Overall review

The Hotel Mercure Jardines de Albia is one of the safest bets in Bilbao. At the Mercure you get exactly what you pay for. This hotel is a perfect option for you if you enjoy city hotels, well managed, with a fantastic breakfast and extra services like a gym and a spa centre. 

If you usually prefer boutique-style hotels you may find the Mercure Jardines de Albia may lack some character though. In such case we would recomend you have a look at the Tayko hotel, with a similar location and a bit more charm. 

The Mercure Jardines de Alba can be a good choice for families. The pleasant promenade next to the river is at less than 5 minutes walk and the hotel offers family rooms.
