Less than 50 metres from the Palacio de Congresos Exhibition Centre. You can walk to the Guggenheim Museum and the San Mames Stadium in less than 10 minutes. Isn't it convenient enough for your biz travel? Designed by famed architect Ricardo Legorreta as a tribute to the Basque sculptor Eduardo Chillida, the five star Meliá Bilbao is as much a piece of modern art as it is hotel, like the surprising sixth floor’s open-air heated pool. Spacious and luxury rooms tower over the city. The hotel’s Aizian Restaurant was awarded a Michelin star in 2014.
