Travellers' Choice

This hotel, situated near the Guggenheim Museum, takes its name from the traditional Indautxu district, in the very heart of the city, where the commercial and financial area is located. The building housing the Silken Indautxu Hotel, boasting a beautiful Bilbao-style exterior and a fully renovated interior, is an example of the binomial between tradition and modernity that defines the spirit of this unique city so well. 4-star hotel in Bilbao in an optimum location.

The Silken Indautxu Hotel is in an unbeatable location. It is a hotel in the very centre of the city of Bilbao, some 200 metres from the Indautxu metro station, a short 10-minute walk from the renowned Guggenheim Museum, and 15 minutes from the Abando and Concordia stations. It is 1 km from the San Mames stadium, and less than 500 metres from the airport bus stop.

The hotel is cozy and perfect for a family weekend. Great location to explore Bilbao, close to the metro but also to Guggenheim Museum, Fine Arts Museum, Gran Via... Breakfast is very good, with plenty of choice. And staff is friendly and helpful.

I stayed here for 3 nights and walked to all the sights in Bilbao. The reception staff were not very welcoming, but the room was a good size, with the usual bathroom toiletries. There were twin beds side by side and while one mattress provided me with a good night's sleep, the mattress on the other bed was not good and left me with aching ligaments the next day. The room was quiet and I was never disturbed by any noise during the 3 nights stay. The breakfast was very good, and the hotel café/restaurant 'Meat and Soul' had the best vegan burger I have ever eaten. The decor in the room was in good condition, but in the hallway outside it was not, with wallpaper coming off the wall in places. When I checked out the receptionist was very pleasant and sociable, much unlike the one on duty when I arrived. I must say that the catering staff and the cleaning staff I found to be very pleasant and it was just the receptionist on arrival who let the hotel down. Would I stay here again? Probably, despite its faults, for the quietness of the room and its convenient location.

Stayed in this hotel 2 nights, arrived midnight, no problem checking in. Friendly helpful reservation staff. Wifi available in reception area. Rooms spacious, nice bathrooms. Even had a kettle for a cuppa in the room. The breakfast was amazing, lots of choices. Fabulous location, a short walk to the river. Great place to base yourself.
