OIHANE greeted us on Tuesday and bid us farewell Friday. Excellent service. The staff was fluent in English. This is a virtually NEW APART-HOTEL with an elevator! Our clean "room" included a bedroom, bathroom with bidet and shower/tub, a livingroom with a comfortable sofa (also a bed), and an ample table for dining or work. The kitchen cubby contained a two burner electric stove, dishwasher, refrigerator, sink, as well as pots, pans, silverware, and table settings for six! Finally, a compact washing machine that doubled as a dryer was helpful--once we googled operating instructions, lol. We utilized the light rail, just across the pedestrian bridge to access the Guggenheim and Fine Arts museums just one stop downriver. The light rail reached the historical Basque old town just three stops upriver. Pintxos (tapas) and local wine were readily abundant in the "new plaza" from the 1800s! The inside farmers market is nearby. A 24 hour light rail pass is €1,50, about $1.50. The hotel is just two blocks from the funicular offering a mountain overview of Bilbao. A food market and bakery are at the funicular entrance. We'll be back and seek ABBA in our travels.

Excerpts from a note I sent to the hotel appear below. After staying with you in July and October, my wife and I knew that your hotel was the place for our large gathering between Christmas and Three Kings Day. We had high expectations for our third visit and your team managed to exceed them. Our stay at Abba Bilbao City Center was simply outstanding. We all loved the spacious rooms, convenient amenities (like the combination washer/dryer), the great location, the comfortable beds, and clean surroundings. Most of all though, we enjoyed the hospitality of your team. Your team at the front desk was, as always, so friendly and helpful. My daughter said, “The kindness of the staff at the front desk made me feel at ease. It was easy to feel like we were coming home every time we walked through the door.” The housekeeping team was great too. My father-in-law said, “The housekeeping staff accommodated our schedule rather than their own. All staff members—including front desk – were genuinely friendly.” The graciousness of your team is remarkable. My son-in-law said, “I was grateful that the staff consistently let me practice Spanish while being patient and supporting me in English when I needed it.” I loved how your team arranged for all of us to stay on the same floor. When our party expanded to five rooms over the New Years weekend, we had the whole floor to ourselves, allowing us to move between rooms at all hours of the day without any worry about disturbing other guests.

One of the main issues for us was the parking, the hotel only has 7 parking spaces and after that it’s street parking or an underground one we used the street parking but because the different zones have different staying times and after parking overnight (after trying to put money into the machine at 9 am in the morning) you can’t continue the next day unless you move to a different area, I would suggest you try and prebook your parking with the hotel before arriving - otherwise its quite stressful - i realise its not the hotel fault, and the staff were very helpful On checking in there seemed to be some confusion on which room we were staying in, we were informed we couldn't have the room we wanted as they had all been allocated we were given a key which didn't open the the room - then given another key to another room on another floor. we weren't keen on this room and asked for a different room, then we were told that we could look at the room that we initially wanted - so it hadn't been alloced then ? took a fair amount of time to finally get into a room and settle in, when we did we loved the room, more like a small apartment than a hotel room hotel just 10 minute walk from Guggenheim all in all, was a good stay, but if coming again by car i would definitely try and pre book parking - staff very friendly and helpful

Dear Guest, Thank you for your comprehensive review of your recent stay, We are pleased that you received friendly and professional service from our team members and that you appreciated our location with easy access to popular tourist sites. We have tried to clearly state on our website that we do have a very limited number of parking spaces and unless it is for a client with reduced mobility, we do not reserve. They are subject to availability at the time of arrival. We are sorry for the confusion during your check-in and will be sure to review this with our team. We look forward to seeing you again! Best regards, Aintzane Arrieta, General Manager

Hotel says check in starts at 4pm. We were accommodated as we arrived early. Room was ready at 1pm. Everything seems rather new in the apartment furniture wise. Not sure if it was only recently opened. Everything we needed was provided. Supermarket was close by for shopping. Decent internet and could stream devices to the TV (Netflix, YouTube). Very centrally located to the city. Would 100% recommend this place to stay.

Stayed here for 4 nights for my birthday, they upgraded me from a studio to a 1bed apartment which was appreciated. The apartment itself is clean, modern, and simply furnished. The kitchenette area is very small and lack of design in regards to space to cook is very limited, lots of cutlery and crockery,however very impractical to prepare or cook as no space. Housekeeping was average on our last day the room was not serviced so in the end i left the card on the door to not enter. Housekeeping would put the dishwasher on daily with no dishwasher soap so we had to repeat it to get the pots clean they made the bed, changed the towels however not daily, and empty the bin Reception were pleasant and helpful. Location good 10 minutes walk from the guggenheim and a goodsupermarkertless than 5 minutes walk from the apartment. The reason I have rated it 3 stars only is the kitchenette area and Housekeeping did very limited if any cleaning in the apartment.
