If you are in to fitness and you are travelling, the occidental has the best equipped fitness centre of any hotel I have seen, it does costs €8.00 per day to use as a guest but it is worth it, it is huge and has everything! Other hotels, take note, fitness centre everywhere please.

Great room and a great lobby to hang out. Metro station is very close which was very useful.
If you are not aware of the prices and policies to use all the facilities the Hotel has to offer, you're in for a surprise. All the info is available though or should be requested as prices for gym, indoor pool, car park, etc are quite prohibitive.
The staff was very helpful even when we checked in at 1 in the morning! And the 24hours hotel markt was a great idea too. So you can top up water and snacks any time. The bed was also super comfy. It was a great stay!
Excellent breakfast & well fitted out rooms. Friendly serving staff. We had an enjoyable (but by Spanish standards expensive) evening meal.
Preparation of the room … dirty glass & teeth cleaning kit opened & bits missing! Reception staff could have been friendlier. Expensive for what it was & why charge 19 euros for car parking. Pool was closed?!
The Occidental Bilbao is an urban hotel designed to provide maximum comfort. The hotel’s strategic location, just a few minutes from the historic centre, makes it the perfect base for visiting the main tourist attractions. It has good transport links with the airport and train station.
