“Great hotel, amazing value for money.”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

We were here for one night during our trip through Spain and were very positively surprised by this hotel.
The room and bathroom were big and spotless clean.
The breakfast buffet had a huge variety of fresh food.
The service is very professional and the staff is fluent in English and French.
We booked through the website of Meliã and had an amazing offer (€70, breakfast included)
Just be careful when you drive your car out the parking: the way out is very narrow.

The rate for a 5 star hotel was really good value. I booked on Melia.com and made the most of the 10 euro- a day bonus, which I used against room service. The location was great, on the edge of a really pretty park and minutes walk to the Museo des Belles Artes and the Guggenheim. The Andoarabbia tram stop and a small covered shopping mall-the Zubiiarte- just over the road. It is a great place to base yourself if you are staying in Bilbao.

Stayed here before flying home for two nights after walking the camino route and picked a junior suite for the two nights and have to say it was amazing :)
Pool on the sixth floor was a great relief from the 37 degree heat and the drinks and food were excellent and breakfast was worth every euro

Thanks for a great break

Room Tip: Junior Suites are great with stunning views over the park

This was a lovely hotel. We loved the staff who dropped everything when we had a question and needed help. The rooms were big and comfortable. It is a short walking distance to the museums. The breakfast was excellent as was the bar. We did not eat a meal so I can't comment on the restaurant.

Had a terrible experience with room full of ants. Had to be moved to an inferior category room and was charged for the higher category rate that I had booked. Beware. Get whatever they say in writing!

Good location to explore this beautiful city! Max. 10 minutes walking distance from the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum. Personnel is a bit cold for a 5 star hotel. Rooms spacious, clean. Great pool on the 6th floor! The michelin star restaurant was closed when we were here. Had lunch at Q lounge bar/restaurant. The sushi we ordered was old! The chef apologised himself, fresh dish was promised for the next day.
Not worthy of 5 stars.

Absolutely a wonderful experience at Meliã. In the heart of the city, many attractions near by. Customer service was amazing, from front desk, to bar, to wait staff. Will return in ever in Bilbao, Spain.
