Arrived to the airport and searched for the shuttle location. The shuttle is in disguise as it's labelled Goldcar with a small Holiday Inn sign so missed the first shuttle and had to wait for the next. Picked up the shuttle from the airport to the hotel which was quickly at the HIE. On arrival to the hotel the reception...

Great hotel conveniently located for the airport and with on-site car rental (goldcar, not recommended from my own experience). Strangely, travelling as a family of 4, we had to book 2 rooms, as the hotel only seemed to accommodate 2 children alongside a single adult, which felt odd but it was cheap enough

We had an early flight from the Bilbao airport and chose the Holiday Inn Express. It's a 10 minute drive to the airport. The hotel is a pleasant business hotel with clean mid-size rooms, pretty much your standard Holiday Inn Express. Staff were helpful. There's lots of adjacent free parking. The ample breakfast buffet opens at 5 am, so you...

We had a first floor room opposite the lifts with a view of the motorway. Window could be opened. Quiet hotel which was clean and comfortable. Tea making facilities in room. However tea and coffee and creamer...

Nothing very special about this hotel. We drove in to Bilbao for a flight early next morning. We needed somewhere close and with a shuttle bus service. This hotel fit the bill. It is clean and reasonably priced. The staff there is helpful. There is no sign at the airport that points you to the shuttle bus stop. It is...

It is very near to the airport so good for very early flights. Only a couple of minutes to the airport but hotel location is not that easy to find - you see it but hard to find correct road. Rooms are small although ok, nothing fancy. Good beds and pillows. Wifi ok, free parking outside. Airport shuttles; if you...

A very nice place, New, clean and near the airport with a shuttle that takes you between the hotel and the airport. Can also get a shuttle to the bus system that takes you around Bilbao. Very pretty city to visit and very easy to get transportation that is inexpensive without renting a car and worrying about parking.

Only stay here if you need to rest between flights. No pool, no gym, but at least a restaurant that opens at 8:00 p.m. Clean. Wish something was around here. We checked in at 2:00 p.m. Husband returned car and we'll shuttle to airport in the morning. We are now stranded here. Wish we'd have flown out this night. Bilbao...
