Easy access to any activities we wanted to do in Bilbao. Staff was very helpful with directions and recommendations for transit, restaurants, etc.

Helpful staff. Beautiful hotel. Comfortable bed. Incredible bathroom!

Excellent hotel in a great location. Only issue we had was some mold in the shower, which hotel promptly took care of. Otherwise, very nice stay.

Stayed in room 714. Very spacious for 3 persons. Even had an extra sitting area apart from where the bed for the 3rd person was lain. Breakfast was the standard I've come to expect from Melia - excellent. If you have the opportunity to buy as part of the booking, do so. The rate was about 3-4 times more expensive if purchased separately. My only complaint is the parking. A lot of tight corners as most European parking lots. Can't really change it at this point. I would recommend they install more mirrors in the parking, though. There were at least 3 blind turns I had to make. Guggenheim was about a 10 minute walk away.

Everything was excellent about our stay exempt the staffing level in the bar area. Took too long for service and a number of guests left before receiving orders. Could have been an issue since it was a Sunday. Room was excellent.

good hotel in good location. excellent service.and rooms. highly recommend.

We didn't realize we had booked a 5-star hotel before showing up to Hotel Melia, but were very excited to see that we had since it was our last night of a two-week, go-go-go vacation. The hotel is just a ten-minute walk from the bus station (which was convenient for us), right along the water (which was beautiful), very near the Guggenheim (another plus), and about a 20-30 minute walk to the Casco Viejo. The rooms were large, clean, all the amenities were there, and the staff was helpful and friendly -- and the price was great. What more could you want?

Below average It is definitely not a 5 stars hotel experience
