Huge rooms and bathrooms, convenient location near to Casco Viejo. Very pleasant stay! The Hotel is huge and has a breakfast buffet that has a lot of delicious stuff. The rooms were a bit hot, but they made up for that in convenience; it was nothing an open window on a cool day couldn’t fix.

We are a family of 4 and we always find it difficult to find a room for the 4 of us. The family room in the Hotel Gran Bilbao was the best yet. We had 2 large individual rooms, each room with two VERY comfortable beds. Each room had a tv and individual a/c controls. The bathroom was also very big and the jacuzzi shower was a total treat! Breakfast was a feast with everything freshly made you could think of! From fresh fruits, pastries, healthy and vegan cakes, smoothies, hot meals, freshly made tortillas and eggs, crepes, and waffles! Kids and adults loved it! The breakfast room was spacious and had a lovely view of a large bridge. The hotel has underground parking (€16/night) and it is located in the outskirts on top of a steep hill. It is a 10-minute walk to the old quarter (Casco Viejo) where we had lovely pintxos in one of the central squares. There is a bus that would take you there but we preferred to walk. The beautiful and more modern financial district with a fabulous walk by the river, architecture and the Guggenheim museum is a bit further away and I would recommend taking the car (underground car parks in the city center) or take a bus.
