    Great staff. Fabulous pillows!!!!! We enjoyed the short walk down the "old steps" to the "old town" to explore Bilbao. During Easter week we could view processions from the park atop the hill.

    Spacious and comfortable
    I thought the gym/pool advertised was inclusive, which were very expensive as well as the breakfast. Better to go to a cafe down the road.
