An eccentricity? A whim? None of that. Being The Artist – Grand Hotel of Art is our way of telling the world and our guests that here, the trace of the artist is everywhere.

Just like the artist who seeks to create something unique, at The Artist – Grand Hotel of Art, we have created a unique experience for our guests. From the space, where art is much more than decoration, to every experience. Here, eating, drinking, resting, or having fun turns into something extraordinary.

Marc Chagall said that art is above all a state of the soul. At The Artist – Grand Hotel of Art, every detail transports the soul to new places. Living Bilbao from the passion of an artist is experiencing the destination intensely in all its possibilities.

Located opposite the Guggenheim Museum, The Artist enjoys a constant dialogue with it. Its impressive rooftop terrace, The Rooftop, its street-level bistro, The Gallery, and the secret and exclusive lobby bar, Sixty One 61, each converse in their own way with the museum and the city. Not to mention its gastronomic restaurant, Olio; the expression of local cuisine with a touch of “savoir faire” at the highest level.

Inside, in a contemporary, modern, and sober atmosphere, art meets us as soon as we arrive in its impressive atrium, and then surprises us around every corner, on every wall or hallway.


Its 145 rooms house various contemporary artworks. Some of them additionally feature another exceptional work through its windows: the Guggenheim itself.

Review “It’s only befitting a hotel that boasts the best view of the city’s prime attraction: the Guggenheim.”
