“Difficult to find, probably not worth the effort”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Basic bland rooms, Car Park shared with neighbouring budget Formule 1 hotel cramped and crowded but secure. Poor uninspired Breakfast buffet "Continental" style with the added bonus of cold leathery Crepes.
Interesting that several poor rating reviews are in French and the worst are in Spanish - we live in Spain and have used this Ibis before en route to Bibao Ferry, don't think we will use it again.
Even with GPS Sat Nav very difficult to find and probably not worth the effort.
Stayed 17 Sep 2012

Room Tip: Try for an upper room away from the road - overlooking the Car Park with a distant view of the motor...

We stayed one night after the Portsmouth to Bilbao ferry.This is one of the better Ibis (i?) we have used as an overnight stop. Better than many in France. Staff were efficient and friendly and the room and facilities clean and welcoming. Breakfast was fine for us though not as expansive as in French Ibis hotels The location is OK ,near a mall where there are plenty of food outlets and a large supermarket though not a place for an extended stay.You really need to be able to speak Spanish (Basque) here to eat out which we couldn't so we were helped through the hotel's own dinner menu by one of the staff on a sort of bi-lingual basis!Parking was next to the hotel secure and free.

This hotel was clean, and well equipped. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The location was some distance from Bilboa CBD, we were able to catch a bus outside the hotel, which took about 35mins to the railway station in the center of town. There is a large shopping center opposite the hotel which has a supermarket, restaurants & food outlets.

There is plenty of free parking at the hotel and the WiFi is faster than some other Ibis hotels. However, there were only two power outlets in the room which was difficult when you have many devices that need re-charging etc.

Room Tip: Third floor rooms are good. - no buildings looking in..

Great location for ferry port, even when Brittany staff are on strike. Comfortable rooms, very nice staff who always find time to deal with requests. And Paxi is the best barman, waiter and all-round good guy!

I watch the service of the evening meal which was of small amounts but deserts were being served eventhough people on tables had not finished their main meal. The breakfast was ill prepared and we were waiting for food.

We had an overnight stay in preparation for an early connection to a ferry back to Portsmouth. The hotel was basic, but clean and tidy. Service was good at check in and check out and both the evening meal and breakfast were perfectly acceptable. The are around the hotel was industrial and grubby, however staff directed us to a nearby Mega park which was also clean and where we were able to exercise our dog. I would use the hotel for this purpose again without hesitation.
