Great breakfast and friendly staff; also close to the airport.
Everything you’d expect in an airport hotel only more modern. Bathroom was great, bed was big and really comfy, staff were lovely. Transfer to/from airport a great bonus. My only criticism was that there was a bit of a smell in the room. Almost like they were masking a damp smell with air freshener. ...
I chose this hotel because of its vicinity to the airport and because it has a very convenient bus shuttle to it. This is a building that is shared with other businesses. The hotel lobby is on the entrance floor, that can be accessed through an elevator outside of the building (wasn´t in working ...
Close to the Port, service was excellent, very accommodating. It was just a shame that we arrived late afternoon on Monday when everywhere was closed in the local area. Bar area was lovely and fitting for the ambiance of the hotel.
This hotel is just beautiful, impressive the breakfast is great, I can't describe how great it was
This hotel is in a great location, on the river, quiet area, with Guggenheim Museum a short walk away, and the old historic district on the other side. Staff was friendly, rooms were spacious and clean. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Bilbao!
Friendly staff, good location and breakfast. Good for weekend break

Bilbao Airport (BIO) is in Loiu, just over 5 miles north of Bilbao’s city centre. In keeping with Bilbao’s designer-conscious spirit, the passenger terminal has two elegant ‘wings’, earning it the local nickname ‘La Paloma’ (the dove). You’ll find a wide range of convenient hotels near Bilbao Airport, offering ideal accommodation for business travellers and for visitors with an early flight to catch.
Each year around 4 million passengers travel through Bilbao’s airport. You can take advantage of the business facilities in the Iberia VIP lounge at the terminal, and there are conference and meeting facilities on hand at nearby hotels. There is free WiFi available throughout the Bilbao Airport’s terminal building, and interactive screens offer tourist information 24 hours a day. If you’re settling in to wait for a flight, departure lounge facilities include a children’s play area and a wide range of restaurants and cafes.
Bilbao Airport offers easy access to both downtown Bilbao with its museums, hotels and attractions, and to the Bilbao Bay area with its world-class conference and exhibition centre facilities. If you’re travelling by public transport, the Bizkaibus bus service runs half-hourly from 05.25 to 21.55, and takes around 20 minutes to travel between the airport and Bilbao city centre. Taxis also operate on a fixed rate tariff from the terminal, and there are a number of car hire firms with bases at Bilbao Airport – but as always, it’s worth reserving a vehicle in advance of your trip.

Heading to the centre of the city there’s even more choice; the Casco Viejo Old Town is a cobblestone maze of cafes, restaurants, charming artisan shops and markets which dates back to the 1400s. You’ll find many independent guesthouses, B&Bs and hostels here with plenty of luxe touches.

Since the Guggenheim Museum opened in 1997, Bilbao has transformed from a mostly industrial port city to a bustling cosmopolitan centre of arts and culture. No matter whether you’re visiting for business or pleasure, a visit to the iconic gallery is a Bilbao essential. Afterwards, take a stroll through the arcaded Plaza Nueva in the Casco Viejo – it’s one of the best places to discover the delicious pintxo (tapas) bars, which will give you a real taste of local life Bilbao-style.
For a relaxed morning in Bilbao, take a stroll in the leafy Doña Casilda Iturrizar park, famous for its fountains and pond. Then head over to the Old Town and hop onto the funicular railway to Artxanda Mountain, where you can admire superb views of Bilbao over a glass of the local sparkling txacoli wine.
