Hotel Iraragorri Etxea occupies the space of an ancient caserío (farmhouse) dated from the XVth century, totally restored, which has all the characteristic elements of the traditional Basque architecture: thick stone walls and an ancient oak beams structures
This Biscayan caserío occupies a small place in the history of football because it was the family home of one of the legends of Athletic Club (the local football team) and of the Spanish football league and national team, José Iraragorri. Iraragorri conformed, together with Lafuente, Bata, Chirri and Gorostiza, the mythic line of atack of that team, which between 1930 and 1936, won four leagues and cups, the best ever generation of our Athletic Club.
At the World Cup of 1934, carried out in Italia, playing against Brasil, Iraragorri scored the first gol for Spain, being this one the only time that Spain achieved to defeat Brasil at a world cup.
This hotel owns 9 rooms, a meeting room with a capacity for 12 persons, satellite TV, free wifi in every place of the hotel, free parking service and an excellent and cosy restaurant named Petit Komité.
One thing is certain, this small and charming rural hotel, as the property likes to define itself, is more than a tribute to the figure of a family father, the legendary player, but a hommage to that time the player lived through, because without loosing at any time the perspective of these modern times, it relives a very special atmosphere, created throug a very cared period decoration.
Hotel Iraragorri Etxea is very close to almost everything. Only 8km away from Bilbao city center, with a magnificent accessibility by using the public transport, but representing all the quietness travelers may search for their relaxing moments.
