Historical Traveler Reviews Barcelo Bilbao Nervion
A mixed review
Great price. 75 euros/ni including breakfast and Guggenheim tickets. Room was VERY clean, and serviced promptly. Excellent location close to Guggenheim - an 8-minute very pleasant walk along the river.
Front desk gave a luke-warm welcome; no assistance with luggage. No safety deposit box available (only 20 for whole hotel!). Internet access costs E3.5 for half an hour. Very little tourist info in English.
Requested a quiet double room. Got twin beds in the noisiest room I have ever stayed in. Due to plumbing problem, pipes banged and rattled all night long. Ironic, since this hotel advertises sound-proof rooms.
Overall: Despite the drawbacks, this hotel is a good choice for Guggenheim visitors b/c of location and price.
Nice stay at the Nervion
Stayed at the Nervion for one night in June and found the stay very comfortable. We ordered room service and it was fast and efficient. Great location! I would stay there again if going to Bilbao.
Stayed at the Hotel Nervion for two nights with our four teenage kids in July. We walked along the river to the Guggenheim both days--great views of the awesome building, as well as charming views of the older buildings along the way. We also walked in the opposite direction to the old town where we shopped and went out for meals. The hotel is perfectly situated along the river about midway between the Gug and old town (about a ten minute walk either way--felt very safe day and night). We had three rooms, all had their own bath, blow dryer (impt for teens) and two comfy beds. We got lucky and parked in the hotel's underground parking garage (it was full for most of the time we were there), and enjoyed the free and plentiful breakfast both mornings. We also enjoyed the lobby level bar, although the constant presence of smoke in Europe is hard to get used to. The hotel was great, and I highly recommend it!
Great location - great deal - great lobby & staff
A stroll across Calatrava's bridge and you're at the Gug. Very helpful staff, low rates and fine rooms. Overall, a good choice.
Stayed here last week and it was soo nice to stay in a nice place and pay a fairly good price! Our double room was $75-85 euros i think.
Check out their website. Its very close to the Guggenheim museum, but on the other side of the river. Rooms are immaculately clean. It was nice to stay here after spending many nites in cheaper hostals. It really is not that expensive for a place like this. We stayed at an ugly hostal in Barcelona that prob cost just as much!
Good choice for Guggenheim-goers
The best thing about this hotel is its location. It's a five minute stroll to the Guggenheim Museum, across an exquisite bridge by local architect Santiago Calatrava, and also close to the old city and the main shopping streets. And there are internet facilities right in the lobby, a real bonus which few European hotels seem to offer - even in 2003!

... Topical of old European cities. The Spanish put in a hard days work. They work from 10:00 - 1:00 then from 4:00 - 8:00. Our visit was during siesta so most of the shops were closed. Returning to the ship we passed several palaces in Getxo along the coast leading the the pier. Only a few are lived in regularly but must are used only when the owners want to come for a visit or special occasions. On ...
Today was the day to visit the Guggenheim Muesum, a must see attraction from people who have been to Bilbao before.
Phil was at the front directing Soph and l towards the museum and before long we were there.
The building is an amazing piece of architecture that looks like a ship, designed by Frank Gehry. Inside numerous modern art pieces extend over a number of levels. Sophie was in her element once again as they provided audio guides in ...
NOW I read that it always rains all the time in north Spain. Should have read the literature before I guess. Ferry from Porthmouth to Bilbao was much cleaner and smarter than I expected. Now in Bilbao in a camping site that is actually closed except for the restaurant which is rather good. Not sure why they let us book? We are the only ones here and parked in the restaurant carpark. Which makes it handy for visiting. Been sitting here since 5 o'clock ...
... skin (it tastes better than it sounds). The 6 course degustation menu was awesome! Highlights include cherry tomatoes which were injected with various herbs, the most perfectly cooked fish I have ever eaten and the lovely waitress who had a special glove that she wore when she refreshed our supply of bread. We wound our way home (via a successful stop at H&M) for a siesta. Waking up, still full from lunch, we popped down to a local supermarket to pick up some fresh bread, cheeses ...
