... 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. ...
... out the city and trying to find where to get my bus back to the hostel. Bilbao seems like a really nice city, and I’m happy that this day didn’t end up being a complete disaster. Unfortunately my pension is full for tomorrow night, so I can’t stay again, but I’m going to head to Santander and hopefully get away from this rain. Thanks Bilbao, you did a great job salvaging what could have been a completely horrible ...
... here in Bilbao, as opposed to the tourist pamphlet version.
I did not have much time here in Bilbao. Only arriving last night at 6:00, my time to explore was limited as I had to be at the airport at 3:00 to meet up with the excursion group before heading to Areans de Cabrales. I didn't quite make the most of it, as it was pouring rain most of the time and it took me forever to find the hostel. I carried all my stuff around downtown for probably an hour and a half (cause ...
We left the Arcachon Bay, France last night on a dinner cruise and arrived in Bilbao early this morning. It has been looking like rain all morning so everyone was a little slow to get up and get going.
My grandmother came aboard this afternoon. She's always wanted to visit this part of Spain so she flew over several days ago and has been visiting a few of the cities not on the yachts itinerary. She spent the night in Bilbao, and this morning the crew ...
... we waited for them for 10 minutes and then got on the bus to go to Bilbao. In Bilbao we went to the Guggenheim Museum. It was so amazing. The architecture and art work was seriously breath taking. We stayed there until 7:30 and then we drove home. So, there you go. That was my deliciously fun-filled weekend in Santander. Tomorrow´s agenda: class until noon and then...who knows! More to come soon so stay tuned. love and misses (yes I meant misses-as in "I miss you ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Miro Bilbao
Modern, comfortable, cozy, very good service and close attention to details, staff very helpful. Very well situated within a few steps of the Guggenheim Museum and public transportation, walking distance to major shopping areas. Good breakfast buffet. Underground public parking across the street. Several tapa bars in the vicinity. Highly recommended for a stay in Bilbao.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Miro Bilbao
Will give it above average because of the room size and the really wonderful staff. Having booked direct and asked for a double room non-smoking it was disappointing to find that the request was ignored. We did eventually get the double room which was a smoker and had that odour that only us non-smokers seem to hate. A minimilist hotel taken to the extreme. The bar was featureless and without any atmosphere but the breakfast area was fine and the breakfast itself very good. The Spa and Gym areas though small were also good and could compete with those offered by much more expensive hotels. Location was very good but Bilbao is a walking town and everywhere is close. The city itself was quiet but the shopping was good and the people warm and friendly. Dont go for the night life. The Guggenheim museum is a must if only for the building itself but check what is being shown. Overall value for money.
Wonderful hotel - one of the best
This place is gorgeous - both the public spaces and the rooms. And the staff is friendly and helpful. This is a boutique / designer hotel without the attitude. Great gym - complete with apples, mineral water and granola bars. Speaking of food, the meals available at the bar are ample and relatively inexpensive. This place is a cut above! We hated to leave.
We love the Miro, Wonderful, Fantastic, the Best!!!
What a pleasure to stay at the Miro, it had a wonderful atmosphere.
Minimilistic in an oppulent way, great rooms, amazing sexy bathrooms. The best breakfasts in all of Spain. Spa was lovely and a great place to unwind and chill. Excellent location, and friendly helpful staff. WE LOVE THE MIRO!! Last but not least, all for a fantastic price of 121euros per night. A pure pleasure to stay at the Miro.
I would definitely stay here again!
What a wonderful hotel! Nice, clean, modern...and in a great location. We had a full view of the Guggenheim from our window and only had a 15 minute walk to the old city. The staff were also very friendly and helpful.
The hotel: On the same road of the Guggenheim, facing the river, strategically situated among Bilbao's architectural gem and the museum of arts. Great staff, fluent in english, excellent room service and informative consierge. They can arrange anything from a bullfight to the best dinner in Bilbao for you.
What a treat this was...The Miro hotel is superb...everything from a great room with a smashing view of the museum to the friendliest staff, nothing was too much to ask of them, infact we were very impressed with our whole visit to Bilbao. I personally loved the shopping (being a woman)...great shops at great prices. If you like walking you'll love it there, we could have walked all day and not seen the same thing twice, the old quarter is fab lots of little hidden streets and alleys with yet more great shops and bars. We will come back again for sure...
Great little gem
We had a great stay at the Miro in August 2004.
From the minute we arrived (early in the morning) until we left, the staff was friendly, helpful & attentive. We arrived early, so they immediately asked if we needed coffee and had our suite ready.
Suite was large, comfortable and had great views of the Guggenheim - which was just a couple blocks walk away.
A bit of a walk to the nearest subway station...but easy to get around. Take the subway to the outer stations (about 30 min. ride) for some great beaches.
The jacuzzi/whirlpool in the spa at the Miro was an absolutely wonderful spot to relax at the end of the day.
I adored the Miro Hotel
The Miro Hotel in Bilbao had beautiful rooms, wonderful service, great location (just across from the Guggenheim Museum), superb food and an attractive spa.
Best hotel staff ever
Funky boutique hotel in a good location 1 min from the Guggenheim, and a nice walk to the Old Town, city centre, galleries and museums.
Service was the great surprise for me too, with all staff from recption to the bar staff dispalying a wonderful friendly nature, nothing was too much bother; late night food, excellent restaurant tips, football tickets, planning walks and sights etc., and the best (potent) vodka limon in town.
The Miro is a fairly new, small hotel almost opposite the Guggenheim in Bilbao. It's a very modern looking hotel - minimilist decor and very comfortable. One of the best aspects was the abosoloutely lovely staff - extremely friendly, couldn't do enough to help which was slightly unexpected given the style of the hotel. For some reason modern, trendy places seem to think it their duty to employ haughty staff. But not here. Very comfortable and quiet, I stayed in a standard twin room which had a weekend rate of 155 Euros. The breakfast was fab - but not included. It was 12 Euros. There's a small gym and jacuzzi in the basement and a bar - it's probably the only place that I've been served a gin and tonic in a pint glass! It was my first trip to Bilbao so I have no other hotel expereinces to compare this one to - but it was really a nice hotel.
