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 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

Clean rooms with efficient friendly reception, this hotel is ideal for the airport for which there is a free shuttle. Breakfast is included. There is little around apart from what would appear to be warehouses but it is ideal for late arrivals or early departures. I think the place has a restaurant and bar.
