Hotel Gran Bilbao – Review

This elegant and designer Hotel offers free WIFI and spacious rooms. Located just 15 minutes walk from the Bilbao Cathedral and the famous “Las Siete Calles” neighborhood or Casco Viejo. 


The hotel Gran Bilbao is a large hotel with 202 rooms. They are all very spacious and are decorated with a modern and simple style where some design elements add a stylish and convincing touch.

Rooms at the Gran Bilbao Hotel are colorful and modern featuring wooden furniture, minibar, flat-screen TV, air conditioning, and a large bathroom.

The Bathrooms offer a shower-bath combo in the case of standard rooms, with a separate shower for superior rooms. 

The hotel has family rooms and it is probably the large hotel with more options for families in Bilbao. 


The Gran Bilbao features a brightly lit and Avant-guard restaurant, a bar, and an elegant lounge area in the lobby.

The hotel has parking and the nearby area is one of the districts in Bilbao where parking is still possible.

The hotel accepts pets though this needs to be pre-informed by the guest.  


The gran hotel Bilbao offers direct access to the A8 highway and is just 15 minutes by car from the ferry port of Bilbao. Very near the hotel, you will find several bus stops that go directly to the center of town as well as a train station.

The hotel is next to a pleasant green area and the neighborhood where it is located is quiet and peaceful. You can find more details to plan your trip to Bilbao in our Bilbao travel guide

Overall Review

The Grand hotel Bilbao offers excellent value for money. This hotel is located close enough to Bilbao to enjoy it by walk (you would be ready to walk 15 minutes to get to the old district. Walking to the Guggenheim implies twice as much walking). 

The hotel is modern, clean, tidy, and with a relaxing style. Our favorite thing about this hotel is the size of the rooms, the light at the breakfast room (perfect for an energetic start for the day), and its convenience for travelers arriving by car. 

This hotel is amongst the best options for families in Bilbao. 

The Gran Hotel Bilbao is nor for you if you enjoy boutique or small hotels and in case a very central location is a must for you. if you do not need any of the above and enjoy good value for money, then the Gran Bilbao hotel can be a perfect fit for you. We have selected four similar options for you so you can also compare and decide.
