Hotel in Bilbao was very booked up during the 2 nights I spent there. It is very close to the airport but I didn't hear any aircraft at all. Reason for that was, that planes were not flying at night time. I don't usually stay at Holiday Inns but this one was good value for money. The price included a... More

It looks like all Holiday Express with the same standards and everything correct. If you have an early fly it is the best option. Service was ok and prepared to support all kind of customers. There is far from bilbao

Years ago during our holidays in Portugal, we stayed a lot in Holiday Inn Express Lisbon, which we always enjoyed. On our way back from Portugal to the Netherlands, we wanted to stop for the night and we checked a couple of hotels on the route. All where booked, but Holiday Inn Expres Bilbao had one room left. Althought it... More

This hotel is in the airport area and they offer free shuttle buss to airport. Hotel is quite modern and standard holiday inn quality. My room was some kind of special for invalids I guess.

Standard international chain. Very useful for the airport, the free shuttle runs from 5am until 11.45pm. If you are a light sleeper this hotel is not the best, the walls are very thin and you can definitely hear the motorway just outside.

Sure its a Holiday Inn and it's right next to the airport but that's exactly what I needed and this one delivered without a hitch. Checking in was a breeze and the lady at reception was extremely helpful and spoke great english. The room was much larger than I was expecting for the "cheap" double, with new furnishings and a...

One would think that HIEx hotels all over the world are the same. Maybe so, but I think this one deserves a special mention. For one thing, it's the first hotel in ages where we've had zero problems on check in. We requested 2 connecting rooms - no problem at all, didn't even need to remind them. Extra bed for... More

Maybe we have stayed so far at least fifty different Holiday Inn Express Hotels. This chain offers fairly good service, affordable price and you get what you pay for without any unexpected surprise, that’s why, we normally don’t attempt to review Hi-Ex Hotels. This hotel at Bilbao Airport surprisingly exceeds the average standards of this chain. Rooms are comfortable, maintenance... More
