This modern hotel is a quick 6 minute walk to the Guggenheim Museum. This is an indoor shopping mall across the street with a large public park on the opposite side. You're a quick walk from downtown Bilbao. Breakfast buffet is awesome! Very helpful staff. Our one dinner in the hotel restaurant was quite good as well. Highly recommended from... More

Big 5*-hotel close to and the Guggenheim and the old city and the typical bask restaurants. If you have vertigo, ask for a room on lower floors. The lobby and elevators are open space and if your room is on 8th floor or higher, it can give you a strange feeling. Cheap public carpark 300m away (only 12,9€/24hrs instead of... More

This hotel is architecturally stunning. The rooms are spacious and the breakfast scrumptious. In all ways a first class hotel. If you are staying in Bilbao this is where I recommend you stay. Myosin can easily get to the old part of the city via the tram. It is quieter to stay at the Melia and close to the art... More

We stayed for 2 days and everything was very good in this modern hotel. The room, the smiley and quickest service, I've ever seen in hotel. Quality in everything. The reception helpful in everything we ask(information...e.t.c.), the breakfast (a bit expensive) very-very good. The first day we had a dinner with risotto (gorgeous!!!) and chicken with vegetables (excellent ,as well..).... More

I had to use a bit of native cunning to get a car parking spot in the hotel car park. The room was modern and functional but the decor was passe. Our room was overlooking the "light railway system which shook the very bed. The food offering was atrocious and definitely the worse of any hotel I have ever visited.... More

I really liked the Melia big room lovely bathrooms and close to Guggenheim( 10 min walk). It's about a 30 min walk to the old town which is where we spent most time - but you can get the tram. The park next door is really lovely with great Henry Moore Sculptures. Thought breakfasts were great but the bar service... More

This hotel met all our expectations. Generous rooms with large bathrooms. The staff was extremely helpful with directions/booking cabs and references on what we needed to see. It backs up to an amazing beautiful park. Breakfast buffet was extensive and quite good.

Overall this was a great hotel! Very spacious for European hotels and has an excellent bathroom! Most of the bathrooms are tiny but not here. You almost feel like you have a suite! This hotel also has a great location near the water and a park! Only two complaints. The internet you have to re-log into every time you want... More
