Iturrienea Ostatua is just Charming with a big C. A cosy hotel with great atmosphere in a historical building but with all modern comforts. And with super cool staff/patrons. I met 3 of them, all really welcoming. The room was quiet, tidy and the bed very comfy. This hotel is located in the heart of the old town with lots of restaurants around. Highly recommended!

My wife and I stayed at Iturrienea Ostatua for 3 nights in September, 2019. The staff (Hai, Manu, Francisco) were friendly and helpful. Located on Calle Santa Maria (in the Old Town), one can find many tapas/pintxos bars and restaurants nearby. It's also not far from Plaza Mayor where more tapas/pintxos bars are found. Our room (No. 1) was nice, and the twin beds were comfortable. The wi-fi connection was good. If you are sensitive to street noise, request a room not facing the street. (I used ear plugs since the bar hoppers (?) were noisy late night - but quiet after 11 pm.) Without knowing the situation, I reserved a room with a balcony facing the street. Other reviewers, however, liked it.) Since there is no elevator, and all rooms are on the second floor, ask the staff to help with your luggage if you need. They offered their helpful hands to us. Be aware that the office closes at 6 pm (until 8 am.) We had our breakfast there every morning (open at 8:30, € 7) - it's not a buffet type, but you can get coffee/tea as much as you like. The price was very reasonable, and we enjoyed it. We took a tram to get to the Guggenheim Museum. The tram station is only 2-4 min. away. (One can get to the museum by walking along the river for about 20 min.) We would return to Iturrienea Ostatua to enjoy more tapas/ pintxos.

Love the character and charm of Iturrienea Ostatua. It was very clean and quiet. The bedroom was modern with a very comfy bed, and the shower was modern as well. After a long day of walking around, we looked forward to coming back to the quiet, peaceful room. Iturrienea Ostatua is located on the second floor, and there is no elevator. The location is perfect. Located in the old town of Bilbao, close to lots of restaurants and shops with easy access to the Metro. Our host Daniel was very welcoming, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. He gave us very good recommendations on where to eat locally in the old town. We ate at both his recommendations, and loved them both. Daniel also recommended that we take the Metro and visit the towns of Portugalete and Gexto. We are so glad we went there. We had a great day, walking along the beach from Portugalete to Puerto Viejo and then having a quick bite to eat in the old town of Gexto. Would highly recommend you stay here if you are planning a trip to Bilbao.

Bohemic, clean and very nice. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The rooms are large (the superior one atleast) and very cosy. Situated just perfectly in the old town, you are a short walk away from all the great eateries and The Plaza Nueva with their nice pintxos.
