Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Frans op den Bult Deurningen
We arrived in the city of bilbao on 18th March for 2 nights for my friends special birthday. The City was brimming with atmosphere. The sun shone and the city was vibrant.
The hotel was very clean, attentive to you needs. The rooms were of a good size, nice decor, plenty of soft fluffy white towels, clean crisp linen and a good daily clean. I am a fussy person and found the rooms to be spotless and they were cleaned at a reasonable time of day - midday. This did not interfere with our day. The hotel was quiet and in a perfect location. 5 mins from the famous El Corte Ingles shop and 5 mins in the other direction to the old town shops - wonderful for shoes. Then in another direction the tram to take you to the impressive Guggenhiem museum. The outside of the museum was breath taking and the sturture inside too, HOwever the exhibts were a a let dowm and I feel my twin daughters could of displayed better peices of art.
The hotel had the facitiity of a gym. I would not really recommend the gym I enjoy fitness and found the gym to be a small room with only 8 different peices of equipment. However the Spa which is privately owned was a wonderful experience. Again this was clean apparently the spa is the most sought after in Bilbao and well worth a visit -take your own flip flops with.
Breakfast was fine with everything you needed to eat. It was plentiful and very edible too. I would recommend the hotel and very reasonable in price too. I am a fussy person and I do think this hotel is in a wonderful location and reasonably priced too.
Pleased with our choice
We stayed for 3 nights and had a great time. Rooms, although not large, were adequate and most importantly very clean. Buffet breakfast was really good with enough choice to keep most people happy. Hotel is in a good location within walking distance of the towns attractions. It was a pleasant walk to the old town to enjoy the atmosphere and good restaurants. We got the metro to Plentzia for a walk by the sea and stopped off to see the "bridge" at Portugalette on the way back. What a great day. Catch the bus from the airport to the main square then it's a 5 - 10 minute walk. Check out the tai restaurant to the rear of El Corte Ingles, it's fab & cheap.
One criticism was that the bar had a limited range and closed at about midnight. We would go back again.
The location is great - right in the middle of the city, about half-way between the Guggenheim & the old centre. The hotel itself was reasonable enough - decent sized rooms, helpful english-speaking staff - but lacked any character. Breakfast was 12 euros and offered a decent variety - cereals, meats, bacon & scrambled eggs, croissants, toast, tea & coffee. The breakfast room was quite small though, and we had to wait about 15 minutes just to be seated. There are cheaper hotels around, and certainly many with a lot more character, but for location and as a 'safe bet' this hotel's pretty good.
Picked this Hotel over the net reading other reviews and therefore didn't know what to expect. Just back and feel that I had to detail that the Hotel was great. The location is probably the best as it is central to everything and the nearest Metro is only 300m away. It is set off the lovely square with some good cafes around it. The hotel rooms are large and offer most extras that one would assume. The hotel is in a lively spot at the weekends, so if you want complete quiteness, dont stay in the superior rooms to the front although i enjoyed the slight hum as its all part of the experience. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was good and I guess the overall cost is reasonable given the quality offered. Good Choice!
Peaceful & Comfortable
A lovely, peaceful hotel. Friendly helpful staff and fantastic buffet breakfast. Excellent central location. Good value for money.
One night in Bilbao
I booked this hotel over the internet and was pleased at my choice when
I arrived. The staff were extremely helpfull as I needed to arrange
onward travel the next day and they gave me all the information I
The hotel is modern and the room comfortable with all standard fitments and an internet access keyboard though I didnt have time to try this out.
Having no view from the window would be my only complaint.
Breakfast was buffet style in the cafe.
I would certainly stay there again.

And if in your head you're thinking, "Why is she complaining, the ungrateful cow", spare a thought for naturally disorganised people like me. I've left things all over three countries, and my brain nearly exploded.

Burgos is also the birthplace of El Sid who is honoured in this city as a hero. He was born here and is buried here after leading the Catholic’s against the Muslim’s. There is a 1950’s film about him and here there is a large stature in the main intersection of the city commemorating him.
We stayed at Burgos about 1.5 hours and had lunch. I had a lovely burger and my first for months along ...

Granted, we did not arrive home before being screeched at by a woman ...
