Ibis Bilbao Centro
Ranked #15 of 42 Hotels in Bilbao
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 11, 2013

If this hotel were in London or Paris, it would probably be ranked 4 stars. The rooms are large, more modern than your standard IBIS and in immaculate condition. Friendly and courteous staff. Nice dining area near reception.The location is excellent with the hotel only being a 10-12 minute walk to the centre. In addition, there are cafes and bars close by. The only snag with this place ( as with alot of Spanish IBIS hotels) is the self-service coffee in the restaurant is rather insipid. Apart from that, this is an above-average IBIS hotel.

We were at first a bit dismayed by the small size of the room, but after a while realized it was no more and no less than what we needed. The breakfast is good and reasonably priced. The hotel is about 15 minutes walk from the Guggenheim museum and another 15 minutes walk ( in a different direction), from the old quarter. The staff is helpful . Recommended.

I chose this hotel as my many other hotels in Bilbao were full or really expensive - and didn't regret. The location is not exactly central, but the bus station, Guggenheim museum and the old town are all some 15 minutes' walk away, all in different directions. In any case, there are many bars and shops near this hotel. As the area is not the most touristic one, you can find food at very economic prices nearby (went to a bar around the corner, had pintxo and a glass of wine for 2 euros together).

Check-in took some time but otherwise the service was good. They fixed a little problem in my room very quickly. The room was slightly bigger than I expected from Ibis and, unlike rooms in some other Ibis hotels, it was perfectly quiet. There are all the normal furniture items (no safe box, however) and the bed was very comfortable.

This hotel was very clean. Good bed. Good bathroom. Not very big but pleasant. We also had our breakfast there. It's a good buffet with fresh food. There isn't a great variety but the essentials for a good breakfast are there. It's 10 minutes walk to the shopping avenue and Guganhnein museum. From this hotel you can walk over the city without needing a transport. The park is not very expensive comparing to the other hotels (12 euros a day). If I go Bilbao again I will stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms in the last floor are smaller because the ceiling is lower.

I've stayed in many Ibis hotels, in Asia, Australia,New Zealand, South America and Europe. I like the predictability, good value and the usually standard rooms and bathrooms. They vary a bit, but this is one of the best. It's new and well maintained. Efficient multi-lingual staff at reception. Easy secure parking underneath the hotel for a small fee. Good location in Bilbao in walking distance to the Guggenheim or the Old City, but only a 5 euro taxi ride from both. There are lots of good restaurants and pinchxos bars (basque tapas) all around the hotel and a supermarket.

The rooms are standard Ibis, but slightly larger than some I have stayed in, with quite a big shower with high quality Grohe taps and shower head. Comfy new softer Ibis beds, with a pillow top on them.

The wifi works and is included in the room price. There is the usual standard Ibis desk by the window, but large enough to use your laptop on (with enough power points for your devices).

Bilbao is a wonderful city and the Ibis a great place to stay when you are exploring it.
