Harriet, Kate L and Molly are here to help give you the inside track.

Built in 2002, the hotel has a relaxed, modern ambience and innovative interiors. The 50 rooms and suites feature contemporary décor with sleek modern furnishings and en-suite bathrooms in black marble. All are equipped with internet access, flatscreen TV's and CD & DVD players. Facilities include a gym with the latest technology in sports equipment and a spa with Jacuzzis, steam baths and massage service.

The Bar Miró is exclusive and free of charge for hotel guests, a perfect spot to have a coffee, work at the computer or get together before going out to dinner. There is no restaurant, but Bilbao is home to plenty of top quality options. All in all, the Miró makes an excellent choice for a short city break, or a good base from which to explore more of the Basque country.
