Room in Plaza Moyua Centre Bilbao available

Postby El Diablo » April 30th, 2018, 2:55 pm

Hi I have a 3 bed apartment reserved in Plaza Moyua, right in the centre of Bilbao and 15 minutes walk to the Stadium. My cousin and wife have opted for a nice hotel on the coast instead so there is a small double room available with double bed....€470 for Friday and Saturday (€235 per night). The apartment owner will be in his room and me and my brother will be in the 3rd room.
Looks pretty clean and modern from what I can see in the photos. Nice living room and kitchenette. I have already got a 10% discount with promises to buy the owner lots of Guinness so no further haggling on price. He sounds a nice guy. PM me asap as I need to get sorted.

Hi
If you are looking for something within striking distance of Bilbao without getting fleeced, I have just cancelled a room on Airbnb in Cerdigo, 30 mins drive north west of Bilbao. It is on the coast and look a really nice area. I had it booked for the Friday and Saturday. €195 for the room for 2 nights. Ideal for 2 but possibly 3. It is still showing unavailable at the minute but if interested I can send Marian a message to hold it.

Killester Travel just emailed me to say they have day trips for €555 (€489 + taxes) and also have some €65 tickets available.

Not sure if they’ll sell the tickets without the day trip but still might be worth a phone call to ask.

Their day trip is €555, Rugby Travel Ireland's is €564 and JWT's is €670. Ridiculous that the Leinster Rugby official travel partner is charging over €100 more than non affiliated operators.

As expected, accommodation prices in Bilbao are now plummeting (some down by 70%): https://www.booking.com/searchresults.e ... &room1=A,A

Sorry to anybody who has booked massively overpriced accommodation or somewhere in accessible, but I hope this helps others.
The market is being flooded as people and travel agencies are using their free cancellation options, and hoteliers who held on to rooms are trying to get rid of them.

Lads,

I have flights booked into Bordeaux from Dublin 6:00am leaving 9:00 landing on Saturday morning.

Return flight out of Nantes (6 hours from Bilbao) on Sunday at 16:25 to Dublin.

Munster fan, who didn't learn my lesson! Was planning on going over anyway for the craic but it's a little more hassle than it's worth now so looking to recover a little money if possible.

Willing to pass them on (maybe someone might get use of the Bordeaux flight anyway and find another way home) for €50 (bear in mind you'd have to change the name for €100 I think).

If you are desperate and the €50 is too expensive then I'm happy to go lower. Like I said, I'd prefer that it didn't go to waste if someone would actually go to the match.
