe area ( we felt). It is surrounded by tapas bars, restaurants, shops, and pattiseries. It was a 15 minute walk to the Guggenheim (on the river walk) and a 10...

This is a surprisingly large well appointed and well-run hotel. Proper sized rooms and TV, garage too. And in a surprisingly good location, top tapas bar Irun, great restaurant Nido and a brilliant neighbourhood bar Gaztedi Berria just across the road. The main shopping street half a block away. OK the Guggenheim is a bit of a walk and the...

Enjoyed a very pleasant one-night stay in Bilbao at the Hotel Abando. Very well located for both the Casco Viejo and the Guggenheim. Comfortable room, good staff, good value. Didn't have breakfast - bit pricey at 16 Euro. 100m from the excellent Cafe Iruna.

We spent one night in Bilbao to visit the Guggenheim Museum. It was a lovely walk along the river, from the hotel. The room was very nice, but we could hear a baby crying in the next room. I always take ear plugs and wasn't bothered by it. The breakfast was a light buffet, but was tasty. A bar was...

we stayed there 3 nights during the Easter holidays. The hotel is in the city center, only 5 minutes walking distance from the old city, super location. The rooms are quite comfortable, the staff is polite and helpful and the breakfast quite good offering nice cakes and biscuits as well. We loved the Basco cake with milk cream they offered...

What can i say about this place apart from inpressed . The room is beautiful and would be considered a 5 star in many countries, not the 4 star it is actually rated as. The staff, although limited with English, were welcoming and were very helpful with advice around things to do and see in the area. Breakfast was excellent...

We slept only for one night in Abando Hotel, in the city center of Bilbao. The rooms are big, and the beds are confortable. The breakfast is pretty variate. It is located in the city center, so many restaurants and shops are nearby. A good choice!

This hotel is situated centrally, and leaves the major sight seeing areas within easy walking distance. There is a small park and restaurant filled street very close. The hotel is business class, and has all the typical amenities. The staff is very personable. The rooms are decently appointed, and fairly large. We had a double with 2 beds, and there...
