Nice, staff and accommodations, I would say that the location is the nicest part of the hotel. Amazing views of the museum from the rooftop restaurant. Staff was very pleasant too. Breakfast was different than the buffet you are offered in other 5 star restaurants. The menu that they give you every day was a bit limited. Overall a great stay.

Room tip: Great location

Indeed a "gran hotel" with excellent quality of service and good rooms although not particularly large. Our room looked out towards the Guggenheim (especially requested and paid for), which was great.
Staff is exemplary and helpful. We had to leave one day early because of life threatening illness of a family member and reception was so helpful that they even sent by post all the things that we in our hurry had forgotten.
We will come back to finalise our visit to Bilbao!

The hotel lobby was beautiful. Our room overlooked the Guggenheim, so that view was unbeatable. Our room was very large. The biggest negative was the bathroom. It was a totally open concept, meaning no door to the toilet area, the bath and separate shower were on wood slats with no door. The shower area itself was pinned in by the bathtub. The toilet seat was not a slow moving (quiet seat), so I am not sure when this bathroom was renovated if ever. We couldn't get the heat quite right, and we found the bed quite hard, both waking up with sore shoulders, etc.

The upper floor restaurant had a great view, and the staff were very attentive. The food was of high quality, and I got to have a green juice every morning. We did eat lunch in the Cafe, and it was fairly good as well.

The hotel was well located for both the old and new towns.

Gran Hotel Domine is expensive but worth the price if you want to splurge for a few days. We got a room with view of the Guggenheim. Puppy was across the street and the Gehry masterwork right behind. Beautiful day and night. The hotel is easy walk to the Museum of Fine Arts which has a great collection. (Better art than the Guggenheim) We saw the Isabel Baquedano show -- magnificent.

Room tip: Get room with view of Guggenheim

This is an excellent hotel conveniently located across the road from the Guggenheim museum. We drove there for a short break and the parking facility at the hotel was a bonus. Our room was spacious and had a view looking down into the internal courtyard. The breakfast terrace is lovely with views across the city and the Guggenheim. They also offered a lot of gluten free options which meant I could have something different each day, not common. We enjoyed some drinks in the bar one evening with some tapas and the atmosphere was great, along with the decor. The hotel is also a short walk to the main shopping areas, the old town and many restaurants and tapas bars. Would return here anytime!
