Holiday Inn Express Bilbao

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Really nice hotel, close to the airport; their early morning shuttle is free & well-organized; good breakfast.

the room is very small for two people. the only restaurant within walking distance is within the hotel: the service was adequate but the quality if food and and food preparation was sub standard. it was more of a fast food diner with restaurant prices.

We were delighted with the hotel. It's close to the airport and the staff is ready to assist in any way.

Great value, clean, free wifi, great location near airport

We were arriving late to Bilbao and needed a place to crash before returning to the airport the next morning to pick up a rental car. This couldn't have been better for our needs. Their shuttle circles the airport every 10 minutes or so and the hotel was a 3 minute ride away. Our room was clean, quiet, and had some lovely design touches - the blue bathroom lighting, the velvet-y curtains - that were far more upscale than your typical Holiday Inn Express. Quick, free internet. Large breakfast buffet. Friendly service, good English. Perfect for our needs. Recommended.

Very clean and new. The front desk staff was very helpful. Airport shuttle was incredibly efficient.

We wanted an hotel near the airport and with easy access to downtown Bilbao and the highway to San Sebastian. We got all three. You can almost walk to the terminal and parking was easy and free. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Brekafast was ok for US standard but much lower of what you find in a typical Spanish hotel.

This was a great location when departing Bilbao as it was the closest hotel to the airport.
