I stayed there with a friends for one night, it was a group travel. Room was very nice, clean, but we had a problem with a window who was opening almost all night, because of the wind. Breakfast was tasty. Great value for money!

We chose to stay here at the end of our holiday having travelled up from Andalucía. Our party of four, two adults and two children15 and 22 occupied two rooms next door to each other. Both rooms were clean and we appreciated the air conditioning. We chose to eat in the hotel that evening and had a pleasant meal. We... More

It's just the perfect hotel for anyone flying from Bilbao. Friendly personnel and nice room. Recommendable 100%. Wifi available but charged. Nice restaurant in the first floor. There is a rental bike service and the surroundings are quite inviting for a bike ride. Shuttle to airport available.

My partner and I stayed for three nights with a room to the front. We had the window open the first night but it was noisy. The room had two three quarter sized beds which individually were too big (?) for one but too small for two and on castors so tend to move around. The room was pleasant and... More

We stayed here using IHG points and upgraded to a Junior Suite. Very spacious with a huge bed. Hotel is new and has a modern feel. Staff were extremely helpful, especially Carmen on reception. Breakfast was standard Holiday Inn fare on the continent. Hotel is close to the Metro and only 3 stops to the Guggenheim Museum.

Stayed a couple of nights in April. Service was efficient. Room was clean. Fell in love with the city of Bilboa. Great place for a visit. Looking forward to going back. Lots to see and do in the city. The old waiter is defiantly worth a visit for lunch, shopping or on the evening to do some people watching...just sit... More
