Excellent stylish hotel by the sea
Posted Jun 16, 2015
Don't expect chintzy furniture and carpets at this very trendy hotel. It is decor is very much black, white and silver, with wonderful vases, ornaments and pictures to match. But, it is very comfortable with places to sit in peace and quiet, access right onto the promenade for a stroll along to the beach, a restaurant and cafétaria serving a wide variety of excellent food. The staff are delightful and very helpful. We paid the extra for a sea view room which is well worth it. Our room was very comfortable and well equipped. And, a major plus, the hotel has its own underground garage as parking in the area could be a nightmare. The Metro station is about 5 minutes walk away and that is only 12 stops from the centre of Bilbao and the Guggenheim (at less than £3 a head return!). Our only complaint was finding the hotel which, although set back on a major road, is very discreetly marked and not easy to spot when driving by. But we loved staying here and would certainly return.
