Silken Gran Hotel Domine Bilbao *****
Alameda de Mazarredo 61
48009 Bilbao
Spain

This trendy, design hotel is full of fun features, in the same spirit as its world-famous neighbour – the Guggenheim Museum. It was designed by the renowned artist, Javier Mariscal.

The Gran Hotel Domine looks out over the shining steel structure of the Guggenheim Museum – one of the most recognisable buildings in the world. The contemporary design of the hotel follows the innovative spirit of the gallery, with its unique angled windows, curved atrium and tall pebble sculpture.



Enjoy views of the Guggenheim, River Nervión and green hills beyond from the hotel’s rooftop terrace. You can also spend a peaceful moment in the reading corner – part modern art gallery and part comfortable lounge.

For dining, choose between the bar, cafe and on-site restaurant. Each one of these impressive venues is built in a distinctive style of the 20th century.

Food & Beverage
Restaurant: Beltz the Black

The taste for the essential that expresses Beltz the Black's minimalist design is transmitted to the food, where the prime material is the character.

Cafeteria: Le Metropol

Its interior design is a homage to Bauhaus and the designers who stood out in the 20's of the 20th century. The crystallised closing turns into an open view of the urban street with the Guggenheim in full view.

Bar: Splash & Crash

Red and white characterises its interior. The colours evoke the passion and purity that were necessary to believe in the ideals that were forged in the 60's, the period that inspired its decoration. This is a place thought out so one can express themselves openly over a good drink, listening to good music and enjoying a good late night atmosphere.
