Petit Palace Arana

What makes different the Petit Palace Arana to its travelers?

We have the honour of claiming that we are the oldest hotel in Bilbao, in front of the Arriaga Theatre and at the start of Siete Calles, the most fascinating area of the Old Town. Originally, the hotel was the home of the Zabálburu family, a 6-storey neoclassical building from 1850 that later in 1909 became the Arana hotel thanks to its new owner, Mr. Modesto Arana. It is here when the hotel becomes the reference hotel in Bilbao and a resting place for historical personalities and artists due to its proximity to the Arriaga Theatre. Petit Palace Arana is now a modern hotel with a privileged location where you will find its spacious family rooms up to 4 people, the incredibly healthy breakfast buffet, free bicycles, free Wi-Fi and MiFi, free late check-out on Sundays and Mondays until 3 pm... But the most important thing is that you can enjoy a truly special holiday with all the charm found at Petit Palace Arana in Bilbao. We strongly recommend you chat with our staff at the reception. They will love to share with you the best stories of the most historical hotel of Bilbao.
