          Central location, convenient for galleries,stadium etc.

        • Single
          5.4

          Location quiet good. 10 min by foot to Guggenheim. Nice bars and restaurants near by.

          No parking facilities and hotel parking is very expansive (20 eur). The room is quiet old and worn out. Fitness room is not very big and also quiet old.

        • Single
          6.6

          Staff is nice and tries to help even when not possible.

          Wi-Fi not accesible from room (I was in level 11) you have to go to the lobby/restaurant area to get a conexion.

        • Single
          8.2

          Cleanliness of the room

          Not enough staff to solve problems with the wireless internet during the weekend.

        • Single
          7.4

          Closeness to the shops and bus station. Breakfast buffet

        • Family with children
          7.4

          Location was excellent! Near Plaza Moyua and shopping.

          We had a triple room on the 2nd floor in the newer wing and that one was great but we also had a double room in the older wing on 4th floor and this room was in need of an update. Carpet and decor were worn and paint was chipping.

        • Single
          6.6

          Nice staff, good breakfast, nice room

          There was only a socket for plugging in electric devices. Thus, it was not possible to plug in the laptop while the TV was on!

        • Family with children
          7.0

          The room was reserved for 3 adults + 1 child but it was not available by the hotel, and we need to change to two double rooms.

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          The location was good for the guggenheim and shopping

          The expected rude reception staff commented on several reviews on the abba parque made an appearance at the check in desk he spoke with me without looking at me for a couple of minutes...the check out reception girl (with teeth braces) was charming though.. A bad welcome from hotel staff encouraged us not to spend money in the abba parque or have breakfast at the hotel, or re-book at the abba parque when infact I have been and will be a frequent visitor to bilbao where similar priced hotels shine above this hotel.....3 Stars is about right with a good location and good aircon.

        • Couple
          6.2

          Good location - comfortable room ("executive") with balcony

          Staff at breakfast was extremely unfriendly - the first day they discussed loudly between themselves using foul language - the second day, we arrived at the breakfast room just after a big group had left, when asking the staff where to sit they indicated us twice a table which had not yet been cleaned, saying it was clean!

        • Couple
          7.4

          Good location, close to tramstop. Standard 3-star hotel.

          Parking in the garage is with 20€ per day very expensive.

        • Family with children
          6.2

          Convenient for major Bilbao attractions, Guggenheim etc. Has a very clean underground carpark and family rooms are spacious

          Some facilities shown on my booking (bathrobes and slippers) were not in the room which disappointed the kids and reception were very unhelpful when this was brough to their attention. Furniture in room looked tired and lots of dust in places.

        • Single
          6.6

          good location

          no swimming pool in the hotel (although the website suggested that there was one, it appeared that there was only a pool on the other side of the street, payable)

        • Family with children
          7.8

          Efficient staff, easy check in, room service. Good value for money. Very quiet spacious room.

          Third bed in the triple room was an hard, uncomfortable trundle bed, disappointing for a 3 star hotel
