Score from 1444 reviews Very good
This hotel is crying out for another bar. The existing bar has an excellent selection of pinches and drinks, but it is small and poky and could never be described as a destination. The coolest hotel in Bilbao should have the coolest bar in Bilbao...
Breakfast was excellent. Ambience was great. Would stay again definitely.
I loved the feel of the hotel, very comfortable and the architecture beautiful. My room and bed were extremely large and the bed linen crisp and white! Very close to the Guggenheim. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay.
-Carming hotel, with a central location -Friendly and very service minded staff -Comfortable, high class facilities
Bad sound insulation in number.
Central location. Comfortable.
Is in need of an update.
A special hotel in the heart of the city. Easy access to everything and secure parking.
Not a lot really but I hadn't realised its €27 a day to park a car.
We loved Bilbao and the Carlton is right in the centre. The breakfast was one of the best ever.
Unbeatable location, good size rooms, comfortable beds
No robes or slippers. Can hear the flushing of next room's toilet like a jet engine
Beautifull hotel in a great location in Bilbao right in the shopping and restaurant area and close to the Guggenheim
nothing really , or maybe the bill :)
Style of decor, service from staff was fantastic. The reception area gave a sense of warmth and good service (first impressions count)
The rooms need attention bathrooms are tired and need updating. Curtains and windows could do with a wash. Doesn't look appealing for the glass dome immediately outside my bedroom window to be covered up with plastic and scaffolding. May as well slept in a broom cupboard
Excelent service, perfect breakfast, great location, nice rooms.
Lousy wi-fi in hotelrooms. Very, very slow. In elevator add suggets what to have for dinner today. When we went to the restaurant the suggested menu was not available that day. Five star hotel should not have this kind of mistakes. Perhaps half of a star should be taken off.
Large rooms, middle of the city, all major spots in walking distance
Very noisy, you hear water noises ( toilet, shower?)all night, and this very loud. No soundproof rooms whatsoever, which leads to a restless night
Could not be better location, facing the main central plaza. 5 minute walk to Guggenheim and right in the middle of great shopping and dining options.
Very helpful staff great location.
Getting a little tired.
Great location - very central to everywhere and especially for transport links. Good service and a classy building. Recommended
Wifi was a bit hit and miss and the cooked breakfast items a bit greasy
Comfort, location ambience
breakfast too expensive at €21
Location is great it looks gOod in the lobby and from outside, beautiful public spaces.
The rooms are dated. It looks like they have been updated slightly with some wall paper etc. but the bathrooms and fixtures are very old school. The AC barely worked and the shower knob fell off when I tried to switch to shower mode. Def not a 5 star hotel. The internet connection is terrible and they try to charge you 5 EUR for the faater one. Come on! In this day and age???
Location , friendly staff , late check out
Great Hotel with excellent location, close to shopping...
Location was great. Bilbao is easily explored on foot from the hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff.
The plumbing of neighbouring rooms was noisier than in our room and could be heard all through the night.
Location good for shops and museums, however not a lot to keep you at the hotel.
Pillows and bed linen too thin. Air con didn't work very well. Restaurant not busy, just us and one on other diner. Wine was supposed to be included with our meal, but we got charged for it. No soundproofing so could hear other rooms flush toilet, woke me up throughout the night. Bar closed at 11.30pm.
This is a beautiful old hotel that is well located in the center, a 10 minute walk to the Guggenheim and 10 minute walk to old town. Airport bus is directly across the street. Excellent buffet breakfast that surpasses your expectation. Large, comfortable elegant room. Helpful staff.
Helpful and friendly staff. Good breakfast. Comfortable rooms. Excellent location for visiting Bilbao.
WiFi a bit slow.
