We were at Bilbao on a business trip. Melia has a lovely room & spacious bathroom. Very good spread of breakfast. Room service could be better & would help if more staff spoke English. Convenient to move around & Hotel is centrally located.Overall, good value for money.

Hotel is smart and clean in good city location. Short walks to museums, bus stops and Irish bar! Room 1028 on top floor with balcony and views of the gardens. Basic gym - enough to get you through your stay. Good heated pool with nice views.

We jetted in for the weekend to attend a Kraftwerk concert at the Guggenheim The room was large enough and certainly comfy. Good view over the river. Nice weather too. Breakfast - large choice and good. The location is good for the Guggenheim and also for the town, Bathroom - large and well equipped.

Lower the overall temperature in the hotel. Change the airco display in the room, it is very user unfriendly. Quality of the Breakfast can be better. Thze shower system in the bathroom can be better. I don't like the rainbath shower and the atlernative is the manual spray which you need to hold in your hand which is also annoying....

Nice hotel in a very centric location. Rooms have a good standard and are clean. Breakfast is good, the friendliness at the reception could be improoved. The bar in the evening is nice, maybe a little cold. Ramp out of the parking is very steep.

Stayed here for two nights and loved the large spacious room and balcony over looking the city. The hotel is well situated and a short walk to the shops, bars and restaurants. The hotel and room were very comfortable and the staff helpful.

The hotel urgently needs to undergo some significant renovation. Room was worn-down, stains on the carpet and from the bathroom there was a bad smell. No amenities like free water are granted. This is max a 3 star hotel. Service at the restaurant was slow and we had to repeatedly correct invoices. Wifi was very slow and reception in the...

The Melia Bilbao is a nice & pleasant hotel, centrally located & with good service. But it misses the mark in a few aspects where a 5 star should not. We spent 1 week during Xmas 2016, which gave us an ample feel for the hotel: 1. There is no one, no porter at the door. But there is a...
