perfect for the ferry. rooms clean, comfy bed booked online so 52 euro compared to 69 if you turn up on the day. close to supermarket and restsraunts.down sides, pricey burnt pannini, no hand towels, and not the hotels fault but some plonker starting a noisy smelly diesel he left to idle for 20 mins under our window at 7am.
certainly not one of the best accour hotel we have stayed in. it is obviously relying on its position close to the ferry port to provide a below standard experience.
the room reeked of tobacco smoke, obviously a previous occupier had been smoking in the room, not their fault but they could have made attempts to remove the smell as it must have been obvious to the maid when she cleaned the room.
we stayed for dinner - big mistake the food was frozen/microwaved and barely edible. we had also booked for breakfast - another big mistake food once again very poor and had to keep asking for empty platters to be refilled
we have stayed in several Accour hotels and this is by far the worst one - we will not be returning
The hotel is nicely situated beside the A8 motorway, fifteen minutes from the ferry terminal. Barakaldo is a convenient place. We had menu del dia at the IKEA store, which is opposite the hotel, a five minute walk, for those fit enough to do so. The town of Barakaldo has a number of bars and squares which are worth a look, too.
The evening meal! At an Ibis... we were blown away! Great Food! and a good price! Service Was Excellent.
Room was usual Ibis style comfy and basic. Did I say about the food? The service we had from the waitress was brilliant.
Car Park shared with Budget hotel so full, and you have to park in the back streets. Lots of men stood around in these areas at night. My partner didn't feel safe. We moved car a few times.
Stayed at the Ibis Bilbao Barakaldo as our Bilbao - Portsmouth Ferry crossing got delayed by 24 hours. The hotel was typical Ibis standard - OK but not good. Our room smelt heavily of cigarette smoke which lingered in our clothes until we got them washed.
The room was clean and the bathroom was large enough. The shower base was very slippy underfoot so care needs to be taken when entering the cubicles.
The reception staff were friendly.
