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... More

Ideally located to the airport for an early morning flight. Complimentary shuttle bus every 15 minutes to the airport and back until 11.40pm. We had a first floor room opposite the lifts with a view of the motorway. Window could be opened. Quiet hotel which was clean and comfortable. Tea making facilities in room. However tea and coffee and creamer... More

Nothing very special about this hotel. We drove in to Bilbao for a flight early next morning. We needed somewhere close and with a shuttle bus service. This hotel fit the bill.

A typical airport hotel but with good sized rooms and decent bathroom shower , even a bidet!. Bust hotel we secured their last room on a Wednesday afternoon so probably good to book ahead. Restaurant next door provided good quality food with pleasant staff, breakfast bust but efficient and no ques,- exactly what is wanted the night before a flight

A very nice place, New, clean and near the airport with a shuttle that takes you between the hotel and the airport. Can also get a shuttle to the bus system that takes you around Bilbao. Very pretty city to visit and very easy to get transportation that is inexpensive without renting a car and worrying about parking.
