Travel Blogs from Bilbao
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 …
The last leg of the journey took us from the Molino de Alcuñeza in the province of Castillla la Mancha, north through Castilla y León and on to La Rioja before reaching Bilbao. This was probably one of the most scenic routes we've done. Again as I'm no wordsmith the pictures will have to suffice. I've always loved sunflowers and to see field upon field of them in Castilla la ...
... and I explored it from top to bottom. Some of the more
interactive exhibits were very interesting and I enjoyed those-such as "The
Matter of Time" by Richard Serra, which featured giant steel structures (up to
340 ft long!) that curve and warp in weird ways as you walk through them. It's
supposed to make you a little dizzy, disoriented and feel as though you're in
an abstract world, free of conventional straight lines. The whole second floor
was dedicated ...
We went to the Museum of Modern Art, lucky for us it was free to the public on Sunday, the day we arrived in Bilbao. This placed captured interests of all ages with its hands on approach for the kids and exhibits by Yoko Ono. The hotel we stayed in was very clean and spacious and with the included dinner, we received a free bottle of Spanish red ...
... the floor. You can even sit on these big comfy chairs and be part of the room. We even got to climb one of the exibits from these hanging roaps. For sure not what we expected.
Later that evening, we meet a couchsurfer who showed us more of the old center. We had some food and drinks with him and his friends. Super awesome people. The next day, we went and saw the old bull ring, and another really nice park in the city. Then we took a bus to San Sebastian for more fun in the ...

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!
