Convenient for Bilbao Airport Departure

It is the closest hotel to the airport. The 7-seater shuttle van starts at 5:15 a.m. and runs frequently. Once you have made a room reservation, you can request a shuttle reservation, which is one thing less to worry about if you have an early morning departure like we did. To take the shuttle upon landing, you need to go to the Departure level; the van does not go to the Arrivals level. Rooms are standard Holiday Inn Express quality, which we considered fine for a 1-night stay. Our room faced the nearby highway, but there was no traffic noise. Continental breakfast was above-average. Cautions: - The hotel website provides driving directions, but be aware there are a couple of confusing turns (for we North Americans!) within sight of the hotel that are not described on the website. - Dinner options are limited. We didn't try the next-door restaurant because it opened late (8 p.m.). We went to the airport, but the only facilities in the public area are sandwich shops. Best bet for dinner if you have a rental car is to keep the car until you have found a restaurant, and then turn the car in. Collapse

Not a good start - no shuttle bus despite arriving before 11.30 cut off and having let them have our arrival time - huge taxi queue. Then twin room not double and despite being a non smoking room it smelled of smoke . The towels were overdue to be replaced - paper thin ( and my wife tells me I had the good one ) But a good nights sleep, a surprisingly good continental breakfast, a helpful receptionist & maintenance man meant I could cut the lock on our case ( granddaughter swopped keys on us grrrrrr ) - all of that combined with 79euros gets them a good review.

Stayed here ONLY for 1 night as our arrival to Bilbao was delayed really late. We were going to drive to San Sebastian directly, but weather was not permitting - rained quite heavily and we were unfamiliar with the drive. Hence, we decided to stay for 1 night and left in the morning to San Sebastian. My advice to those who may have similar plan like ours: ** Rent a car and drive directly to San Sebastian (only 1 hrs), or ** Drive to the Bilbao proper where one can find a better and more decent place for an overnight stay. We got charged $130/night for a room that may be worth $50. It was really a crappy place. If we were to pay $50-60/night, we probably would have just gone with it and would not have been writing bad reviews here. TV was made out of an old computer LCD monitor that's not even working. If you really have to stay at this place, just be prepared. 1. Ensure you don't get ripped off 2. If you arrive after 9PM, bring some snacks and water for the evening (from the airport that you depart from). There's nothing at Bilbao airport at 9PM! If you arrive at the Hotel Horrible Inn Express, they may advice you to go to the restaurant next door called "Restaurant Urbe" -- the only place that is open until 10PM. Obviously and unfortunately, we did this - we arrived late, were hungry and went to Urbe. We ordered (total cost almost 65 Euro) (a). Jamon Iberia (b). Pasta with meat ragu sauce (c). Bachalau (cod fish). (d). 1 bottle of water All orders were beyond appalling. Jamon was more like thinly sliced plastic served with bread. Pasta was overcooked, the sauce was really disgusting. Canned/bottled pasta sauce from the grocery stores taste better than what they cook (even "Chef Boyarde"). Cod fish was stale. Everything was not edible. We only had a bite, got ripped off and left with disgust. This place probably operates based on the fact that they're the only place that's open next to the hotel, they can trap tourists, overcharge them as they are aware that these tourists won't be coming back. - It's really a sad way to operate a business. We wonder if the Horrible Inn and this Restaurant Urbe are operated by the same owner. Again, if you really have to stay at this Horrible Inn hotel: 1. Bring some instant noodles (those you cook in the cup, and just add hot water. I did see a microwave at the lobby). 2. Snacks and water (buy these at the airport you depart from). Collapse

Stayed on first night of holiday as arrived in evening. Free shuttle was useful. On first evening returned to airport on shuttle and got bus into Bilboa city centre for 1.45 Euro taxi back latter was 25 Euro. The hotel is standard Holiday Inn with free breakfast. We found the staff to all be friendly and helpful, a good place to stay if you need to be close to airport. We chose to collect rental car first thing next morning which worked well. there is little in surrounding area apart from a restaurant and another small hotel. Collapse
