Hotel Tayko Bilbao – Review

The Tayko Bilbao was built in 1924 and when it has been transformed into a modern bouttique hotel, the spirit and beauty of the old building has been preserved.  The hotel Tayko is 200 meters from the Arriaga theater, one of the top icons of the city of Bilbao


Being a boutique hotel, the Tayko is on the larger side of this category of hotels. Its 53 rooms are decorated following minimalist concepts, but with an elegant and warm color palette that makes you feel at home. 

There are many different room types, some offer great views of the river, and sizes differ, though we could conclude they are on the average size level for a hotel of this category. 

The beds are comfortable and some rooms boast a bathtub next to it. A great feature for those looking for rest or romance. 

Bathrooms are well-equpiied and of a similar size as the rooms.

All the rooms are feature flat-screen televisions, private bathrooms, and complimentary toiletries.


The hotel is located right next to one of the top icons in Bilnbao: The Arriaga theatre

Tayko Bilbao is also, just 2,2 km from the auditorium, the Euskalduna convention center, and the Bilbao fine arts museum. The airport is just 13 km from the hotel.

In less than two minutes you can get to the pintxos heaven of Casco Viejo in Bilbao and to the Cathedral. You should estimate a pleasant 15-minute walk to reach the Guggenheim museum.


Hotel Tayko houses the Ola restaurant, awarded with a Michelin Star, and the Patri Gastrobar, both under the direction of chef Martin Berasategui, who also has been awarded several Michelin Stars.The hotel´s reception is opened 24 hours a day and the staff speaks Spanish, Euskera, English, and German.

Service is correct and friendly.

The hotel has a gym which, not been too big, is well equipped and offers all you would need during your stay in Bilbao. 

Overall Review

If you enjoy boutique hotels at centrally located areas when you travel, the Tayko hotel in Bilbao will most probably be a perfect fit for you. 

The interior design is modern and chic but it has retained the charm and character of this 1924 building. 

You will be two streets from the old district and its tapas and pintxos bars and walking to the Guggenheim will take you 15 minutes next to the river lane.

In case you enjoy large hotels with lots of services the Tayko will most probably not be for you. We would recommend you other hotels like the Melia Bilbao. Having said this, and in case the Tayko is not 100% what you look for but it almost suits all your needs, we believe it makes sense to check its rates since the hotel usually provides excellent value for money.
