excellent hotel for a base to carryout a business trip, the hotel is clean and the staff excellent, parking is limited and not free. the food is very good but the menu limited, breakfast is very good and caters for all tastes, Wi-Fi is good I used it for business use and it was quick.

Spacious room, good curtains and very comfortable bed. Walls a bit thin and there was an aerobics class or similar going on below our room. Pleasant staff. Spa is extra but great hydro pool. Location not bad 12 mins to Casco Viejo, 4 minutes to Santuxto metro.

Stayed there for three nights over new years eve and the transition from Holiday Inn to Occidental by Barceló. Great place for exploring Bilbao , which is a beautiful city on its own. Nice modern room and en suite , friendly staff , managed the transition well. Good breakfast, spacious lobby where drinks can be served from a nice bar....

“7th floor room avoided noise from road. Parking is pricey and there is no direct left turn from the opposite side of road.”
