López de Haro

Calle Obispo Orueta 2–4, Bilbao, Basque Country, 48009, Spain

Five minutes from the Guggenheim, this luxury hotel is under the same ownership as the Ercilla and, like its sister hotel, is becoming quite a scene now that the city is a bona fide contemporary art destination. A converted 19th-century building, the López de Haro has an English feel and all the comforts your heart desires. Rooms are classical in design, yet feel contemporary in equipment and comfort. The trendy in-house bar-restaurant, The Lounge, serves modern Basque dishes and cocktails—a handy alternative on one of Bilbao's many rainy evenings.

PROS

  • state-of-the-art comfort, service, and cuisine
  • traditional and aristocratic setting

CONS

  • a less-than-relaxing, slightly hushed and stuffy scene
  • not for the shorts-and-tank-top set
