We spent two nights here as Bilbao was almost fully booked for the period. Room was nice and clean with a great selection of toiletries. Cleaning staff was somewhat rude and did not allow us to sit in the lounge after they sweeped the floor. We did not choose the breakfast option as the selection did not sound too appealing....

If you are looking for a place to stay near the airport this hotel is ok. The only positive thing is location. There is no aircon in any of the rooms, only one person spoke English in reception and "breakfast included" is a cup of tea/coffee, croissant and juice. You can't even have a glass of water!

A great location beside Bilbao Airport - 5 mins by taxi - bedrooms are on the top floor and very spacious - not sure what the story with the bar & dining - few staff working in this area & service extremely slow & not the friendliest. Train nearby takes you to Billbao - change to metro along the way

I was a bit concerned after the reviews but the hotel was ok to stay one night - flew out very early the next morning. The room & bathroom were clean, hotel was quiet, only complaint is that the bed was a bit hard but not terrible. Not bad for the price/proximity to the airport, just no frills!

I stayed two nights, one before catching my early morning flight, and upon returning with a late arrival. Very friendly staff, spotless huge room recently refurbished, everything superclean and a great cafeteria behind reception with uncomplicated and delucious food. Perfect for a good night rest. Unpretentious.

First of all, their claim that the hotel is a couple minutes away from the the airport is false. You have to get on the highway and go to the next town. And there was no shuttle (also listed in the ad) to take you there, because the shuttle - which I'll talk about later - only goes from hotel-to-airport...

This hotel is located in a very large building, occupying a few rooms on the fifth floor. The reason for choosing this hotel was it's proximity to the airport. I arrived late night and the building looked empty with only lights on in a few rooms. On the third floor there were some open windows and noises of a person...

Wow, this former seminary school is impressive, so huge that I had to walk almost back to the Bilbao airport to get the entire building on my camera screen!
