Bonjour! Je suis très contente et satisfait que j'ai pu tant voyager un peu partout en Espagne. J'ai eu la chance de visiter le sud, où que tu retrouves tous les fêtes et gens typique. J'ai pu visiter l'est de l'Espagne , où qu'il y avait Barcelone et Salou, des endroits connus partout dans le monde. Aussi, des petites villes au …

The Guggenheim Museum is amazing. The architecture reminded us of the Sydney Opera House. We saw an exhibition on Yoko Ono and gained a greater appreciation of her work and her rare talent. We walked through the city to the old town and wandered around the medieval streets. The library was magnificent building with fabulous stained glass windows.We …

... modern art I thought, but it didn't move me or provoke thoughts in me for some reason... Maybe cause we didn't have enough time to absorb her "world", I found it hard to grasp... Anywayyyys, our last night camping was close to San Sebastian, where we will spend the afternoon, and then go back home after more than 2 weeks in the Iberian peninsula. ...

Horrible night in the hostel; Good day in Bilbao

... this scarred day and see what Bilbao is like. I caught a bus into the city center and had a walk around for about an hour. I hadn’t really eaten so I went into a bar and had some pinchos. They are all over the bars in every bar in Basque country and they are little tapas, or finger foods. Most of them are small sandwiches, but some are cooked things as well. I had a couple of small sandwiches and some chicken and beef ...

... freshly squeezed orange juice and lunch consisted of many small
plates called Pintxos, or Tapas as we would call them. They were out of this
world. Very creative and unique. Most of them were on toast. My favorite one
was some sort of meat-it might have been duck, with Brie cheese, tomato,
balsamic vinaigrette, and pomegranate seeds. There was another with warm, aioli
sauce and mushrooms, one with foie gras, and another with....I don't even know
what it ...

    Tolles Hotel

    from

    Dies ist ein sehr gutes Hotel. Es entspricht auf jeden Fall dem Standard eines 4 Sterne Hotels und ist dafür auch noch sehr gut. Das Zimmer war selbst für spanische Verhältnisse recht klein, hat aber auch keinen wirklich großen Unterschied gemacht. Sehr guter Preis, wenn Sie ehr bezahlen bekommen Sie wahrscheinlich auch ein größeres Zimmer, meiner Meinung nach ist es das aber nicht wert, es sei denn, Sie bekommen ein gutes Angebot oder brauchen einfach mehr Platz. Die Zimmer sind sehr sauber, gut aufgeteilt und noch recht neu. Es gibt wahrscheinlich bessere Hotels in Bilbao, wenn Sie aber ein gutes Angebot bekommen, ist es das wert. Ich würde auch wieder hier wohnen.

    Das Hotel Hesperia war wunderbar. Modern und stylisch, sauber und komfortabel. Die Angestelltenwaren freundlich und zuvorkommend und das Frühstücksbuffet bot eine erstklassige Auswahl. Die Lage war gut, direkt am Fluss und in Gehbarer Entfernung zu allen Sehenswürdigkeiten.

    Can't go wrong with the Hesperia Bilbao

    from

    Great location (across the river from Guggenheim). Very 'hip', clean and modern hotel with a very friendly staff that spoke English.

    Excellent, given the right room

    from

    As others have said, the staff is unfailingly gracious, the hotel is spotless and beautiful to look at. I was there for a meeting, and the staff support for our 100-attendee meeting was flawless. The breakfast is typical of a good European hotel, which is to say that it's very nice indeed.

    Excellent on all counts

    from

    Great location next to the river with a view from the plate-glassed cafe downstairs of the Guggenheim downriver on one side and the Santiago Calatrava pedestrian bridge practically next to the hotel on the other side. After parking the car in the typically tight European parking garage (get there early to get an easy spot), you can walk to the Guggenheim along the river, take a tram across the river, walk to the main shopping thoroughfare, in other words forget the car in a city that's murder to find a park in. The staff are super friendly, the hotel spotless, the rooms not only comfortable but original in many design details (the hotel has clearly tried to pick up on the stimulus the Guggenheim has given to the city's image as a city of art and design). The free wireless in one's room is absolutely brilliant, perhaps making up for the sparse selection of TV channels. I would definitely stay here again next time I'm in Bilbao.

    Good place

    from

    It´s a good place.

    For it´s category, it meets a 4 star standard. For its range it´s good. The room I stayed in was kind of small, even for spanish standards, but not a huge difference either. Got a good price on it, if you pay more you´ll probably get a bigger room, but I don´t think its worth it unless you get a good deal or would rather have extra space.

    Room was really clean, well organized, and new.

    While there are probably better hotels in Bilbao, if you choose this place, and get a good rate, you´ll be fine.

    I´d stay here again.

    Excellent hotel, great location, friendly staff

    New Hotel Great Visit

    from

    This new hotel (opened Sept.05) is not only modern with big rooms and big bathroom with lots of glass, it has a great bed. After a month in Europe moving from country to country and hotel to hotel, my wife and I agree that this hotel has a great bed. Service staff is very pleasant and helpful and we got along so well that they treated us to a day at the Guggenheim which was a short walk over the bridge and down the river. We could see it from our window (which opened to our delight) The restaurant in the hotel is very very good, although one never wants for a good meal in the Basque country. We always, I mean always consult TripAdvisor before we book and we read the two reviews on this new hotel and decided to disregard the one about the difficulties with the WiFi and take advantage of the great rate. When we arrived we were so pleased that we took advantage of the cheap 15 euro upgrade to a huge room. The WiFi is still a bit slow but I've spent 3 days on my computer communicating with home and the office. It is a sleeper rated at 43 or 47 on TripAdvisor. Our Advice: GO FOR IT!

    Very Disapointed

    from

    Sadly, and for the first time after more than twenty years traveling in Spain, I feel badly let down by customer service in a hotel.

    Hesperia's USP is that it has free WiFi. Despite the efforts of the staff they were unable to get it running. I lost over 4 hours and was unable to complete the work I had to do. I got an impression that there was a lack of experience/training, a management fault obviously.

    What really shocked me was the response(?)to my mail of complaint. After more than a week later I received from a Mr Jesus Arnedo an offer of an upgrade 'if available' for my next(Why would I?)visit. To my second mail there was no answer. Just not acceptable in Spain, where there are many hotels with much better service.

    Stylish

    from

    Hotel Hesperia was wonderful. Modern and stylish, clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and accomodating and the breakfast buffet had an excellent variety. The location was good, by the river and within walking distance of most tourist sights.
