The Abando Hotel is located closed to everything, within walking. Casco Viejo, or Old Town, is a 10 minute walk away and offers cuisine and history. The Grand Via, Bilbao's premier street for shopping and walking/relaxing is directly around the corner. But yet, with all that is going on around it, the Abando is a nice quiet stay with excellent staff and an excellent breakfast.

It is difficult to be close to everything as important sites are spread out. This hotel is centrally located to the old town and the Guggenheim. It is also 10 minutes walking from the tram and train station. Rooms are clean, very adequate, beds comfortable. Breakfast is adequate.

Hotel Abando is set in a fantastic location, within walking distance of pretty much all the sights in Bilbao. The hotel is really comfortable and staff are great. We loved the design of the bedrooms which were really comfortable. The hotel is situated right beside a really lively street which seems to be the centre of the night life, yet you hear no noise in the hotel itself. We really enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it. Breakfast is a bit of a rip off but there are plenty of places nearby to grab something to eat.

Perfect location. Near many Tapas bars. Walking distance to the river. Can use hotel parking or public parking 300m away from hotel. The room was lovely but you could hear when the room used the bathroom or walked in shoes.

In this very walkable city Hotel Abando is in easy reach of most tourist destinations like the Guggenheim about 15 minutes away as well as a ton of places to eat and shopping venues. The modest bar serves coffee and pastries in the morning (we did not get the breakfast), and the rooms are spacious and certainly clean and well-maintained. There can be a lot of street noise (and some short-term daytime construction in the hotel while we were staying there), so light sleepers might try to find a room that is not on streetside.

The Hotel Abando is a centrally located hotel. We stayed 4 nights are were very pleased. The rooms were larger than most European rooms, and the bathroom was big.. There was air conditioning, a safe, hair dryer, coffee and tea setup,TV, comfortable beds and pillows, and a mini bar..The internet was free, secure, and fast. Rooms are smoke free. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were great with many selections. Down the street were tons of fabulous restaurants, and the Guggenheim was a short 15 minutes walk away.. A really good choice.

Having arrived in Bilbao for a two night stay we could not have been more pleased with this hotel - great welcome by efficient staff ... clean comfortable rooms with very interesting flower arrangements throughout the hotel - many photographs taken for future use. Breakfast good - Car Park attached to hotel for ease and a very Central Location.

The hotel is well center located inside Bilbao to move quickly between all the main area you need to visit. You can park you car at the hotel and forget it. e.g. The Guggenheim museum it's only 10min walking. The room we've got was large with a big bathroom, some free refreshment inside, and very pretty at all. My only concerns are the owner has to invest a little on some maintenance or restorations. Out of this it was very good. Very good breakfast, internal parking available paying an extra but you need this parking because no other closer option available there. It's a good option in Bilbao.
