Great place right in the heart of Bilbao. Very convenient, the room was quite big and incredibly clean. The size of the bathroom was also a nice surprise. You have plenty of places to eat at your doorstep and the places to visit are within walking distance. Don't miss the "pintxos walk". Our recepcionist was really kind and helpful. Thank...

Lovely hotel, situated in the Casco Viejo (Old Town) area. Friendly, helpful staff. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet ( room 301 ). The bathroom was first rate. No tea/coffee facilities, or breakfast. However, there is a plethora of tapas bars to accommodate you. Finding your way to the Casual Gurea is quite straightforward. Take the Bizkaibus 3247 from...

We stayed here for four nights and were really happy. The location is impossible to beat and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was fine and we had no trouble with noise. Although they don't do breakfast there is a pretty well equipped communal kitchen area so we found that whipping up a yoghurt and fruit breakfast...

In the old town, this is very well placed. The reception was friendly and helpful. The room was a little spartan but adequate and clean. A shame they don't offer breakfast. It suited us for a one night stop.

What a brilliant hotel! Clean, comfortable, perfectly located informal and great value for money.

The hotel is very well located in the old town. Staff is very pleasant and helpful. But... If you want to sleep at night, forget about that. There is no acoustic insulation whatsoever. You can hear the people in the next-door room talk (and do other things) and you hear every guest arriving late walking through the hallway. It's very...

Having booked for ourselves and another couple, I was a little nervous to read on Trip Advisor about the building works spoiling some guests stay. I was delighted to find all of the work completed.

Stayed recently in Casual Gurea, rooms on one floor of building. Room was large, clean but very warm. No proper air conditioning but two fans provided. Adequate but we slept with porch doors open all night, not ideal in festival season with outside noise. We paid €95 for one night which I think is steep but saying that for convenience...

Noisy overpriced, hard to find and small rooms. Apart from that it's ok. My title says it all really, it's in Bilbao which is a great city, however this accommodation is way overpriced.
