5 day trip to Bilbao
Great hotel and facilities, good value for money. Very efficient overall. Great food. Very comfortable beds and pillows. Rarely replace the the coffee /tea & water facilities and water, you have to constantly ask for them. Location is a few tubes away from most of the tourist areas you wish to see but travel is cheap and easy.

Perfect neighbourhood location for our stay. Nice and quiet, v comfortable all the facilities we needed. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Occidental Bilbao
Good well-run hotel in quiet area
Generous sized room in good hotel. Be advised that the walk down the hill to the casco viejo takes about 20 mins and involves many steps so difficult for anyone with dodgy knees ! But there is a lift which helps for part of the route : accessed next to mallano park / football pitch, emerges in the casco viejo subway station with a walkway to unamuno square. 45 cents each way.
