I will be in the Basque Country in May. I've got a room for Bayonne and San Sebastian, but am still looking for Vitoria (one night, a Thursday) and Bilbao (three nights, Friday through Sunday).
I'd like to stay around €60 a night, but could go to €100 if needed. My San Sebastian room will be €90 per night, but my Bayonne room is only €52, so I have some money to spend if needed on the other cities.
I'm traveling alone and need an ensuite bathroom, but am fine with a modicum of stairs. While a breakfast served in the hotel is nice, I'm fine without it. I'd prefer not to stay in a place where earplugs are recommended. A central location is key. Otherwise, I'm flexible.
To show you places I like:
In Bayonne, I'm staying at the Temporesidence Cathedrale (superior studio) http://www.temporesidence.com/EN/appartements-services_cathedrale.htm
In San Sebastian I'm staying at the Pension Edorta http://pensionedorta.com/facilities-of-guesthouse.html.
In Bilbao I had hoped to stay at the Iturrienea Ostatua, but it's sold out for my dates http://iturrieneaostatua.com/en_US/.
I thought I wanted to stay in the Old Town area of Bilbao, but maybe I need to expand my search area. In Vitoria, there's the problem that many places that get good reviews on TripAdvisor are far from the center; with only one night, I don't want to be too far from that area.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
