              • Older travelers
                9.2

                We arrived 1 day earlier, receptionist offered us only available room - executive suit, applied discount. The room was great: very spacious, clean modern interior, exceeded our expectations. Very reasonable price, even for doubles. Elegant breakfast buffet, courteous staff. Nice sandal smell.

                too small pull, fitness zone - this hotel just to sleep, but not for stay & relax.

                Great location, friendly staff, amazing restaurant, luxury room, good value for money

              • Older travelers
                7.8

                The staff were very helpful and courteous - much better than when it was with the previous owners (despite some of them having been there at that time).

              • Family with children
                7.4

                Excellent hotel, good room with lovely viewes, great breakfast

                Very expensive parking (apprx. 24 Euro/day)

              • Couple
                6.2

                Vicinity to Guggenheim, large room

                I had booked a non-smoking room and they gave us a foul-smelling room full of cigar smells, so we changed.The check-in and check-out was too slow. The espresso coffee ordered through room-service was not only far too expensive (€ 7 Euro), it was also one of the worst espressos ever had. The elevator was also out of works. The door to the terrace did not close. We complained but they did not fix it.

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                Visiting Guggenheim; dining in Bilbao and in the hotel, in particular; everything in walking distance with excellent public transportation as "backup"; riverside walkways

                Modern Hotel with excellent facilities.

                The rooms were originally booked by a Company and were supposed to be prepaid but the hotel lost all details of this and demanded a further payment upon arrival - although later resolved it still felt very unprofessional.

                An interestingly designed hotel with lots of facilities. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The foyer space is impressive and it's conveniently positioned for getting to from the airport by bus and for using as a base for either a leisure or business trip.

                Although rated 5 stars it didn't really cut it for me. The building is interesting to look at but not well designed in that the form has definitely come before the function - the pool is nice, for example, but its positioning isn't thought out in relation to the adjacent spaces. If you don't like heights and you're on an upper floor expect some discomfort too. The biggest failing though was the lack of decent wifi in the foyer. 5 stars should offer free wifi, at least in the foyer - which they do, but it was unrelIable and offered by a third party. When it didn't work the hotel's attitude was that it wasn't their problem. That's not a 5 star attitude.

                Location, architectural design, and view. Concierge was more helpful than tourism office.

                Used two glasses from minibar cabinet. Housekeeping left them on the floor outside our door all day without replacing them in the room. Odd.

                The hotel is very up to date, clean and the staff is very professional. The hotel is well located for shopping and a city trip as well as for business.

                I liked the bed and the bathroom, very spacious and comfortable.

                It seems boring.

                Excellent 5 star and well situated close to the guggenheim, center and beautiful park. The rooms are very nice especially on the higher floors where you have a nice view of the city. I bar in the hotel is good and they serve nice food (fresh shushi etc.). They greatest part was that they have soft beds, which is strange in Spain because they like hard beds.
