The Urban Loiu is the perfect hotel whether you have a layover or flight from Loiu airport, you’re on a business trip, or you’re here to discover the delights of Bilbao and the coastline along the Bay of Biscay.

Our large, comfortable rooms will let you catch up on the rest you need to enjoy the most beautiful city in the Basque country: modernity and tradition mix together perfectly, with the Guggenheim Museum of Bilbao, the Old Town where you can sample a huge range of fine cuisine in miniature, and the Riverside Promenade along which you can discover sculptures by renowned Spanish and international artists: Salvador Dali, the Puppy by Jeff Koons, Louise Bourgeois, Eduardo Chillida and Jorge Oteiza, among others… not forgetting one in particular: “La Grúa Carola”, the red crane.

Located just 3.4 km from Bilbao airport and a 7-minute drive from the centre of Bilbao, its location and direct links to Txorierri give visitors quick access to the main, best-known business districts of Bilbao: BEC, Zamudio Technology Park, Ugaldeguren and Torrelarragoiti, and the Palacio Euskalduna Conference Centre. This direct access also means you can be in Vitoria within 45 minutes, and in Donostia / San Sebastian or Santander in just one hour.

Our spacious rooms with a warm, welcoming, fully equipped bathroom have everything you need to relax: Flatscreen TV, hairdryer, heating, writing desk and fast, free WiFi (in rooms and the hotel’s communal areas).

We also have a lovely restaurant where you can try a huge range of dishes based on Basque and Mediterranean cuisine, with a few personal touches by our chefs, showcasing top-quality local produce. In our café / snack bar, you will find a wide range of Basque-style tapas known as “pintxos”. And to ensure you have the perfect start to the day, a marvellous breakfast buffet.

And to make sure you don’t have to worry when arriving at the hotel, we have a free outdoor car park on the hotel premises. There are also plenty of free places to park around the hotel.
