About Us

Open in 1990, after a complete renovation of a historical building formerly occupied by a well known local newspaper (last print can actually be seen now on the walls), Ercilla Lopez de Haro emerged as the true five star hotel in Bilbao, gaining a strong reputation for excellence and dedicated service and at the same time becoming a reference for celebrities, company executives and event organizers.

A further step was taken when Frank Gehry himself chose Ercilla Lopez de Haro as his home during the designing process of what would later become one of the most visited and famous museums in the world and a landmark for Spain and tourists worldwide. The very first sketches for the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum with his first ideas for the site and structure were actually drawn on Ercilla Lopez de Haro letterhead stationery.

Nowadays the Lopez de Haro is going through a new renovation that will update its facilities and services and surely provide greater comfort and satisfaction to our guests.
