Nice hotel in a very centric location. Rooms have a good standard and are clean. Breakfast is good, the friendliness at the reception could be improoved. The bar in the evening is nice, maybe a little cold. Ramp out of the parking is very steep.

Stayed here for two nights and loved the large spacious room and balcony over looking the city. The hotel is well situated and a short walk to the shops, bars and restaurants. The hotel and room were very comfortable and the staff helpful.

The hotel urgently needs to undergo some significant renovation. Room was worn-down, stains on the carpet and from the bathroom there was a bad smell. No amenities like free water are granted.

The Melia Bilbao is a nice & pleasant hotel, centrally located & with good service. But it misses the mark in a few aspects where a 5 star should not. We spent 1 week during Xmas 2016, which gave us an ample feel for the hotel: 1. There is no one, no porter at the door. But there is a...

We had paid for a premium room but arrived early and none were available so opted to pay an extra 40 Euros per night for a suite (703), as breakfast would have cost us 28 Euros anyway. They were obviously not expecting anyone in the suite as there was a kettle but no cups etc. So we asked for cups,...

Overall, hotel was very good. My wife and I were in Bilbao for a vacation. However, there are not enough closets for 2 people. There are two separate single beds tucked together instead of one queen or king bed. There are no complimentary water or coffee for a 5 star (?) hotel in the room or in the lobby. You...

Nice room, has beautiful view on the river, good gym and swimming pool. Breakfast was excellent, food more than enough and very various. Staff friendly and accommodating. Very interesting interior of the hotel.

The hotel was in a great location to walk to most locations. Staff were very friendly. Parking was very easy. Upon check in they upgraded us to a suite as it was our honeymoon and the room was fantastic. Highly recommend, great value and great place.
