Silken Gran Hotel Domine, Bilbao

As a modern, five star hotel, the Gran Domine has very definitely perfected the art of welcoming - and caring for - today’s visitors in some style.

From the outside it’s clear that the world famous Bilbao Guggenheim Museum, which is opposite the Gran Domine and was designed by the revered architect Frank O. Gehry, has inspired the hotel’s creators to produce a design that is the most emblematic of the 20th century.

Its great, formal coherence is obvious once you step inside. It is a colourists microcosmos with a modern interpretation of the traditional courtyard, flowing interior design and furnishings that include witty and chic style icons. But the hotel’s real art is the way it focuses on human comfort. So your body will be pampered, as well as your eyes.
