Hotel Miró is located kitty-corner from El Gug (the Guggenheim). The property's minimalist, sleek interior was created by Barcelona fashion icon Antonio Miró and it is a member of Design Hotels.
Apart from conveying a great sense of place, what made my heart beat a little faster, is their extensive collection of intriguing contemporary photography, featured prominently throughout the public areas and suites. No wonder the art and design crowd loves staying here! It is definitely one of my favorites in Bilbao.
A warm thank you:
