We stayed for 1 night in a premium suite. The room was spacious & comfortable but lacked effective lighting. On check in we were not made to feel welcome by a rather surly disinterested receptionist. She seemed more concerned to know the number of my parking space than facilitate our check in. We had a light lunch on arrival &... More

A very good hotel with very friendly staff. Clean rooms with a lot of space. Very nice entrance, good bar with excellent choice, delicious restaurant (Aizian!) at the groundfloor. Breakfast is great. Nice heated swimmingpool, my daughter loved it. My favourite in Bilbao. *****

I found the hotel very good, perhaps not 5-star, but a good 4-star; quite modern style, my room (208) was spacious, clean and quiet, and the staff was friendly and spoke English. Really worth the price! But what blew me away was the breakfast! I regretted eating at all the night before since I would've liked to taste _everything_ on... More

I used to travel to Bilbao very often and out of all the hotels I have stayed at, this was my favourite in Bilbao. The hotel is very well located and the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. This time I stayed in a suite and the room (as all the rooms in this hotel) is big and clean, although... More

I think it is a really nice hotel, really practical, it has everything you need, but the service is not good, the waiters seem to have a bit of an attitude, maybe is something cultural, but they are not nice or friendly, of course not all of them but most of them. And on our stay they only had one... More

The Melia in Bilbao had one of the most comfortable rooms. The bed, the size, remote control shades, a fantastic walk in shower , a separate tub made it almost too good to leave it. The buffet breakfast had an incredible variety of breads, breakfast sweets including churros and chocolate, eggs, a wide variety of cheeses and other Spanish and... More

The rooms, shadings, bathroom, beds and the rich breakfast where all very good, but the service in the restaurant, and the flexibility of the reception was not what you would expect in a 5 star hotel. Not to mention the horrible coffee they serve. But hey where do you get good coffee in Spain? Location was perfect, in front of... More

Loved the semi outdoor pool and sauna and had them to myself on two occasions. Breakfast very good with huge selection. Nice location next to a park and easy access to Guggenheim and shopping. Staff polite but not particularly friendly or welcoming. Booked on melia.com which stated we would receive a 10 euro voucher per day to spend in hotel.... More

Me and two of my colleagues stayed here for the weekend after a business trip to the rioja region. The staff couldn't do enough for us and we're brilliant when we checked out as they printed our boarding passes and directed us to the bus stop for the airport. We had great views from out 8th floor room and the... More

The Melia Bilbao is an impressive, modern hotel in a very good location -- takes about 15-20 minutes to walk to the Guggenheim Museum; also right across from a shopping mall. Our room was spacious and comfortable. Could have used more drawer space and better lighting, but still a positive experience. We enjoyed overlooking the park with its expansive green... More
