Great location. Car park a nightmare. So tight and down 3 levels. Have to then take luggage up. Need small car. Beds curved like a banana but my wife said it was nice and soft.
Location was very good
One bed in the room had a very sagging mattress. The other one was fine
I booked hotel about 2 weeks before my trip, so, it was pretty close, and Bilbao very popular city, so, it was difficult to find something good, but not expensive. And it was my lucky chance to book last room in Pension Bilbao. Location is just perfect. It is close to the Metro Abando, and lots of things are just on walking distance. The river in 2 minutes. It is very nice to walk along, to go to Guggenheim museum, etc. My room had a balcony, that is always a great possibility to have a balcony for me (only two rooms in this pension have a balcony). The street is a pedestrian street, several cafes around. It is pretty loud in the evening, but calm enough during the night (except my Friday night;) Cleaning the room was every single day, even Saturday and Sunday, every day used towels were changed, bed clothes were changed in three days.
The only one strange thing I would like to mention: in the amenity list was a kettle, and I asked about it, and I got it. But electricity system of Pension Bilbao couldn't handle this electric kettle, several times, when I just turned it on, the light went out. And one time it happened in the evening when there was a guy on reception desk (according the note somebody has to be there from 9:00 to 22:00), and he fixed the problem (ones, and then the second time). But next time it happened at ~20:00, and there was no guy, and he left his phone in the room next to the reception desk, so, it was helpless to call him. And final time it happened in the morning, my departure date, and it was about 8:00, so I couldn't get my morning tea. So, they definitely have to have more powerful electric system and automatic fuses.
Friendly staff, nice city, loved the Guggenheim. Very walkable. Fun seeing families in costume for Carnival. ..
Parking garage was too tight, couldn't park there. Room was very small, ended up staying elsewhere. Confusing driving on walking type of streets, ended up doing sp anyway.
The young man that checked us in was very helpful and spoke good English. And the room was clean.
The room allocated as not what I booked and confirmed, twin beds not a double and should have had a view. The car parking was a night mare to find. I got what I paid for I suppose and thank goodness it was for one night.
With a stay at Pensión Bilbao in Bilbao (Abando), you'll be within a 10-minute drive of Guggenheim Museum Bilbao and Plaza Moyua. Featured amenities include multilingual staff and luggage storage. Self parking (subject to charges) is available onsite.
