Good hotel, close to the airport

Pros: Location to airport and the free parking.
Cons: Cleanliness of the room was OK, however, the bathroom had the odor of mildew.
Location: This is an airport hotel. Although close to downtown Bilbao, it is not walking distance. If you want to experience Bilbao choose another...
We were warmly greeted by the front desk and quickly had our room. We chose this hotel for the basic amenities and proximity to the airport because we had an early flight. The breakfast is available early ...although posted as opening at 6am...we were able to have something at 5:30am. The shuttle to the airport is available early...5am. The shuttle only takes 5 minutes to get to the airport.

Convenient, with gluten free restaurant options

Pros: Free breakfast, gluten free food available, convenience to airport
Cons: Nothing close, expensive wireless access
This hotel was just what I wanted - convenient to the Bilbao airport where I had to catch an early morning flight. The free shuttle between the airport and the hotel worked well. I took it four times - once when I arrived at the airport by bus from San Sebastian, two more times when I went to the airport to take the public bus into Bilbao center and back, and last when I went to catch my flight. The staff were fine as was the room. The one downside was the fee for wireless, which seemed unnecessarily high. I was especially happy with the hotel restaurant where I had to eat dinner because the staff worked with me to make a gluten free dinner. Because I have celiac disease, this is always a concern for me, and it's not always the case that chefs and waitstaff are so understanding and flexible. Here they made sure I had a delicious and safe meal. The morning breakfast was not great for a celiac, but they at least served some fresh fruit and yoghurt.
