    Historical Traveler Reviews Barcelo Bilbao Nervion

    A mixed review


    The Good:

    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.

    The Bad:

    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.

    The Ugly:

    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.

    Great location


    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.

    Nice Digs


    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!

Apparently, opening happens around 8.00 am - 2.00 pm,.. then re-open around 5.00 pm through to 8.00 pm,... well, in the Old Town anyway,.. not sure yet what happens in the newer shopping malls. Some shops seemed to 'buck the trend' and remained open throughout,.. but they were in the minority. We stopped off at a small bar ...

    Our post Gug lunch today was interesting. Since we had a morning tapas of egg, chorizo and bread we wanted to try something different at mid-day. D ordered a combination platter tht sounded very Basque, but it ...

    ... a little, I turned a corner and stopped dead in my tracks, mouth open. We had entered the Velasquez section, and right in front of me was Las Meninas, perhaps the most prized work in the Prado. I had written a long research paper on this painting, so I knew what the dimensions were, but I still was struck by the scale and mastery of this painting. If you aren’t familiar with the painting, I encourage you to look it up – the use of mirrors and light and space is so ...

I got a little overwhelmed this afternoon with the culture shock but this are ...
