A&K Top Tip

Le Café Metropole is inspired by the Bauhaus movement which spread across Germany in the 1920s; the movement brought together architecture, geometric design and craftsmanship, and captured the attention of many respected artists of the time.

Guest Testimonial

"Tea is totally unique - her knowledge of the local area is unsurpassed. Mishlav has a love of his city and it shows. We learnt more from Ivo in a morning than we could find out in the previous six months. I would thoroughly recommend every single one of them - they are all a credit to A&K "

- PS, Essex

Located opposite Frank Gehry's Guggenheim Museum in central Bilbao sits the quirkily designed Silken Gran Hotel Domine. The hotel's striking layout and style is the work of cutting edge Spanish designers Javier Mariscal and Fernando Salas. Upon entry, you are met by Mariscal's ginormous Fossil Cypress sculpture which stretches 26 metres from the floor to the skylight, flooding the atrium with light. The 145 modern rooms and suites provide you with complete comfort and privacy, while views can overlook the atrium, Calle Lersundi or Guggenheim. A Bang & Olufsen sound system, plasma television and Bulgari amenities are just some of the extra goodies available to you when opting for a suite.

Restaurant DOMA is headed up by Martin Berasategui, Spain's only chef to have been awarded seven Michelin-stars. With views overlooking the Guggenheim, diners can look forward to a seasonal menu of home-style cooking with an innovative and contemporary twist. Other alternatives include the 1920s style Le Café Metropol and Splash and Crash Cocktail Lounge, a vibrant space ideal for watching city life go by. Facilities include a modern gym, rooftop wellness cabin, boutique and The Txoko, a cosy library corner with many books on architecture and interior design.
