3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Quiet hotel, close to the BIO airport. The room was clean as all parts of the hotel, friendly staff and early breakfast was also available starting from 5 am. If needed, you can rent a car just in front of the hotel, or take a bus.

Not a lot to be said really. It's a holiday inn express. Not a lot different between one or the other. The staff were pleasant. The restaurant next door was poor overpriced and only two members of staff trying to run a full sitting of 20 + tables we ended up chasing meals, drinks & desserts.

Stayed here for two nights after catching ferry from Portsmouth to Bilbao before trip to france. Hotel was clean and restaurant next door was reasonably priced. Hotel had a nice bar and free breakfast. Not in a picturesque setting but great for a short visit to Bilbao and near by beaches which were beautiful. From the hotel we caught the... More

This hotel is fairly basic but that is to be expected of a holiday in Express hotel. Suitable for an overnight stay if travelling onwards but i would not recommend this hotel for a longer stay/as a base in Bilbao. We stayed in a family room which was a double bed and a fold out couch. When this was opened... More

A modern hotel with nice rooms. Clean room and a comfortable bed. Standard breakfast. My flight was delayed so I could not utilise the hotel transport from the airport. Good soundproofing; no noise from the airport.

If you land late in Bilbao or want to stop for the night before a flight – this hotel is perfect. It's located minutes from your gate. A free shuttle to and from the airport (not late at night) is great. The staff was very very helpful. We had a medical problem, and we got a very good advice as... More
