Hesperia Zubialde

C. de la Ventosa 34, Bilbao, Basque Country, 48013, Spain

Overlooking the San Mamés soccer stadium, also known as "La Catedral," and with views of the Nervión River, this former schoolhouse is just a 15-minute walk through the lush Parque de Doña Casilda gardens from the Museo de Bellas Artes and the Guggenheim. Rooms are contemporary in style and outfitted with all the latest technology, from flat-screen TVs to Wi-Fi. The restaurant, El Botxo, serves carefully prepared Basque and international cuisine.

PROS

  • babysitting available

CONS

  • when national-league soccer games erupt in the nearby San Mamés stadium, the neighborhood is bedlam
