Hotel Description

The Guggenheim is far from the only thing worth seeing in Bilbao — but it is the key to the renaissance of this once-drab, industrial city. It is up for debate whether the museum is the cause, or merely an effect, of Bilbao’s new forward-looking attitude, but one thing that is not up for discussion is the fact that this museum is one of those places you absolutely must visit sometime before you die.

Modern and post-modern design have set up camp in Bilbao — Norman Foster designed the new subway system; a humble footbridge by Santiago Calatrava is wowing the archi-tourists; and that titanium-skinned Guggenheim is vintage Gehry. The Hotel Lopez de Haro offers a stylish entrée into this newly stylish town, at a very accessible price. The obvious move would be to try to join in the wackiness, but Lopez de Haro shows restraint, all brass and dark wood behind that stately facade. This is classic 20th-century design, yet up-to-date; black-and-white checked floors abound, in that peculiarly Spanish style, and the rooms are outfitted with antique furnishings, but the lines are cleaner, the layouts less cluttered than in many of Spain’s historical palaces.

You’re right in the thick of the action, a mere ten minutes from the museum and just as close to the old town with its maze of narrow winding streets. The hotel’s own restaurant is a fine one, showcasing the more international face of Basque cuisine. But for the real thing, head for the old town, the Casco Viejo, where the alleyways are lined with shops and cafes — and if you visit Bilbao without seeing the Guggenheim then we don’t know you.
