Strategically located near the center of the town, this hotel is convenient to all the amenities. Located across the atreet from the shopping center on one side and large park on the other, in the vicinity of the river on the third side, the hotel is very good in providing comfort to even most demanding guests. The only negative thing...

Beautiful hotel in the newer part of Bilbao. Very comfortable,large room with big bathroom and great views. Upscale linens, amenities and nice pool/fitness area. very convenient to Guggenheim, Fine Arts and Old town via Euskotram. Booked well in advance so was also an excellent value. Staff were efficient but cold.

Was a very flash place when built but rooms showing a few signs of wear and tear. Ideal for somewhere reasonable to stay whilst visiting Bilbao. Obviously a busy business hotel with conferences taking place both nights we stayed.

Lovely hotel with beautiful views. Walk along the river to the stunning Guggenheim museum and old town. I have travelled extensively and without a trip to this "delicious" city, I would have been so much poorer! Underground system superb.

Very modern, clean and wonderful hotel! The staff at the front desk were very, very nice and helpful and sweet! The rooms were beautifully decorated and appointed.

We made the reservation through Booking.com and when we arrived were told that we had been upgraded to a wonderful 9th floor suite with a huge covered balcony looking over the city. The staff was great.

Chosen as have stopped a few times in Melia hotels and it's location so close to the Guggenheim (and Red Bull Cliff Diving contest venue). Had top floor room with view over the river. Everything was consistent with standards experienced in other Melia Hotels. Clean, Comfortable with an element of Chic and thoughtful design. Staff were a credit to themselves...

5 star staff, 3 star decor, 5 star bathroom, 5 star bed comfort, perfect location, fairly reasonable price, spotless housekeeping- I think that adds up to a 5 rating. The staff were very accommodating and I felt welcome--only wish I had time to use the pool.
