I would recommend this charming family-run hotel to anyone during their stay in Bilbao. First and foremost, Arriaga is in a great location-- right at the corner of the old town and a walking distance from just about anything in the city. We felt very safe walking home at any time of the day. Secondly, the facility was kept very... More

The room was clean, the bed was ok. But for the price we paid the qualitiy of the bed was really good. The two armchairs in our room were too old, a change would be necessary. The hotel is located very close to the old part of the city, where you can find a lot of nice places and great... More

We found this gem of a place to spend our night in Bilbao the weekend of the carnival. Its location was the first of many appeals. We were within minutes of the heart of old town, conveniently near the Plaza Nueva where the carnival concert was happening. The hotel was able to accommodate our car at a modest extra charge....

We found the hotel on the internet. The hotel is perfectly situated on the corner of the old town with all its restaurants and night life. The city centre is only a couple of minutes walk away, and the tramway stops right outside the hotel and will take you directly to all the interesting places to see in Bilbao, including... More

We enjoyed our stay in this small city hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is situated near the city centre. And a car park is situated beneath the hotel.The room was clean and comfortable.

Perfectly located for everthing in Bilbao on the edge of the old quarter and on the bus and tram routes. An easy walk along the river to the Guggenheim. Parking on site and open wifi was generally fine. Unbelievably good hosts who run this family establishment- friendly and helpful. A little bit different; the host's elderly family are about and...

Second time we stay at this hotel in the middle of Bilbao. For us the big plus is the parking attached to the hotel. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are small but convenient and clean and the price is right. We wanted a room with the view, of course we had the street noise. However, there... More

Pros - Great location on the outer edge of the old town over looking the river. Comfy beds, good WIFI, freshly decorated, modern and very clean. The apartment was spacious. Con - no air conditioning so not a lot of ventilation in the apartment

Located opposite Arriaga theatre; if driving pull into space just past theatre, hotel is across street on second floor, push the bell to unlock door, reception upstairs, very friendly staff with perfect English. Get a room in back if you need quiet. An easy pleasant walk along river to Guggenheim. Hotel is in old town, lots of great tapas bars.... More

I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Arriaga. Located in the old town, the hotel is a 10 minute walk from the train station, and there is a tram stop just outside their door. The location can't be beat!
