The lobby lies. It tells you that this hotel might be on the right side of shabby. It's all lies! The room we were given was tiny and smelled of feet and ashtrays. There was a window which was nearly redundant as it faced onto a brick wall. There were cigarette burns in the top cover and sheets (despite it...

We came for a weekend to Bilbao. I paid 256 euros for 3 nights, and I was surprised to see the Hotel..Old furniture, and the worst was that there were ants...The toilet was ok, but there wasn't body gel or shampoo for the three nights... The staff was correct. Situated close to the center (10 min walking).

The location was not great, it felt a bit unsafe walking at night and is a 15/20 min walk to the action in the central/ old quarter. It was fine as a couple but as a single female I wouldn't have liked to walk home by myself. This may have been because it was the festival and their were more...

I've stayed at this hotel on July 2014. The hotel location/price is its best feature. It is located about 20 min walk from Museo de Bellas Artes and the bus station and a 15 min walk from casco viejo and train station. The hotel staff is not very kind or nice and always talk to you like there were doing...

Just returned from Bilbao BBK between 8/7/14 & 15/7/14 and stayed in the Vista Alegre for 6 night's. 6 travellers sharing 2 room's each with 3 single beds. Room's basic but clean and cleaned daily. Sheets and bath towels also changed daily (I am a bit phobic about cleanliness). I can't comment on the food (breakfast) as we ate out....

Previous reviews pretty much reflect our experience. The hotel was clean but basic, consistent with its two star catagory, a fifteen minute down-hill walk to the railway station and centre. A few restaurants in the area. No elevator and not very strong wifi in the room - worked better in the little lounge down the hall.

Were given a terrible room with no window after booking on line. And of course no lift! The double bed was small next to the wall and the tv didn't work... well it was ok for two very tired people who had spent all afternoon at the museum. And not too far from the city centre and shops and cafes.The...

Good location to explore the city, you can walk almost anywhere. Clean rooms, but paper-thin walls, so the hotel is quite noisy. Furniture and decoration are old-fashioned, but its cleanliness has to be mentioned. Nice and welcoming staff.

“Room's situated at the front of the hotel are a bit noisy from general street noise. Those situated at the rear are quieter. Don't expect fab or lovely views. You have to get out and about for these.”
