We are not the kind of couple who usually stays in five-star hotels when travelling for leisure, but last summer we took a giveaway offer available for long-advance booking and treated ourselves to two nights at the Meliá Bilbao. It definitely deserves the five stars. Both externally and internally, the hotel's design is inspired by solid square shapes with prevailing...

The Melia Bilbao is situated in a new built area close to the river and about 5-10 minutes walk from the Guggenheim Museum with a shopping mall opposite the hotel. Apart from the fast food restaurants in the mall, there are not so many restaurants close to the hotel. There was a supermarket in the mall, which was convinient. It...

My deluxe double room looks onto the park, the hotel is 5 minutes from the guggenheim and 5 minutes from the museo ... The staff are magnificent, the design is excellent, and there´s a...

I stayed here for 3 nights to celebrate my wife's birthday. I would rate the hotel as a good 4 star property, similar in quality to the Melia Valencia we stayed at in June. Everything is crisp, clean and modern. Breakfast was good. The staff are okay but not noteworthy. We were fortunate to stay in an executive room on...

The hotel has great views over the park and a feature fountain. It is a little walk to the town centre, but there is a large shopping centre across the road, with all major brands. The reception staff were very polite and respectful. The winebar is very trendy and dining is very good. The room had great views and was...

Stayed in the Melia for 5 days (12 to the 16th Sep) and was impressed with the service, cleanliness and location. It is a modern 4* hotel with all ol the amenities one would expect. Our room was immaculate with a lovely view over the park and the hills behind. Maid service was excellent, reception staff helpful and polite and...

Hotel very impressive. Nice reception area, very clean, rooms very nice. Staff proffesional and efficient. Only negative pool a bit naff. It is built on the 5th floor on a kind of sheltered balcony. We did not let our children use it but to be honest there was nobody in it and it looked very uninviting. DO not expect a...

We went in this hotel for a short stay of 2 days. We were 4 people and a little baby. The receptionnist was very nice and competent. He had managed to find us two communicating rooms and brought us a craddle for the baby. The room was very clean. Big enough (nearly 20 sq. meter) with a nice and clean...

We stayed here for our son and daughter-in-law's wedding in Getxo when this hotel was still a Sheraton. There was nothing NOT to like about this hotel. We will be returning to Bilbao for the holidays next year and are very happy we were able to find this hotel again-considering the name change, etc. I already let all the family...
