Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Spa Husa Jardines De Albia Bilbao
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.

... where Becky took a turn on the recumbent and we managed to steer Sam past a topless sunbather without him noticing. We'd feared the museum might be a bust for a low art IQ family like ours but in fact the opposite was true. Many of the pieces were HUGE or given lots of display space so the volume of art wasn't so overwhelming. Also, much of the work was enjoyable on ...
... it! Then it was on to Bilbao. The decision was taken to stay off the motorway and take the 'scenic route'. As it turned out, that wasn't our smartest decision as the scenic route,.. through the mountains,.. involved some serious downhill spells and even more serious uphill climbs. The 'old girl' really struggled. We changed plan (with 30 Klms to go) and took the motorway into Bilbao.Our campsite here is high,.. high, on a 'mountain', overlooking the city ...
... of Bilbao was confirmed the next morning - it's got old world Mediterranean charm with stunning new architecture. And coming from me, someone who hates modern art, that means something. The only thing that would put me off staying there for good is all the Basque stuff - incomprehensible language, nationalistic sentiment, etc...)

The changes to the landscape occurred about 40 Kms from Bilbao and it suddenly became heavily forested and very hilly, if not mountainous depending on ones definition. Basque is the oldest surviving language and the area is strictly Catholic. It is believed there are about 3 million Basque persons living with about .5 of a million in France and the rest in Spain.
... and easy to get to the museum. It went along the edge of the Old Town and also past the market so we basically had all of our bearings from this trip. Most of it would be walkable although the tram fare is a flat € 1.40 or an all day ticket € 3.80.
The Guggenheim was fantastic as you would expect. There was a disappointment however as the 3rd floor was closed and this was the floor that ...
