What types of accommodation options are available in Bilbao?

There's nothing like putting your feet up after a big day of activities. There are as many as 60 accommodation in Bilbao, so finding a decent room for your luxury getaway or cheap holiday will be a cinch.

If you're the sort of person who can't fall asleep unless they're lying on high thread count sheets, why not snuggle down in luxury at the Hotel Embarcadero (Avenida Zugazarte 51) or the Gran Hotel Domine Bilbao (Alameda de Mazarredo, 61)? If your holiday stash isn't as big as you hoped it would be, the Apartamentos Turisticos Atxuri (Av de Miraflores 17) and the Basque Boutique (Calle De La Torre, 2 1) are some lower-priced options.

The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is a not-to-be-missed sight in Bilbao, and staying within walking distance can be a great way to fully appreciate it. The Hotel Miro can be found just 0.1 miles away. An equally popular option is the Hotel Carlton, 0.4 miles away.

Is there an airport in Bilbao?

The airport probably isn't going to be the most entertaining part of your getaway, but there's nothing like the excited rush of knowing that your trip to Bilbao is a mere plane ride away! Once you take off your seatbelt at Bilbao Airport (BIO), you'll be 3 miles from the centre of town.
