In difficult times (Covid) we booked this hotel very late. Our group is quite demanding but everything the hotel offered was first class. The rooms were big and spacious, the food was excellent and the level of service from the staff and management was first class. Look forward to visiting again soon! 👍🏻

Stayed for our stop before catching the boat back to the UK. Lovely modern hotel with friendly staff and large dog friendly rooms. Breakfast was excellent. Ideally located close to the Tapas area and centre.

Dear PeteStott, Thanks a lot for the review. We are very happy to hear that you had a pleasant stay with us before catching the ferry back to the UK. Indeed we are very close to the Old Town, the tapas and pintxos area in the city. We are also happy to read that you stayed with your dog, since we are a pet friendly hotel, with special amenities for your furry friends. Looking forward to welcoming you in your next visit to Bilbao. Kind regards, Guest Experience Dpt.

Dear Stevenenhilde, Thank you very much for your feedback. It is great to know that this is the second stay with us, and we really hope that it will not be the last one! We see that you appreciated the efforts we are making with our hygiene measures; we take very seriously the safety of our guests and team. Regarding the comment of the emptiness of our rooms, due to governmental regulations in the frame of Covid-19, we have been obliged to remove severals items from the rooms, such as coffee and tea making facilities, toilet amenities, in-room brochures... We are confident that these measures will be temporary and soon we all will be back to normal. Kind regards, Guest Experience Department
