This Hotel is really convenient for either late or early flights from Bilbao Airport. They have a Shuttle Bus Service working efficiently. Both Check-in and Check-out were fast enough. Free Breakfast is offered to all their guests.

If you are looking for somewhere to stay which is close to the Old Town of Bilbao and are looking for a clean and friendly Hotel, I would recommend the Holiday Inn Express. It's going to take you approximately 15-20 minutes to walk to the Old Town, down a very steep flight of steps (you can choose the modern steps...

We were there a couple of nights to visit Bilbao and surroundings, the hotel is near the airport, calm, nice and friendly staff. We didn't want to get the car into the city and they told us how to get the bus from airport since hotel has a free shuttle there Breakfast buffet was fine, correct

Ideal airport hotel for a one nighter. There really aren't any other decent options should find yourself with a layover in Bilbao... Very clean and nice rooms - to the same standard as pretty much all HIEs I have stayed at. Friendly english speaking staff Wifi is fine for browsing but anything more than that is difficult Good little bar....

Arrived to the airport and searched for the shuttle location. The shuttle is in disguise as it's labelled Goldcar with a small Holiday Inn sign so missed the first shuttle and had to wait for the next. Picked up the shuttle from the airport to the hotel which was quickly at the HIE. On arrival to the hotel the reception...

Great hotel conveniently located for the airport and with on-site car rental (goldcar, not recommended from my own experience). Strangely, travelling as a family of 4, we had to book 2 rooms, as the hotel only seemed to accommodate 2 children alongside a single adult, which felt odd but it was cheap enough

We had an early flight from the Bilbao airport and chose the Holiday Inn Express. It's a 10 minute drive to the airport. The hotel is a pleasant business hotel with clean mid-size rooms, pretty much your standard Holiday Inn Express. Staff were helpful. There's lots of adjacent free parking. The ample breakfast buffet opens at 5 am, so you...
