Hesperia Bilbao Reviews
Great location, value for money Oct 19, 2012
We booked this 4 star hotel for 3 nights. We paid about 85 euros a night (for a double room), including breakfast for two.
First, this hotel has a lovely location, along the banks of river Nervión. The world famous Guggenheim is just across the river. If you take the Zubi Zuri pedestrian bridge you have to climb a little, if you take La Salve bridge you can take a free elevator. But, as in any city, you do have to walk!!
The staff of Hotel Hesperia Bilbao is, although short of English, very, very friendly. We felt very welcome!
Spanish and international guests.
The room (306 in our case) was not spacious, but clean and nicely furnished. A comfortable bed (extra pillows and blankets provided), flat screen television, a/c, a safe deposit (with code), free wifi (not only in the public areas, but in the room too), a mini bar (rather high prices, especially compared to the prices of the restaurant and bar) and a bathroom with shower in the bath tub, sink, toilet and bidet. Soap, shampoo etc. provided.
The breakfast buffet is rich! All kinds of bread, cereals, fruits, cheeses, meats, eggs, juices, coffee, tea etc. Loved it. In the weekend breakfast buffet until 11.00 am! No one is rushing you!
One night we had dinner in the hotel. The only choice was a fixed menu with just a couple of choices of each course, but it was good! A three courses dinner for 18 euro!! Bread and water included. Reasonable prices for wine (in the bar too). We choose Russian salad, salmon and ‘flan’. Value for money!
The night of the Bilbao marathon (see my blog) we spent quite some time in the bar. A nice atmosphere. Drinks for reasonable prices. Friendly staff. Great view overlooking the river (banks).
Conclusion: I can recommend this hotel and would definitely go back myself!

Stylish Place with Dirty Spot on Carpet May 04, 2011
I could not decided whether to score "average" or "recommended" for this hotel as there were such contrasts I had to face with. However, at the end I was in favor of "recommended" as they had absolutely terrific breakfast...
So, things I loved:
- Wonderful design of rooms;
- Absolutely fantastic location;
- Even more fantastic breakfast;
- Free Internet.
Things I did not like at all:
- Dirty and ugly spot on the carpet :))) Come on, you enter your room and there is a dirty spot staring at you, as if someone would be killed some time ago. Why just not to clean it up? Or if it's impossible, why just not to change carpet.. But it's there, in the middle of absolutely cute room..
- Overall this hotel was not perfectly clean, then you could find suddenly some strange hair on your bad, etc.
- Their staff were friendly but so slooooooow...... Everywhere - in the reception, in the restaurant. which, after all, can be fine if you don't need to rush, but what if you have to.
However, stay there. I liked it, despite it's bad sides.
