I stayed in the hotel on the 6 and 7th of April while on a business trip, the hotel was chosen as it is near to the airport and i had an early start back. The hotel is clean and the room was adequate for my needs. My big disappointment with the hotel was no Snack Bar and after 16... More

This hotel had some great advantages when booking it is close to the airport so if you cant find the shuttle a cab will cost max 7 euros with all your luggage. The shuttle is free and if you are waiting at the airport or hotel they will call it for you at your convenience where you can take the... More

It was be simpler to review the room for the things that were fine: the shower, moderately clean and the location. The room was hot (around 30deg) when we got in Thursday night in April. So naturally the first thing we do is turn on the ac to cool and whack it up to full. After 10 mins and no... More

This is a fairly new HIE close to the airport. Immaculately clean and well looked after. I had a doubled bedded room on the first floor looking out at the back over the link road to the airport, but there was little traffic at night and so very quiet. The breakfast buffet is included and was very comprehensive and restocked... More

This hotel is quite close to Bilbao Airport and has a shuttle service. You must await the shuttle outside and upstairs at the departures roadway. As you would expect with a Holiday Inn Express, you can only get the free breakfast, but there is a restaurant in the same building, next door. Breakfast is simple but included in the rate.... More

The hotel is situated near the airport Bilbao and it’s a perfect choice if you need to catch a plain early in the morning or you are coming with a late flight.

The Hotel is located very near to Bilbao Airport (5 minutes drive) and they have a very efficient shuttle bus to transfer us to and fro to the hotel and airport. The shuttle is free to use and can be boarded from the 3rd floor of the airport (which is the departure area). So in case you arrived in the... More

Very friendly and efficient reception staff. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. This hotel has a nice bar and a good adjoining restaurant, although I was getting the "Lufthansa cancelled flight menu" which wasn't very good! This hotel also served breakfast at 5am for people like me who were catching an early flight, which I thought was excellent service.... More
