Ibis Bilbao Barakaldo
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Barakaldo

Reviewed 8 July 2014

We are not fans of this hotel group, but the Ibis Barakaldo exceeded all expectations. It is clean and comfortable. Great location being only 15 minutes from the Bilbao Ferry terminal. and it is next door to the cheapest petrol station in Bilbao - great for filling up before returning to the UK. They even serve food in the hotel and have a good bar. If you have plenty of time it is not a long walk to the shopping centres for last minute purchases.
The biggest difficulty for us was finding the place, as the road signing is not brilliant and some turn-offs are missing if you take the road through the tunnels.

Very clean, best hotel bed I have slept in, big shopping and entertainment centre, including restaurants just a couple of minutes walk away.
We did not eat at the hotel but was told by people that did it was a disappointment.

The position of the hotel is difficult to get to. The hotel itself is of quite a good standard, the bed and pillows are outstanding, one of the best I have used.
The dining room is poor. The board advertising "Menu of the Day" as you walk in showed there was indeed a menu of the day. When we asked the waiter, he said no only a main meal on offer. I also asked if there would be a glass of wine included with the meal, "NO" was the reply.The meal was ok, but when I later asked at reception about the menu of the day, I was told that there was indeed one on offer. So we missed what could have been a very pleasant meal through very poor communication with the waiter. I will not visit your hotel dining room there again, very poor standard.

Accommodation fine with on site parking but, restaurant service a bit slow with little choice and, when we stayed a number of items on the menu were unavailable. Good for an overnight before or after ferry.

We have stayed in this hotel many times as it is very convenient for the ferry port.
It has recently be upgraded with lovely comfortable beds and bedding.
It is a little out of town but there is a bus stop near by.
It is by a shopping mall which also has cinema and ten pin bowling and a few places to eat.
Free secure car parking, essential for travelling back and forward from UK to Spain

Taking groups regularly to Morocco via the Bilbao ferry port, this is a really useful location.
The hotel is perhaps 10 minutes from the port; next to a useful filling station and near to shopping complexes.
Recently refitted, the rooms are spotless and comfortable. The food - for Ibis - is good; the breakfast, a good choice and staff very efficient and pleasant.
Entrance/car park awkard to access, although hotel very visible from major roads.
Car park appears acceptably secure.
