Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Garbine has been an excellent host. She awaited us at the station, gave perfect traveling tips and even attended us with a present. The apartment is tidy and well located.

  • Garbine was an excellent host who made us feel at home. We got a little lost in finding the apartment and she came to find us and then provided us with a map and gave us some super recommendations on places to eat.

    The apartment itself is small but perfectly formed and suited our needs perfectly.

    All the near by attractions are in very close walking distance away and the train station is just outside the apartment to take you to the main bus terminal for onward travel to airport and other towns. Also even though the train station is only outside, the apartment itself is very quiet inside.

    The only downside I would have is that it is not in the best neighborhood, however there were police in the area from morning until night to make you feel safe.

    Many Thanks Garbine, I would recommend to my friends.

  • We had such lovely days in Bilbao, and Garbiñe's flat was perfect. Easy to get there by train or walking as well, located between new and old areas, easy to get there, She picked us at train station, which helped us first time we got there. Then, just 10min walking to old area.
    She helped us explaining best places to go, and helping giving us indications aout transport, restaurants, etc...
    We will repeat for sure!

  • My friend and I really enjoyed our stay at Garbine's apartment! Because of our own confusion and some delays on our end, we were late arriving at her apartment, but she was very gracious and left work to give us the keys. We really appreciated her friendly nature and flexibility. She gave us great tips on the City and was available for any of our questions. The apartment itself felt very private as Garbine's share of the apartment where she lives is completely separated by a door, so we had a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, living room and balcony all to ourselves! Thanks for the hospitality!

  • I had a great stay in Garbine's apartment. It was very light, clean and I loved the little balcony. It had everyting I needed. The location is great. From the apartment I could do 'whole Bilbao" by foot. At night the men in the street can be a bit annoying (when you're a blond woman alone;-)), but it never made me feel unsafe or something like that.
    Bilbao is a great city, just to wander around or/and visit the Guggenheim. I also loved the beach nearby in Plentzia.
    Garbine is a lovely host, very helpfull. And, Garbine, I loved our evening out with you, Etom and your nice friend (oops, sorry, i forget the name..) when we went for 'poteo'!
    If I'll return to Bilbao I'd stay at your apartment again.

  • Garbine is a wonderful host. We arranged to meet her at ten in the morning because parking is a problem outside her apartment. She was there waiting at 10:10 when we arrived and was very helpful with parking advice. She ushered us up to her 7th floor apartment (yes, there is a good lift!) and showed us around before leaving for her work. The apartment is small but beautifully decorated. From the bedroom balcony you can even see the silver sails of the Guggenheim - the reason for our visit to Bilbao.

    Bilbao is a Basque city and a fascinating one. It's NOT the same as the rest of Spain, and we are reminded of this by the amazing Basque signs everywhere. It's a city we would definitely want to return to with a few days to explore.

    Garbine's apartment: clean as a whistle, everything you need; just remember it's shared with her so you don't have lots of fridge space...

    Response from Garbiñe:

    Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay. I'm glad to hear that my place met your needs, I especially appreciate the point about the apartment cleanliness. Because of my poor English there was a misunderstanding, I was not sharing the fridge, all things placed inside were on the house, I´m sorry about that. I´m happy to read you want to return to explore the city, I hope I´ll have the opportunity to host you again.
