After a harrowing drive from the Bilbao airport in the snow...yes snow, we were greeted by the pleasant young lady at the desk. The bellman took our bag to the room, said "Very nice room" and vanished without a trace. #14 is facing the street and extremely well appointed. A comfortable bed with no street noise made for a great...

“i think it'd be more special to be in the main building, although we never saw those rooms. But this isn't a property where you lounge around in the lobby or a pool (there is no pool). You're pretty much either in your room or headed out.”
