    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!

    The Guggenheim

    ... were more of a blatant apology for this series. Having been to other famous museums such as the Louvre and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim was very much not what I was expecting. Rather than having fun appreciating the art we had more fun laughing at the audio guides awkward descriptions and talking about the ludicrous pieces with serious analytical tones.

    To say the Guggenheim was not what I expected would be an understatement. ...

    And so we arrive in Espagne

    ... one that caught my attention was a tree with small notes hanging from its limbs. Visitors are welcome to write a simple note and hang it on the tree for buena suerte. The next thing to draw me in was the Yoko Ono exhibit. Her work was fascinating and bewildering all at the same time. One of her pieces was a cluster of household items (kitchen chairs, flower vases, dressers, etc) cut ...

    ... at different cities, but in five hours we were in Bilbao. Bilbao is a very nice city with tree lined streets, modern buildings, subway system, street cars, and excellent bus and taxi services, besides it is not that big so walking is a very acceptable option. Our hotel is right in front of the Guggenheim and very close to the river, this gives it a very beautiful view of this part of the city. After checking in, we went out for lunch at a nice restaurant/bar ...

    ... vehicles and pedestrians are transported across the river on a gondola suspended from railway tracks on the bridge above. The gondola is still in operation, but in 1999 an observation deck was opened on the upper span, and the bridge is now a major tourist attraction.
