    Historical Traveler Reviews Barcelo Bilbao Nervion

    A mixed review

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    Bilbao 25-28June
    Travelled from Zaragoza to Bilbao using Alsa bus lines. It was a new coach, Coach of the Year, with wifi, and we drove along a six lane highway in top condition. Again we drove through much food production, obviously well irrigated, lots of wind farms and overall, interesting scenery.
    We drove express for over 3 hours and …

    Once again we had a filling breakfast before venturing out into the cooler morning. The day warmed up and was the most humid we have experienced this trip.

    Today was also our most energetic. We walked for hours!

    First stop was across the river so Tom could take photos of the Guggenheim Museum – however the sun was in the wrong place. We stayed on the other side of the river and walked to the ...

    After our museum tour we walked across a vey fancy pedestrian bridge and took a funicular ride up to the top of the area known as Mountain Artxand and got some amazing views of Bilbao. On the way home we stopped to get some wine and groceries, then once back at the B&B overlooking one of the main streets, opened the windows, took off our ...

    ... in France and on from there, Jamie stumbled onto the idea of an overnight bus to Toulouse. It would mean we would (sadly) miss Pamplona but would sort out or transport issues. Plus we would get to go to Toulouse. Destination sorted, now we just had to actually get the tickets which was harder than it sounds since the website wouldn't accept any of our credit cards. So we stopped into the bus station in Bilbao to purchase the tickets, only to ...

    ... I was treated with respect as soon as I walked into the door. The owners were a lovely couple who were happy to see a new face. They took the opportunity to teach me some Basque and make some great restaurant suggestions.

    Instead of tapas bars in Bilbao, there are pintxos bars. Pintxos are deceptive. They are small and usually attached to a piece of bread, like a slice of baguette, with a skewer. Some examples of pintxos are: mini hamburguesas, tuna salad with ...
