Our selection of hotels in Madrid

Our top-picks in Bilbao

The hotel landscape has changed a lot in recent years in Bilbao. Almost as much as the city! 

Bilbao used to be an industrial city and it has now become a top tourist destination in Northern Spain

This transformation has impacted its hotels too. A good number of hotels are new, either transformed buildings or new constructions, whilst many other hotels have been fully refurbished. 

As in all of our hotel guides in Spain our local Bilbao team started with a wide selection of properties. This was then shorten following our selection criteria. Each of the hotels analysed needs to comply with certain criteria in order to be included in our list of recommended hotels in Bilbao. 

We do not only select the most obvious, luxurious hotels in Bilbao. That would be pretty easy but also rather useless since not everybody can afford the most expensive hotels. Our Bilbao hotel guide is meant to help all types of travelers, no matter their budget. We select teh hotels in Bilbao that in our view offer better value for money at different price ranges. 

We do also cover more districts than just the city center in order to provide options for travelers who prefer to stay at quieter locations and who also look for easy parking. We trust you will find the best fit for your needs amongst our best hotels in Bilbao picks.
