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!

This is a great place to stay when you need to catch an early flight out of Bilbao. The rooms are comfortable, modern and clean. The front desk service is very helpful in arranging the free shuttle to the airport. They also speak English. The bar/lounge area is good. The only drawback is that there is no restaurant so you...

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
