We stayed in this hotel in July 2015 for 1 night. The hotel staff gave excellent service by checking in early and the free taxi to and from the airport (5 min drive) is excellent. Early breakfast was very comfortable but not very tasty except the croissants. Room was nice and good airco. We really recommend this hotel, very convenient... More

Very Conveniently located near the Airport. specially if you need to catch early morning flight. Nice and clean rooms. Reached very late in night and left early morning so did not see much in the Hotel. However staff is very polite and courteous and efficiently checked me in at very late night also.

Rooms are clean and tidy. Very convenient for the airport. Friendly and helpful staff. Great restuarant next door. Breakfast is ok, could do with more choice but better than some Holiday Inn Expresses I've stayed in.

Checking in staff were helpful and friendly and recommend this hotel as very convenient to the airport. As this location is three minutes from the airport, they thought of those late night guests who need to eat. There is a restaurant on premises that is open late and serves dinner. Shuttle service is provided to get you to the airport... More

Ideal if you are on a business trip and need to catch a plane from Bilbao airport in the morning as I did. Very close to airport. They have a mini bus take you to the airport or to the hotel so very convenient. Room was as you would expect from any H.I. My only issue was that the hotel... More

A comfortable hotel 5 mins from airport. We were travelling by bus to Bilbao. From the main bus depot the airport bus takes 25 minutes (1.45 euros) running every 20 mins. On arrival at the airport pick up the hotel bus from arrivals. This free bus runs every 10 mins. (a taxi is 12 euros). Easy access to Gulbenkian via... More

Stayed here at the airport as flew in late. Great fast and efficient free transfer from airport to hotel. There was a restaurant next door (didn't try it so cant comment). Cheap vending machine drinks and snacks available. Bar area looked nice. Air con didn't work in room, and bed slanted so really uncomfortable. Shower and hair dryer both weak.... More

Its obvious I haven't given this hotel 5 stars because it's not the best hotel I've been to. But I must say it is the perfect hotel, because it stops you from getting up really early to catch flights on time. Apart from that it is in a very discrete location, not too much traffic around so you can get... More

We had flown for 20 hours and decided to stay here before driving off to La Rioja. That was one of my better ideas! From the courtesy shuttle from the airport (the driver refused to accept a tip) to the charming and multi-lingual reception staff, we were very impressed because they were kind and caring people. The room was comfortable,... More

If you've stayed in a Holiday Inn Express before you know what to expect. Staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are always clean and spotless. Breakfast is included in the price which is a basic continental breakfast.
