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.
Perfect Hotel in the historical centre of Bilbao. The rooms are modern and spacious. The hotel itself has old world charm, so beautiful and quaint. I requested the Romance Package and upon arrival we were surprised with Cava, love sayings, chocolates, robes/slippers. It was amazing! The staff was great, friendly, and helpful. The entire hotel, including rooms & bathrooms were very spacious & clean. I would absolutely recommend Petit Palace Arana Bilbao!
we stayed for four nights this week, and i have to say that we travel extensively but rarely have we received the kind of service extended to us from this Hotel. The reception staff are absolutely delightful, and could not help enough with any requests that were made, truly lovely people, each one of them. The restaurant staff also were very helpful, always smiling, nothing too much trouble. The rooms were adequate, although a little in need of updating, the bed in room 409 was very comfy indeed.but the shower wasn't one of the best we've used. all in all a very pleasant stay.
"Great location but small"
The location is absolutely wonderful. Just a €25 ride from the airport and in the heart of the old town. There are coffee shops and wonderful restaurants all around, just a short walk to the Guggenheim Museum too. The tram stops are close by and the underground trains are easily accessible. The wifi is free and fast, the breakfasts are plentiful, with enough variety to please everyone. The heating was on when we went in March which means that you can have as much warmth as you need. The staff are friendly and helpful with good English. The rooms are very small with no drawer/shelf space. I was here on business for a week and had to live out of my suitcase. I was not expecting a camp style bed for this price, though it was comfortable. The whole place is tired and needs a good scrub in the corners. So balance what you need when you make your choice. A great location with the expected noise, free wifi but small rooms, friendly staff but nowhere to put clothes.
"Ideal, central Bilbao hotel"
Lovely hotel, right on the edge of old town Bilbao and across the road from the river. Staff really helpful and friendly, nothing was to much trouble. Room was clean and comfortable. The buffet breakfast was adequate, although the serving area was a little cramped and chaotic when busy.
"Great location and welcoming staff"
It is very well located, just where start the "Old town", and by the river - you can walk to Guggenheim museum. The staff is really welcoming, and the hotel is very nice, maintaining traditional architecture, and with nice details to welcome also children. Very clean and not wasting any space. the breakfast is very nice, with good variety - cold, hot, salted, sweet, and according to several diet needs.
