NH Bilbao Zubialde

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Everything about the hotel was pefect. Firstly, the location is less than 5 minutes from the bus station from where you can get to the airport and anywhere in Spain. Pretty setting next to the river and the impressive new football stadium. The rooms and facilities were excellent, especially the restaurant on the terrace and breakfast.The staff were very polite, friendly and helpful, especially the receptionist Irene, who helped me out with a personal matter in a very professional way when I had a problem. I would certainly recommend the hotel and look forward to being able to go back there one day.

I couldn't decide whether to rate this 3 or 4. It's a sign of how good an €80-100 hotel can be these days. Pluses - building with character - location (especially if you are going to the stadium, although presumably prices go up a lot then) - breakfast. NH hotels do a great breakfast, and this is no exception Minus - just a bit old fashioned in the corridors. The interior lacks style and character - I was upgraded to a suite, but the living room was depressingly like a dentist's waiting room. Small, white walls, 2 sofas. One was a sofa bed, so it would make a good family room. However, it is not a suite you would want to spend time in alone.

Nice 4* hotel, reasonable price 140/night at that level. A bit off centre, short walk from penultimate bus stop of airport bus from Bilbao airport, also close to tram stop. Comfortable quiet room, right next to stadium but fortunately no match on so very quiet. Other rooms overlook the river, ask for them if you want views. Very good breakfast selection including eggs & bacon prepared to order, real leaf tea and tea strainers for the cups - a rare pleasure. Loan of mobile phone charger.

Best breakfast buffet. Everything you can ask for. Fresh fruits and vegetables, the cold cuts, all kinds of bread and baked goods, fried and scrambled eggs with or without sausages and bacon, juices including carrot tangerine and beet juice, desserts and homemade yogurts. No small details was overlooked, including toppings as pumpkin seeds, caramelized ginger, gellied guava , quince marmalade, wheat germ, and many more. And most important was the presence of champagne and make your own bloody Mary station. Vodka, tomato juice, celery, lemon juice, Tabasco sauce were waiting on the tray for creative customers. Flutes for champagne were lined with fresh berries. Not central location though.

Landed at airport and took bus to drop off about 5 minute walk to hotel. Check in quick, friendly. Next to soccer stadium and just steps to metro and bus station. Several places to eat close. Room modern, clean, large. Fantastic b'fast would rival any i've ever see: cava, fresh fruits, juices, pastries, meat, cheese, flans plus to order eggs, omelets...could have stayed all day but had a bus to catch.

Perfect location when you arrive by car, hotel is next to the stadium not directly downtown. Private parking is available in the hotel backyard for 15 Euro/day. Quiet neighborhood and pleasant 30 minutes stroll along the river to get to the Guggenheim Museum. Our room was bright and big, very enjoyable, classical NH standard what we were expecting. Sadly, the building is poorly soundproofed for a hotel in this price class, from our room we could hear other guests in the corridor and we were unlucky that our upstairs neighbors arrived late in the night and left early the next morning. Highlight was the breakfast buffet; this is most likely the best in town! We were looking forward to have breakfast here every single morning. Really everything you can think of was available, very high quality products, and exceptionally nicely presented as well. We stayed in other NH hotels in Spain; breakfast was clearly the very best here at NH Bilbao Zubialde.

It is a well located hotel. Not far from the city centre and close to restaurants and the riverside. The bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean. I would highlight the quality and variety of the breakfast. The staff was nice.

I was a little intimidated by the giant soccer stadium right next to the property, resembling a flying saucer. However, its proximity to the main bus station, closeness to the tram stop, the convenience of nearby breakfast places and grocery stores made it very convenient. Plus it was easy to find my way with the flying saucer beckoning me. Each night there were a few tapas placed by the water jug, an enticing bonus. The breakfast buffet was out of this world. A real bargain and no complaints from me.

We stayed at this hotel in March of 2017. We wanted to visit the city and I think we made a great choice. The hotel is not really centrally located, but Bilbao being a small city, we walked everywhere. Everything is less than 15 minutes away from the hotel. The rooms were very clean, modern and cozy. We had a room on the third floor and it was very well maintained. Our rate included breakfast, and it was one of the best breakfast buffet in our trip to Spain. I really liked the "Huevos con Chistorras" cooked to order. The server already recognized us and ordered them just as we entered the restaurant. We also rented a car in Bilbao, and the location of the hotel allowed us to be on the highway in less then 3 minutes. It was a very good choice and I would definitely recommend it.

Breakfast buffet was fresh and varied. There was always fresh fruit. You could,also order ala carte. Rooms were clean. Service was efficient. Wifi signal was not too strong. Location could have been better.
