    “Perfect stay”

    We loved this hotel just as we love the Barceló chain. Why? They treat you really well. No question is a dumb question. Polite and courteous staff. A friendly smile goes a long way. And all very efficient. When we checked in they had a convention going on and they were busy. And yet we never felt rushed. We were checked in fast. The room was super comfortable, a good size and possibly the best bathroom we had in our 18-day trip (nice and roomy for two people). Plus they had a pool which was perfect after a long road trip. Parking is underground and easy to use. To visit the town they have a bus stop outside the hotel and the subway is only two blocks away. If you really want to do it, walk past the church and there are steps down to the old town (it’s a long walk and coming up is a work out). Bilbao is on a very hilly terrain. Located outside of the old town means it’s rather quiet there, especially if you face away from the busy main road. We stayed here three nights and ended up eating here two nights after full days sight-seeing. To our surprise, the food was amazing here (in a city of great places to eat). In fact, one of my best meals was the calamari dish. We ate in both the bar and the restaurant but the view in the bar was much better. We did try the breakfast once, which was very good as well. So we highly recommend a stay here.

    “Gran hotel”

    I like to know when my company sends me to Bilbao that I will stay at Occidental. The location, the room, the service, and especially the restaurant timetable which I really appreciate due to my unusual agenda, is really convenience.

    “Excellent staff ”

    Positives: Staff were very helpful and friendly Great lobby area Very high quality bed Fair bar prices We didn’t drive but we noticed very good access by road and what looked like a decent car park Great city views. We had room 713 - big tip is to ask for a city side room, otherwise you will be on the side of the hotel overlooking a big dual carriageway Negatives: A fair way out of town. It’s ok going downhill to the casco viejo as that is fairly quick, but it’s a monster hill upon the return leg... One side of the hotel overlooks a big dual carriageway! This renders the outdoor pool and sunbathing area fairly useless The rooms are not romantic, they are a bit cold in decor and more for business travellers The indoor pool and gym are a separate business, they are greedy with their pricing and nobody tells you this till you arrive but you also need a swimming cap and flip flops, both of which they will happily sell to you on top of an already high price. We weren’t impressed with this at all. But overall we think it’s a decent hotel for a one or two night stay, especially if you have a car.

    “The Bilbao view!”

    If you are on business or vacation, either way this hotel is perfect! Go for a swim and relax by the pool, eat healthy food with good quality, drink good vine or whatever you like! Work out at the gym and afterwards take a relaxing massage! This is the perfect stay and the perfect way to make a vacation in Bilbao! Weddings or meetings is on the possibility of your hands! Enjoy!

    “Could be better”

    Group of seven stayed for 6 nites in 4 rooms. Staffs are friendly, helpful and speak English well. Good food service. For a premium hotel, it could be more generous in providing complimentary items: Only 1 bottle of water was given on 1st day and no more, fortunately there are welcome water points at the reception. Toiletries are not provided daily but replenished once every 2 days. No free complimentary parking for hotel guests.
