Fantastic place to stay in Bilbao - very close walk to the Guggenheim and to restaurants and bars. The staff were very helpful and of course spoke immaculate English! We arrived early before our room was ready so left our bags while we went out. When we got back, all had been put safely in our room. The kids loved... More

This hotel is right by the river, which includes a great riverwalk that highlights the amazing changes this city has gone through (from the polluted, industrial center of the Basque Country to the artsy, business-focused international city it has become). It's also near the Guggenheim (which is the most awe-inspiring building I think I've ever seen) and a bunch of... More

Just not up to 5* standard, front entrance is like where you pick up online orders at the back of M&S. Breakfast area is chaotic to say the least. One morning we were directed to sit in the bar, a full 20 metres from the nearest food station. We refused and were the shown to a table that had become... More

Hotel and staff were wonderful. Unfortunately, we traveled by car and used the hotel car park (24€ per day!) which is basically dangerous to navigate. There is a dog leg right with a big drop that scraped the bottom of my car. Poor for 5 stars

Decent hotel with a nice lobby. Parking is expensive, location is perfect. Nice workout room with a pool for a quick dip. Room a little rundown but comfortable. Spent three days did not use the breakfast or restaurant. Easy access to airport with bus service.

Great location. Stylish hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff. I get the comments about this not being a true 5* hotel and I'd probably agree, especially if paying full business rates, but for a family of 4 at the price we paid for 2 adjoining rooms it was a great stay in a wonderful vibrant city. Underground car park was... More

I stayed three nights at Melia Bilbao. Convenient location for tourists. Next to a shopping center and a park. Eight minutes walk to Guggenheim Museum. Five minutes walk from airport bus stop Gran Via. Tram line outside the hotel. Three tram stops to bus station and one tram stop to Guggenheim. Beautiful bathroom. Great breakfast.

We arrived not knowing a huge amount about Zarautz, imagining it to be a daily base for us to visit San Sebastián. As it turned out, we only visited San Sebastián once in a five night stay, as all of the family loved Zarautz so much, particularly the fantastic beach and surf. We had a fantastic welcome from the lovely... More

We spent a long weekend with family at this property. Location is great, very close to the Guggenheim (a short walk of tram journey) and opposite a lovely park. The hotel is a bit of a giant construction and feels a bit "impersonal" on arrival...more a business hotel than a leisure one. Reception staff was very friendly and helpful. The... More

Melia was so great to us. We arrived late and they told us exact walking directions to the old city (25 min walk), which is lovely along the river. Guggenheim only 5 mins walk away. We relaxed at the infinity terrace pool and then in the sauna while we walked around in bathrobes. Only downside was a slight smell and... More
