We loved our hotel, the Petit Palace Arana, in Bilbao. It was another budget find - just €75 a night - and was perfectly located on the outskirts of Old Town, next to the River. We parked at an underground parking lot nearby (€17 overnight) and luxuriated in the largest hotel room we stayed in during our road trip (which is saying something). The hotel's service and amenities were great, although the well-hyped lounge was underwhelming.

But we didn't come to Bilbao to sit in a hotel lounge, anyway.

  1. This looks like such a cute hotel! The buildings lining the street look like they're straight out of an old European fairy tale :)

    ps I LOVE your "by the numbers" section in each post. I may just have to copy you when we do our Namibia road trip... of course if it's ok with you :)


Let's talk.
