8.0.Very good.
  • 8.0.Very good

    Excellent rapport qualité prix

    Résidence trés fonctionnelle proche des transports urbains (tram & metro) - Idéal pour une visite de Bilbao sur quelques jours Seul bémol : l'organisation pratique de la queue du petit déjeuner est à revoir (30 minutes de queue quelle que soit l'horaire), il suffirait de placer les machines à café ailleurs pour éviter les bouchons...

    No lo recomiendo

    Nos costó cada noche 150 € y dos días no nos limpiaron la habitación y el desayuno una porquería. Lo único bueno es el personal q eran muy amables
