Great stopover if you arrive late from the Bilbao Ferry - also for a night before return ferry trip if this is early the next morning.
Breakfast / dinner available in the hotel or MacDonalds 200 yds along the road in shopping centre. Safe car parking and filling station next door for cheaper fuel than UK.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2008

We stayed here two nights over a weekend. It's a few miles out of Bilbao, but very easy to find, being by a junction on the A8. As others have said, across the road from a big brick shopping centre called the "Max Centre". Crossing the dual carriageway to the centre wasn't easy, and needed a seemingly long walk.

There was garage right outside too, which had a handy store.

The hotel was quiet and clean, and the reception staff helpful and multi-lingual.

The car park, shared with the Formule1, had a secure gate, but it was permanently open. It also filled up early, and late arrivers may find it full.

The Sunday evening we used the restaurant, which was a disaster. I suspect key members of staff were absent and the two woman roped in to cover had no idea. What we ordered bore little resemblance to what we'd ordered, and we figured out that was all that there was, like it or leave it. The Rioja was very good though!

As an aside, the location of the Ibis Bilbao Barakaldo is wrongly displayed by Google Maps. The Ibis is right next to the Formule1, which itself is shown couiple of hundred metres south east of where it actually is.

  • Liked — Easy access, clean

Stayed here for one night while passing through bilbao. Location is quite good, near to a shopping centre and entertainment complex, so easy to find food etc. Easy access, free parking, and very close to bus stop into bilbao. Staff not that helpful or friendly, but rooms clean and up to usual ibis standard, breakfast lovely... Good place to stay if you've got a car and don't want to drive around Bilbao. Found it easy to go into town - see the Guggenheim and then leave again!
