After spending two days at Gite Couleau inside due to the constant rain and with more rain forecasted for the week – it was time to find a distraction. We decided to head out to Spain in the direction of the Basque country – our first stop on our pilgrimage was to the Guggenheim Museum "Bilbao". The Guggenheim …
... a bottom bunk. Showered and was outside drying off when Margaret shows up. She had taken a different route and was played right out. She has a good sense of humour and kept me entertained as we went out for a bite to eat. Her being a vegetarian is finding it hard to find something to order. Back to the beach tomorrow, I have to slow up a bit so my Aussie buddies can catch up, I need a few laughs and they can provide ...
... As soon as I did the nun appeared! We bought some sositos and she gave us a box butter cookies! That was our breakfast! We walked for several ours more down valleys , through cornfields, by waterfalls, small villages, passed mad dogs, smelly dairies and nothing but green hills and valleys, hours passed quickly as the scenery changes! We finally came to rest at Abuelo Peut's Albergue! It was a very inviting place! Very relaxing! It was amazing to see ...

We of course got lost and asked a few ladies to help us! They began to take us all over town explaining everything about their town! They we wonderful and very helpful! One of them was named Puerto so it was her Saint's day! She was so happy she was singing ...

Once we had arrived in Bilbao and checked into the hotel, we set out on foot for a bit of sightseeing. As with all Spanish towns we had so far been to, the architecture continued to amaze with detail and materials.
Soon we had arrived at the Bilbao Guggenheim Museum, which is a masterpiece in architecture itself. The displays ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Barcelo Nervion Bilbao
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!
