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.
"great place to stay"
excellant location. clean and modern rooms with great shower. only negative was there was no facilities in the room to make tea or coffee. would definitely recommend to friends and family and would be happy ro return. wide variety food for breakfast - particularly the fresh fruit and smoothies.
"A fabulous welcome from staff"
This hotel is in my opinion in one of the best locations in Bilbao. The staff were extremely welcoming and were helpful. We already want to go back and will be returning. Our room had everything we needed and was cleaned through every day. Top marks!
"Perfectly pet friendly!"
This great little hotel in the centre of Bilbao is perfect if you are travelling with your dog . Not only do they welcome pets with a dog bed, bowls and food!!!! ... THEY DON'T CHARGE ANY EXTRA!!! We checked out several other pet friendly hotels in Bilbao and they all wanted an extra 30 or so euros per night and provided nothing for that. They still don't allow pets in any other part of the hotel and say that you can't leave them in the room for more than half an hour. The buffet breakfast at the Petit Palace has everything you could want. Try the delicious Tarta de Santiago, made with almonds. Mmmmmm! Just cannot fault this hotel, the reception Staff are extremely helpful and speak excellent English. It's so perfectly situated for the Guggenheim, the Casco Viejo and the river, we wouldn't stay anywhere else in Bilbao now we've discovered the Petit Palace!
"Just a perfect Location!"
Very nice spot to stayed with friendly and helpful staff! Their English was excellent! Modern and comfortable rooms. Excellent breakfast with lots of options! Notice, if you travel by car, parking is 100mts away in a public underground parking!
The location of this Hotel is just perfect. Located in the "Casco Viejo" (old town), just by the theatre with very nice views to the River and to the El Arenal garden. Near the Gran Via and a 10/15min pleasant riverside walk to the Guggenheim. The tram and bus have stops just across the street. If you travel by car, parking is 100mts away in a public underground parking (parking on the street is just impossible). The Hotel is in an old historical building, that has been renovated. The rooms are comfortable and spacious enough, although the insonorisation could be better. Breakfast is very good, lots of options (Healthy ones too!).
