Great accommodations in a strategic point in Bilbao

The Guesthouse San Mamés is located in a privileged setting. It is well-connected with the rest of the city by various means of transport. From San Mamés Transport Interchange, located in the vicinity, visitors can travel by underground, tram, train, or bus. It is one of the great advantages of our location. If you wish, you can forget about your car and enjoy Bilbao on foot.

The center is just ten minutes away by underground or bus, so you can wonder the streets of Bilbao, taking quiet strolls without worrying about how you’ll get back. We are in a quiet area surrounded by restaurants and shops where you will find everything you need. On days of football matches, our neighborhood is dressed in red and white and you can breathe in the best of a footballing atmosphere.


Airport: Bilbao has an international airport located about 5 minutes from downtown. There is a bus that goes to the center of the city and leaves from right outside the airport. A taxi to the guesthouse can take 15-20 minutes depending on traffic.

Bus: The bus terminal in Bilbao (Termibús) is located on calle Gurtubay at the same transport interchange, just 5 minutes from the doorstep of Guesthouse San Mamés.

Train and underground: The San Mamés Transport Interchange is a small station that houses RENFE rail stops and the Bilbao underground. From here, you can’t take Lines C-1 and C-2 (rail) and 1 and 2 (underground). Similarly, you can use the services of EuskoTran (tram) outside of the station, enjoying more of a tourist-style trip.
