I loved the location of the property. It is a very nice hotel. The men at the front desk could be a bit more helpful and realize that we are tourists who need help with directions to places of interest. They were not bad, but it seems as if they expected us to be familiar with a place we had just gone to. The service in the restaurant is excellent.

We chose the Abando for the beginning and ending of our 10 days throughout northern Spain, and we are glad we did. Easy to find, good location, friendly and helpful staff. We didn't try the breakfast, but it seemed reasonably priced. In a good area, with lots of food, public transportation, and shopping options nearby. A great place to stay in Bilbao!

Well-located hotel

Pros: Good location, clean, good breakfast buffet food (although breakfast room overcrowded).
Cons: Every morning I went down for breakfast the room was overcrowded. Many people on tours eating at the same time. I had difficulty finding a table.
Location: Good location, can visit tapas bars and cafes within walking distance. Easy walk to the riverfront and the Guggenheim Museum. Also Fine Arts Museum.
Found hotel to be well-located, within walking distance of tapas bars, cafes and museums.

I would not recommend

Staff was most unhelpful. Always seemed too bothered to help. I specifically asked if printer in business center worked so i could print out a boarding pass. It didn't and they charged anyway.
