Feel the heart of Bilbao
The heart of Bilbao beats strongly in the waters of its estuary, in the Seven Streets that formed the basis of the old city; in a Guggenheim Museum that has become a world icon of modern art and in our Sercotel Ayala, a 4-star hotel located in the heart of the capital of Biscay.
In fact, from the Ayala Hotel, it's only a 15-minute walk to admire the iconic floral sculpture of "Puppy", the giant West Highland Terrier that welcomes you to the Guggenheim. You won't have to walk far to get to the Old Town either. About 7 minutes separate you from its streets and the pintxos in its bars.
We will talk to you about the city and everything you mustn't miss when you arrive at the Sercotel Ayala Bilbao. Don't be in a hurry, our reception is staffed 24 hours a day. Feel free to ask questions. Also everything you need to know about the hotel.
For example, the breakfast times. It is buffet style and is served in our cosy café. It is so comprehensive and copious that your real dilemma will be where to start, how to continue and what to repeat. If you have to leave very early, ask us to prepare an early bird coffee for you.
Because yes, we know that the reason for your visit is likely to be work-related. That's why, in addition to that early morning coffee, we offer you a free Wi-Fi connection throughout the hotel and a magnificent lounge where you can hold meetings, talks, lectures or small events.
And at the end of the day, you will feel that you are in the perfect place for your trip when we suggest you relax, after hours of sightseeing or work, with a drink in our bar.
However, if you have come with your dog, remember to save some energy to take him for a walk. Just a stone's throw from our Sercotel Ayala Bilbao you will find several green areas and parks where you can run around. You can leave the slowing down for when you get back to your room. As a good pet-friendly hotel, everything will be ready for both of you to rest.
Ah, when it's time to leave, remember that if you've come by car, you'll have it parked in our car park. If you got here by train, don't worry about getting up early. There'll be no need. The station is only a 5-minute walk away.
