The Space

Design and furnished November 2011 in a building of 1886. I did it with an architect friend of mine. The Guggenheim Museum is 10 minutes walking from the apartment, on the opposite bank of the river.

You don't have to leave any deposit, or add cleaning fee. In relation with the arrival and departure time I try to be as flexible as possible, but when new guests are arriving on the same day I need time to prepare the apartment. In these cases, the check-in will be starting from 16.00 hours and check-out before noon.

Private parking is one block from the apartment in case you need it.

Most of the house is one single space, the bathroom and a separate room (for my daughter when I'm here) where there is has a trundle bed.

I love to cook so the kitchen is fully equipped. High speed Wifi. Large flat TV. The bathroom has a shower and a small bathroom, two sinks. On the balcony, in the back, there is a washing machine. The apartment is on the second floor with no elevator and is very bright.

Castaños neighborhood is very central and yet quiet. There are 2 good supermarkets within a block away, fresh fruits store, a couple of wine shops, fish shop and some nice bars to enjoy with neighbors.

In the square next to the apartment is the funicular up Hill Artxanda from where a great view of the city can be enjoyed. In Artxanda there are also sports facilities (swimming, tennis, etc.) and is (email hidden) to enjoy a nature walk.

If you like running / jogging the walk along the river is the most popular area in town and just two blocks away.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We loved Asier's apartment. Although we didn't get to meet him, communication was great and we had no problem meeting his brother at the apartment. The apartment is very cool - just like the photos and had everything we needed including a lot of useful recommendations. The location is great - it was easy to get to the Guggenheim and the old town. Although it rained one day when we were there, we loved Bilbao. I would recommend Asier's apartment without hesitation and I would love the opportuinty to go back there someday.

  • Cool and stylish apartment! Very warm welcome and reception from Asier's father! Also, Asier has been very helpful in providing all the necessary information relating to how to get to the apartment, where to go around & nice restaurants! Plus, Asier has been very responsive whenver we sent enquries, which was super helpful!

  • Asiers Apartment is perfectly located, easy to find and near to everything. Supermarket is just around the corner and there are other shops, too. Guggenheim Museum and Casco Viejo and the city centre are on walking distance. You find everything you need in the apartment. Communication and receiving the keys is easy. We had a really good time in Bilbao.

    Response from Asier:

    Dear Herbert,
    Thanks for your review. I'm sorry for the dishwasher and coffee maker. When I got to the apartment both are working fine. I know that this dishwasher is a bit of pain in the ass being very sensitive to stop not to start leaking. I hope that for the rest you enjoyed your stay.
    All the best,

  • We were greeted at the apartment by Asiers father Rata who very kindly assisted us in carrying our luggage up the two flights of stairs. Very clean and comfortable apartment in a fantastic position only 8 mins walk to Guggengeim and 15 mins to the old city area which has fantastic restaurants. Bilbao is a gorgeous city and our hosts were lovely in providing us with maps and all the necessary information to make our stay there very comfortable. I give this a 10/10. Highly recommend

  • Asier and his wonderful father were incredible hosts. You could not ask for better communication to insure a fantastic stay. The apartment is well appointed and comfortable. It's also perfectly located for touring Bilbao. I would gladly stay here again.

  • Asier Perez (email hidden)! Caring, likable, articulate, knowledgeable, and reliable: he was definitely one of the reasons that our stay in Bilbao was a wonderful one. We would love to return to the city and if we’d do so, we would definitely want to rent from Asier again.
    The description of his place in Anb was on the whole an accurate one. If anything, the place exceeded our expectations; more spacious, comfortable and quieter. The bathroom had two sinks. For a couple , that's nice. The shower had an ample supply of hot water. The bed was comfortable. The Kitchen was well stocked.
    The walk up may not be suitable for everyone. However, though we’re in our 60’s and traveled with an oversize suitcase, the stairway was quite doable.
    The immediate neighborhood is small but contains everything one needs: grocery stores, bakeries, bars, cafes, restaurants, a parking garage. It is not an interesting neighborhood, but it is quiet and we value that. The 15 to 20 minute walks from Asier’s place to the Guggenheim, Casco Viejo and to downtown were all delightful. Once you leave the apartment, in three minutes you'll find yourself strolling along Bilbao's beautiful river.

  • This flat is as stylish as it looks in the photographs, really comfortable light and airy. It has everything you need, is in a quiet street and just a stone's throw (well, a 10 minute walk) from the Guggenheim. We had a great time and recommend it highly.

  • The flat is perfect! Cleverly and beautifully designed, it also manages to have a distinct home feeling: present, yet not overpowering
    . Fully equipped. The perfect space to come back to think about the artistic beauties just seen outside. Very close to the Guggenheim and conveniently located to take best advantages of the amenities in town.
    Asier and his father are the perfect hosts.
    A real treasure.

I live between Bilbao, Madrid and on the road due to my work. I'm the one with the orange T-Shirt, my father next to me in the picture, I asked him to help me to receive the guests when I'm away. I spent about one third of my time in Bilbao, where I have a daughter in joint parenthood. I enjoy artisan beer, good wine, I love cooking and learning new things all the time. I cannot live without travelling and meeting new exciting people.
