This hotel is superb. The rooms are spacious and luxurious. The staff are really helpful and friendly. Breakfasts and evening meals are produced by a top class chef. The outside views are spectacular and it’s about a 20 minute walk from the city centre Strongly recommended

Wanted a hotel with on-site secure parking. Hotel is comfortable and staff (especially Tatiana on reception) were friendly and helpful. Bilbao centre was within 15min walk of the hotel which was fine.

We were forced to stay in a hotel in Bilbao after a car breakdown during a bank holiday delayed our journey to our new home in Malaga province by 4 nights. It was the only hotel available that would take both us and our dog, Luna and we received a welcome pack of a bed for her, a bowl and treats too! We had bought meat for the friends we were going to stay with and so they offered their freezer to preserve it, they translated for us over the telephone when we needed to speak to the garage about our car repairs and allowed us to have our meal from the restaurant in our room too as we had Luna and couldn’t leave her for long. Thank you to all the staff for all your help and support this past week as it was a difficult time for us and you made it pass smoothly and with a smile. The room itself was incredible, super king bed, hot water all the time, good wifi and clean as a new pin!

This is my second visit to this hotel, this time a 3 night stay to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We arrived at 11pm. Check in was smooth but information on the hotel and facilities was not forthcoming (e.g. times of breakfast, dinner, WIFI, time bar closed, local recommendations etc). Room was very spacious, clean and shower worked well. Interesting wall mural. Walls a little thin so we could hear next door’s activities. We had dinner one evening and breakfast one morning. Both were very good, freshly cooked and well presented. We would recommend the salmon supreme. Super helpful waitress who recommended the local wine, which was delicious. Very thoughtful of the hotel to give us a bottle of fizz to celebrate our special occasion. We will be back to stay if we return to Bilbao. The hill is a great work out!
