          This is not a hotel for holiday and pleasure. No outdoor place or serving. The pool is ok, but With too strict regulations of all kind. Rooms are Nice, but no view to the beautiful Bilbao. The city is more Nice and interesting.

          The Occidental is very fresh and contemporary with a wonderful health club and pool. Located above the old city walking down is easy, but if you are tired after touring walking back up can be challenging. The staff was very helpful and all were multi-lingual.

          What is the best way to get to the hotel from the airport? The bus seems to have stops that are too far away, and the taxis seem quite expensive. There will be five of us plus (not huge amounts of)luggage.

          It really isn't that expensive and as for the advice of taking the bus and metro to get there, I wouldn't recommend it, the metro is a bit confusing. Sharing a taxi won't be expensive and will be way simpler.
