|the view from our hotel room in the petit palace arana|
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.
