About Silken Gran Hotel Domine Bilbao
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.
