Hotel Seminario in Bilbao

Posted May 3, 2014 on Hotels.com
I recommend Hotel Seminario in Bilbao if you are going to be be for a short stay in Bilbao, specially if you need to be nearby Bilbao's airport. The Hotel's staff were amazing and friendly. You have a free bus shuttle to Bilbao's airport. I highly recommend to eat the "platos combinados" in the menu. The food is very good with a good price. Impossible to miss the Basque pinchos (pintxos in Basque language).

Pros: the front desk attendant was very helpful with good english
The hotel is a basic facility that seems to have been a large facility before. The facilities are underwhelming, however; if you arrive late, want a close hotel to the airport and are leaving early the next morning, the price is right. 12euro taxi each way, has a shuttle for the right times. The rooms are basic along with the restaurant. A 15min walk away you can find a few reasonable local restaurants, we found an okay place for good price and good service

Decent hotel, close to the airport, helpful staff

The Seminario is an OK hotel. Nothing special. But the location (close to the airport) and the price made it the perfect place to stay in Bilbao. The staff was super helpful. I had to have some things printed out and faxed to the US and the front desk staff was really great.

Hotel was suitable for going into Bilbao centre by Tram - 5 minute walk to station. Good to park the car outside without charge etc. Hotel is situated in a building used for conventions, meetings, offices etc and within the grounds are sports facilities, golf course etc. Hotel rooms were of satisfactory standard and staff were pleasant. The only disappointment for us was that we had specifically chosen a hotel that provided a buffet breakfast.. Although this hotel advertised this on the website, in reality it did not provide it. Breakfast had to be taken in the cafeteria which was open to the public. Hotel clients had to queue up at the bar along with everyone else and state what you wanted to the person behind the bar.The only food items on offer were tapas type e.g.small sandwiches that all contained meat and cold tortilla and croisants. Therefore as non meateaters all we had for breakfast was a croissant and coffee. We had spent the previous night in a spanish hotel and for breakfast enjoyed a buffet breakfast where we helped ourselves to coffee, tea, fruitjuice, yoghurt, cheese,breadrolls,criossants etc. When we questioned this at reception we were told this type of breakfast came with room and no reduction would be offered.This was not what was advertised on the website for the Seminario. Therefore we were very disappointed and would not go there again.

It was ok

Posted Feb 2, 2012
Pros: The room was big with a good view.
Cons: The food.
Location: The location was close to my place of work. Without transport there would be nowhere to go.
The hotel was spacious and the room I had was good. But it was January and there was only one small radiator, which was turned off at night, so the room was quite cold. There was no restaurant. There was a cafe, the staff were great but the food basic. The free internet access was good. For sporty people there were a number of activities that would be of interest. The reception staff were great.
