Albergue Plencia-Plentziako Aterpetxea: 25 kms from Bilbao

It´s the village where I live. It´s 25kms from the city of Bilbao and you can arrive here by metro.
There are ping-pong tables, basquetball and football fields near it.
Next to the river and 10 minutes walking from the beach.
Plentzia is a nice place to stay, specially in spring because it´s too busy in summer.
I recomend to show your International Hosteling card, they may ask you for it.

Pension de la Fuente: Nice little pension

We had a pleasant stay here, it is a little family run pension. Right in the middle of the old town.
So only thing you have to do get into the action is to open the door and get out :)

You have two types of rooms, with bathroom, and with shared bathroom. But even the shared ones are very, very clean, so no worries there :)

The rooms are big enough and clean, only one very small problem.

As we dutch are a bit longer than the spanish, the beds can be a bit small sometimes LOL, but this is common throughout the whole of spain.

Right in the middle of the centre.

Ibis Hotel: Budget option

The hotel is located in the suburbs of the city next to big shopping centre. It's easy to go to the city with the car but I'm not sure about the public transport.
Simple and clean, nothing fancy. The breakfast was quite good, they had more thigs to choose then most of other hotels in the chain.

Carlton is Elegant, Ercilla is trendy: Much more choice in Hotels now

When I wrote this tip, there was a hotel shortage in Bilbao. This is not the case now, although it can be difficult to find accomodation at peak times, and the accomodation tends towards the upper end of the market. More hotels are still being built, such as a new IBIS hotel in General Concha.

Just check that the hotel you have found is in Bilbao. Some things sold as Bilbao can be out of town and may not be convenient for the city.

The Basque country has many modern and elegant hotels, but also offers charming smaller establishments, camping sites and rooms in country houses, with full facilities and comfort at modest prices. In fact, this option of accommodation in a rural setting has recently become a good alternative for the tourist wishing to get closer to nature and experience the Basque customs, and to be received with a warm and personal welcome.

Pension Arsuaga (SAN...

Pension Arsuaga (SAN SEBASTIAN)
£10 per person, per night

This clean and functional Pension is in the heart of the Old Town area and a short walk from the beach, surrounded by Tapas bars and pubs. The pension has rooms in other buildings around the town. Our room was in another building and we had 2 bathrooms (with bath and shower) between 5 of us, shared with only 1 other room. The staff were very friendly and the beds were comfortable and clean. Take ear plugs as the rooms are noisy!

Hotel Arana (BILBAO): Hotel Arana (BILBAO)

£15 per person, per night in double rooms with private bathroom

Clean and functional 2 star hotel in the centre of the Old Town district of Bilbao, and a 20 minute riverside walk from the Museo Guggenheim. We took an internal room (away from street noise) with a private bathroom. It was perfectly fine and the staff were very friendly and informative.
