Everything was perfect! Very close to the Guggenheim Museum and other attractions , the Host was great , she explained to us all the details about the apartment. It was nicely decorated and my 7-year old daughter loved her girl's room. The place is highly recommended and Marta is an excellent host !
This is a lovely apartment - comfortable, well-equipped and in an ideal location to see the whole of Bilbao (a quick stroll to the casco viejo and an easy walk to all parts and sites of the new city). And, if you have time, take advantage of the great bus links to other towns in the region. We visited St Juan de Gaztelugatxe (at Marta, the host's, suggestion) and Gernika on a day trip - which were both well worth the effort (and really cheap to visit - with a Barik card which covers all public transport). And a special mention to staff in the Tourist Information centre next to Abando metro stop (a ten minute walk from the apartment). They were really helpful. Marta was great too, and very responsive when we made a request (for a fan) at the start of our visit - it arrived the next day!
The apartment is beautifully renovated and in top shape. Old details have been preserved and it has a modern bathroom and we'll equipped kitchen. There is a lot of small rooms in this cozy place. Three fully separate bedrooms allow for privacy, but it should be noted that noise from the street is audible through the old windows. The location is great on a small narrow side street just a few minutes walk to old town and the river. The view over the valley is just spectacular.
We absolutely loved our stay at Marta's apartment. It is even more gorgeous than the lovely pictures show. The view from the living room is stunning. The decoration is perfect throughout and it was very clean and comfortable for two couples, with an extra bedroom for kids. Marta was a gracious host and very easily to contact. We absolutely recommend this apartment and would love to stay again!
