David was a wonderful host and so informative! He met us at the bus stop and showed us around town before taking us into the apartment. Bilbao is a small city and easy to navigate, and the apartment was right next to the city centre. Would definitely recommend! Thank you for a great stay David, shame it was so short!
Pleased of hearing from you again Sotiris.
I am happy knowing that the apartment was perfect for you.
It is better leaving a city thinking that there is much more things to visit than staying more days in a city and having nothing to visit.
That does not happen at Bilbao :) There is always worthy things to visit.
Todo era correcto. David fue muy majo.
Davids apartment was nice, clean and well located. We got also very good information about Bilbao. Should have stayed longer but hopefully next time. Very satisfied.
Great location. The steps up are a workout but not bad considering the location and price. I'd stay again
David met us out side of the apartment, very welcoming , and assisted us with out bags. David gave us full information not only about the apartment but lots of tips on how to enjoy our few days in Bilbao. Thank you David it helped us enjoy our stay.
The apartment is well located with easy walking distance to the museums, old city etc. Thank you for letting us stay in your apartment. pete and audrey
David could not have been more diligent, responsive, accomodating and nice. He gave us succinct, perfect advice about Bilbao and pointed us to the best places with the easiest routes. His apartment is perfectly located and cozy.
David was really friendly and had tons of advice for things to do in Bilbao and in the region. Gave excellent directions and dinner advice. The place was clean and quirky, very old but had a very cozy feel. Would definitely stay here again.
