Hotel Tayko Bilbao
While every bit of its ornate 1920s facade has been carefully retained, enter the Hotel Tayko Bilbao and it’s quite a different story. Interiors have been overhauled with sleek industrial styling involving lots of polished concrete and steel. The mood softens in the rooms with plush fabrics, big beds and – in some – giant freestanding soaking tubs. Many have views over the Nervión River. There are two outstanding dining options to choose from, too, one of which has garnered a Michelin gong.
