Whilst this is described as ‘Bilbao Airport’ it is actually outside the airport’s perimeter and if driving yourself, it requires careful navigation as you have to pass under or over several main roads to reach the hotel. As with any airporthotel of its nature, ample car parking space is provided. Check-in is easy and some English is spoken. The lounge/reception...

If for any reason it's closed, at least you have some vending machines with pasta and other choices. WiFi is supposed to be free but you have to fill in a form with your personal data...not what I...

Arriving late at Bilbao airport this nearby hotel proved to be both very comfortable and convenient. The hotel runs a free shuttle to and from airport but this is not 24 hour. The room was very comfortable with good bathroom facilities and the breakfast was also basic but good quality. From the airport you can get to Bilbao on bus...

Weekend in Bilbao. Location wise not the best unless your main intention is to reach the airport early or if you've reached Bilbao late at night. Apart from that the hotel is adequate. Rooms are very comfortable and quiet. The fittings seem to be new and modern. Toilets amenities very well stocked. Beds and linen extremely comfortable. The television is...
