Facing the Arriaga Theater and next to the Guggenheim Museum in a 10 minutes’ walk along the river, the Petit Palace Arana Hotel in a few meters from the subway, tram, train and bus stop, in the commercial heart of the city where the best pintxos and typical gastronomy is adapted to every pocket.
A passage of the mythical “7 Calles”. Stores, boutiques, narrow paved stone streets, churches and Gothic cathedrals, palaces and important buildings of great historic-artistic interest such as house where the poet UNAMUNO was bornt and lived for years. Its strategic situation allows to access to the main tourist, cultural and business spots of the village.
"Ideal Easter break"
I booked the Petit Palace in Bilbao for a 4 day Easter break from my work in nearby Gernika-Lumo. The position was perfect ... near the tram, on the edge of the old city, opposite the river and easy reach to the galleries. Although shops were closed, the cafes and bars of the old city were fully open. The hotel is very clean and we'll run. The staff are exceedingly polite, helpful and quick to respond to any issues. The room was very comfortable and the staff had written personalised messages on the mirror, which made me smile. The breakfast was included and was exactly right for me. My room had a view of an uninspiring light well, but I grew fond of the sounds from the kitchen upstairs ... only when the window was open. I'd stay there again without hesitation.
"Great hotel great location"
Stayed here for a few nights celebrating my husbands birthday a lovely room but no view, really quiet and kept spotlessly clean Breakfast there was a good selection The staff were all helpful and friendly with free bikes and they even lent us a brollies when it rained This hotel is located in the old town but a very short walk to the centre and about 20 minutes to the Guggenheim A really nice city centre hotel with good facilities would definitely recommend
A very modern hotel in a good location. Near many pintxos bars. About twenty minute walk along the river to the Guggenheim. The hotel gave a lovely welcome, comfortable bed, nice shower room. Nice décor. We didn't have the breakfast.
"Soggiorno perfetto - perfect stay"
I was in Bilbao for 4days.... I've been in the same hotel in 2012. But now the welcoming has so much improved: kind reception personnel, treating as you enter the room (fresh cut fruit on the table, chocolates, sweets on the bed and also small coloured balloons... maybe a bit too romantic for a single person, but very much charming) with a big welcome written on the mirror from Anna saying "have a nice day". Hotel is clean, breakfast is more than complete and starts at 7.00.... so it is good for a worker who needs to leave early in the morning. I did enjoyed the stay.
Nice rooms. Great staff. Beds were very comfortable. Easy access to transit and taxis. Near some really good Basque restaurants in easy walking distance. Lots of shops nearby and right across from a beautiful theater. Bilbao is totally walkable from here.
