The unknown "Notting Hill" of Bilbao

The hotel is named after Juan José Irala. At the beginning of the 20th century, this businessman founded a bread production plant in Bilbao and built beautiful homes for his workers, reminiscent of the colourful houses in London’s famous Notting Hill district. Since then Iralabarri has changed a lot but it is still a genuine destination where you can enjoy a relaxed and comfortable stay.
