Excellent stylish hotel by the seaPosted Jun 16, 2015
Pros: Wverything, but in particular the décor, the site, the food and the staff
Cons: More obvious hotel sign on the road
Location: It is in a very smart suburb of Bilbao. There is a popular beach nearby, local shops, and the Metro for easy access to central Bilbao.
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.

Decent hotel but small room.Posted Jan 2, 2015 on Hotels
Hotel was decent in a good location (location by the bay only useful in warm/ summer weather). Room was a bit small which made it not very comfortable, but okay for a day which I spent.

beautifully restored hotelPosted Aug 19, 2014 on Hotels
This is a really lovely hotel. Very friendly staff and the food in the restaurant was amazing quality for the price. The only bad thing was the bed was very hard which is to some people's taste but not ours. They were kind enough to switch us but most of the rooms were similar. The location is perfect for Getxo. Halfway between all the different things to see but right on the promenade. The beach is a 10 minute walk away. You are very near a metro station (5min walk) that will take you right into central Bilbao. Definitely better to stay here than in Bilbao itself. Highly recommended hotel.

Hotel Emarcadero, GetxoPosted May 10, 2012
Pros: Stylish decor and layout
Location: Right on the promenade
Getxo is a rather chic stylish small resort close to the Bilbao port. The hotel well matches the resort. The hotel is a conversion of one of a series of late 19th Century family homes on the promenade and has stylish decor and layout. There is limited on-site parking, but you can (at a price) use the on-site undergound garage. I didn't get a chance to eat in the restaurant (except the buffet breakfast# but everything looked to be a done to a high standard. Handy for teh Brittany ferry #if you cross teh river by the brilliant Puente Colgante.
