¨Basque-ing¨on the Bay.........

As you approach the Hotel Embarcadero and the elegant sea-side town of Getxo, you are welcomed by impressive stately homes, with their manicured gardens and gated properties that proudly line the promenade along this portion of the Bay of Biscay. The Hotel Embarcadero, a fine example of Neo-Basque architecture, is no exception in this privileged enclave.

Sexy is the word that comes to mind upon entering this Hotel. With a chic colour scheme of black, grey, red, white and cream, further complemented by dramatic lighting and accessories of a variety of textures and finishes, the result is exquisitely sleek. Large windows let the natural light pour into the cosy salon, from which guests can take in the magnificent sea views and mountainous landscapes. Off the salon is a large balcony dotted with tables and chairs – an ideal spot to sip a café con leche and take in the warm afternoon sun or the glorious sunsets.

The Hotel´s 27 stylish bedrooms, comprised of 25 Doubles (four of which are twin) and 2 Suites, offer offer an eclectic mix of 1920´s décor and modern design. Some of the rooms offer stunning sea views, whilst the others overlook the Hotel´s gardens, and all are equipped with satellite LCD TV, telephone, free Wi-Fi internet access, individual heating and air-con, laundry and room service, quality toiletries and hair dryer. One of the rooms is wheelchair accessible. The super sleek bathrooms have either a bath or shower, with the exception of one Suite, which has both. If you love the scent of fresh sea air, I recommend requesting a room with balcony. For those who wish to treat themselves to some added pampering, massages in your room can be arranged on request.

The dapper décor continues right down to the restaurant and coffee shop on the lower level, which opens out onto a terrace overlooking the promenade with sweeping views of the bay. A buffet breakfast may be taken at your leisure, or a continental breakfast may be ordered to your room. The traditional famous Basque cuisine with a twist is available for lunch and dinner offering an ample variety of mouth-watering dishes from which to choose. The restaurant is open to the public six days a week and exclusively for hotel guests on the seventh.

Getxo benefits from 10km of beautiful coastline and beaches, making it ideal for a relaxing break. Soothe the senses with a quiet stroll along the promenade, or discover Getxo on a leisurely bicycle ride (rental can be arranged through reception). A stone´s throw fom Bilbao, visiting the attractions is easy from the Hotel as the Metro Bilbao stops just a couple of streets away.

For those arriving at the Hotel by car, private parking facilities are available.

An ideal Hotel if you are looking for stylish accommodation with excellent service, all wrapped up in a superb setting both in, and from which to experience Basque culture and the best that Bilbao has to offer.
