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 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.

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.
