I have stayed in many Novotel Hotels in Europe, and this location had my favorite restaurant. The food was delicious, the decor in the large dining room was beautiful, and the staff could not have been friendlier! The chef prepares each dish in a grill area to the back of the restaurant, so everything comes out hot and fresh. We... More

The hotel is a standard Novotel type of deco and facilities. Good and clean with spacious rooms, nice toiletries and overall good service. As usual, the breakfast is offered with a very good selection although the price for breakfast in my opinion is very expensive considering that there is only so much I am able to eat. Location is very... More

You don't have to stay in city center if you want to walk around Bilbao, you can go by metro anywhere you want to go, so this hotel is not near city center but very close to metro station. The staff is very helpful. Rooms are big enough, the bathroom is very very clean and well designed. We did not... More

This hotel is one we have now stayed at on three occasions. It is very convenient for the ferryport and the rooms are extremely comfortable. The car parking is secure and the breakfast buffet suits all tastes. We will return as they welcome pets.

I've stayed in this hotel a few times on business, and always found it welcoming. The staff are friendly, speak English and always helpful. The hotel is ideally situated for the Bilbao Exhibition Centre and there are various large retail outlets and cinemas a short walk away. The hotel is also well situated for business visits to the many industrial... More
