« Another good stay at a reliable hotel. »

For the fourth time in a year we stayed here, with our dog, before getting the ferry to the UK. The staff are always friendly - the breakfast buffet is superb. A good pet friendly hotel with safe parking.

« A normal Novotel, but with poor WiFi and average service »

The hotel is OK. Rooms in the usual Novotel design (not renewed yet to the new "superior" standards found in other Novotels). WiFi was unusable in our junior suite and poor elsewhere, and service depended on the employee - a breakfast cook prepared egg white omelettes for my wife in the weekend, but another one, a lady, refused to do so during the weekdays - go figure. Dishes could be cleaner.

« Great hotel »

We had a very pleasasnt stay at this Novotel. The staff was very nice and helpfull. The hotel was good equiped. The breakfast was excellent and the drinks served well. We went to downtown Bilbao for tapa's so we don't know about diner but it is probably also good. The swimming was a bit to cold. But the good thing was that there was lifeguard present.

« Worst experience in Accor Hotel »

Good accommodation and helpful staff. Desk staff had good English. Hotel facilities are good, including free internet and swimming pool. Underground car park has lift to hotel but hotel not easy to find.

Thank you for your kind feedback and for taking the time to share with the Tripadvisor community. We are pleased you enjoyed our stay and the service offered by our staff and that you have appreciated our free wifi service and swimming pool.

On our web page guests can find our GPS coordinates in order to find easily the hotel. Once again thank you for your comments and we look forward to welcoming you back to Novotel Bilbao Exhibition Center. Regards Jorge Lepe Muñoz General Manager

« Good Hotel to Stay in Bilbao Area »

My family and I used this hotel as a base to explore the greater area of Bilbao. It is well connected - only if you have a car. Parking is a little big expensive, compared to the price of room. Sofabed

Thank you again for your comments and we look forward to welcoming you back to our hotel in the near future. Jorge Lepe General Manager

« Professional and helpful »

The reception staff were very helpful when we had a non-smoking room which smelled of smoke. They gave us a guided choice of 3 rooms and we were able to find a smoke free, cool and quiet room, which was well placed for transport links.

Thank you for your time and for sharing your feedback with us. We are always eager to hear from our guests in order to keep improving our services and standards.

« Fine hotel in Barakaldo »

I regularly visit this hotel on short business trips. It has never disappointed. I always get a polite and efficient welcome and the rooms are comfortable. Breakfast buffet is very good - both variety and quality. Internet access is good and reliable. Location is only ideal if you are going to the exhibition centre or, like me, you are visiting a nearby business.
