Tips on Places to Stay in Portugalete

Found at the mouth of the Nervión Rier, Portugalete is known for its suspension transporter bridge, the first of its kind in the world. In the Middle Ages, Portugalete was the stage of intense battles between knights, but there’s not much for tourists to see here, so exploring the town only takes a few hours. To continue your trip, you can cross over the bridge and spend the rest of your time in Plentzia or Getxo. At any rate, while you’re in Portugalete you should visit Santa Clara Convent and Plaza de la Ranchería, as well as some other places of interest. Keep reading for our selection of the best places to stay in Portugalete.

Arguably the best place to stay in Portugalete is Puente Colgante Grand Hotel, a luxurious mansion which has been renovated except for its 200-year-old façade. It is located at the foot of the Suspension Bridge of Biscay. The hotel offers 74 rooms with views of the sea and the Bilbao Estuary. The premises can be rented for weddings and other events, personal as well as business-related.

Our second suggestion is the URH Oriol Mansion, a four-star establishment which has everything you’ll need for a 10-out-of-10 stay. The only potential downsides are its location next to train tracks or the slightly steep prices. With the appearance of an old castle, it has 88 rooms and conference rooms that can accommodate all kinds of events. Its bar serves some excellent coffee.

In the area surrounding Portugalete there’s a wide variety of places to spend the night, including Getxo, Plentzia, and Bilbao, but we’re going to give you a unique recommendation in Sestao. The Sestao Naval Hotel is housed inside a building that was designed to look like a boat. The rooms are simple but well-equipped, and their mattresses are particularly comfortable. Both the Bilbao Exhibition Centre and the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao are easily accessible from this hotel.
