I had read previous reviews so was concerned we had made a mistake in booking here but we were pleasantly surprised. Staff were very friendly and helpful, the bed was comfortable and the room clean. A very convenient location for eateries, the old city, trains etc. Plumbing was very noisy and there is no elevator so perhaps not worth more...

I had read the reviews before I came so was concerned about the safety around the hotel and the wifi. On arriving i was suprised to find such a lovely clean hotel in excellent location and excellent wifi. The staff speak English and the hotel is spotless and appears to have been recently renovated. All tourist attractions are within walking...

Central and cheap The hotel is located in central Bilbao. Very simple hotel, that offers accommodation and no luxus. The offer at breakfast is simple, bad place, but if you only have a coffee, then its ok The room was on the 2nd floor and you have to use stairs all the way. Elevator not available. Ok clean and well...

The room 201 is to the street. The windows are not closed properly and it feels like the cars are driving through your room. Could hardly sleep even with ear plugs. The room is moist and cold. Small tv with very few channels. Breakfast a joke. Only positive things is the shower! Hot and water enough.

Simple hotel in downtown Bilbao. Good location to explore the city at an affordable price. The room was small but clean although very dark. Also on the positive side was the quietness of the room at night.

I have had a terrible experience at this hotel that it is more a cheap tired and dodgy hole in a really awful area of the town. I was charged for the parking space after being told it was free at the check in. Then I was called a liar by the manager of the hotel. Rude and unprofessional staff,...

This guy wanted to use our parking free and made up it was included (that somebody had told him so, lie after lie). Since the beginning he was informed it had a cost that is shown at the frontdesk. At the check out he insisted and we replied again that it was not included. He threatened us to write a...

Hotel left a positive impression on me, although it is just 2**. Good location, clean, helpful staff. Single rooms are really small, but a good place to accommodate on short stays in Bilbao. Breakfast is not worth 5 Eur. Do not take it!!

“Not a room tip per se; don't bother with breakfast at the hotel, go to Cafe Bertiz (cafe bakery) on the other side of Plaza Zaralburu -- WAY better value for money for breakfast.”
