Bilbao: City Hotels and Accommodation
The best hotels lie in the city centre, which is around 12 km / 7 miles south of Bilbao Airport (BIO). As the region is particularly popular during spring, summer and autumn holiday periods, advanced reservations are advisable to ensure that you obtain the lodgings of your choice.
Hotel rates fluctuate during the year, being highest during the summer months and dropping considerably during Bilbao's winter period, when accommodation tends to be more readily available. Also worth noting, the city's most prominent festivals can attract large numbers of visitors, meaning that hotels can often quickly become full, making booking ahead a sensible idea at these specific times. Popular events in Bilbao include the February Carnaval, and the Aste Nagusia (Big Week) each August - the city's largest festival, lasting around ten days.
Accommodation is widespread throughout the city and can be found close to the spectacular Guggenheim Museum, around the Universidad de Deusto campus and in the following districts and neighbourhoods.
Old Quarter (Casco Viejo)
Brimming with traditional Spanish character and charm, Bilbao's Casco Viejo is full of narrow streets and historic buildings. Hotels in this area can be found in plentiful supply along the Calle Bidebarrieta, which stretches from the cathedral to the Plaza Arriago. Accommodation in the Casco Viejo district of Bilbao is never far from street cafés and bars, which become particularly lively as night-time approaches.
New Town (Ensanche)
The New Town area of Bilbao is home to an extensive selection of hotels, many of which are just a short distance from the train stations, often offering views of the Nervión River.
Known for its attractive coastal location, many noteworthy accommodation options can be found next to the beaches. Some of the most desirable hotels in this part of Bilbao overlook the Atlantic Ocean and are close to a host of recreational activities and water sports.
