If you are looking for a really nice hotel experience, especially with a family - large (interconnecting) rooms, very large bathrooms, good food, nice professional staff, then this is it. We stayed before leaving from Bilbao airport the following day and it was an easy drive to Getxo, but you would be best having a car and if visiting Bilbao... More

The stay at this hotel was fine. However, we booked two connecting rooms and did mentionned this when we booked through the web site of Novotel but this was not taken in account. This was quite disappointing

Stay here for one night with family and dog on way home from holiday. Staff where excellent and service very good. Hotel was clean and tidy as was room. Restaurant has limited menu but reasonable price and should be something on there that will take your fancy. Would stay there again

Our first visit to Bilbao and thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay. If you're debating which hotel to choose whilst in Bilbao this Novotel should be top of your list - why you might ask?! Excellent location - Euro 30.00 from Bilbao airport to the hotel. Or if you'd rather save money it's extremely easy to reach the hotel by... More

Great hotel, breakfast, bar, service, and room. Internet slows sometimes. Good for families. Bilbao is a pleasant city to visit. Not crowded in summer time. Location is good for travelers with cars, or for those who can walk 10-15 minutes to metro. Metro is convinient.

The breakfast menu was not delicious and the staff at the restaurant was not smiling at all and the did... More

We'd been in Pamploma watching the running of the Bulls, and wanted to visit the gogenheim museum. I needed a hotel with a pool to exercise my back, this was on special, so we grabbed a room for the night. Efficient & friendly front reception staff, easy parking underneath, well designed foyer, resturants and pool. In an earlier existence I... More

No surprises at this hotel. Staff was friendly and helpful. Location is outside main part of city, so a car is best. Room was smaller than expected and an odd design, meaning one person was nearly sleeping with their head in the bathroom. Breakfast buffet was okay, but not any real value for the price.
