There are several nice choices, but knowing a bit more about your budget and how central you want to be would be helpful.

The main bus station is not in the center of the city.

(With Robert´s permission)

HOTEL BARCELÓ NERVIÓN

HOTEL JARDINES DE ALBIA (this one would be my favourite, based on your budget)

HOTEL CONDE DUQUE

HOTEL HESPERIA

HOTEL ABANDO

This 5 are centrally located, prices of rooms should be on your range, and they offer superb quality at very good prices.

And the SILKEN, of course, centrally located as well, but my choice would be the Jardines de Albia

I agree with Mikel on his choice of hotels. The Jardines de Albia also has a great Spa (http://www.spajardinesdealbia.com/) so that you can take full advantage of your stay.

You can check the ALSA web site (http://www2.alsa.es/). There is an English page if you need it.

They show only the 08:45 bus to Leon via Burgos. The current price is 21.44€/person, one-way. It's a 5 hour 15 minute trip.

The FEVE (http://www.feve.es) has a Regional link between Bilbao and León (19,10€/one-way).

It's a commuter run, departing Bilbao Concordia at 14:30, arriving in León at 21:45 (7 hours 15 minutes).

Renfe also has a train from Bilbo to León (the Bilbao to Vigo train). It's a little faster than the FEVE.
