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!

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 …
... voted for it to be a permanent feature. Behind the museum there is another eye catching sculpture, a huge spider called Mama, created by the sculptress, Louise Borgoise.
Apparently until the museum was completed in 1997, Bilbao was a bit of a backwater with boatbuilding as one of the main industries. However, it is a city in transformation with award winning architects designing new or renovating old buildings everywhere. At present, it has a population ...
... We had accommodation booked already in Bordeaux and Paris as we were flying out of Paris to get to Split, but the only bus that would get us from Bilbao to Bordeaux (about 4 hours or something) arrived at 3:30am! We were staying in AirBnB so a bit different to a 24 hour reception desk and she said she wouldn't be able to check us in at that ridiculous time. Fair enough. After a lot of research in various methods including getting trains to random ...
... offering stunning views of the whole city, with spectacular views of the Guggenheim Museum. This sightseeing place has a very pleasant and well cared for garden where you can also see a beautiful monument to those who died during the Spanish Civil War (1936-39). The old section of Bilbao has quaint, narrow streets normally full of people, but it was Sunday afternoon. The popular Plaza Nueva offers plenty of restaurants and ...
... that anyone does that isn't like her normal life is "weird". And although that doesn't help her situation, it makes us as teachers feel better that she's not really in a bad situation, she just doesn't seem to be able to adapt...to anything...at all. So, only 2 more days and they will all be back together. We did run into another student randomly, and she's having a great time with her family. For the most part, today is best shown through a couple of pictures. Hasta ...
