- Cleanliness service is terrible. You can see dust all over around your bedroom. For 2 times we did not have towels and others we did not have shower gel - Disappointing customer service. If you need something or have problems they take too much to solve it, or sometimes they just dont solve it - Team do not know...

Overall a good hotel but in needs of a renovation.Our family room was spacious but tired, good size bathroom. The highlight was the breakfast with a really good choice of fresh products. Was disappointed when the cleaning lady took our daughter new swimsuit together with the laundry and it was nowhere to be found again and the reception didn't really...

I booked the Meliá as I trust this group to have a good standard , it's location in the city was ideal right next to the Guggenheim museum . We arrived and were offered a suite for a small extra daily payment , so thinking of treating ourselves choose to pay . The room was large with sitting room ,...

We have stayed here before and although the staff have never been very attentive they are now verging on the rude. Certainly the bar staff are on a downward scale ranging from unhelpful to unpleasant. However, this apart, the hotel is definitely worth considering if only for it's proximity to the Guggenheim and the other tourist must sees. Unusual hotel...

Very good location near many of the main attractions of Bilbao. A good welcome. The room, a superior with balcony, was good but not spectacular. The balcony had a pleasant view over the local area from the tenth floor. The bar has a good variety of drinks and pinxtos for all tastes. There is a Michelin starred restaurant in the...

I spent 2 nights last week for a meeting. I booked a higher floor premium room with balcony as I wanted a river view. Upon checkin, I was told as a platinum member, that I was upgraded to a suite so it looked a good deal. Unfortunately the so-called suite turned out to be a larger room with sofa area,...
