Great location, warm staff. FLOORING is TERRIBLE!
My stay was comfortable. The front desk was very helpful with information about Bilbao . The room was very neat and clean, I thought it was really sweet had they made a personal note in your room with a complimentary water. One big issues is the fact that the floor makes so much LOUD noise everyone can hear you walking in your room and in through hall way. Other issue , while I was there we had to take 2 different elevators, was just ridiculous honestly. I can't rate his hotel 5 stars because the sound of the floor really made this place a 2.5 stars . Please finish strong and fix the flooring that would make the hotel a 5 star .

This hotel is minutes from the Chueca district.. I walked to the bars and walked back to the hotel after a few drinks!

loud & dirty, great location
There was an overwhelming smell in the room; a mix of smells like mold covered up by perfume. We wanted to open the windows to let the room air out but the traffic noise on the 2nd floor was so loud and constant we kept the window closed. I asked to change rooms, but they said they were at full occupancy that night. also very noisy. The walls and floors have so little insulation/sound barrier that every step, dragging of suitcases, maids cleaning rooms, talking, etc woke me up constantly (I am a heavy sleeper). Some of the noise was so loud and jarring I still can't understand what was going on. Lastly, the room was not particularly clean. The wall paper is dingy, the curtains couldn't have been washed recently, thr shower had mildew in the corners. Just generally unpleasant. the staff was both nice and helpful, and the hotel is located in a really convenient location in Casco Viejo. We took the train located very near the hotel both to the Guggenheim (you can also walk) and San Mames for a football match.

Convenient location and quiet
We had stayed in Bilbao the weekend before and wanted another hotel in the old city center, but in a quieter location. We found it here! Great location and staff were very friendly. A walk across the street to the taxi stand made this for the perfect location for an early departure to the airport.
