NOVOTEL disappointed me. I'm frequent traveler, this hotel has the worst coverage that I have eve had. The staff argued there was a lot of people using internet at the same time as the hotel was full. Came on guys we are already in 2017

We stayed in this hotel for two nights in a family room. We benefit of a special offer for families with young kids (ours 7 and 11). The family room had two double beds. The smallest was good for our girls but might be a bit small for bigger/older kids. The room was not super large but it was comfortable...

We stayed here because we were doing the music festival at the Exhibition Centre - it's about a ten minute walk (and a couple of minutes further to the Metro, whereupon Bilbao is yours to roam as you wish). It was clean, comfortable; our room has as good a view as you could hope for in the area - yeah,...

A warm and friendly hotel in close proximity to Bilbao Port. Takes about 10 minutes from the hotel. Recommended to use a SatNav to find your way to the Port as there are several interlinking roads going in different directions. The hotel is well managed and clean in all areas. The staff are very courteous and helpful. Our room, 515,...

Standard facilities as expected in a Novotel hotel, nothing to rave about. Restaurant menu limited and not much choice. Breakfast is good. Car park a bit difficult to find as entrance is behind the hotel on a service road. Corridors are long so if your room is not near the lift, you have a long walk to your room.

We visited Bilbao for a weekend break and needed a family room. Novotel was the best option for our budget and is a chain we use often, so we were happy to go with it. We went to the hotel straight from the airport in a taxi, which cost €30 (rounded up) for four of us. At check in we...
