Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Good if you just need a simple room in the old city. I liked that the bed was very comfortable and that even though the room faced the street, it got quiet around 11. I didn’t like that the room and especially the bathroom was very cramped. While not a problem during my stay, the room does not have AC.

Located centrally in the old town of Bilbao it is basic so i would only recommend a one/two night stay. i was on the 3rd floor opp WC which wasn't ideal but the room was clean as was the WC. From the airport take the airport bus get out at Moyua and take the metro getting out at Uranano exit ..its approx 3 minutes away from there.

The pension is located in the old city center, 100 m from the tramway stop (from where you can reach Guggenheim Museum in 10'). In the same street there are many cozy restaurants and you can visit the old center of Bilbao by feet. The pension is simple, no elevator (2nd floor), but very clean. The owner is very kind and nice and helps you on any subject. I'll be back there if in Bilbao again.

We spent the first three nights in room #2, just attached to the room containing the main unit for hot water. It was just impossible to sleep due to the hellish temperature. The common bathroom of the 2nd floor is clean but in very poor conditions. The last two nights we spent in room of the third floor. Better situation, but still bathroom in rather bad shape. In occasion of our request to be rilocated, the owner did not behave in a nice way. The place earns from me a single star.

Had a great stay at Pension Mardones the first weekend of February. Arrived late and that was no problem. Owner was very courteous and helpful throughout, and even apologized for some loud guests that disturbed the quiet in the morning. This is a no frills hostel, but clean rooms and bathrooms, and great location in the old city, by the river. 15 mins walk to the Guggenheim. Price was ok for the area. Thank you. Would return.

We have been feel Welcome arriving at Pension Mardones, and the room and the bathroom were both old but clean, it is an old building in the old town and that makes the experience authentic. We had a little balcony from which we could see the lively Streets underneath, exactly what we were looking for. We could leave our luggage no problem at reception (I think it is the apartment of the owner of some staff of the pension so there is permanently someone for when you want to collect your belongings. I would gladly go back next time I am in Bilbao.

Large spacious room in a beautiful old building in a central location. Easy to get anywhere in the city from the front door! Helpful and friendly staff. We had the shared bathroom but there's plenty of showers and toilets just across the hall and it wasn't an issue what so ever. The place (including the bedrooms) are cleaned everyday to a high standard. We really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend to anyone.

Me and my boyfriend arrived here for a vacation with some friends. The Pensiom is reslly in a perfect place: 10 minutes walking from Guggenheim and 3 mins walking from casco viejo Metro where you can reach the most of the thing to see inside and outside Bilbao. Coffe bar, pub and risto and just in front of the pension. Room were small but always clean. Probably one more window in the room might help. The owner was very kind and suggested us beautiful places to see in the nearby of Bilbao. Very good place to stay.
