“Exactly like the photos and more!”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Ana has created a beautiful apartment overlooking the picturesque Plaza de Santiago in Bilbao. The apartment had a fully equipped kitchen with stove, oven, dishwasher and washing machine. It was all was spotlessly clean, and recently fitted out. Everything worked very well, and Ana was readily available by email or phone if we had any issues or questions. In the morning, we could gently hear the bells from the Santiago Cathedral. We watched as two artisans did some repair work on the hand carved doors. We drank our coffee and croissants as we watched the locals and tourists walk by, stop to chat, or sight see in the plaza. The apartment was very private and sound proof, and so comfortable we found it sometimes hard to leave! It was like, "Why go out, when Bilbao comes to you?"
Ana was a gracious and helpful host, even though she actually works full time as well. Our train from Barcelona was unexpectedly (and very unusually) delayed, yet Ana met us at 2 am to let us in! Many thanks Ana, we loved it!

“Lovely apartment in Casco Vieja”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We loved the apartment. The location was great with views of the square below. A beautiful apartment in the heart of the old quarter of the city. Anna was very helpful and accommodating.

“everything we could have wished for!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The apartment was exactly as described - beautiful, comfortable,tasteful- the bread, fruit, yoghurt,pastries were very much enjoyed by us all over the next couple of days. We loved the bright airy feel to the place and watching life going on in the square below. Ana was attentive and helped us with our departure arrangements. We would love to return sometime. The only downside is a bit of noise from the square coming to life in the morning but easily sorted by closing some windows.

Where can I start describing our wonderful stay @ Ana's El Pisto?? If you have any doubts, forget them. We couldn't have asked for more.

As I started researching places to stay I asked many questions. Ana's responses were prompt & helpful. Where else do you get greeted at the airport & led back when you're staying at a bed & breakfast? That was so helpful & totally removed our fears about driving to the place.

The kitchen was well stocked both with food & utensils. Their renovation was beautifully done. The windows really reduce the street noise. The bedroom was airy & comfortable.

We walked the entire city easily. It's a great location.

While there, do make a reservation with the Bilbao Greeters. She gave us a wonderful tour, too!

We stayed here just for one night during our travel through the Basque county, and we liked t so much that we were sad that we weren't staying here longer. The place is literally right next to the cathedral, and has a really good view of the plaza! The apartment has a modern decor, and the host Ana certainly has very good taste in home interior and thought through everything :) The apartment has almost everything you need for a short stay - including sleepers in the bedroom, salt&pepper and herbs in the kitchen, and she'll even leave some pastries, puddings, and fruits in the kitchen! If you have a car, you'll need to park in a garage which is just a short walk away, but it wasn't much of a problem for us. We would definitely stay here again.
