Clean, quiet, decent rooms and shower. Good breakfast choice. Yes, it is characterless, but it's a budget airport hotel - what do you expect?There is a shuttle from the airport but it finishes at 11pm, so we had to get a cab (<€10). If you're hiring a car, it's worth noting that the Goldcar lot is onsite. Very friendly and... More

If you need to spend a night within minutes from BIO airport then this hotel is your only choice. It's rather basic and totally devoid of any charm or character like most budget chain hotels are but it does provide a clean room, reasonably comfortable bed, hot shower and some coffee with your breakfast (even though from a chipped cup)....

Holiday Inn Express Bilbao is located next to the airport. Rooms have panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. Considering that this hotel is a Holiday Inn Express, breakfast is fair enough. The front office employees are cheerful and cooperative . Free car parking available, and the hotel is about 15-20 minutes driving to the center

I booked a family room for 2 adults and 2 children over the Internet. Upon arrival I was told that they only got the booking for 3 and although we had a cot we didn't have an extra bed for our son. The lady in reception quickly solved the problem by transferring the cot herself to another room. The room... More

I had no previous experiences of Holiday Inn and this hotel was a positive experience. My room was spacious, very clean and high standard! A free shuttle bus takes you to and from the airport (although you may be waiting much longer than 15 minutes going from the airport) in just a few minutes allowing you to have breakfast and...

My husband and I had a very early flight out in the morning so we decided to spend our last night at the airport. The hotel is located right next to the airport and provides a shuttle to and from the airport that takes about 5 minutes. More about the shuttle in a bit. First the hotel. It is clean,... More

Booked last minute as didn't fancy driving the 6.5hrs through the night from Javea to Bilbao to catch our morning ferry back to Portsmouth, so opted for a hotel the night before to remove all the stress. Deliberately searched for an IHG hotel close to port as you know what to expect, earn Reward points (Priority IHG Card), free WiFi... More

This hotel was quiet and pleasant. NIce breakfast including Spanish tortilla with tomato sauce and little containers of flan. The location was convenient for sight-seeing in the Bilbao area. Our room was clean and comfortable.

What do I expect from an Ariport Hotel? Proximity to the airport, fast wi-fi, FREE shuttle services, good breakfast at a very early hour, a comfortable bad, a nice restaurant and friendly service. Well, Holiday Inn Express in Bilbao had it all!
