Open in 1990, after a complete renovation of a historical building formerly occupied by a well known local newspaper (last print can actually be seen now on the walls), Lopez de Haro emerged as the true five star hotel in Bilbao, gaining a strong reputation for excellence and dedicated service and at the same time becoming a reference for celebrities, company executives and event organizers.
A further step was taken when Frank Gehry himself chose Lopez de Haro as his home during the designing process of what would later become one of the most visited and famous museums in the world and a landmark for Spain and tourists worldwide. A short walk is all it takes to reach the most impressive museum ever: world known Guggenheim Bilbao. No wonder Frank Gehry drew his first sketches for the museum in the hotel rooms.
Le Club - the lounge
Le Club was selected years ago by Moët & Chandon as their reference point in northern Spain. No other location could provide the design and elegance of their Moët temples.
The Murano black crystal lamp inside the bar catches the eye. Two different areas, both for the exclusive enjoyment of the guests with no public access, have been created by the striking red bar in the middle: the classic to the right still resembles the typical English club with fireplace and leather armchairs while the area to the left has been carefully arranged to help relax and enjoy the delicious breakfasts, a TV show or just a read.
A complete and wide choice of exquisite cuisine is available all round the clock in the comfort of your own room just a dial away. Every day of the week.
Famous Restaurant has reopened providing a new classy approach to the array of restaurants in Bilbao with a carefully designed haute cuisine menu in a smart and distinguished atmosphere.

Bilbao is Spain's sixth-largest city and biggest port. It has a number of interesting secrets to reveal, as well as good food, and as a rail hub it serves as a center for exploring some of the best attractions in the Basque country. Most of the city's sights can be viewed in a day or two. Many visitors flock here only to see the controversial $100-million Guggenheim Museum, designed by the American architect Frank Gehry and called "the beast" by some locals because of its bizarre shape. From afar, it resembles a gargantuan sculpture, with a tumbling boxes profile and a 131m-long (430-ft.) ship gallery.
Many of the city's grand homes and villas for industrialists were constructed then, particularly in the wealthy suburb of Neguri. The most famous son of Bilbao was Miguel de Unamuno, the writer/educator more closely associated with Salamanca.
