Most has already been said. The Melia Bilbao is well located and offers quiet, well-equipped rooms, an excellent breakfast buffet and nice rooftop pool and gym facilities. We had a very comfortable 3 night stay. Disappointing features were the internet connection which was a great source of irritation and the lack of any personal touch. In our experience the reception... More

We had booked a city trip to Bilbao and stayed 3 nights Good location, close to the river, a good 5 minute walk from the Guggenheim and about 20 minutes walking from the Old Town. Tram stations nearby, and bus/metro stations within walking distance. A very quiet neighbourhood, I cannot imagine any room having noise from traffic. Excellent service, even... More

When I got my key (just a few minutes later), I asked if it was on the first floor, because the number started with '1', but no, it was on the 10th floor. I got a fantastic... More

The Bilbao Melia, an imposing building not too far from the city centre, is a very well run establishment. Room are spacious and very clean if a little spartan in their appearance, but the marble bathrooms are splendid with large bath and separate shower. The grid-like windows have electric shades and blackouts which work efficiently. The staff in the hotel... More

The best thing about this hotel was the service. We arrived early so there weren't many rooms ready but the receptionist sorted it out and offered us one. Unfortunately it was a smoking room and smelled quite badly, but without problem she changed it and we ended up with a room with a view of the big gardens in front... More
